My children's childhood memories

Thank you, Sinverguenza, whoever you are...

I used to love watching Animaniacs with my kids when they were little, and it hadn't occurred to me to look for them online until Sinverguenza mentioned it in yesterday's comments. Here's a clip that figured prominently in our home school lesson plan:

How odd, Bill and Stella have also been on an Animaniacs kick lately. Yet more synchronicity: weekend before last, we were out in the woods taking pictures of cicadas and the holes in the ground that they emerged from. It's pretty creepy, almost like something out of a sci-fi flick!

Bubs said...

Now imagine if those cicadas were the size of possums! Now that would be cool!

Stella is at the perfect Animaniacs age, too. Are they on cable again?

Dena said...

No, but they are all over YouTube.

Sinverguenza said...

Glad you enjoyed the anamaniacs flashback. They work on so many levels.

I loved Anamanics. I used to have an Anamaniacs watch; I wonder where it went.

Sorry Bubsy,

I thought Anamaniacs were a lame version of Disney...like Disney Babies. I detest any cartoon with baby versions....like Flinstones Babies?? The worst.

Bubs said...

Kim, wait--are you mistaking Animaniacs with Tiny Toons? Tiny Toons sucked. Animaniacs, along with Pinky and the Brain, were wonderful.

Lulu, an Animaniacs watch sounds cool. Hope you find it while you're packing.

ANIMANIACS ROCK! And they have "pay or play" contracts!

Dino aka Katy said...

love it. I need to learn that song since i have no clue about the whole state capital thing - they didn't cover that back home

I've always LOVED Animaniacs! I even made Eva a Dot cake for her 4th birthday.

I could never figure out why Wacko had a Manchester accent though.

Danny Tagalog said...

I'm with Barbara: why is the accent northern British? Still, for someone with admittedly poor knowledge of all the states, this is a fun way for me to learn and teach my little one!

I also love Animaniacs. I used to watch them everyday after work when I was in college.
