  1. Oh, thank you, thank you, thank you! I've always wanted to see the Animaniacs on TV again! :D

  2. Hello
    You would be perhaps interested to know that Tiny Toons, Animaniacs and Pinky und der Brain is currently played on German Boomerang. The most funny is that Animaniacs is at 21h15 and Pinky & the Brain at 23h55 !!

  3. My wife is going to kill me!

  4. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! YAAAAAAAAAAAY! First Volume 4 is coming out, now they're showing episodes on TV again! Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeah <3.

    What next? O:

  5. True or false: "Prom Night" was made and animated seasons ago and was just sitting around in the can before it was inserted into the episode listed here. This is what I've heard; is it true? And if true, what else was lying around that never made it?

  6. It may have been sitting around...but not too long...maybe a year. We used virtually everything we sent into production. No complete Animaniacs segment sent into production was ever jettison.

    1. That's good to know. Of course I wish there were those unreleased gems we've all have passed around rumors of.
