In "Mobster Mash," the Warners tangle with the head of the Mob while dining at a pasta restaurant. Next, the three zany siblings sing about the beautiful "Lake Titicaca." In the last cartoon, "Icebreakers," Runt becomes a sled dog in the Yukon.Written by

[the Mobster henchmen again pick up the Warners and carry them bodily to the door. Camera again changes to outside the restaurant as somehow it is Don Pepperoni who is thrown flying out the door]
I am stupefied as to what has just occurred.

Love animation to bits. It was a big part of my life as a child, especially Disney, Looney Tunes, Hanna Barbera and Tom and Jerry (with tastes broadening further getting older with Pixar, Studio Ghibli and some of the more mature animations out there), and still love it to this day as a young adult whether it's film, television or cartoons. Actually appreciate it even more now, with more knowledge of the different animation styles, directors, studios and what work went into them.
'Animaniacs' has always been one of my favourites. From an early age, it always stood out as one of the most colourful, unique, funniest and cleverest shows, animated and otherwise, ever made. It is not to be dismissed as a show just for children. There is plenty for children to enjoy, any child who loves great animation, humour to laugh at and unique characters will be in heaven. There is more than plenty for adults too, especially the hugely clever in-jokes/poking fun that is likely to be better understood by older viewers with more familiarity for what is being referenced and poked fun at.
This episode is not quite a favourite. Nonetheless, it is enormously entertaining and inventive and never loses its interest value. "Mobster Mash" is the much better segment, it's funnier, wittier and cleverer and the characters compelling more. Don't get me wrong, the others are still very nicely done, just lacking that extra spark.
In all the segments throughout, the animation is very well done, with vibrant colouring, crisp beautiful backgrounds and convincing movements for the characters. The music is not only catchy it is actually memorable as well, with an instantly hummable main theme.
The script and humour are witty and hilarious with clever references and inside jokes throughout. As are the situations no matter how silly they are the characters get into. This all springs from a great concept, some shows have a great concept but don't live up to it.
'Animaniacs' was always one of the finest examples of execution of a great concept doing that and superbly, with the story lines here being funny and endearing. The characters are immensely likable with unique personalities, with no exception.
Characters that are brilliantly voiced by the likes of Rob Paulsen, Tress MacNeille, Jess Harnell, Bernadette Peters and Frank Welker.
In conclusion, great. 9/10 Bethany Cox
