My teen years involved some very rudimentary daily rituals. Although most were common to anyone in my age group, the one ritual I seemed to look forward to most was coming home from school every day to watch Animimaniacs. It was the first cartoon that I really felt fed my child instinct to like cartoons, and fed my adult instinct to like slightly inappropriate comedy and pop culture references. That is primarily what made up Animaniacs. Awesome, retro style animation ala Looney Tunes, and insane, joke-a-minute references that were definitely aimed over the heads of most children.
Animanniacs also did something that many cartoons have tried, but very few have pulled off successfully. It made learning fun and funny. For those reasons alone, it is clear to me this list is long overdue. From the educational to the inappropriate, here are eight utterly awesome Animaniacs moments (with video to back it up).
