This song would have been awesome if it had all the nations in the world and not so much errors:

  • The following countries are omitted: Singapore, South Africa, Armenia, San Marino, Lithuania, Melanesia, Micronesia, Polynesia, Georgia and Wales. Apparently Burkina Faso is also not featured.
  • San Juan is not really a nation but the capital of Puerto Rico which isn’t a nation either – it’s a US dependency
  • Caribbean and Asia are not nations but the name of a sea and a continent
  • Tibet is not a country but is considered part of China. Although… they really don’t want to be. Just ask the Dalai Lama. (I’ll let this error pass)

Changes:

  • Zaire is now the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Sudan is no longer united: it split into Sudan and South Sudan.
  • Czechoslovakia is no longer an united country split into Czech Republic and Slovakia
  • Korea is still devideded between North Korea (the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea – huh! What’s so democratic about them?) and South Korea (the Republic of Korea)

The Song featured in the second episode of Animaniacs. In the song, Yakko Warner name all the (as of 1992-1993) nations of the world to the tune of the “Mexican Hat Dance”. A clip of the sing-along version of this song has been viewed more than six millon times on Youtube. Rob Paulsen, the voice of Yakko.

The song was written by Randy Rogel a writer from Batman: The Animated Series, whose son was studying geography. When he saw that “United States, Canada, Mexico, Panama” all rhymed, he got to work on the lyrics and sent the song to Animaniacs.

 

Here’s another one from the Animaniacs-series:

Wakko’s America lyrics

WAKKO’S AMERICA (Episode 21)
Music traditional (Turkey in the Straw). Lyrics by Randy Rogel.

Wakko:
Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Indianapolis, Indiana
And Columbus is the capital of Ohio
There’s Montgomery, Alabama, south of Helena, Montana
Then there’s Denver, Colorado, under Boise, Idaho.

Texas has Austin, then we go north
To Massachusetts’ Boston, and Albany, New York
Tallahassee, Florida, and Washington, D.C.
Santa Fe, New Mexico, and Nashville, Tennessee.

Elvis used to hang out there a lot, ya know.

Trenton’s in New Jersey, north of Jefferson, Missouri
You’ve got Richmond in Virginia; South Dakota has Pierre
Harrisburg’s in Pennsylvania and Augusta’s up in Maine
And here is Providence, Rhode Island, next to Dover, Delaware.

Concord, New Hampshire, just a quick jaunt
To Montpelier, which is up in Vermont
Hartford’s in Connecticut, so pretty in the fall
And Kansas has Topeka; Minnesota has St Paul.

Juneau’s in Alaska and there’s Lincoln in Nebraska
And it’s Raleigh out in North Carolina and then
There’s Madison, Wisconsin, and Olympia in Washington
Phoenix, Arizona, and Lansing, Michigan.

Here’s Honolulu; Hawaii’s a joy
Jackson, Mississippi, and Springfield, Illinois
South Carolina with Columbia down the way
And Annapolis in Maryland on Chesapeake Bay.

They have wonderful clam chowder.

Cheyenne is in Wyomin’ and perhaps you make your home in
Salt Lake City out in Utah, where the Buffalo roam
Atlanta’s down in Georgia, and there’s Bismarck, North Dakota
And you can live in Frankfort in your old Kentucky home.

Salem in Oregon; from there we join
Little Rock in Arkansas; Iowa’s got Des Moines
Sacramento, California; Oklahoma and its city
Charleston, West Virginia, and Nevada, Carson City.

That’s all the capitals there are!

 

School would have been so much cooler if we were taught that. Alas no! But it does make for an awesome resource for pub quizzes!

Anvils/Anvillania

Cartoon scene in Animaniacs: where Yakko is king of Anvillania

Cartoon scene in Animaniacs: where Yakko is king of Anvillania

I’ve always pondered the purpose of anvils in cartoons. To tell the truth I didn’t know what an anvil really was except to inflict pain on cartoon villains. Because it is such ancient tools the sole purpose of these objects are lost or virtually unknown, and only recognized in cartoons.

Historically, the anvil is a block hard surface on which another object is struck – often used by black smiths.

Got it! But where did the idea come from to drop anvils on villains in cartoons?

The idea of an anvil falling from the sky and landing on someone’s head (when you really think about it) seems very nonsensical. But within the rules/physics of cartoons it totally makes sense. (more on this sure to follow).

According to some sites an anvil is the standard prop for cartoon gags. It’s the epitome of a heavy and clumsy object perfect for dropping on a villain. The anvil is sometimes replaced with safes or grand pianos and is usually grouped with the “shadow of impending doom” and a bomb whistle.

It is all part of Cartoon physics:

Everything falls faster than an anvil and it will always land on the character’s head.

Other cartoon physics principles include:

Running off a clip and hanging in midair until the cartoon character realize it

cartoon physics

Certain cartoons can pass through solid walls painted to resemble tunnel entrances (very popular in Looney Tunes).

Cartoon physics are often explained by the characters themselves: in one Animaniacs episode Yakko, Wakko and Dot explains that toons are allowed to bend or break natural laws for the purposes of comedy. It’s all about comedic timing.

Anvils are also used as a 4th of July celebration: two anvils are placed on top of each other filled with gunpowder. When ignited it explodes/fires into the air. Much like fireworks today.

In another Animaniacs episode Yakko becomes the king of Anvillania. the national anthem (after a super boring, put to sleep anthem) they change it to this:

Yakko: It’s made of solid iron…

Dot: It weighs a ton or two…

Wakko: We know you’d like to meet it…

All Together: It wants to meet you too!

— Animaniacs, “The Anvil Song”

The first use of an anvil in a cartoon was in “A tale of two kitties”, a 1942 cartoon directed by Bob Clampett. It features the two cartoon cats named Babbit and Catstello (parodies of comedy team Abbot and Costello). Babbit looks to me more like a wolf than a cat. They try to catch and eat the first version of Tweety bird (an ugly, pink baby bird).

babbitand catstello anvil

The most famous uses of a falling anvil is cemented in the Road Runner cartoons. The first episode it was used was in “Beep Beep” in 1952.

Squit : Ow! Come on! Knock it off!

The Monkey Song

The Monkey song

The Monkey song

Dr Scratchansniff : One Monday morning I got up late
And there were these monkeys outside the gate.
The guard tried to stop them but he had no luck
The monkeys got free and they ran amuck!

DrSns : I don’t know what to say the monkeys won’t do!
Yakko, Wakko & Dot : Don’t know what to say the monkeys won’t do!

YW+D : Don’t know what to say the monkeys won’t do!
DrSns : Monkeys dance then I dance too!

But I’m telling you, friends, those monkeys was quick!
‘Cause when I returned, much to my disgrace
Those monkeys had the nurse in a mad embrace!

Nurse : I don’t know what to say the monkeys won’t do.
Yakko : For a nickel I’ll give you a clue!
Dot : I didn’t know your eyes were blue!
DrSns : I don’t know what to say the monkeys won’t do!

History

Producers Steven Spielberg and Tom Ruegger created the series after a previous series, Tiny Toon Adventures, was a huge success. Ruegger wanted to base the characters on the personalities of his three young sons (his eldest son was the inspiration behind Yakko). Ruegger was inspired by the large WB logo on the water tower at Warner Brother Studios.

At first there were 4 Warner sibilings: Yakky, Smakky, Wakky and their little sister, Dot. They later morphed into Yakko, Wakko and Dot. They were also 3 young ducks, but changed to dog-like characters when they realised that there were already too many duck cartoons. Their exact species is supposed to be unknown, but it was found that their species was labelled as “Cartoonus Characterus”.

It is said that the Animaniacs characters personalities and character traits are similar to the Marx Brothers and Jerry Lewis who “wreak[ed] havoc” in “serious situations.” The Warners are portrayed as cartoon stars from the early 1930s. Simple black and white drawings were very common such as Felix the cat and early versions of Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse.

Yakko, Wakko and Dot

Dot’s full name is: Princess Angelina Contessa Louisa Francesca Banana Fanna Bo Besca the Third.

I love how the series can be enjoyed on two levels: kids love it because of the slapstick and older audiences can enjoy and appreciate the word play and adult humor. Example of word play: when Yakko, Wakko and Dot wants to buy another character’s Garage because they think “Garage Sale” refers to that.

I love the parodies and spoof references in the series. “The Rain in Spain-y” refers to “My Fairlady”, Goodfeathers is a play on “Goodfellows”. Animaniacs parodies popular TV shows, movies and caricatured celebrities.

Because of Steven Spielberg’s involvement in the series, a running gag was that his films were mentioned in the series and even a caricature of Spielberg himself appeared a few times. In the episode “Hooked on a ceiling” Spielberg was made eminence of the Sistine Chapel and Warners painted E.T. on its ceiling (in place of God) reaching out to Elliot (in place of Adam).

Other characters:

Dr. Scratchansniff: Unfortunately, I couldn’t find out why he has such a peculiar name. Maybe it’s because he is a psychiatrist whose job it is to “scratch and sniff” into the character’s lives??? He is the psychiatrist of Hollywood and it his job to teach the Warner siblings some manners. Later on he becomes a father figure to them.

Dr. Scratchansniff

Dr. Scratchansniff

Here follows some of my favourite quotes involving him:

Dr. Scratchensniff: I know what you kids want… you want to talk to Mr. Puppet Head!
[imitating another character]
Dr. Scratchensniff: Hello, kids. I’m Mr. Puppet Head. Tell me why you kids make the jokes?
[the Warners are silent]
Dr. Scratchensniff: Why aren’t you talking to Mr. Puppet Head? No no, it’s very simple watch this… Hello, Mr. Puppet Head. How are you?
[imitating Mr. Puppet Head]
Dr. Scratchensniff: I am fine, Dr. Scratchensniff. How are you?
[normal voice]
Dr. Scratchensniff: I am fine, Mr. Puppet Head. Did you have a yummy breakfast?
[imitating Mr. Puppet Head]
Dr. Scratchensniff: Oh, yes. Very yummy. How was your breakfast?
[normal voice]
Dr. Scratchensniff: Mine was as yummy as yours.
[to the Warners]
Dr. Scratchensniff: Now, you see? Isn’t that easy?
Yakko: Are you sure you don’t need to see a P-psychiatrist?
Dr. Scratchensniff: I AM a P-psych… I mean a psychiatrist! I AM! I AM! I AM!
[uses the hand his puppet is on to tear off his hair]
Yakko: Mr. Puppet Head’s hungry.

Dr. Scratchensniff: [showing Dot an inkblot] What do you see here?
Dot: I’d say you’re not a very good artist.
Dr. Scratchensniff: I didn’t draw it.
Dot: Then whoever did needs to go back to school.
Dr. Scratchensniff: No, no. It’s an inkblot.
Dot: I’ll say.
Dr. Scratchensniff: It’s not supposed to look like anything!
Dot: Then you did a very good job.
Dr. Scratchensniff: I DIDN’T DRAW IT! Don’t you think it looks like a little kitty cat or a butterfly or something?
Dot: No.
[takes off the inkblot and changes it into a butterfly]
Dot: THAT’S a butterfly.

Dr. Scratchensniff: What is on your mind?
Wakko: My hat.
Dr. Scratchensniff: No, your hat is on your head. What is on your MIND?
Wakko: My… skin?
Dr. Scratchensniff: No, that’s on your head. What is on your MIND?
Wakko: Oh, I got it! My hair!
Dr. Scratchensniff: Your hair is on your head!
[tears off some of his hair]
Dr. Scratchensniff: THIS IS HAIR! THIS IS HAIR! IT’S NOT ON MY MIND! IT’S ON MY HEAD!
Wakko: No, it’s in your hand.

Dr. Scratchensniff: Any word that comes to mind.
Yakko: Brain.
Dr. Scratchensniff: But we haven’t started.
Yakko: Begun.
Dr. Scratchensniff: No, wait.
Yakko: Yield.
Dr. Scratchensniff: Stop!
Yakko: Cease.
Dr. Scratchensniff: SILENCE!
Yakko: Quiet.
Dr. Scratchensniff: ENOUGH!
Yakko: Plenty.
Dr. Scratchensniff: Would you please listen?
Yakko: Hear.
Dr. Scratchensniff: NO, YOU STUPID KID! YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND!
Yakko: Comprehend.
Dr. Scratchensniff: Get out! Get out! Get OUT!
Yakko: Leave, leave, leave.
Dr. Scratchensniff: These Varner Brothers are driving me crazy!
Yakko: Insane. Unhinged. Demented.

I just love it how they make fun of psychiatry!

Hello Nurse! 

Hello Nurse!

Hello Nurse!

Because Yakko and Wakko always greets her with this saying she doesn’t really have a name.

Slappy Squirrel

Stop with the singing already!

Stop with the singing already!

I like her best because she is not afraid to make fun of old Hollywood. She is a cynical, retired squirrel and is the aunt of Skippy Squirrel (voiced by Nathan Ruegger – eldest son of Tom Ruegger). Slappy is voiced by Sherri Stone.

Mindy: who always says “Silly puppy” to Runt or “Okay, lady” to her mother.

Rita and Runt: I like the spoof Les Miseranimals – Les Miserables.

Pinky and the Brain:

Pinky and the brain

Pinky and the brain

Ruegger modeled Pinky after Warner Bros Animation director and artist Eddie Fitzgerald, who had the same sunny disposition and often said two of Pinky’s catch phrases: “Narf” and “Egad!”

narf!

I named one of my dogs after Pinky. She also has a pea brain.

Insides of Pinky and Brain

Insides of Pinky and Brain

Brain is based on another Warner Bros Animation artist and writer Tom Milton. Even though the resemblance is uncanny look of Brain is not modeled after Orson Welles, but the Wellesian voice is no coincidence. This is the work of Maurice LaMarche.

They got their own spinoff show that ran for 65 episodes from 1995-1998.

Goodfeathers: 

I especially like the episode were they make fun of “West Side Story –  West Side Pigeons.” “I feel pretty – I feel feathery”

goodfeathers

that smile can killI

I swear that smile could kill!

That’s enough for today! Next post will be about Anivilania and anvils.
