There's Baloney in our Slacks (again)

"This is it. The second volume of Speilberg's acclaimed animated series "Animaniacs" featuring an overload of original characters and episodes to keep you laughin' till next week. If you haven't lived during the past decade, that is to say you've never even heard of "Animaniacs", you really don't know what you're missing. By the way, there seems to be a few characters I seem to have missed from the volume 1 review, which are:
Minerva Mink: Like Hello Nurse, no man - or man-beast - can resist her exquisite beauty, that is unless she meets the guy of her dreams.
Chicken Boo: A six-foot chicken who claims to be a master of disguise, but he really isn't.
Randy Beaman: At times this weird little boy tells the weirdest of stories.
Katie Kaboom: She's your average teenage girl with a not-so-average problem.
Mr. Skullhead: An odd bone-faced fellow who stars in a huge number of shorts entitled "Good Idea, Bad Idea". It wasn't long until he had his very own episode, which is in this volume.
Besides the actual episodes, there are a ton of various other shorts starring the Warner Brothers and the Warner Sister and friends, such as "Dot's Poetry Corner", "The Great Wakkorotti", and, of course, "The Wheel of Morality". There's even a catchy song or two in at least one episode. Hey, this is "Animaniacs", anything can happen in this series.
Such randomness features a plethora of puns and references to actual events and/or stories and movies along with hilarious antics and such like dropping anvils and dynamite down one's pants. Some episodes also have very distinct themes like "Cartoons in Wakko's Body", "Useless Facts", and my favorite, "Animaniacs Stew".
So get your Yakko, Wakko, and Dot on with this new release on a 5-disc DVD set. And don't forget to check out the feature "The Writers Flipped, They Have No Script" where we get to meet the madcap minds behind the stories as they discuss their best episodes of the series. You know, all this excitement is making me geared up for volume three, which I hope is real soon !"
The beginning of the end of boingy, boingy

"Volume 2 is good. The series was great. However, this shows all too well what happens when focus groups influence and formulas become rooted. In this volume Pinky & the Brain begin their domination of Animaniac-land. The focus groups had said that the Punch & Judy pair were crowd pleasers and so they started hogging more and more of the screen. In that same vein, Slappy and nephew grow in popularity as they now spend most of their time blowing up things, with the dialog being the true victim of the onslaught. Finally, who the heck thought that the GOOD IDEA/BAD IDEA guy could carry a 5 to 10 minute skit? Still, Wakko, Yakko, and Dot show there mastery of the double and triple entendre and the lesser Animaniacs shine when they are given the screen. My kids (6 & 3) love the slapstick (even if I now cringe at some of the carnage) and the plethora of war episodes (historical note: Gulf War I was going on during this time period) has let me have decent discussions about the current Gulf War with my little boingy boingies. I recommend this collection, but if you can only buy 1 vlume, make it #1."
Volume 2 of the great 90's cartoon series

"I probably don't need to go into how great this show was. Others have already done that in their reviews of Volume 1 released back in July. This second volume contains some of my favorite episodes, so I was really thrilled to have them. There are several hours of these great cartoons here for you to discover or (as in my case) re-discover. It seems they don't make shows like this anymore. Highly recommended."
This is the best season.
