The Warner Brothers, and the Warner Sister, Dot

In going through a box of tee-shirts this morning, I found several Animaniacs shirts I had bought a number of years ago and forgotten. Ah, the fickleness of memory.

I loved Animaniacs. It was a fantastic show, and in many ways one of the best animated television programs of all time. Certainly, it was among the funniest, and its spin-off, Pinky and the Brain, did on occasion surpass the original.

I always thought that the Looney Toons erred in Space Jam by not bringing Yakko, Wakko, and Dot in to deal with the MonStars. Of course, Yakko, Wakko, and Dot would have dealt with the MonStars in an easy five minutes, so the film would have been rather short.

Last week I bought DVDs of Batman: The Animated Series and Challenge of the Super-Friends. I would just as gladly buy an Animaniacs DVD collection. Warner Brothers, are you out there? Are you listening?
