I'm not exactly sure what episode this went in, since I haven't seen the whole thing, but I'd be remiss if I didn't post this cartoon anyway. This is quite possibly the best Animaniacs cartoon they ever did, or at least it's one of my all time favorites. It's pure genius! I sure hope they put it on DVD soon because I want a high quality version of my own. There's just so much in it that I have to watch it several times to see it all. If you've seen the original Macarena video, this one mimics it pretty well. I hear Warner Brothers even bought the rights to the song just so they could use it in this cartoon, instead of having to do a parody and worry about legal junk.

The thing I like most about this one is that all the characters get to interact instead of being stuck in their usual roles. It's fun to see them react to each other, and it's great to see them all dancing and having fun together. Well, except for the mime. He's not dancing. He's just doing mime things, so he needs to die. ;) I especially love the way Slappy is such a wet blanket through the whole thing. She's not going to dance, she's just there to get a paycheck. I love Slappy. She's pure awesome! ;)

I also really like how Hello Nurse and Minerva get places right along side Dot, so they sort of get elevated to her level for a while. I imagine they especially loved singing the line about having people arrested, since they'd be two of the characters that would get the most trouble from rabid fan boys.

I like the way it starts out with Ralph at the beginning. It's so, so wrong, yet so perfect at the same time. I like the way Skippy reacts to the Hippos. Heck, I like just about everything about it. Well, except perhaps for the rapid scene changes. I know that's part of how the video should be, but it would be nice to see individual characters doing the complete dance instead of just snippets.

That is a classic video. It gives them an excellent opportunity to do a parody, and they take it. I like Slappys role too, but it contrasts so well with Skippy's. He just gets into it. But yeah, clean animation, good parody, all around well done.

Maybe there wasn't any legal trouble because the original was published by Warner?

I think it was originally RCA.

Perhaps, but if WB is a parent company to many record brands, they would have a lot of music at their disposal to interchange.

One thing I noticed too, is that when they did the episode of that studio party with all those celebrities (T-2, Batman, Urkel), the celebrities parodied there were also from WB movies or TV shows.

...I think.

I thought WB always had the rights to the macarena since the sheet music was printed in a kids' piano fake book I have.

On the Kids' WB marathon they announced that this was producer Tom Ruegger's favorite Animaniacs cartoon. & it's easy to see why.

I think my favorite part is where slappy times here eye look to camera exactly to the music. brilliant!! second favorite was seeing buttons & runt together. It never dawned on me prior how they never would have seen each other. I don't even think they were in the same scenes of the Big Wrap Party (or new year's party redub for Kids' WB new year's special).

& the best part is that except for the end of the last verse (where a phrase or two is cut) you could actually do the dance to it if you wanted to - the characters do!!! so... so well done!

although, I would argue that there were a few shots of Ralph on Tiny Toons that were just as - if not more - disturbing than his appearance here.

LOL when I found this the first time, I was like "What in the Sam Benny Hill is this?" when I played it I was like "Holy Cow! This is the Macerena, but Animaniacs styled!"

Yeah, I was pretty blown away by it, too. At first I thought it was something fan-made, but it was just too high quality for that. I sure wish it were on DVD.

Thanks for the link. If he's got a lot of stuff not on the DVDs, then I'll have to check out his other videos. There's still so much I've yet to see!
