Just what WAS the target demographic of Animaniacs, anyway? It's a shame the heavy reliance on pop culture references will ultimately heavily date it. That whole period of beautiful, clever, irreverent animations was so much a product of what the country was at that time. I miss the rampant cheeky creative energies of the Clinton era.

I loved that show when I was like 12... hell, I still do today, but that's when I first got into it.

I borrowed the DVDs and was sitting there going 'man, I'm 31 and this is STILL clever and enjoyable' along with 'wow, there are soooooo many references I totally didn't get when I saw this when I was younger'. But something, i think wikipedia, that I read implied the main audience was like, 11 year olds, which utterly baffled me.

Oh gods don't get me started on nostalgia for the 90s. Remember how bright and shiny everything was? And how the New Millennium was going to be "THE FUTURE" and there'd be a "long boom" with prosperity and world peace and liberalism forever?

You apparently haven't seen any of the shows they put on Adult Swim.

These are shows on normal network TV. That is a significant difference.
