The extras on this disc are somewhat lackluster, but the series is old enough that DVDs were not even being sold commercially, let alone on the minds of producers. There is a tribute to Richard Stone, the composer, and interviews with character designers, storyboard artists, and art directors from the series. Some interesting anecdotes are offered, such as the story behind the newsreel intro that accompanies many seemingly random episodes. However, the production values are so poor it looks like they handed a camera to the child of one of the producers, and let him have a go. Low quality film stock and poor audio quality hinder many anecdotes.
If you are buying The Animaniacs you are not buying it for the special features. You are buying it to relive your childhood, or to share with your own children, or to simply enjoy in a world where smart animation had its time and is now slowly disappearing. The Animaniacs proves that cartoons are not just kid stuff.
