Cool Stuff: It’s Time For Animaniacs, And Their Zany New Vinyl Soundtracks

The “Animaniacs” music is so good we’ve even ranked some of the best tunes from the original run, but both eras of the show are chock-full of all-time greats.

The “Steven Spielberg Presents Animaniacs (Soundtrack from the Original Series)” comes on vintage black wax, featuring album art by Dan Haskett, Tony Craig, and Roman Laney. Side A features the songs like the show’s opening theme and these favorites: 

  • “Yakko’s Universe”
  • “Schnitzelbank”
  • “What Are We?” 
  • “Yes, Brothers Warner We” 
  • “Yakko’s World” 
  • “Wakko’s America”
  • “Video Revue”
  • “I Am the Model of a Cartoon In…”

Meanwhile, on Side B, here’s the roster:

  • I’m Mad
  • The Planets
  • The Etiquette Song
  • I’m Cute, The Senses
  • Be Careful What You Eat
  • Let the Anvils Ring
  • Animaniacs – End Title

The soundtrack from the 2020-2023 series is on translucent black wax with art by Gabe Swarr, Craig, and Laney. As this is a bigger release, this is available as a 2xLP. I’ll avoid providing the tracklist here since it’s so huge (but it’s all available on iam8bit’s website), but rest assured the new standouts like “Reboot It,” “Yakko’s Big Idea,” “Flora Dora,” “Warner’s Ark,” and “D.I. Why” are all there. 

If you’ve not yet tapped into the new “Animaniacs,” you’re seriously missing out. The music still has educational funnies like “A Brief History of History,” but some of the newer songs gleefully skewer the current trends of the 2020s. It’s all great, and certainly something worth adding to your record collection.

As a wise little sister once said, “We like you. We have no taste, but we like you.” Pre-order the albums (due to ship out during Q3) from iam8bit here.
