  • Season 1 Episode 1: De-Zanitized/The Monkey S...

  • Porky Pig has a cameo in this episode.

  • If you look near the animator's drawing board, you can see a drawing of Hamton Pig's head of Tiny Toon Adventures fame.

  • Ralph can be seen greeting the stars in the beginning of this episode. Since this is supposed to take place a while ago there is a mistake because Ralph does not look old enough to have been around.

  • In this segment, Hello Nurse is in an animation room and Ralph is in the parking lot. This, however, is a mistake because it is supposed to take place in the 30's or 40's and Hello Nurse and Ralph do not look that old.

    Actually, it can be assumed that this is a mock documentary - filmed recently on black and white film - that was made just for the purpose of introducing the Warner Siblings/Animaniacs.

  • Season 1 Episode 2: Theme Song #1

  • People seen in the xylophone sequence of the theme song (from left to right): Ludwig Von Beethoven, Count Dracula, Mr. Plotz, Dr. Scratchansniff, Albert Einstein, Ralph

  • Season 1 Episode 2: Yakko's World/Cookies for...

  • Yakko omits Eritrea from the African nations, as well as several Asia-Pacific countries such as Western Samoa, Nauru, etc.

  • Season 1 Episode 2: Theme Song #1

  • For the reruns that run on Nickelodeon, an additional "theme song tag line" (as previously specified, usually different for every episode during their original airing) was conceived and recorded exclusively for these reruns ... they included Tress MacNeille as Dot singing: "Nickelaney!"

  • There are different verses in some episodes of the theme song. The original line is "While Bill Clinton plays the sax." In episodes 66-69 the following line was used: "We've got wisecracks by the stacks." From episode 70 onward the following line was used: "We pay tons of income tax." In addtion to this change the line "Meet Pinky and the Brain who want to rule the universe" was changed to "Meet Ralph and Dr Scratchansniff; say hi to Hello Nurse." for episodes 75 and 84

  • At the end of the theme song, one of the Warners say something that rhymes with the last line "We're Animanie, Totally insaney". There is usually a different line for every episode. These are the all lines that have been in the show:

    Dot: Here's the show's namey...
    Yakko, Wakko, and Dot: Pinky and The Brainy...
    Dot: Come back, Shaney...
    Dot: The rain in Spainy...

  • Season 1 Episode 3: H.M.S. Yakko/Slappy Goes ...

  • Captain Mel can be seen as a boss in the Aquatic Stage in the Animaniacs video game on the SNES.

  • Season 1 Episode 4: Hooked on a Ceiling/Goodf...

  • The song "Promenade" from Mussorgsky's Pictures At An Exhibition, is often heard through the episode.

  • The turtle who yells "Hey, watch it, dude!" speaks with a voice like Michaelangelo's, but was wearing the purple mask, which would make him Donatello.

  • For some reason, Michaelangelo is wearing a Roman toga, even though this takes place in Renaissance Italy.

  • Season 1 Episode 5: Taming Of The Screwy

  • Yakko is apparently able to speak Japanese.

  • When the Warners are hiding in the music pit, they alternate playing "Turkey In The Straw" and Mozart's "A Little Night Music".

  • Season 1 Episode 5: Nighty-Night Toon

  • First voiced appearance of Brain, voiced by Maurice LaMarche. Maurice LaMarche would eventually voice the leader of the Brain Planet on the show "Futurama".

  • Season 1 Episode 6: End Credits - Standard

  • During the water tower end tag, when the copyright fades in there is no IATSE union bug next to the copyright in the U.S. versions unlike the previous WB animated shows Tiny Toon Adventures, Batman: The Animated Series and Taz-Mania. However, in some or perhaps all the foreign language versions in other countries, the IATSE bug is intact right next to the copyright.

  • A recurring joke in the end credits of "Animaniacs" found Kathryn Page, Assistant-to-Producer, being assigned a new, offbeat credit with every full episode.
