The Top 11 Naughiest Moments in Animaniacs
May 11th, 2008
Nostalgia Critic: Hello, I'm the Nostalgia Critic. I remember it so you don't have to.
Animaniacs theme song and show footage starts up
Nostalgia Critic: (voiceover) What can you say about Animaniacs? It was by far one of the greatest cartoon shows that was ever made for kids. The reason for that is a lot of the jokes were written just as much for adults as they were for kids. But maybe some of these jokes got a little too adult. There were a lot of hidden innuendos in the show that were so sneaky that even the Hollywood censors didn't catch them.
Nostalgia Critic: When we were children we missed most of them. But now that we're older, we can respect the kind of humor that many people would consider a little too risqué for a children's show. Which is why today, I'm gonna bring you the Top 11 scenes that made it past the Warner Bros. Censoring Board. Why Top 11? Because I like to go one step beyond. So, with that said, sit back and enjoy the Top 11 Naughtiest Animaniac moments.
