Steven Spielberg presents Animaniacs is an American animated series, distributed by Warner Bros. and produced by Amblin Entertainment. The cartoon was the second animated series produced by the collaboration of Steven Spielberg and Warner Bros. Animation during the animation renaissance of the late 1980s and early 1990s. The studio's first series, Tiny Toon Adventures, was a success among younger viewers, and attracted a sizable number of adult viewers. The comedy of Animaniacs was a broad mix of old-fashioned wit, slapstick, pop culture references, cartoon violence, and wackiness. The show also featured a number of educational segments that covered subjects such as history, mathematics, geography, science, and social studies. Animaniacs first aired on Fox Kids from 1993 until 1995 and later appeared on The WB from 1995 to 2000 as part of its Kids' WB! programming block. The series ran for a total of 99 episodes and one direct-to-VHS film, titled Wakko's Wish.
