We were thrilled to speak with Animaniacs star Rob Paulsen, voice of Yakko Warner as well as Dr. Otto Scratchansniff and Pinky.

“It’s a miraculous thing to have a show that can appeal to three generations,” Paulsen remarked. “There will be people at this show that will be ten years old, and well into their seventies too. And it doesn’t surprise me!”
Season two of the newly rebooted Animaniacs is now streaming on Hulu as it continues to pull in new fans. Just as iconic as ever, Paulsen feels that the show’s music helps the series stand the test of time.
“The music is so important to the show because it made itself that way,” he reflected. “The first song I ever recorded for the show was Yakko’s World. Which made the bar already pretty high…And when that’s the case, we decided that music was going to be an integral part of the show. We lived up to the hype and delivered more songs.”
At their live performance, fans can look forward to hearing songs from the show that will surely unlock some childhood memories. From the theme song to Yakko’s World, Wakko’s America and more, every fan will leave the Fitzgerald with a big smile on their face.
“You can expect two solid hours of laughter, exhausted laughter,” Paulsen exclaimed. “The kind when you laugh from your soul. Maybe even a few tears because it will remind you of how quickly time flies.”
