When the “Animaniacs” hit the afters-chool television line up in the 1993, it was described as the cartoon for the adult in every child – and the child in every adult. The series featured music, satirical social commentary and pop culture references. Revived on Hulu in 2020, it is now in its third season. 

The show’s original Emmy-winning composer and lyricist, Randy Rogel and voice talent Rob Paulsen joined us via Zoom to talk about their upcoming performance at the Center for the Arts on Sunday, May 21. 

Listen above for highlights from the silly, high energy interview.
