Summary "Lisa Scoggin examines how the music functions in Animaniacs, from its basis in the sounds of Carl Stalling to its role in parody to its use in the educational segments. Through this, the author touches upon musical theatre, country music and nostalgia, Woodstock, censorship, classical music reception, limited animation, and characterization through music, as well as many other topics. Written with both the music scholar and layperson in mind, this book will appeal not only to those who enjoy the show, but also to those who are interested in parody, nostalgia, the study of pop culture, and music in animation in general."--Page [4] of cover.
