Animaniacs: Lights, Camera, Action! is an action game for the Nintendo DS and Game Boy Advance. It was developed by Warthog and Ignition Entertainment. The game is based on the television series Animaniacs. The game also marks the final appearance of the characters as the TV series ended seven years earlier.


The Animaniacs somehow caused great financial damages to the studio, much to the annoyance of the studio's president. But instead of firing them, the president assigns the Animaniacs to make three films where he'll use the revenue to fix the studio's financial problems.


The game takes place in an isometric world. Characters from the Animaniacs cartoon series occur in the game, but the story and the stages are completely new.

The director is present throughout each stage, and tells you what to do next in order to complete the movie. The basic gameplay consists of running though the stage, trying to avoid enemies, finding keys to unlock doors and figure out how to proceed by for example solving puzzles. At the end of most stages a boss can be found that has to be beaten.

You can change character by finding a "stage door" and there play a game of polka dottie.

It is not possible to die in the game. Instead you have a limited amount of time to finish each stage. Time is symbolized by film rolls. If you touch an enemy the director yells "cut" and you have to start over from place where you last spoke to the director, thus losing valuable film (i.e. time).
