Theme song inspiration?[edit]

The theme song of the show seems very similar to "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes" and/or "There is a Tavern in the Town". I noticed comments about this while searching for the origins of the children's song. Has this been noted in any sources?

Rewording the lead paragraph[edit]

The first two sentences reads: "Animaniacs is an American animated television series, produced by Warner Bros. Animation and Amblin Television. Animaniacs is 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."
Repeating the first two sentences with "Animaniacs" is redundant. It is also redundant to repeat "Warner Bros. Animation" in the first two sentences, and I don't feel the first two sentences meets Wiki's standards. I'm bringing it up on the talk page since this is a featured article.
I'm considering rewording them to: "Animaniacs is an American animated television series presented by Steven Spielberg and produced under his Amblin Television label in collaboration with Warner Bros. Animation. It is the second animated series created by Tom Ruegger, which developed during the animation renaissance of the late 1980s and early 1990s."
I want to get approval from other editors before rewording the lead. Any thoughts? ATC . Talk 00:20, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
If not one is objected to these purposed changes, I'll be updating the lead section. ATC . Talk 15:24, 8 March 2016 (UTC)
I agree with the purposes of your changes, as the text should be very polished. I would, though, introduce the first sentence with Steven Spielberg Presents Animaniacs is..., as that is the show's actual title. (The article's title should remain Animaniacs per Wikipedia guidelines). Also, I would remove the word "which" in the second sentence. The rest of the intro needs to be punched up as well. I'll get on it. Thanks for your input! Gak Blimby (talk) 20:46, 26 March 2016 (UTC)
