The Pitch Meeting for Animaniacs – The Toast – The Toast
EXEC #1: How will kids feel when they watch this show?
THE ANIMATOR: Disconcerted. Unmoored. Hyper-stimulated. Amused to the point of terror.
EXEC #2: Oh good. Don’t want my nine-year-old daughter to feel too…moored.
THE ANIMATOR: Nine-year-old daughter? Her loyalties will lie with Dot, as they must in a tooniverse starved for female heroes, though her personality will be closest to Yakko’s and in her heart of hearts she’ll cherish Wakko. She won’t want to admit it, as everybody loves a Wakko and a Wakko she will never be.
[Trevor gets the sense that he will never be moored again]
