“Well, its that time again”(Yakko) “Time to make fun of the disney channel?”(Dot) “Time to make the FOX censors cry?”(Wakko) “No, it’s time to learn today’s lesson, and to find out what it is we turn to the wheel of morality. Wheel of morality, turn, turn, turn, tell us the lesson that we should learn. And today’s morale is: ‘You can teach an old dog new tricks, but you can’t teach Madonna to act.’”(Yakko) “Whoa, the mind boggles”(Wakko)
So I recently found out that the Animaniacs movie, Wakko’s Wish, is on iTunes and I’m pretty sure I’ve watched it four times for the past week. And now I’m starting to realize how many lessons there are in it. So, here are some of the other lessons that could’ve been learned from the Wheel of Morality.
I have so many. It’s hard to pick just one. But let’s spin the Wheel of Morality! (and if you get that reference, I will give you a cookie) I honestly can’t stand overdone purple prose. Like, honey, if I can’t tell what your character is doing in your reply, you need to dial it back.
I went to school. I fucking love Shakespeare and 19th Century English lit. I get dense. But there are some replies I’ve gotten, dude. I… have no damn idea what’s going on. Is their character sitting? Standing? Did they do an interpretive dance? No clue. I just know their cerulean orbs are glistening in the twilit haze of their existential narration.
