This idea got planted in a helloooooo sailor/hellooooooo nurse exchange on Twitter — couldn’t get the Animaniacs theme song out of my head all day (and it keeps popping up in the weeks since too, that thing’s catchy).  And while the characters probably “belong” on a different background color, I felt like painting cartoons last night so this is where we wound up.

The base is two coats of Wet ‘n Wild I Got A New Com-Pewter from their chrome lineup; I don’t know about pewter, but love the chartreuse sparkle this one gives off (and no problems with application or formula, so phew).  Once that dried I painted in Wakko on the pinky, Yakko on the ring, Hello Nurse (that’s her name!) on the middle, and Dot on the index finger.

Animaniacs characters

Animaniacs Dot

Animaniacs Wakko Yakko

And in case you suddenly have the theme song stuck in your brain, here ya go:

It’s time for Animaniacs
And we’re zany to the max
So just sit back and relax
You’ll laugh ’til you collapse
We’re animan-iacs

Come join the warner brothers
And the Warner sister, Dot
Just for fun we run around the Warner movie lot
They lock us in the tower
Whenever we get caught
But we break loose and then vamoose
and now you know the plot

We’re animaniacs
Dot is cute and Yakko yaks
Wakko packs away the snacks
While Bill Clinton plays the sax
We’re Animaniacs

Meet Pinky and the Brain who want to rule the universe
Good Feathers flock together, Slappy whacks ‘em with her purse
Buttons chases Mindy while Rita sings a verse
The writers flipped we have no script why bother to rehearse

We’re animaniacs
We have pay or play contracts
We’re zany to the max
There’s baloney in our slacks
We’re animany
Totally insaney
Here’s the show’s name-y

Those are the facts.

    Aw shucks, thanks ladies! I really wish one of the cartoon channels would start running this series again; wonder how many emails that would take…? And yessss Pooh nails! That’s actually been on my to-do for awhile, I’ve got to get that one done soon (so many great characters).

  8. So lovely!! Putting a character on nails. It is very artistic and gorgeous I really like it so much. Great combinations of colors really adds the beauty of the nails.

      Thank you! I really liked the base color more than I anticipated after purchasing it… and seriously still have that theme song popping in my head regularly now, it’s a little maddening!
