Last night Mrs. O and I went to see "Animaniacs Live": the Colorado Symphony Orchestra played music from the 1990s animated series ANIMANIACS, accompanied in person by writer and lyricist Randy Rogel (three Emmy awards), composers Julie and Steve Bernstein (nine Emmy awards), and the original voice actors Rob Paulson (Yakko, Pinkey, and Dr. Scratchnsniff), Jess Harnell (Wakko), and Tress MacNeill (Dot, and a ton of voices on the Simpsons). We can't say we were fans of the show (although I remember it). But seldom have I seen artists with such obvious affection and enthusiasm for their material. It was fun! (And Rogel is a genius.)
