Lock the Warner water tower and guard the laboratory because the Animaniacs and Pinky and the Brain are escaping to DVD on July 25, 2006 from Warner Home Video. For the first time, fans can own Animaniacs Volume 1 including 25 episodes featuring the crazy Yakko, Wakko, Dot and crew. Fans can also add to their classic animation DVD collection the 22 episodes from the Emmy nominated series Pinky and the Brain as they attempt to take over the world in Pinky And The Brain Volume 1. Both DVDs are priced to own for $44.98 each and have an order date of June 20, 2006.

Follow the adventures or misadventures of the Warner Brothers, Yakko and Wacko, and the Warner Sister, Dot, in Animaniacs Volume 1. Executive produced by Steven Spielberg, the ensemble cast of off-the-wall Warner Bros. characters, appear in a wide variety of roles as they continuously escape the water tower and run amuck all over the Warner Lot. Animaniacs Volume 1 is a 5 disc collectors set filled with over 12 hours of zany adventures along with DVD bonus materials including Animaniacs Live! featuring comic Maurice LaMarche hosting an in studio style interview via satellite big screen TV with Animaniac friends as they comment on the historical show.

The witty, slapstick humor with pop culture parodies and cartoon wackiness is a must own for all collectors of classic animation. Animaniacs first aired on Fox where it ran successfully for 2 years. The show then appeared on The WB as part of the "Kids WB" afternoon block.

"We are very excited to bring these two one-of-a-kind animation shows to DVD," said Dorinda Marticorena, WHV Vice President WHV Vice President, Kids and Sports Marketing. "Fans of both shows have been eagerly asking about their availability on DVD and even created a petition gathering over 9,000 signatures. We are happy to make these fantastic boxed DVD sets available to their core fans as well as a new generation of animation viewers."

Animaniacs Volume 1 special features include:
* ANIMANIACS LIVE! - Comic Maurice LaMarche hosts an in studio style interview via satellite big screen TV with Animaniac friends as they comment on the historical show.
