I'm Mad is a theatrical short spun off from Animaniacs. It was originally shown in front of Thumbelina and later aired as part of the show's 69th episode. The music and lyrics were written by Randy Rogel. It is also the tenth track on the show's first soundtrack album.


In the water tower Yakko, Wakko and Dot are asleep in their bunk beds. Dr. Scratchansniff runs in and wakes up the three Warner siblings because they are running late and going on a day trip, cajoling them to get something to eat before they go. An argument starts between Yakko and Dot after Yakko hits the ladder while Dot is coming down. Meanwhile, Wakko complains about breakfast, saying he wants pancakes or waffles instead of the scrambled eggs he's served, and then complains about his clothes. In the bathroom Dot accuses Yakko of using her toothbrush, creating another argument that is only broken up by Scratchansniff to pull them out so they can go.

Down at the parking lot the Doctor has great trouble getting the siblings into the car and when he finally gets them inside, they lock him out. On the road Dot, states "I'm mad, I'm mad, I'm really, really, really mad" because Yakko nudged her with his elbow. Yakko claims to be innocent and they start to argue once again while Scratchansniff begs them to be quiet because he is trying to drive the car. However, that doesn't work so Scratchansniff forbids them both to say another word. Wakko meanwhile complains himself by wondering "Are we there yet? I'm tired, I'm hungry. How far? My nose is snotty, need to move my body. Gotta use the potty, better stop the car."

Yakko and Dot have once again started fighting. When asked to stop they both blame each other for starting it, making Scratchansniff lose his temper and yelling at them both to be quiet. With Yakko and Dot fighting in the backseat Scratchansniff complains that every time they take a trip it's "always just the same". They all fight each other and when they finally arrive everyone's a wreck.

They finally arrive at their destination, which is a circus. Scratchansniff wonders if they aren't happy and the Warner siblings quickly state that indeed they are. They all run into the amusement park and come out again when the sun is setting. Dot states that "I'm glad, I'm glad. What a really great time we had". Both Yakko and Dot seem to be getting along well again and they treat each other nicely. They all get into the car again they and drive of into the sunset. All of a sudden Dot breaks the silence, telling Yakko that he hit her. He claims to be innocent and the whole fight starts all over again.


Dr. Scratchansniff: Wake up! It's late!
It's twenty minutes after eight!
Everyone get up; it's time to go!
Up and at 'em now!
Come on; shake a leg!
Have some juice and scrambled egg.
On the floor and out the door
Let's get on our way.
Dot: Hey, watch out!
Yakko: What's the matter?
Dot: You almost knocked me off the ladder!
Yakko: No, I didn't!
Dot: Yes you did; I almost fell!
Yakko: Aww, Don't exaggerate.
Dot: I'm not.
Yakko: Yeah, right.
Dot: Are you trying to pick a fight?
Yakko: Will you get out of my face?!
Dot: Well, you're always in my space!
Dr. Sratchansniff: Hey, get off each other's case
Because we're trying to get along.
Wakko: I want pancakes
Or a waffle.
This tastes awful.
Is that all we've got?
Can't find my clothes
And I need to blow my nose
And my socks are full of holes
And my shoelace has a knot.
Dot: That's my toothbrush!
Yakko: No, it's not!
Dot: Well, it's sitting in my slot!
Yakko: No it isn't; this is mine and that one's yours.
Dot: Well, you're standing in my way!
Yakko: Yeah, that's tough!
Dr. Scratchansniff: Alright, now that's enough!
Everybody get your stuff
Because we're going out the door!
Every time we get into ze car,
It's so much work!
It takes us twenty minutes
While you're driving me berserk
With your playing und your jumping
Und your running all about!
When I finally get you inside
You always lock me out!
Dot: I'm mad, I'm mad!
I'm really, really, really mad!
You poked me with your elbow in my side!
Yakko: No, I didn't!
Dot: Yes, you did!
Yakko: Nuh-uh!
Dot: You did!
And I'm just a little kid.
You're lying; don't deny it!
Yakko: Oh, I'm gonna hit you!
Dot: Yeah, just try it!
Dr. Scratchansniff: Will both of you be quiet
'Cause we're driving in a car!
Dot: Oww, You hit me!
Yakko: Well, she bit me!
Dot: He said he's gonna get me!
Yakko: No, I didn't!
Dot: Yes, you did!
Dr. Scratchansniff: Alright that's it; now I forbid
Either one of you to say another word!
Wakko: Are we there yet?
I'm tired.
I'm hungry.
How far?
My nose is snotty,
Need to move my body,
Gotta use the potty,
Better stop the car.
Dot: Stop it!
Yakko: No, you stop it!
Dr. Scratchansniff: Why can't you both just drop it?
Dot: Well, he started it!
Yakko: Oh, yeah, I'm really sure, uh-huh!
Dot: Na-ah!
Yakko: Uh-uh!
Dot: It's your fault!
Yakko: No, it's not.
Your leg is in my spot!
Dr. Scratchansniff: Yakko, you be quiet!
Und that goes for you too, Dot!
Every time we take a trip,
It's always just the same
With the fighting und the biting
Und the calling all those names,
Then there's pushing und there's shoving
Und there's scratching on the neck
When we finally get to where we're going
Everyone's a wreck!
The Warners: Yak yak yak yak yak yak yak yak yak yak yak yak yak!
Dot: I'm mad, I'm mad! (Wakko: Are we there yet?)
I'm really, really, really mad! (Wakko: I'm tired)
You poked me with your elbow in my side! (Wakko: I'm hungry)
Yakko: No I didn't! (Wakko: How far?)
Dot: Yes, you did! You did! (Wakko: My nose is snotty,)
And I'm just a little kid. (Wakko: Need to move my body,)
Dr. Scratchansniff: Will both of you be quiet (Wakko: Gotta use the potty,)
'Cause we're driving in a car! (Wakko: Better stop the car.)
Dr. Scratchansniff: We're here, we're here!
Doesn't anybody want to give a cheer?
Yakko: You mean this is where we're all gonna spend the day?
Dot: At the circus?!
Wakko: Hey, guys, look! They got rides!
Dr. Scratchansniff: Now you're satisfied?
Alright, everyone inside,
And let's have some fun, okay?
The Warners: (cheering)
Dot: I'm glad, I'm glad!
What a really great time we had!
Did you see those lions and those tigers?
Weren't they neat?
Dr. Scratchansniff: Are you happy now?
Dot: We are; thanks a lot!
I'm sorry that we fought.
From now on I'll get along
Yakko: That's alright, Dot; I was wrong.
Dr. Scratchansniff: Ah that's nice, now come along,
Let's all get in the car.
Dot: You can take the seat you like,
You're always so gallant.
Yakko: Ah, thank you, Dot, but ladies first,
You take the seat you want.
Dr. Scratchansniff: Everybody's happy now,
We've had a real good day.
Und now it's time to go back home
So let's be on our way!
Dot: You hit me!
Yakko: No, I didn't!
Dot: Yes, you did. Stop it!
Yakko: No, you stop it!
Dot: Move your leg!
Yakko: No, you move your leg!
Dot: You started it!
Yakko: No, I didn't, you did!
Dot: No, I didn't, you did!
Yakko: Started what?!
Dot: You always start it!
Yakko: Don't you cross that line!
Dot: You're not the boss of me!
Yakko: This is where the line is, right here!
Dot: Oh yeah? Since when? Get out of my face! I'm the boss here!
Yakko: Dr Scratchansniff, she started it!



After Thumbelina's theatrical run, the only way to see the theatrical cut of this short was through brief glimpses on the 1994 VHS release "Animaniacs Sing-Along: Yakko's World". But because the short was part of a re-dubbed framing device where Mary Hartless presented the short as a film premiere (using footage that was originally from the episode Taming of the Screwy), only half of the four title cards are shown in their entirety, with scenes of the Warners in a projection booth and a re-dubbed scene from the episode Bumbie's Mom with Slappy telling her nephew Skippy about how hard Steven Spielberg worked on the short, preventing the viewer from seeing them.
