(Instrumental solo. The score, "Haunted Forest" from "The Wizard of Oz" plays at the 2:09 mark, then ends at the 2:15 mark, cutting over to the 2:35 mark flawlessly and ends at the 2:47 mark. During this time, the extended version of the intro shows Wizard Waldo's silent clips from various episodes. After Waldo's score ends, we cut back to the score of the "Animaniacs" theme song.)

(After the Warner Bros. logo, the screen fades from black. The text "ANIMANIACS" zooms in in rainbow letters. Then more text appears saying "An Animaniacs Special Presentation". The word "Special" flashes until the screen fades to black. Then we fade from black revealing a camera crew. The camera zooms in on the Warners' shadows, then the lights dim down revealing the Warners.)

Yakko and Wakko: Hi. We're the Warner Brothers.

Dot: And the Warner sister.

Yakko: And we'd like to invite you and all the family members of your household...

Dot: To gather around the TV set and join us now...

Yakko (Redubbed): For a very special "Animaniacs" sing along.

Dot: And what's so special about it?

Wakko: (Lifts the bottom of his shirt, revealing his belly) I'm not wearing any pants!

(Unlike the original version of the "Very Special Opening" segment, the screen doesn't fade to black at the end of the segment. Instead, an iris opens revealing the camera zooming into the WB logo of the water tower and the door opens revealing Yakko, Wakko, and Dot. And the four of them start to sing.)

Yakko, Wakko, Dot, and Background Singer (Redubbed): ♪Sing with the Animaniacs.♪

(Yakko, Wakko, and Dot jump out the door and bounce to the rhythm towards the screen.)

(Dot jumps into the shot, but Background Singer sings off-screen.)

Dot and Background Singer (Redubbed): ♪And the tempos are extreme!♪

[AHOOGA!]

(The Warners run away follow the swinging Background Singer out of the shot. As this happens, Two sets of sing along subtitles appear on-screen. One having normal sing along subtitles, the other with Dot's head bouncing on the words.)

Yakko, Wakko, and Dot (Redubbed): ♪The lyrics are relentless so we'll write them on the screen.♪

♪Just watch the bouncing Dot and drink plenty of caffeine.♪

♪Let's all break loose, there's no excuse, just give it all you've got!♪

(At this point, we have a newly animated sequence exclusive to the sing along VHS tapes, this intro can appear on the DVDs and Blu-Ray Discs as a bonus feature.)

Background Singer: ♪We're Animaniacs.♪

♪Sing along and join our pack!♪

♪Or dance until you're slim, you either sink or swim, in "Animaniacs"!♪

(We see clips of episodes where Background Singer either grooms Dot, or if Dot and Background Singer either dance, or hug, or hold hands, or even kiss.)

Background Singer (Voice-over): ♪My name is Background Singer, I treat Dot just like a queen.♪

♪Minerva Mink and Manfred, have marched onto the scene.♪

Wizard Waldo: ♪I worked my way to catch you three and this is my new scheme!♪

(More clips are shown during the instrumental)

Yakko and Wakko: Helloooo, nurse!

(A clip features the Warners screaming, followed by a clip with Mime getting crushed by a giant anvil, with no fall sound effect playing at all. A few clips later, the rest of the crew continue singing.)

All characters (Redubbed): ♪We're Animaniacs. We have pay-or-play contracts.♪

Yakko, Wakko, Dot, and Background Singer: ♪"Animaniacs"! Those are the facts!♪♪

(On the final note, the Warners lean on one side of the logo and the screen fades to black.)

(After the Warner Bros. logo, the screen fades from black as title card music from "De-Zanitized" plays. During the music, the clip shown from said episode has Yakko, Wakko, and Dot land and run up to Dr. Scratchansniff's window.)

Dot (from "De-Zanitized"): Did you miss us?

Yakko and Dot: ♪Or just jump on Wakko's back.♪

Yakko, Dot, and Background Singer: ♪And don't forget the snacks!♪

Yakko, Wakko, and Dot: ♪From Canada to Paraguay, and places in between.♪

Background Singer: ♪From India to Mozambique, you'll see just what we mean.♪

Yakko, Wakko, and Dot: ♪It's fun to visit countries, that you have never seen.♪

♪But if you drink the water there, you might turn slightly green.♪

All characters: ♪We're Animaniacs. With our napsacks on our backs.♪

♪We'll leave raisins in our tracks from the trail mix in our slacks.♪

♪We're Animan-y... totally insane-y...♪

Dot: ♪Let's not miss our plane-y...♪

Yakko, Wakko, Dot, and Background Singer: ♪"Animaniacs"! Bring your backpacks!♪♪

(An iris opens revealing a kid's computer in their bedroom. The camera zooms in on the monitor and Yakko, Wakko, and Dot pop out of the logo.)

Yakko, Wakko, and Dot: ♪It's time for It's time for "Animaniacs".♪

♪We hope your hard drive stays intact.♪

(The Warners jump out of the screen)

[ZOOM!]

♪If this program starts to crash, give your CPU a whack!♪

(Yakko slams the computer with his mallet, and we cut back to the logo)

♪We're Animaniacs.♪

(The Warners stick their heads out of a boot)

♪Boot up the Warner Brothers and the Warner Sister, Dot.♪

(Yakko, Wakko, and Dot pass a glass bottle down a line and Wakko whacks the boat, only for it to sink.)

♪The developers would like to buy a really snazzy yacht.♪

♪They put all kinds of games in here to tie your mind in knots.♪

♪And zany animations that will leave you seeing spots.♪

♪We're Animaniacs.♪

♪They transformed us to bitmaps.♪

♪If you move your mouse to click on things, you'll force us to react.♪

♪We're Animaniacs.♪

♪Look at Wakko as he tries to pull your processor apart.♪

(Wakko eats computer wires, and we cut to Yakko lighting a fuse.)

♪And Yakko's burning Random Access Memory with a spark.♪

[BOOM!]

♪Dot just grabbed your cursor, she wants you to restart.♪

(Yakko turns on the lights, revealing adult men all naked, in either underpants or adult briefs.)

♪We kidnaped all the programmers, they think that they're so smart.♪

♪We're Animaniacs.♪

(A man is shown laughing)

♪Play at work, and you'll get sacked.♪

[VIOLIN SLIDE DOWN]

(The man gets crushed by a giant chocolate cake with a rope on top. Then we cut to the Warners as poorly drawn sketches waving to a monkey.)

♪If the artwork is too slack, well, they licensed us to hacks.♪

(The monkey turns to the screen hooting and hollering and the camera zooms towards him, until the Warner are shown)

♪We're Animan-y... totally insane-y...♪

Wakko: ♪Monitor's in flame-y...♪

(Yakko, Wakko, Dot, and Background Singer are shown on the bouncing letters spelling "ANIMANIACS" on top of the words "Game Pack!")

Yakko, Wakko, Dot, and Background Singer: ♪"Animaniacs"! Those are the facts!♪♪

(On the final note, the iris closes in the middle, leaving us with a black screen.)

[To be decided]
