Part of the fun of '90s cartoon Animaniacs was the music. Each episode featured an original score. Some of them were just for fun, but many taught lessons. Here, six great—and educational—tunes from the show.

The Presidents

Sung to the tune of "The William Tell Overture," this song names all the presidents up to Bill Clinton, who was in office at the time of production.

Nations of the World

Name every country on the globe while singing to the tune of the "Mexican Hat Dance."

Wakko's America

To this day, I still hum this song—to the tune of "Turkey in the Straw"—when I need to recall one of the state capitals.

Yakko's Universe

Learn about your place in the world with this song about the universe.

The Senses

Education on the five senses.

Multiplication Song

Double-digit multiplication gets a little easier with this song.
