Note : The direct-to-video film was done with digital ink and paint.
Several VHS videos were released in the United States in the United Kingdom and Australia. The British and Australian VHS tapes were put in "volumes", which were generally jumbled at random and are in no particular order with the series. The U.S. videotapes, however, (with the exception of Animaniacs Stew) feature episodes that had focused on one general subject. Each video featured four to five skits each and was accompanied by a handful of skit intros, with a running time of about 45 minutes.
