Yakko's World is a song created for the animated series Animaniacs. In the song, Yakko names all the countries of the world to the tune of the "Mexican Hat Dance." Some of the names of the countries are a bit out of date (it was written in 1993), and not all of the "countries" are fully independent. Nonetheless, it's a wonderful song for memorizing the countries of the world!
