The WB Television Network (commonly shortened to The WB, standing for Warner Bros.) was an American television network that ran from January 11, 1995 to September 17, 2006. It was a joint-venture between the Warner Bros. Entertainment division of Time Warner and Tribune Broadcasting. The channel's mascot was Looney Tunes star Michigan J. Frog. In addition; the channel was notably the network home of the Animaniacs franchise from 1995-2000, predominantly through its' youth-oriented television block Kids' WB!.

Trivia

  • In its first season, Pinky and the Brain aired Sundays on the main WB Network in primetime (7 PM). It was executive Jamie Kellner's decision to go all-in with the show.[1] Later on in the show's run, "A Pinky and the Brain Halloween" received a special primetime premiere due to being a holiday special.
  • The Animaniacs crew was notoriously unfound of this network and Kids WB; mostly due to network executives meddling with their creative process, poor scheduling of their shows, and the smaller audience it had compared to Fox Kids (writer Peter Hastings in particular described the network as "a little weak"[2]). As such, the crew made fun of the channel in each of the cartoon series (most notably in the Pinky and the Brain episode "You'll Never Eat Food Pellets In This Town Again").
  • The network was succeeded by The CW, a joint-venture between Warner Bros. and CBS Entertainment Group in 2006.
    • The Kids WB! block itself outlasted the main WB Network by about 1 year and 8 months on The CW (barring any off-network continuations of the brand name).
