Wakko's signature.

Wakko Warner is one of the three main protagonists of the TV series Animaniacs. He is the middle child of the Warner siblings, and the goofball of the three. He wears a red baseball cap along with a blue turtleneck. In the revival he has grown a small tuft of hair on the top of his head (a smaller version of his hair tuft was briefly seen in the original show during The Senses Song.) As a symbol of his wackiness, his tongue occasionally hangs out of his mouth.


Wakko is sweet-natured and canny. Wakko is a trickster like his siblings but he is easily the most polite out of the Warners. Despite his good-natured, Wakko has a voracious appetite and is the most physical of the siblings. He has a phobic fear of clowns, Wakko speaks with a British/Scouse/Liverpudlian accent, he has a silent nature, Wakko is flexible and takes objects out of his magic pocket when the situation calls for it. He is the least intelligent of the three. Wakko is a fan of the late Don Knotts, the instrument he plays most often is the drums. In Wakko's Wish, it's revealed that Wakko is optimistic, as he constantly tells his siblings and the inhabitants of Acme Falls to "Never give up hope", and it's his hope that ultimately saved Warnerstock from King Salazar's tyranny, as it's Wakko's hope that allowed him to find the Wishing Star, starting the chain of events that ends with the Warners (literally) booting Salazar out of the castle which is revealed it rightfully belongs to the Warners.


  • Wakko Warner's quieter nature, gaggy bag and gookie are derived from Harpo Marx of the Marx Brothers.
  • Wakko's accent is based on people from the city of Liverpool, UK. People from this city are often known as "scousers". His accent is modeled on The Beatles, but most notably Ringo Starr.
  • Wakko has been shown to be similar to Yakko when his hat is taken off (only briefly in a few episodes like with No Pain, No Painting, the Senses song, The Warners and The Beanstalk, Chalkboard Bungle, Yakko Warner's World Of Baldness and in Wakko's Wish), the only difference being his face is more circular and he has a messy tuft of hair as well.
  • Wakko was originally going to be two separate characters, Wakky and Smakky.
  • Wakko's burps are actually done by Maurice LaMarche (voice of The Brain & Squit).
  • In Clown And Out, Wakko is coulrophobic (or afraid of clowns), which is shared with Warner Bros. CEO Thaddeus Plotz.
  • In the song Hello Nurse, he's said to be 7. In an interview with Tom Ruegger, however, he states that he's actually 11-years-old. This was to keep the rhyme in the song, as "eleven" has too many syllables to rhyme with "heaven".
  • Wakko is the same height as Buster Bunny.
  • In the 2020 revival, Wakko and his siblings seem to have left the tower for currently unknown reasons after the events of The Scoring Session.
