Animaniacs Wiki


The main segment of the original Animaniacs and its reboot; Yakko, Wakko, and Dot (aka The WB Kids or the Warners) focuses on the exploits of the Warner brothers (and the Warner sister) as they run amok throughout their home of Warner Bros. Studios, where they cause mischief and troubles for studio management, and the many productions being filmed there.

Occasionally, they may bring their mayhem outside the lot and around the world. Whenever they can, they'll provide commentary on some of the many industry trends, people, politics and franchises currently dominating the pop-culture landscape.

Central Characters

History of the Warner Brothers (And Warner Sister!)

In a last minute effort to get some laughs out of an in-production Buddy cartoon, a Termite Terrace artist named Lon Borax cranked out the Warners on the night of February 30, 1929. After a failed cartoon contract that resulted in the Warners having complete freedom resulting in chaos on the Warner Bros. movie lot, security locked them inside their water tower and the company disavowed any knowledge of their existence to the public until their escape 60 years later. Since then, despite ongoing efforts by management and studio psychiatrist Dr. Scratchansniff to "dezanitize" them, the Warners have continued to be unstoppable, going wherever and whenever they pleased, even after a 22-year hiatus.

Trivia

  • Nearly every animation studio that has worked on a production in the Animaniacs franchise has animated at least one Yakko, Wakko and Dot-related cartoon (with the exception of Rough Draft Studios, Inc., who, as of November 2021, have only worked on the Pinky and the Brain spin-offs).
  • Episodes 38, 54, 58, 63, 67, 68, 83, 90, and 98 do not include Yakko, Wakko, and Dot segments.
    • Episode 63 is the only one in the series in which Yakko, Wakko, and Dot don't appear at all outside the opening sequence.
  • Tom Ruegger's sons served as inspirations for the Warners.
