The main segment of Animaniacs, Yakko, Wakko, and Dot (aka The WB Kids) focuses on the exploits of the Warner siblings as they run amok throughout their home of Warner Bros. Pictures, where they cause mischief and troubles for studio management, and the many productions being filmed there. Whenever they can, they'll provide commentary on some of the many industry trends, people, and franchises currently dominating the pop-culture landscape.

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 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 trapped 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.
