They are Animaniacs. They are zany to the max. So just sit back and relax and you'll laugh 'til you collapse cuz they're Animaniacs!

Animaniacs - Main Characters

  • Yakko, Wakko and Dot - The "Warner Brothers" (and their Warner Sister). Yakko is a smart aleck, Wakko has a bag filled with tricks, and Dot uses her cuteness to always get her way.
  • Dr. Otto Scratchansniff - The studio psychiatrist who is driven crazy by his fruitless attempts to calm the Warners down.
  • Thaddeus Plotz - The CEO of the Warner Bros. Studios cartoon enterprise.
  • Hello Nurse - Wacko and Yacko's love interest. The boys always shout "Hellooooo, Nurse!" and jump into her arms when they see her.
  • Ralph - The simple-minded Warners Studio security guard who attempts to contain Yakko, Wakko and Dot to the Warner Bros. watertower.
  • Pinky and the Brain - A dim-witted genetically engineered mouse and his evil genious companion. They were so loved on Animaniacs that they got their own spinoff!
  • Animaniacs - Fun Facts

  • The Animaniacs theme song won an Emmy Award for best song in the series' first season.
  • The Animaniacs writers didn't shy away from making fun of anyone, including their own fan club, which they referred to as the Please Please Please Get A Life Foundation in one episode.
  • Wakko's voice is modelled after former Beatle Ringo Starr's.
  • The set of Animaniacs is a mostly accurate representation of the Warner Bros. studio lot.
