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.

    I am actually a shipper myself. In fact, I didn't really believe in that many shippings except three. But I honestly think this is a nice pairing for whatever reason. Maybe it's the fact that this time Serena ACTUALLY has canonical crush on Ash? I usually base my beliefs on true facts. And they're in a region based on France. It is a rather romantic atmosphere, which I guess is why I get challenged by so many honeymooners in the Pokemon Y game... Anyway, why don't you post what you think? Are they a nice pairing, or do you think other shippings are better? I understand, because Pokeshipping is a worthy opponent.

    Brave all the way. The story is rather original, and Merida is one if the very few Disney princesses that don't need a prince to save her, or marry her or any of that junk.
