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.

    "Call me "Dottie", and you die!" - Dot.

It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth. You mean violence wise? Not just that, but the show tells the stories of the characters finding themselves. Take Asami for example. A lot of people have a late relative and another relative involved in some kind of trouble. She had her relationships AND family business to take care of, which relates to some of today's youth who feel like they have the whole world on their shoulders. They're starting to have to take responsibility for things they can hardly manage, and seeing the triumph of a character like Asami is truly inspiring. Her mother's dead, her father's in prison, her boyfriend was stolen from her, and her business nearly failed. But she did not give up, which sends a positive message to today's generation of teens. Mako was not stolen from Asami he just chose Korra and everyone knows that thats what people wanted. As messed up as that sounds its the truth.
