I love this moment between the siblings!  So cute how Dot helps wakko correct his Programme (booklet) and she turns it for him from upside to proper correct position. meanwhile while this happens Yakko takes notice and looks on to see Dot helping wakko and by the end you can see how proud he is of both his siblings. As his expression shows he really cares about them!  The last screenshot he looks way to happy then before :D

I’ve always had a lot of respect for you, kid.”

A little idea I’ve had for a while. After the last Animaniacs production wrapped up, the Warner siblings get removed from the lot once the eldest sibling becomes an adult. Yakko meets up with Bugs, a colleague he’d known for years, while waiting for Wakko and Dot to get dropped off from school. Real-life issues and whatnot.

Sorry for some panels looking so much better than others. I never intended to get the whole thing nice and polished.

Animaniacs Radio Interview

Here’s something I’ve dug out of the archives for the next generation of Animaniacs fans. It’s an old radio interview of Rob Paulsen and Jess Harnell as Yakko (later Pinky) and Wakko promoting Animaniacs on the  Kids’ WB network back in…okay, my memory’s faulty, I’m not sure exactly when. I want to say, maybe about 1994, ‘95? In true Animaniacs fashion, they make topical references and get away with some slightly risque humor. :)

But before you listen, a couple of notes:

The audio quality, while good for its time, is not exactly crystal clear. It’s also going to sound a little pieced together, some places more obviously than others. That’s because when I originally downloaded this, it came in fifteen .wav files (a sound file format that was common in the early '90’s but got largely phased out with the introduction of .mp3 format). Each part was less than a minute in length. That sounds ridiculous today, but bear in mind that most home computers back then still used dial-up 56K modems to connect to the internet. Short sound bites were about all they could handle in a reasonable amount of time.

So what I’ve done - probably pretty poorly - is string together each piece to make one big mp3 for your convenience. I’m not sure if the entire interview is represented here, either - some parts may have been edited or just accidentally left out by whoever initially recorded this.

Still, it’s something that maybe most Animaniacs fans, especially newer ones, haven’t heard before, and I wanted to share. So enjoy!

Animaniacs: Wakko’s Wish favorite scene part 3 - The Story of Dot’s Birth 

I still stand by the fact that this is one of the most touching scenes of the entire movie besides near the end where he tells it again when he thinks that Dot is dying in his arms. 

I love how much of a loving brother he is shown being right here, even though it will never happen because the series is over, I still think that Yakko would make an excellent father if he had his own kids in the future. 

So I like to think that Dot & Wakko are his kids from time to time because of the way he acts.
