the warner brothers (and the warner sister)

A reminder that the Animaniacs actual origin story is

that their creator was under pressure to make a bad cartoon funny and pulled an all-nighter alone

and that he in fact lost his actual sanity creating them…

and what he created was just them smashing the protagonist with wooden mallets.

Okay Animaniacs is like one of the most non serious, goofy, happy cartoons, but honestly the concept of the Warners is really sad.
Three siblings, no parents, basically imprisoned in a water tower for six decades, every one either hates them (and/or just tolerates them)for being too zany, or fangirls over them because they are cartoon stars, no in between. And they clearly want parents who love them. How many times have they excitedly jumped on someone cuz they thought that person wanted to be part of their family? For crying out loud they once were completely thrilled because they thought death himself wanted to adopt them. And yet they’re still some of the happiest, most playful kids ever.
These kids just deserve better than this


you can’t sit there and tell me that these two spent all that time on the same studio lot as those kids and didn’t end up babysitting them at some point

Summary of Yakko and Wakko’s relationship with Dot:

Dot: I’m so cute!
Yakko and Wakko: Oh my gosh you’re not that cute, calm down!

Dot: I’m so cute!
Some stranger: You’re not that cute!

there was this looney tunes movie in 2003 called looney tunes back in action and APPARENTLY in the beginning the water tower gets freaken Destroyed so i am very worried for what happened to the warner brothers and the warner sister after that

  • What she says: I'm fine.
  • What she means: Do each of the Animaniacs cartoons exist as cartoons in the Animaniacs world or do they exist as the reality of the world? We know the Warner Brothers (and sister Dot) interact with the other characters, but is this as cartoons or in their world? Are Pinky and the Brain pretending to try to take over the world in a cartoon or are they trying to take over the world that the Warners live in? We see that the Warners, Elmyra, and Buttons and Mindy have interacted in at least one scene in the Warners' world and they have interacted several times with Skippy and Slappy, so are the cartoons actually real or are they cartoons within cartoons? What about the times when they are not completely in character, such as the orchestra scene?

i think my favorite joke from any of the shorts of the warner brothers and the warner sister is when they’re in the game show and the guy goes “it says here you live in a tower! tell us about it” and yakko goes “……………………….we live in a tower ned”
