* TheThingThatWouldNotLeave: Played for laughs. Throw them bodily out the door, turn around, and ''there they are.'' Hilariously, they're on the ''receiving'' end of this upon occasion. Notably from the likes of [[OldWindbag Pip]] and [[ChronicPetKiller Elmyra]].

* JerkassHasAPoint: Yes, he is incredibly conceited and abrasive, but do you honestly the Warners deserved a ''tip'' from him after they ''ate the sandwich that he ordered right in front of him?'' They were lucky he didn't call the sandwich shop to complain!

to:

** The Warners' 65th anniversary special has two in-universe examples of big ones:


Added DiffLines:

* OlderThanTheyLook: Not that he looks young, but the Warners' 65th anniversary special reveals that he was already head of the studio when they were created, which means he must be in his mid 80s at the very least, though he seems no older than 70.
* PunnyName: His surname is Yiddish-American slang meaning "to explode" or "to collapse."


Added DiffLines:

* CharacterDevelopment: In early episodes he's a wide-eyed {{Genre Blind}} innocent, watching his aunt's antics in amazement, [[InelegantBlubbering bawling inconsolably]] over the death of [[Disney/{{Bambi}} Bumbie's mom]], and generally being Slappy's cute little {{Foil}}. As the series goes on, he inherits much more of his aunt's {{Genre Savvy}} and {{Deadpan Snarker}} tendencies and frequently serves as her {{Hypercompetent Sidekick}}. His [[VocalEvolution gradually deepening voice]] (see below) highlights the shift.

* AmbiguouslyJewish: He's based on Creator/GrouchoMarx and his first name is based on the Yiddish name "Yakov".

to:

* AmbiguouslyJewish: He's based on Creator/GrouchoMarx and his first name is based on the Yiddish name "Yakov". He and his siblings enthusiastically celebrate Christmas, though.



* YoungerThanTheyLook: He's only 7 according to the "HelloNurse" song, but writers have explained that he only said it in order to rhyme with "heaven". WordOfGod [[note]]in this case, from Tom Ruegger[[/note]] is that the Warners' ages aren't specified beyond "not old enough to date". 14, 11, and 9 respectively.

* SternTeacher: While rather abrasive, she ultimately wants to educate the Warners, doesn't deliberately make things hard for them, and would probably be less sour if her students didn't always torment her with their usual antics.

to:

* SternTeacher: While rather abrasive, she ultimately Mr. Plotz hired her because she's a stern, abrasive disciplinarian whom he thinks will keep the Warners in line. Still, she's a fairly reasonable example, who genuinely wants to educate the Warners, doesn't deliberately make things hard for them, and would probably be less sour if her students didn't always torment her with their usual antics.

* AdvertisedExtra: He rarely appeared at all, only only five times in fact, only having a prominent role in two segments (only speaking in one of those and in the other he was basically a normal animal) and his other speaking role was a brief appearance in Gunga Dot, he had a silent appearance in the Macarena music video parody, and a blink you'll miss it cameo in another, but despite all this he was featured in both of the big group shots in the opening theme, making him seem like he'd be a recurring character but in reality he was just a minor character who barely ever showed up. He eventually came BackForTheFinale in the Animaniacs' film,''Film/WakkosWish'' (literally), appearing in the very last scene that mirrored the show's intro, and in another with the show's various characters, but with no speaking role.
