The network is remembered differently depending on how old you are. If you were a kid in the mid-'90s, you may fondly remember The WB as the host network for ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' after it was acquired from Fox, along with other Creator/StevenSpielberg-helmed {{Saturday morning cartoon}}s such as ''WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}}'' and the ''Animaniacs'' spin-off ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain''. If you were a kid in the late '90s and early 2000s, you remember it for pretty much [[AnimationAgeGhetto selling out Saturday mornings]] to [[Creator/FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids]]. Those who were teenagers during the late '90s or early 2000s will remember it for giving the world such {{teen drama}}s as ''Series/SeventhHeaven'', ''Series/DawsonsCreek'', and ''{{Everwood}}'' -- shows that the network is, without a doubt, most famous for. Still others (teenagers and genre fans alike) remember the network for ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'' and ''{{Roswell}}'' until those two series were picked up -- perhaps ironically, in hindsight -- by UPN (The WB still held onto ''Series/{{Angel}}'' at least). And of course, the network churned out quite a bit of SitCom and particularly DomCom flavored shows during its life.

* ''Waynehead'': A short-lived cartoon based on the life of comedian and former ''SaturdayNightLive'' and ''InLivingColor'' [[note]]mostly ''In Living Color'', since his sole season on ''SNL'' was met with backstage tension and termination over ad-libbing. Plus, most people remember Damon Wayans as an ''In Living Color'' cast member, as that was the guy who played bitter, white-man-hating birthday clown Homie the Clown and incredibly CampyGay movie critic, Blaine Edwards[[/note]] cast member, Damon Wayans (the same one who is related to Keenan-Ivory, Shawn, Marlon, Kim, and Damon, Jr.) as a kid with an abnormally large, bald head and a leg brace for his club foot (which the real Damon Wayans had).

At one point, The WB was reborn as an online network, airing both older shows (including most of their old teen dramas) and original programming. In late 2013, this site was discontinued and replaced by a promotional site called ''Warner Bros. Television Media to Go'' for programs from Warner Bros. Television, thus putting the final nail in the coffin for the history of The WB. The revived Kids' WB website struggled on for two more years before getting the ax as well.
