And of course, many still remember it for turing the [[OneSceneWonder one-toon wonder]] [[WesternAnimation/OneFroggyEvening Michigan J. Frog]] [[BreakoutCharacter into a household name]] while at the same time reducing him into a cheap corporate shill for the network (to the point where some TV writers and announcers referred to The WB as "The Frog") until the frog quietly exited the stage from advertisements and promotions during the last two years of the network's life (though [[BackForTheFinale his image]] was [[TearJerker one of the last transmitted by the network]]; the last thing shown before the network was officially shut down were the end credits of the pilot episode of ''Dawson's Creek'').

'''The WB''' was a joint venture between Time Creator/{{Warner|Bros}} and Tribune Company with the former company calling the shots. As [[FollowTheLeader a reaction to the success]] of the fledgling Creator/{{Fox}} network, TW launched their own network in 1995, with Tribune's then-independents (WPIX in UsefulNotes/{{New York|City}}, KTLA in UsefulNotes/LosAngeles, WGN in UsefulNotes/{{Chicago}}, KWGN in UsefulNotes/{{Denver}}, etc.) serving as the network's nucleus. Unlike UPN, it also had a major boost with WGN's national superstation feed on cable (now WGN America, which eventually cut all ties to WGN-TV in 2014) carrying it for its first four years until it could get more affiliates.
