** Creator/CharlieAdler auditioned to do voicework on this show (and his rejection is why he quit ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures''). One wonders what character he would have voiced if he was hired on the show.

** [[http://www2.cruzio.com/~keeper/ysmwduck.jpg/ The concept for the show was originally going to star a family/group of green ducks, since the baby version of Plucky Duck from ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' went over so well, but wouldn't be related to Plucky and would have nothing to do with the rest of that cast. The team eventually decided that ducks [[ItsBeenDone "have been done"]] and retooled the premise to star 1930s-style cartoon characters.]]

** In the phase where the Animaniacs were going to be ducks, they consisted of three brothers - Yakky (the chatty character), Smakky (an ill-tempered character with a predilection for violence), and Wakky (the odd and energetic character). As the design evolved away from ducks, a sister (who was not named in concept art) was added to the ensemble. Yakky shared Yakko's body design, but was dressed only in a blue bow-tie, Smakky had Wacko's body and clothes (albeit with a green shirt instead of a blue one), but a sported a scowl and perpetually had his arms crossed, Wakky was a small, Dot-sized character who wore blue shorts, and Dot's design at this point included a pink blouse and a pink bow in her hair. Yakky would eventually become Yakko, with the only major change being swapping out the bow tie for a pair of brown slacks. Wakko was born from merging Wakky's personality and Smakky's character design, while Smakky was ultimately dropped as a character. Dot more or less went unchanged aside from abandoning her blouse and swapping out the bow for a flower.

* CrossdressingVoices: While the series mostly subverts this with young male characters ,being voiced by either [[DawsonCasting adult males]] or [[ChildrenVoicingChildren actual boys]], most dubs play this straight. But one of the more interesting cases is that unlike most versions, Wakko in the Latin American dub is voiced by voice actress Giset Blanco,.

* OutOfOrder: The exact production order isn't clear, but the first season -- which accounts for the majority of the series' run -- was clearly aired out of order because some characters' introductory episodes, like Minerva Mink and Katie Ka-Boom, clearly aren't their actual first appearances. The DVD releases retained this error, leading to "Meet Minerva" not showing up until the third volume out of four.
