* AdultFear: An extra long Slappy episode starts out innocently enough, with Slappy driven crazy from daytime talk shows, causing her to spout gibberish catch phrases and repeatedly toast her hat. Things quickly turn dark when Slappy is taken to the doctor who says she's having "an episode", and encourages Skippy to send her to a nursing home. Trying to care for his aunt himself makes Skippy fall asleep in class, and Slappy nearly burns their house down. The episode shows surprisingly realistic repercussions of what amounts to a child's primary caregiver coming down with dementia... Skippy tries in vain to trigger his Aunt's memories when he visits her, and is eventually taken into foster care when its discovered he's living on his own, but without giving him the opportunity to tell Slappy what's happened. Eventually its the irregularity of Skippy not being around that snaps Slappy back to reality, and her slapstick escape from the nursing home keeps this from being one of the most sobering children's cartoons of the 90's.

* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Wakko and Plotz are both so terrified of clowns that the mere presence of one in "Clown and Out" makes them uncharacteristacally nervous.

* WilyWalrus: In the episode "Bumbie's Mom", a walrus lady complains when Skippy starts crying in the theater, and she's very rude about it. However, [[GoodIsNotNice Slappy]] quickly shuts her up.

* '''Buttons and Mindy''': A toddler, voiced by [[http://www.thenancyshow.com/ Nancy Cartwright]] of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' fame, roams around unsupervised; she is completely oblivious to the dangers around her and [[ConstantlyCurious asks questions of everyone she meets]]. The family dog, Buttons (Frank Welker), [[BadlyBatteredBabysitter runs himself ragged trying to return Mindy to her parents]], and invariably ends up being scolded by them for some minor mishap once she is safe.

Produced by Creator/StevenSpielberg, ''Animaniacs'' was a [[GenreThrowback revival of an old show concept]]: a collection of cartoon shorts in a half-hour kids' show. Rather than recycling or remaking old theatrical shorts, ''Animaniacs'' relied on original stories featuring original characters (though it did indulge in a bit of self-referential cliché-riding at times). This approach was unique in [[TheNineties the 1990s]], since goofball[=/=]slapstick-type shows (think WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes[=/=][[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Merrie Melodies]]) were being systematically driven out by MoralGuardians who thought that slapstick was too violent for children's TV (something that was frequently a target of the show's humor).

''Animaniacs'' was also unique production-wise: Spielberg gave the writers complete creative freedom over the direction of sketches (just like with ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' and ''WesternAnimation/{{Freakazoid}}''), which is why many fans hold such fond memories of it. Viewers don't love it because of NostalgiaGoggles -- it was a genuinely creative and well-written show (its Emmy awards attest to that). Kids even ''learned'' from it; most of Generation Y will fondly remember trying to memorize "Yakko's World" and "Wakko's America" for geography tests. Raise your hand if you learned about the conquistadors because of "The Ballad of Magellan". Who says educational shows can't be fun?

Unlike other {{Saturday Morning Cartoon}}s, ''Animaniacs'' didn't air on {{Nickelodeon}} or Creator/CartoonNetwork (at least not initially; syndication reruns have appeared on both channels.) It originally aired on Creator/FoxKids (on the Fox television network), and (later) Creator/KidsWB, both of which were programming blocks on broadcast network stations, making ''Animaniacs'' a godsend to kids without cable. On January 7, 2013, the show began airing on Creator/TheHub. The entire series is now available on DVD, and is currently available on Netflix.

* '''The Warner Brothers ([[InsistentTerminology and the Warner Sister]])''': Yakko (RobPaulsen), Wakko (Creator/JessHarnell), and sister [[OddNameOut Dot]] (TressMacNeille) were cartoon characters that resembled anthropomorphic dogs or cats (at least within the show they were occasionally referred to as "puppy children", "kiddies", or "kidsies"). Their {{Backstory}} indicates that they were created in the 1930s by the Warner Studios animators, then [[ArtInitiatesLife leapt off the page]] and ran amok through the studio. The Warners' cartoons ("which made absolutely no sense") were put in the studio vault, never to be released. As for the Warners themselves ("who made even less sense"), they were [[SealedGoodInACan locked in the studio's water tower]] and the studio [[UnPerson publicly disavowed any knowledge of their existence.]] The Warners eventually escape and HilarityEnsues. (No, really, it actually does.) Studio psychiatrist Dr. Otto Scratchnsniff (Rob Paulsen), his [[HelloNurse exceptionally-hot female assistant]] (Creator/TressMacNeille), dimwitted studio security guard Ralph (Creator/FrankWelker), and blustering studio president Thaddeus Plotz (Frank Welker again) suffer more from the trio's antics than anyone else. Some of the shorts involving the Warners were their "classic" cartoons, which played with different animation styles and tropes based on the cartoons of the time they were said to be from. When not following classic formulas, the Warners engaged in well constructed parodies of pop-culture[[note]]which became '''much''' more frequent in later episodes of the Creator/KidsWB run[[/note]] (of [[AffectionateParody both]] [[DeconstructiveParody kinds]]) or inserted themselves into history (wherein they would simultaneously both annoy and inspire famous figures like UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln and Ludwig van Beethoven). Not content with breaking the fourth wall in their own shorts, they would occasionally come dashing through ''other'' characters' shorts, usually with Ralph in hot pursuit.
* '''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain''': A pair of lab mice named Pinky (Rob Paulsen) and the Brain (MauriceLaMarche) live in a laboratory. The highly intelligent Brain is constantly thinking up plans to TakeOverTheWorld overnight, but his schemes always end in spectacular failure, usually due to the interference of the dimwitted Pinky. Nevertheless, he resolves to come up with a new idea for the next night. These shorts became popular enough to warrant a SpinOff series (which has its own page).
* '''Rita and Runt:''' Two stray animals -- a cat (Bernadette Peters) who sings showtunes (with changed lyrics) and a dopey (RainMan-inspired) dog voiced by Frank Welker -- try to find a home throughout time and space. These shorts had a tendency to be a bit more melancholy than the others.
* '''Slappy Squirrel:''' A washed-up old cartoon star from "the good old days" (voiced by production writer Sherri Stoner) works through modern-day problems with old-school cartoon techniques (that is to say, violence -- preferably of the extreme and/or explosive kind). Her personality is based on being old and cranky (with the occasional menopause joke), and (in typical "senior citizen" fashion) she thinks all the modern cartoon stars are no-good punks. Most of her shorts center around her MediumAwareness, and she is often accompanied by her nephew Skippy (voiced by producer Tom Ruegger's son Nathan), who helps to balance out her cynical attitude with his bright-eyed child-like optimism. Her opposite number is the equally elderly Walter Wolf.
* '''Minerva Mink:''' An [[MsFanservice oversexualized]] [[TalkingAnimal mink]] (Julie Brown) who used her feminine wiles to get what she wanted (although in one case [[GenderFlip she had the tables unexpectedly turned on her]]). She only starred in two shorts, but she showed up in others and ''Film/WakkosWish'' as a background character ''and'' got a few dedicated comics in the ''Animaniacs'' comic book series (all of which basically followed the same formula as the shorts). Minerva also spawned a million pages of UsefulNotes/{{Furry|Fandom}} fanart, which was one of the main reasons why the creators stopped making cartoons featuring her as a main character.
* '''Goodfeathers:''' A direct parody of ''Film/{{Goodfellas}}'' and other gangster films. Three New Yorker pigeons named Squit, Bobby, and Pesto (Maurice [=LaMarche=], John Mariano, and Chick Vennera) try to run the streets under the watchful eye of the Godpigeon; the trio lives on a statue of Creator/MartinScorsese.
* '''Buttons and Mindy:''' A toddler, voiced by [[http://www.thenancyshow.com/ Nancy Cartwright]] of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' fame, roams around unsupervised; she is completely oblivious to the dangers around her and [[ConstantlyCurious asks questions of everyone she meets]]. The family dog, Buttons (Frank Welker), [[BadlyBatteredBabysitter runs himself ragged trying to return Mindy to her parents]], and invariably ends up being scolded by them for some minor mishap once she is safe.
* '''Chicken Boo:''' A giant rooster whose [[PaperThinDisguise lame attempts to pass as a human]] incomprehensibly succeed, [[YouHaveToBelieveMe one person's protests]] notwithstanding. A minor accident (losing a baseball cap, for instance) inexplicably reveals Boo's true nature to everyone around him, wherein he is shunned and kicked out, but he always brushes himself off and walks away to find the next big opportunity.
* '''Katie Kaboom:''' A girl (Laura Mooney) who literally develops into a monster and then explodes with rage (causing massive damage to the house and landscape) over minor, stereotypical teenage problems, such as her boyfriend being late to pick her up. She was based on the teenage daughter of one of the writers.
* '''The Hip Hippos:''' An exceedingly heavy hippopotamus couple, Flavio and Marita (Frank Welker and [=Tress MacNeille=], respectively), whose ''nouveau-riche'' lifestyle and utter reliance on luxury leaves them helpless in situations where money won't make a difference. They also have a tendency to get into dangerous situations, even though their heavy frames generally protect them from any actual harm. Occasionally shadowed by a naturalist named Gena Embryo (whose name is a parody of/reference to San Diego Zoo zoologist Joan Embery) who tries (unsuccessfully) to return them to the jungle or protect them from harm (which usually ends up befalling her instead).

Other supporting cast members included Mr. Skullhead (in the "Good Idea, Bad Idea" shorts), a {{n|oNameGiven}}ameless [[AcceptableTargets disaster-prone]] [[EveryoneHatesMimes mime]], a nameless kid who is the friend of another (never shown) kid named "Randy Beaman", and Mr. Director (a crazed movie director based on Jerry Lewis and voiced by production writer Paul Rugg).

A DirectToVideo [[TheMovie movie]], ''WesternAnimation/WakkosWish'', was created following the show's run; rather than being a compilation of various shorts (old or new), it was a film with a self-contained plot which saw all of the show's main characters (and several background characters) interacting with one another. See TheResolutionWillNotBeTelevised below.
