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. Tom Ruegger [[https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/4ehhxz/iama_tom_ruegger_creator_of_animaniacs_ama/d204yuk has expressed an interest in reviving the show]]. Spielberg and Warner Bros. announced in May 2017 that [[https://www.indiewire.com/2017/05/animaniacs-reboot-steven-spielberg-amblin-1201817336 a reboot is definitely happening]].

* ThisIsGonnaSuck: Done with Slappy Squirrel in "Bumbie's Mom," after Slappy has cheered Skippy up from the trauma of ''[[Disney/{{Bambi}} Bumbie]]'', on the plane ride home they watch the in-flight movie, which turns out to be ''[[Literature/OldYeller Old Yellow]]''. Slappy gives an OhCrap face when we hear the titular dog being shot, and then she flatly comments "Uh-oh," not amused by what's about to happen ([[HereWeGoAgain Skippy bawling loudly again]].)

* BigBallofViolence: A classic Looney Tunes gag adopted into Animaniacs. Pesto uses this every time his Berserk Button is pushed.

** One episode in particular was dedicated to this: every segment featured two characters from different shorts going through the typical plots of their own cartoons. Mindy was paired with Brain, who attempted to create a revolting stink bomb while babysitting her; Rita and Pinky shared a (very brief) short wherein the cat, quite logically, ate the mouse; Squit and Runt tried to find themselves a decent home, only to be doomed by the pigeon's short temper; Katie Ka-Boom brought her new boyfriend "C.B."-that is, Chicken Boo--over for a date, and became furious when her family pointed out that he was a chicken; Dot briefly took over Slappy's tree and blew up the audience with a bomb for [[BerserkButton calling her Dottie]]; and Slappy herself (along with Flavio the Hip Hippo in a cameo) joined the Warners in their own cartoon, where she lost all patience for their zany antics and wordplay and ended up using her traditional arsenal of bombs.

* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: "Dot's Quiet Time" sees the titular character traveling all over the world in an effort to find a silent, peaceful spot to do some reading. When she finally does find one, she sits down and turns a few pages...then realizes that it's ''too'' quiet. Dot promptly pulls out a boombox and starts [[ThemeTuneCameo blasting the theme song]].

** The clown in "Clown and Out" is pretty much Jerry Lewis in whiteface and a silly outfit.



* PaperThinDisguise: Exaggerated with Chicken Boo.

* PaperThinDisguise: Exaggerated with Chicken Boo. Every sketch opened with a new group of people (Hollywood actors, Confederate soldiers, people in a karate tournament, etc.) singing the praises of Boo---who, as a reminder, is a six-foot tall chicken with absolutely ''no'' anthropomorphic features--who would then show up in the absolutely flimsiest of disguises (such as an extremely small mustache, a robe and headband, or a hat and wig). [[TheCassandra Exactly one person]] would realize Boo's true nature and try to tell everyone one about it ("HE'S A CHICKEN, I TELL YOU! A GIANT CHICKEN!") only to be disregarded. When Boo's disguise inevitably came off, the entire group would react in shock, and the chicken would be forced to move on to find another bunch to join.

* BasementDweller: The "examples" in the short about the "Please, Please, PLEASE Get a Life" Foundation. Thirty-something men? Check. [[FanDumb Obsessing over the minutiae of the show?]] Check. GeekPhysiques? Check. Interestingly, they're shown using the Internet to vent their rage; given that the show debuted in the mid-90's, this was new technology at the time.



* BreadEggsBreadedEggs: Taken UpToEleven in "Survey Ladies," in which Yakko, Wakko, and Dot are accosted at the mall by two elderly women with [[UsefulNotes/AmericanAccents Midwestern accents]] who are stopping random passersby to ask them poll questions. ("Wouldja like ta take a surr-vay?!" they keep asking.) The first question is "Do you like beans?" The second question is "Do you like George Wendt?" [the actor who played Norm Peterson on ''Series/{{Cheers}}''] And then after that come a seemingly infinite number of questions that all combine the themes of beans and George Wendt in various ways. ("Would you like to see George Wendt eating beans in a movie?" "How many George Wendt bean-eating movies would you like to see?" "Do you like to eat beans with George Wendt?", etc.) The poll-takers continue annoying the Warners - and various other characters - throughout the cartoon, and are [[OffscreenInertia still rattling off questions as the cartoon ends]].
