In 1999, ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' was pretty much on its last leg as Creator/KidsWB's signature show -- many of its writers and voice actors had moved on to ''WesternAnimation/{{Histeria}}'' and ''Anime/{{Pokemon}}'' was fast becoming the most successful show of the block -- but at the end of the year, the series was given a GrandFinale in the form of the direct-to-video movie '''''Wakko's Wish'''''.

The Hip Hippos didn't even get their own lines, they were just chorus members.

* BitingTheHandHumor: The nation of Warnerstock being taken over by the neighboring Ticktockia is apparently a reference to the Time-Warner merger that occurred in 1990- though Time didn't take over the company (indeed, WB's rival Paramount actually interfered via suing), but presumably someone on the writing staff disliked the merger for whatever reason. Also note how Salazar is referred to as a "corporate raider".
