** The Wally Llama, who simply wanted a break from answering so many stupid questions. Granted, he could've explained more clearly and politely to the Warners that he just wanted to rest. But the audience was meant to root for the Warners who torment him to insanity.

* WereStillRelevantDammit: One of the common criticisms of the Kids' WB episodes is it started relying much more heavily on 90's pop culture references and parodies, such as ''Film/{{Speed}}'', ''Film/{{Fargo}},'' ''Series/{{Friends}}'', and the [[OneHitWonder "Macarena."]] The episode parodying ''American Gladiators'' was particularly bad about this. The ''Disney/BeautyAndtheBeast'' parody was another noteworthy example.

** While people do love Rita's singing, some find her singing too much on her shorts.



* DesignatedVillain: Candie Chipmunk from the Slappy Squirrel short "I Got Yer Can". Slappy torments her just for reprimanding her on disposing of her trash in other people's bins, and while Candie does snap at a pair of nuns and Santa Claus, it's only because she's become psychotically paranoid that they are Slappy and Skippy in disguise pulling more pranks to get her stuck with Slappy's empty soda can.

* AudienceInducedApathy: Most of the people the WArners go against are incredibly mean or self-centered, which makes seeing them getting abused all the more funny.

* SeasonalRot: Some fans consider the Creator/KidsWB episodes this. It's just that the "spark" seems to be missing.

* SeasonalRot: Some fans consider Under Creator/KidsWB, the Creator/KidsWB series began to rely a lot more on pop-cultural references, (including {{Whole Plot Reference}}s) blatantly recycle material, and run gags into the ground. It doesn't help that WB refused to produce new episodes this. It's just in favor of unreleased material, and were fighting the producers tooth and nail over the fact that the "spark" seems to be missing.show was attracting more adults than children.

** One of the show's most well-known gags: the "[[Rader/{{Animaniacs}} Finger]] Music/{{Prince}}" bit, has become noticeably hard to watch in light of Prince's passing.

** The short "Yes, Always" seems pretty random and strange unless you're aware of the Creator/OrsonWelles Findus commercial taping that it brilliantly spoofs (and that Creator/MauriceLaMarche's "Brain" voice is a spot-on impersonation of a younger Welles). There's a also a nested bonus when the director bemoans getting kicked out of the booth by Brain even after she "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Labor_Management_Relations_Act_of_1947 Taft-Hartley]]ed" him on his first job (as in, she got him work on that gig without having to join the union first).
