* CanonSue: Hello Nurse, if Wakko's song with the title character's accurate, especially the 'Let lighting strike us dead!' part. Subverted in Wakko's Wish where she was just beautiful and highly intelligent and just wanted people to like her for her brains rather then her looks. ** The Warners themselves are powerful to the point of immortal, yet just about avoid this trope.

*** Chicken Boo for similar reasons, though he has some fans due to the surrealness of the one-joke premise.

*** Chicken Boo for similar reasons, though he has some fans due to the surrealness of the one-joke premise. Interestingly, the two characters appeared together in "Katie Ka-Boo" where she discovers her boyfriend is Chicken Boo and goes berserk ("I AM ''NOT'' OVER-REACTING! '''''I'M DATING A CHICKEN!!!'''''").

* 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, due to airing only a few months before the actual show was cancelled. The ''Disney/BeautyAndtheBeast'' parody was another noteworthy example, airing five years after the movie had come out.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: In the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k1SOThYNXck "I'm Mad" song]]. Were The Warner's genuinely ticked off? Or was this a mind game set up from the beginning just to drive Doctor Scratch'n'Sniff insane? (You know, like they love doing every other episode?)

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

* UnintentionallySympathetic: Some of the Warners' victims qualify to certain, a good example is the Wally Llama mentioned below who simply wanted a break from answering stupid and pointless questions.

** Rita also counts as a woobie, as most of her misfortunes show examples of [[DudeNotFunny unfairness and inequality]]. Runt counts too for the same reason, but generally shrugs things off a lot easier.

** The title character in "Wally Llama", an apparently all-knowing creature, has spent countless hours answering increasingly stupid questions, and eventually decides he's done for the day and sits down to take a well-deserved break. Cue the Warners showing up and relentlessly heckling him to answer a supposedly "extremely important" question. His attempts to make them leave are admittedly somewhat rude and nasty, but the lengths they go to in order to get him to answer [[spoiler: what ultimately turns out to be a petty and stupid question[[note]]Namely, why hot dogs come in 8-packs while hot dog buns come in 10-packs[[/note]]]] arguably venture into DudeNotFunny or even MoralEventHorizon territory! They finally trick him into listening to their question by using reverse psychology, and when it turns out he doesn't know the answer, [[spoiler: he goes completely insane and runs off laughing insanely]] while the Warners, showing absolutely no remorse for their behavior, [[spoiler: simply shrug it off as the cartoon ends.]]

** "Wakko's America". ** "Baton Rouge, Louisiana; Indianapolis, Indiana; and Columbus is the capital of Ohio!..." Jess Harnell can still sing the whole song from memory. Also an awesome EarWorm.

* EvenBetterSequel: Animaniacs was the successor to ''Tiny Toon Adventures'' and has been considered one of the crown jewels of Warner Bros. Animation. Though some people would argue otherwise that Tiny Toons, Pinky and the Brain, or Freakazoid where better. Most people ,however, seem to like at least one of them.
