Meet the LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters from the Creator/WarnerBros Creator/StevenSpielberg-produced cartoon ''Animaniacs'' and its spin-off ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain''. They are categorized by which characters starred in which segments. The characters that show up in ''Pinky And The Brain'', including Pinky and the Brain, who started as characters as part of a segment of ''Animaniacs'', should get listed in the ''Characters/PinkyAndTheBrain'' Character Sheet.

!!The Warner Siblings


The Warner siblings who are the most prominent stars of the show, and as such, get the most screentime. According to the show's backstory, they were created to serve as comic relief to the very dull ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' character Buddy, but proved to be so troublesome that they were locked in the Warner Bros. Studio Water Tower.
* AerithAndBob: Unlike the other two, "Dot" can be a real name.
* BadassAdorable: Dot most of all because she's "the cute one".
* BarefootCartoonAnimal: Most of the instances where they are wearing full outfits.
* BeenThereShapedHistory: They've had run ins with several historical figures and had a big influence over their achievements. They've inspired Albert Einstein to write E=MC, helped Michelangelo paint the Sistine Chapel, and inspired Picasso and Beethoven.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: They may be goofy and crazy, but do not underestimate them.
* CardboardPrison: As a result of their antics, the Warner siblings were locked away in the water tower on the Warner Bros. Studios lot, and allegedly hadn't escaped until the series premiere. However, it's shown in later episodes that not only were Yakko, Wakko, and Dot able to get out whenever they wanted, but were even let out more than once while the tower was being fumigated. Furthermore, similar to ComicBook/TheJoker's attitude towards Arkham Asylum, they view their so-called "prison" as their home, and always return to it willingly when they're done causing chaos.
* CartoonCreature: They have red noses, puppy dog ears, and kitty cat tails. Though others often refer to them as "puppy children," they insist they aren't puppies.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: They take this trope to extremes, as even their theme song is filled with non-sequiturs and bizarre references. Wakko, however, seems to be the most extreme of the three
* CulturedBadass: Especially Yakko, but all three have a lot of knowledge in many different subjects.
* DeadpanSnarker: Yakko's the most deadpan, but...
* DependingOnTheWriter: Who sleeps where on their triple-decker bunk bed - or for that matter, whether they have a triple-decker bunk bed or each have a bed of their own.
* DirtyOldMan: [[InsistentTerminology (And a]] [[DirtyOldWoman woman!)]] The "old" part only comes in when you realize that they were drawn in the thirties, and just look and act like kids.
* TheDreaded: PlayedForLaughs.
* {{Expy}}: Of WesternAnimation/BugsBunny because of their statuses as {{Karmic Trickster}}s and being created by Warner Bros.
* {{Flanderization}}: While early episodes made it clear that the Warners are only deliberately annoying to those who are mean to them, several of the show's later episodes had them bother and cause harm to other people when not provoked. This is especially notable in "Toy Shop Terror" (where they wreak havoc in a toy store during closing hours while the owner is trying to sleep) and "Back in Style" (where they ridicule and inflict pain on the stars of the cartoons Warner Bros. loaned them to for money).
* FunPersonified: They know how to have fun all the time and they are usually annoyingly hyper and cheerful.
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: Yakko just wears pants, Wakko just wears a shirt, and Dot just wears a skirt. This was [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in a Creator/KidsWB promo talking about how the block featured cartoons "with pants and with no pants".
-->'''Jeff Bennett''': ''Animaniacs'' gives you pants and no pants conveniently in one show!\\
'''Wakko''': I have pants! See?\\
'''Jeff''': Liar liar, pants on fire!
** Also lampshaded in the episode "Animaniacs Stew."
-->'''Dot''': And what's so special about it '''(the episode)'''?\\
'''Wakko''': I'm not wearing any pants!
* {{Hammerspace}}: Although Wakko uses his most often (see above).
* InkblotCartoonStyle: The Warners' design was inspired by this 1930s style; and then justified by giving them an in-universe creation date in the 1930s..
* KarmicTrickster: They will be cheerful and annoying towards ''anyone'', but their antics are generally harmless (in fact, they can be pretty nice and polite kids)... unless someone's being a colossal jerk, who then becomes their "Special Friend" and the mallets come out. In one episode, they're being driven crazy by a parody of the nanny from ''Theatre/TheSoundOfMusic''... but can't bring themselves to clobber her, because she's not doing anything ''wrong'', something which is lampshaded in the middle of the episode as part of a moral code of sorts. After attempting and failing to provoke a reaction from her, [[spoiler:they hire [[ScrewySquirrel Slappy]], who lacks such a code.]]
* MouthyKid: The Warners (especially Yakko and Dot) aren't afraid to put adults in their place or spout out snarky comments about adults' behavior, but most of the adults that they treat with disdain are [[ItsAllAboutMe self-centered]] [[{{Jerkass}} jerkasses]].
* NaughtyIsGood: They are portrayed as heroic characters and usually mischievous with people who deserve it.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed:
** Yakko is based very much on [[Creator/TheMarxBrothers Groucho Marx]].
** Wakko shows traits from Music/RingoStarr as well as [[Creator/TheMarxBrothers Harpo Marx]].
** Dot was inspired by Gilda Radner, among others.
* NotAllowedToGrowUp: According to an interview with Tom Ruegger, creator and writer of the show, has confirmed that the Warners' biological ages are 14, 11, and 9. Despite their origin of being created in the 30's.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: Especially seen in the episode "Taming Of The Screwy" where Dr. Scratchansniff desperately tries to teach them good manners in most of the episode, but at the end it's revealed they are perfectly capable of acting well-mannered and serious.
* OlderThanTheyLook: They had a 65th anniversary special in-universe and they were drawn at their current age back in the 30s so they are pretty much late 70s to early 80s.
* OldShame: An in-universe example. The people at Warner Bros. Studios have been so ashamed of the Warners that in addition to locking them away in a water tower, they also refused to release any of their cartoons or to publicly acknowledge the trio's existence.
* PopCulturedBadass: There are plenty of pop culture references.
* RoyalBlood: In "King Yakko "[[spoiler: and in "Wakko's Wish."]]
* ScrewySquirrel: At their worst. A lot of what the Warners do could be needlessly cruel to the point of making them unsympathetic, such as stripping Otto (a friendly guy who wasn't being a jerk) in the "Schnitzelbank" song or leaving the woodchuck in the toilet in "Kid in the Lid"... until you remember that [[spoiler:everyone's an actor; hardly any of what takes place is "real".]] The Warners were much guiltier of this in early episodes... as the series progressed, the writers put more effort into showing that, even if their victims weren't specifically mean to ''them'', they'd at least make it clear that they were bad people in general.
* SealedGoodInACan: Being locked up in a water tower for several decades certainly counts, though the fact several episodes show them venturing through several different time periods (World War II among them, which largely took place a decade after they were supposedly locked up) implies they might not have even been locked up that long.
* SmarterThanYouLook: As bizarre and insane as all three of them act, they have an utterly brilliant grasp of geography, history and a host of other subjects. They can recite the nations of the world, all 50 US states and their capitals, and every President of the United States from ''memory'' with no difficulty, and can even throw in some random facts about each while they do it.
* TheThingThatWouldNotLeave: Played for laughs. Throw them bodily out the door, turn around, and ''there they are.'' Hilariously, they're on the ''receiving'' end of this upon occasion. Notably from the likes of [[OldWindbag Pip]], Baloney the Dinosaur, and [[ChronicPetKiller Elmyra]].
* ThisMeansWar: Push them too far, and they will say (in unison) this variation of Groucho's and Bugs' quote.
* TooSpicyForYogSothoth: Repeatedly.
* TheTrickster: Since they are based on WesternAnimation/BugsBunny, this is a given.
* TwoGuysAndAGirl: Non-romantic variant, obviously.
* WhiteGloves- All three wears these. In a episode, Wakko's gloves take on a life of their own.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: They're afraid of Mr. Director's eccentricity, Baloney the Dinosaur, the public outhouse (that hasn't been washed in years), and hippies.

->'''Voiced by''': Creator/RobPaulsen (English), Creator/RyuseiNakao (Japanese), Rafael Monsalve (Latin American Spanish)

* AllMenArePerverts: Shares this with his brother Wakko, particularly when Hello Nurse is around.
* AmbiguouslyJewish: He's based on Creator/GrouchoMarx and his first name is based on the Yiddish name "Yakov". He and his siblings enthusiastically celebrate Christmas, though.
* BigBrotherInstinct: When Wakko dies after eating too many Swedish meatballs, you better believe Yakko literally goes to Hell and back to rescue him. (Dot too, of course, but she's Wakko's ''little'' sister.) Also gets expressed subtly throughout, with things like leading his siblings around by the hand and shielding them from danger. He's straight up PromotedToParent in ''Wakko's Wish''.
* BubblePipe: Yakko occasionally "puffs" on a soap-bubble pipe while parodying highbrow intellectuals.
* {{Catchphrase}}: "[[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Goodnight everybody!]]"
* CulturedBadass: As wacky as he is, Yakko is still the most literate of the three. He is also shown to be capable of speaking ''proper and actual Japanese'', as opposed to the stereotyped barely-Asian-sounding gibberish you usually get in western cartoons.
* DeadpanSnarker: While all of the Warner siblings could indulge in this a bit, Yakko was the standout.
* {{Determinator}}: One interesting example is him singing all the words in the English language. He's obviously broken down when shown singing the "Z" words but refuses to quit and doesn't faint until being requested to [[ImpossibleTask sing all the numbers above zero]].
* TheFace: While the trio definitely played off each other, Yakko appeared in the most skits, typically got the most lines, and got to sing the most songs.
* HiddenBackupPrince: To the royal family of Anvilania.
* TheLeader: In so far as the Warners can be said to have a leader, Yakko is it.
* MeaningfulName: Of the three Warner siblings, Yakko's certainly the most vocal.
* MotorMouth: Especially when he starts singing.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: He's pretty obviously based on Creator/GrouchoMarx.
* TheSouthpaw: He's left handed.
* TeamDad: He is the "guardian" of the trio, or the parental figure, as he seems to take charge in many situations, and acts generally in a father-manner towards his siblings (Especially in Wakko's Wish).
* TrouserSpace: Yakko keeps lots of things in his pants.
* UnexpectedSuccessor: He's something like [[ a second cousin twice removed]] to the Anvilanian bloodline.
* VerbalTic: Tends to say "Uhhhhh..." at the beginning of a sentence. Especially right before a zinger.

->'''Voiced by''': Creator/JessHarnell, Creator/MauriceLaMarche (Wakko's burps in "The Great Wakkorotti" shorts) (English), Creator/YuuMizushima (Japanese), Giset Blanco (Latin American Spanish)

* {{Adorkable}}: Wakko is an adorable, precious goofball, through and through.
* AlliterativeName: '''W'''akko '''W'''arner.
* AllDrummersAreAnimals: Whenever drums are needed, such as in a {{Rimshot}} gag or "Little Drummer Warners", he's the one who plays them—which could be explained by this trope, [[FridgeBrilliance the fact that he's based on Ringo]], or both.
* AllMenArePerverts: Shares this with his brother Yakko, particularly when Hello Nurse is around.
* BerserkButton: Giving him an F (especially on his hat).
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's a sweet-natured kid, but he's perfectly willing to mallet anyone who annoys him. And when he gets ''REALLY'' mad... watch out.
* BigEater: As the theme song states, "Wakko packs away the snacks". Yakko and Dot might eat their weight in sweets, but Wakko's the type to gobble up everything in the refrigerator, and then eat the fridge for dessert.
* {{Catchphrase}}: "Faboo!"
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: Wakko seems to be the most extreme of the three. In one episode where the kids visit a shopping mall, he walks the wrong way on an escalator and declares "Mine's broken." Yakko explains it as "middle kid syndrome."
* CrazyPrepared: He has almost anything in his [[{{Hammerspace}} Gag Bag]].
* EquippableAlly: One scene features Yakko using Wakko as a {{Gatling|Good}} gun to shoot malted milk balls at a candy store owner.
* ExtremeOmnivore: Wakko can and will eat anything you put in front of him.
* {{Gasshole}}: Wakko's ridiculous burping is provided by Creator/MauriceLaMarche, who can actually do that on cue.
* MeaningfulName: By a narrow margin, Wakko is the craziest of the Warners (it's the ditziness).
* MiddleChildSyndrome: Probably most evident in that Yakko is a HiddenBackupPrince, Dot introduces herself as "Princess", but he has no noble title at all.
* NiceHat: He wears a red hat.
* PottyEmergency: The TropeNamer and one of his most famous ADayInTheLimelight episodes has him needing to pee after drinking a large soda while at the movies. After a most sadistic search, he finally gets the relief he needs by installing a toilet from his gaggy bag into a room in the very movie he and his siblings are watching.
* TheQuietOne: In some gags, he doesn't even talk.
* {{Rimshot}}: One of Wakko's jurisdictions is to supply these as necessary.
* UnexplainedAccent: Wakko has a Liverpudlian brogue for absolutely no damn reason -- at least not one ever explained on the show. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in that he's a cartoon character in-universe and therefore pretty much runs on RuleOfFunny. His voice actor, Jess Harnell, explains that RuleOfFunny is the only reason why he gave Wakko the accent.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: "Clown and Out" (another popular [[ADayInTheLimelight "day in the limelight" episode]] featuring Wakko)
* YoungerThanTheyLook: He's only 7 according to the "HelloNurse" song, but writers have explained that he only said it in order to rhyme with "heaven". WordOfGod [[note]]in this case, from Tom Ruegger[[/note]] is that the Warners' ages aren't specified beyond "not old enough to date". And course they're technically [[OlderThanTheyLook in their 60s]].

->'''Voiced by''': Creator/TressMacNeille (English), Creator/IkueOtani (Japanese), Elena Prieto (Latin American Spanish)

* BadassAdorable: She is a cute little girl in a pink dress with a flower in her hair and she's just as devastatingly annoying as her brothers. She also carries cute little boxes that hold her.. pets.
* BerserkButton: Call her Dottie, and you die.
* CatchPhrase: "''And'' the Warner '''''sister'''''."
* TheCutie:
-->'''Yakko''': I'm Yakko.
-->'''Wakko''': I'm Wakko.
-->'''Dot''': And I'm cute!
* DeliberatelyCuteChild: She exploits her cuteness for all it's worth.
* EarsAsHair: She wears her ears in a scrunchie.
* TheFakeCutie: She likes to think of herself as TheCutie and takes her cuteness very seriously, but she's hardly innocent.
* FlowerInHerHair: Has a cute flower between [[EarsAsHair her ears.]]
* FluffyTheTerrible: Most of Dot's "Pets" when she does the "Wanna See My Pet?"
* GenkiGirl: She has the same energy of her male siblings.
* HairDecorations: Dot's flower.
* HypocriticalHumor: A sexy woman walks by, causing Yakko and usually Wakko to shout "HelloNurse", and Dot insults them for it and sometimes has to drag them away. A sexy man walks by, and she responds in exactly the same way her brothers did.
* InsistentTerminology: Whenever someone refers to the Warner Brothers, expect her to pipe up with "and the Warner ''Sister!''"
* IAmSong: "I'm Cute".
* {{Kawaiiko}}: She might be a Western example of this, as she constantly brags about her cuteness to the point of having an entire song titled "I'm Cute", and being referred to in the theme song as the "cute" one.
* LittleMissSnarker: Not quite to Yakko's level, but Dot can snark quite a bit as well.
* MyFriendsAndZoidberg: Dot is one of the few inversions in western animation that willingly introduces herself as this trope on a regular basis.
* OddNameOut: She's the only Warner that doesn't have an "-akko" name. Lampshaded in one of the comics, when Yakko says that they should have named her "Dakko."
* OverlyLongName: Her full name is Princess Angelina Contessa Louisa Francesca Banana-Fanna Bo Besca the Third. But you can call her Dot. [[BerserkButton Call her Dottie, and you die.]]
* PinkMeansFeminine: Her skirt.
* PottyFailure: Lampshaded: In the episode with Rasputin, at the end when the moral of the day is revealed to be "Brush your teeth," Dot says, "That makes me feel all warm and squishy. Either that or I need to wear diapers."
* SittingSexyOnAPiano: Occasionally.

!!Major and Minor Supporting Characters
!!!Major Supporting and {{Recurring Character}}s

[[folder:Ralph Theodore Guard]]
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/FrankWelker (English), Creator/FumihikoTachiki (Japanese/regular voice), Creator/KozoShioya (Japanese/few episodes)

An overweight Warner Bros. studio security guard who is always trying, but never succeeding, to capture the Warners and return them to the water tower.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: He first appeared (without a name) on ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'' where he was surprisingly competent at keeping the characters from getting into the studios they were trying to visit.
* TheDitz: This guy didn't even notice when the Warners were hiding in ''the chair he was sitting in.''
* EarlyBirdCameo: His ''Tiny Toon Adventures'' appearances.
* FatIdiot: He's dim-witted and very overweight.
* FriendlyEnemy: Although most of his screentime with the Warners involves attempting to capture them while they physically injure him in their attempts to escape, they're pretty cordial to each other when not at odds.
* HappilyMarried: In "A Christmas Plotz" he's shown to have a wife and son.
* PunchClockVillain: He's a security guard: they're anarchy incarnate. You can see how he'd be pitted against them despite a lack of malice on either side.
* RunningGag: His chasing the Warners into the other characters' segments.
* SimpletonVoice: Daaaahh, he takes a while to begin sentences and, daaahhh, complete his thoughts.

[[folder:Dr. Otto von Scratchansniff]]
->'''Voiced by''': Rob Paulsen (English), Koichi Kitamura (Japanese/first voice), Mitsuru Ogata (Japanese/rest of the series)

The Warner Bros. studio psychiatrist. He has the unfortunate duty of trying to tame the Warners, which always leads to him getting utterly frustrated (and in the case of his first sessions with them, tearing out his hair). However, he seems to get along with them well (when he's not being terrorized), and they seem to consider him a father figure.
* AllPsychologyIsFreudian: He's branched out a little - hypnotherapy, group counseling - but when in doubt he returns to Siggy's methods.
* ButtMonkey: The most regular victim of the Warner's antics.
* ChubbyChaser: He attracted to fat women as shown in "Drive-Insane" where he attempts, unsuccessfully, to make an advance on Frau Hassenfeffer.
* CloudcuckoolandersMinder: To his perpetual woe, Plotz assigned ''him'' to try to put an end to the Warner chaos.
* CompanionCube: Mr. Puppethead sometimes begins conversations with Scratchy.
* EinsteinHair: Used to have it. Until he tore it all out during his first therapy session the Warners.
* FriendsAllAlong: When the Warners reveal to the doctor that they're capable of acting normally, he asks them why they put him through so much trouble. All three siblings glomp him and proclaim "Cause we love you!" The doctor's response? A very out-of-character moment by [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming happily gathering up all three Warners in a bear hug]].
* FunnyForeigner: Has accent, ya?
* HairTodayGoneTomorrow: He used to have fluffy Albert Einstein-esque hair before during his first session with the Warners, their antics frustrated him so much he ripped every inch of his hair off his head.
* HerrDoktor: Vaguely Austrian, maybe.
* {{Leitmotif}}: The episodes "De-Zanitized" and "La La Law" both have an instrumental version of "Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen" serve as Otto's theme music.
* MeaningfulName: In the German dub, he's Dr. Freudlos, a double pun: It literally means "Joyless", as well as being a nod to Sigmund Freud.
* NervousWreck: Like most cartoon psychiatrists, he ''needs'' one more than he needs to ''be'' one.
* NoRespectGuy: He was one of the greatest psychiatrists in Hollywood before the Warners arrived.
* OpaqueLenses: His glasses.
* ParentalSubstitute: He becomes the closest thing the Warners have to a father figure, and is the one to take them out on outings.
* TeamDad: The Warners seem to view him as this.
* TheVonTropeFamily: 'Von' just in case you thought he was one of the Hackensack N.J. 'Scratchensniffs'.

[[folder:Hello Nurse]]
->'''Voiced by''': Tress [=MacNeille=] (English), Lilo Schmid (Latin American Spanish/first voice), Edilú Martínez (Latin American Spanish/rest of the series)

Scratchansniff's ravishing assistant, the frequent subject of Yakko and Wakko's boyish affections. While she's not the TropeNamer for HelloNurse, she [[TropeCodifier gave the trope its current popularity]].
* TheAce: According to the "Hello Nurse" song, her list of accomplishments includes winning the Tony, Nobel Prize, and Pulitzer, obtaining several Ph.Ds, playing Chopin without rehearsing, singing opera at the Met, starring as the lead role in Theatre/KingLear, becoming the ambassador to China, and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking not smoking]].
* ActionGirl: In the comics she is a secret agent and show fight skills.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In the beginning of the show, and indeed in some of the early spin-off comics, she didn't have much of a personality and was mainly just there to be sexy -- and she had several moments then when she displayed definite traits of a LiteralMinded DumbBlonde. Eventually, however, she was developed a little more, to become Scratchansniff's extremely intelligent, HypercompetentSidekick, and her Dumb Blonde moments completely vanished.
* DudeMagnet: Has men lusting after her constantly, especially the Warner Brothers.
* DumbBlonde: In the early episodes she could occasionally come across as one, but as her characterization stabilized it was firmly averted; she's as smart as her bosses, emphasized at the end of ''Film/WakkosWish''.
* EveryoneLovesBlondes: A blonde woman and treated as a sex symbol in-universe.
* FrenchMaidOutfit: She wore this costume in an episode in order to teach the Warner siblings table manners. There really wasn't a reason other than HelloNurse.
* {{Gainaxing}}: She is sometimes animated with her breasts jiggling.
* HelloNurse: TropeNamer. Hello Nurse's appearance almost always prompts Wakko and Yakko into exclaiming "Hellooooooo, Nurse!", (one of the show's well-known lines) and jumping into her arms.
* HospitalHottie: Unsurprisingly (though she doesn't have a hospital to heat up).
* HypercompetentSidekick: To Scratchansniff.
* ImpossibleHourglassFigure: You see her picture on the trope page!
* LivingADoubleLife: In the comics, Hello Nurse was also a secret agent. She is an Agent of H.U.B.B.A., wears a white LeotardOfPower and fight villains. She has also an {{Archenemy}} in Nurse Doom, her EvilTwin with red hair.
* MsFanservice: One of the major examples in western animation. She is a sexy and voluptuous woman and the main source of {{Fanservice}} in the show.
* NewJobAsThePlotDemands: Like an actress, she is used in other episodes as needed.
* NoNameGiven: Subverted. Hello Nurse is actually her name.
* PhraseCatcher: "Hello, Nurse!" of course.
* ParodySue: At least in this [[ song]] about her.
* PimpedOutDress: In the episode [[ "King Yakko"]], Hello Nurse plays the prime minister of the kingdom, and she wears a magenta dress with [[PrettyInMink ermine trim]] and a blue cloak.
* SexySecretary: Her duties to Dr. Scratchensniff seem more secretarial than anything medical.
* SexyStewardess: In two shorts, one with the Warner Brothers and another during a cameo with Slappy Squirrel.
* ShesGotLegs: Lampshaded in the musical number "Hello Nurse".

[[folder:Thaddeus Plotz]]
->'''Voiced by''': Frank Welker (English), Takeshi Watabe (Japanese)
The CEO of Warner Bros. (in-universe, that is).
* CorruptCorporateExecutive: He's not actually ''corrupt,'' but his bad temper, tendency to assign blame at random and money-hungry ways keep him unsympathetic.
* HairTriggerTemper: Just about any of the Warners' antics will set him off.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Appears to hate the Warners, but enlists their help in times of need. He even hired a clown for Wakko's birthday (despite being absolutely terrified of clowns.) This was before he was aware of Wakko's own fear of clowns so it wasn't out of malice.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: He regretted ever making the Warners stars.
** The Warners' 65th anniversary special has two in-universe examples of big ones:
*** According to him, his biggest mistake was giving them their own cartoons.
*** According to Slappy, it was letting ''Wakko '''direct''''' one of said cartoons.
* TheNapoleon: Plotz is extremely short, with a short temper to match.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Not that he looks young, but the Warners' 65th anniversary special reveals that he was already head of the studio when they were created, which means he must be in his mid 80s at the very least, though he seems no older than 70.
* PunnyName: His surname is Yiddish-American slang meaning "to explode" or "to collapse."
* PointyHairedBoss
* TheScrooge: He even gets his own "Christmas Carol" episode.
* SelfFulfillingProphecy: In the episode "Taming of the Screwy," Mr. Plotz is holding a banquet for foreign investors, and said investors want to meet all of the workers at the Warner Bros. studio, including Yakko, Wakko, and Dot. Under his orders, Dr. Scratchansniff manages to convince the Warners to keep their lunacy under control so they can attend the banquet... only for Mr. Plotz to force them out of the banquet regardless because he doesn't trust them not to screw things up. Snubbed and insulted, the Warners return to the banquet and ruin it in their usual KarmicTrickster fashion. In a nutshell, if Mr. Plotz had just let them stay since they were behaving, the entire thing would have gone off without a hitch.
* SpoiledBrat: Definitely one as a child. And a BrattyHalfPint to boot.
* TheVonTropeFamily: As "Baron von Plotz" in ''Wakko's Wish''.
* ThrowTheDogABone: Though he was known for making bad business decisions and treating some of his employees like crap, Plotz was a step above the average corporate villain and occasionally would get a moment where he'd realize his own foolishness and regret it, thus prompting the [[KarmicTrickster Warners themselves]] to cut him a break and even give him some small reward.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Has a fear of clowns.

!!!Minor Supporting and {{Recurring Character}}s

[[folder:Mr. Director]]
->'''Voiced by''': Paul Rugg
A crazy director who looks, sounds, and behaves like a young Creator/JerryLewis.
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: His craziness and eccentricity is so over the top that even the ''Warners themselves'' find him insane.
* MoodSwinger: He alternates between treating comedy as SeriousBusiness and being a TalkativeLoon.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: He's based on Jerry Lewis.
* OhGodWithTheVerbing: He speaks like this.
* PsychopathicManchild: When in TalkativeLoon mode, he's a shrill, barely coherent idiot.
* SuddenlyFluentInGibberish: Freunleven!
* TakeThat: They lampoon Lewis' over-the-top antics in his comedy films, and they also make a humorous reference to his unreleased drama film ''Film/TheDayTheClownCried'', about a clown that ends up in a Nazi concentration camp (a shining example of one of the jokes on this shown that [[ParentalBonus children normally wouldn't get]]).
* YouSayTomato: Mr. Director discusses this trope.
-->Take the word 'animal'. Transpose the letters 'n' and 'm' and you get 'aminal'. That, in a nutshell, is comedy.

[[folder:Ms. Flamiel]]
->'''Voiced by''': Tress [=MacNeille=]
A schoolteacher who sometimes tries to educate the Warners, only for them to frustrate her in the process.
* AsideGlance: Once or twice.
* BreakTheHaughty: Her certainty that she can shatter the Warners' wills and make them good little children turns out to be... a little optimistic.
* SternTeacher: Mr. Plotz hired her because she's a stern, abrasive disciplinarian whom he thinks will keep the Warners in line. Still, she's a fairly reasonable example, who genuinely wants to educate the Warners, doesn't deliberately make things hard for them, and would probably be less sour if her students didn't always torment her with their usual antics.
* VictoriasSecretCompartment: She apparently keeps her marker for giving people F's in her blouse. Quoth Yakko; "Ooh, what else you got in there?"

[[folder:Baloney the Dinosaur]]
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/JeffBennett
A sappy orange and light blue dinosaur who is an obvious pastiche of [[Series/BarneyAndFriends Barney]]. One of the few things the Warners are afraid of.
* AnvilOnHead: The Warners keep dropping anvils on his head in the episode "Baloney and Kids," but it turns out even ''this'' won't stop him.
* BerserkButton: As shown in his appearance on ''WesternAnimation/PinkyElmyraAndTheBrain'', he '''hates''' cheating.
* CaptainErsatz: An obvious parody of Barney the Dinosaur.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: His "Imagine Song."
* TheDitz: He's not too bright.
* ImplacableMan: To the Warners' terror. '''Nothing''' can make him stop. Nothing! Not even falling anvils!
* IronButtmonkey: He keeps coming back from all the abuse the Warners heap on him.
* TakeThat: He's obviously a jab at Barney the Dinosaur.
--> '''Wakko''': Are we being punished?
--> '''Yakko & Dot''': ''Yes.''
* TooSpicyForYogSothoth: Took [[AnvilOnHead three anvils to the head]] and still kept moving.
* TyrannosaurusRex: Subversion of the usual portrayal.

[[folder:Francis "Pip" Pumphandle]]
->'''Voiced by''': Ben Stein
* InkSuitActor: Pip Pumphandle is based directly off his voice actor Ben Stein.
* LaserGuidedKarma: Pip turns the usual Warner Brothers (and Sister) formula on its head, delivering the same exasperation they had dispensed to so many others.
* StockholmSyndrome: After he leaves, the Warners find themselves missing him and want to hear another one of his stories.
* TheCatCameBack: The Warners find him impossible to get rid of...until he actually leaves and they decide they miss him.
* TheThingThatWouldNotLeave: When the Warners encounter him at a Hollywood party, he starts relating a long, rambling, essentially pointless story about how he once encountered [[Series/ThePriceIsRight Bob Barker]] eating a bologna and cheese ball sandwich, and he doesn't leave the Warners alone until he finishes (even practicing OffscreenTeleportation a la [[Creator/TexAvery Droopy Dog]]), boring them to tears.

[[folder:Dot's Pet]]
A monstrous creature who is always kept inside a small, white box. The creature's appearance is inconsistent and its color varied, but its most common forms are a large bull-like creature, a plant parodying ''Film/TheLittleShopOfHorrors'', and a hairy form with enormous teeth. In one case, Mr. Director was her pet.
* FluffyTheTerrible: Often the case.

!!!{{One Shot Character}}s

[[folder:Professor Otto von Schnitzelbuskrankengescheitmeier]]
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/JimCummings
A fat, jolly German guy who taught the Warners the International Friendship Song.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's ordinarily a nice guy, but when the Warners spend the entire last segment of the Friendship Song stripping him of his clothes and humiliating him he finally snaps at the end and kicks the three of them out of his village.
* BigFun: He's overweight and tries to sing a song with the Warners about friendship.
* {{Cameo}}: In ''Film/WakkosWish''.
* DubNameChange: In the German dub his name is Aloysius.
* OverlyLongName: His surname is pretty long.

[[folder:Sodarn Hinsane]]
->'''Voiced by''': Frank Welker

A LawyerFriendlyCameo of UsefulNotes/SaddamHussein who appears as the antagonist of "Baghdad Cafe", a {{crossover}} episode starring Yakko, Wakko, and Slappy (the latter in place of Dot).
* AssholeVictim: Apparently, he was to host the Warner Brothers (and Sister) ''while'' his country is being curb-stomped by an enemy army.
* DubNameChange: Inverted in the Venezuelan Spanish dub: He was "renamed" as "Saddam Hussein", albeit his last name is pronounced more or less the same way as it should be pronounced in Arabic, rather than Spanish or English.
* EarlyBirdCameo: He appears being sent to hell in "Hot, Bothered, and Bedeviled" before his first formal appearance.
* TheNapoleon: He's a world leader who is short in stature.
* PunnyName: His name sounds like "so darn insane".

[[folder:Wally Llama]]
->'''Voiced by''': Richard Libertini
* DisproportionateRetribution: The Warners hound him incessantly to answer their Very, Very, Very, Very Important Question. He just wants an afternoon off to watch ''Baywatch!!''
* LaughingMad: He starts giggling like a lunatic when it turns out he doesn't know the answer to the Warners' question.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: He's a parody of the Dalai Lama.

[[folder:Mr. Gobble]]
Yakko, Wakko, and Dot's pet turkey who runs and dances to the tune of ''TurkeyInTheStraw''.
* AmplifiedAnimalAptitude: Pretty clever for a turkey, but he's not a talking animal.
* OffscreenTeleportation: He can even appear inside other peoples' hats without being detected.

[[folder:Howie Tern]]
->'''Voiced by''': Maurice [=LaMarche=]
* BarefootCartoonAnimal: He has no shoes.
* InformedSpecies: He is supposed to be a tern, but he looks far more like a crane or stork.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Of Creator/HowardStern
* SpeciesSurname: Possibly subverted, since he looks more like a crane or stork than a tern.

[[folder:The Survey Ladies]]
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/KathSoucie and Deanna Oliver

Two women who pester Yakko, Wakko, and Dot with a survey involving George Wendt and Beans.
* BasedOnATrueStory: A retrospective reveals that the annoying survey ladies were based on a real-life encounter that some of the writing staff had not far from the studio.
* TheCatCameBack: They're everywhere in the mall. ''Everywhere.''
--> '''Survey Lady #2''': We're persistent!
--> '''Yakko''': [[YouKeepUsingThatWord Try using a better deodorant]].

[[folder:Fermin Flaxseed]]
->'''Voiced by''': Jeff Bennett
* AlliterativeName: First and last name both begin with F.
* BaldOfEvil: Covered by a highly unconvincing hairpiece.
--> '''Dot''' ''(shyly offering it back):'' You dropped your hair.
* FullyDressedCartoonAnimal: He has a suit and even wears shoes.
* InexplicablyTailless: He appears to be some kind of weasel, but he has no tail.
* {{Jerkass}}: His first scene depicts him laughing off a nun's request that he donate to her charity and literally kicking her out of his store.
* LaserGuidedKarma: He is rewarded for his jerkish behavior by having the Warners torment him and make a mess of his store, getting the crap beaten out of him by a bunch of football players, and turned into a chocolate bunny.

[[folder:Dan Anchorman]]
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/PhilHartman

A conceited news anchorman for the fictitious ''Newstime Live'' programme who refused to pay Yakko, Wakko, and Dot for a sandwich he had ordered.
* {{Jerkass}}: To ensure that the audience doesn't feel sorry for him suffering the Warners' retribution towards him denying them a tip, his first scene has him angrily fire his makeup assistant for being a smidgen late and yelling at the rest of the news studio that they are useless.
* JerkassHasAPoint: Yes, he is incredibly conceited and abrasive, but if a delivery person ''ate the sandwich you ordered right in front of you and then demanded a tip'', wouldn't you be pissed too? The Warners were lucky he didn't call the shop to complain!
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Of Sam Donaldson.

[[folder:Ivan Bloski]]
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/GeorgeDzundza

A {{Jerkass}} accountant who finds himself sharing an airplane with the Warners and becomes their "Special Friend." He is a parody of the notorious stock trader Ivan Boesky, who was convicted in a 1987 insider trading scandal.
* {{Jerkass}}: He's a loud-mouthed asshole, and his entire short goes to great lengths to show this. Immediately after threatening to buy the airline just so he can fire the lady who accidentally got him bumped down to coach from first class, he literally throws a man with a broken leg out of his way, ordering him to "quit faking it and get a job," and then forces his way onto the plane, orders the stewardess to throw everyone in coach off the plane just so he can have privacy, and screams in the stewardess' face to get him 14 bags of peanuts. Needless to say, when Yakko, Wakko, and Dot appear and name him their "Special Friend," he deserves every minute of torture they give him.

[[folder:Duanne Sewer]]
->'''Voiced by''': Tress [=MacNeille=]

A rival newsreader of the fictitious ''Newstime Live'' program and anchorwoman in UsefulNotes/WashingtonDC who appears in the episode "Broadcast Nuisance".
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Of Diane Sawyer

[[folder:Wolf Spritzer]]
->'''Voiced by''': Rob Paulsen

A newsreporter for the fictitious ''Newstime Live'' program who appears in "Broadcast Nuisance".
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Of Wolf Blitzer

->'''Voiced by''': Jess Harnell

An archetypically portrayed Grim Reaper, with black robe, skeletal appearance, and scythe who speaks with a Swedish accent.
* ExactWords: He tricks Yakko and Dot into betting their lives away.
* FateWorseThanDeath: (With apologies for the pun.) The Warners demand to spend the rest of eternity with him, adopt him as their father figure, and call him 'Daddoo.' He gets so fed up with it that he declares them all to be alive and informs them that it will be a long time before he lets them back in his domain again.

->'''Voiced by''': Creator/RonPerlman
* ButtMonkey: Probably the only reason ''Hot, Bothered and Bedeviled'' was green-lighted. Even for a Yakko/Wakko/Dot villain he comes off as a complete chump.
* GetOut: Eventually gives up on the idea of subjecting the Warners to an eternity in the lake of fire, in favor of ''never'' having to see them again.
* {{Satan}}: The rather campy, traditional Big Red Guy with a Fork.
--> '''Yakko''': Does George Hamilton know your tan is better than his?

[[folder:Calhoun Q. Capybara and Lew-Lew the Ring-Tailed Lemur]]
->Calhoun Capybara voiced by: Jim Cummings
->Lew-Lew voiced by: Jess Harnell
* {{Expy}}: Of WesternAnimation/YogiBear and Boo-boo.
* InformedSpecies: Calhoun looks somewhat like a bear, while Lew-Lew resembles a red panda or a raccoon.

[[folder:The Tiger Prince]]
* MisplacedWildlife: He and his parents are tigers that live in Africa.
* TakeThat: His segment serves solely as a rather mean-spirited dig towards ''Disney/TheLionKing'', since Yakko appears in the role of Rafiki and drops the cub after raising him to the sky, faux-innocently remarking that he thought cats always landed on their feet.

!!Slappy and Skippy Squirrel
!!!Main and Major Supporting Characters

[[folder:Slappy Squirrel]]
->'''Voiced by''': Sherri Stoner (English), Creator/HisakoKyoda (Japanese), Isabel Vara (Latin American Spanish)

A cranky squirrel who was once a ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' star (in-universe, that is).
* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: Slappy only wears a hat (and also a scarf in Wakko's Wish).
* AlliterativeName: '''S'''lappy '''S'''quirrel
* AlterKocker: Her accent has traces of this. Also, see below.
* AmbiguouslyJewish:
-->'''Skippy''': Could you tell me why there's a bird living on my head?\\
'''Slappy''': A bird? I thought that was a new yarmulke.
* {{Catchphrase}}: "Now that's comedy!"
* ChasteToons: She lives with her young nephew, Skippy. How he came to live with her is never explained; this is probably intentional, considering the number of other cartoon tropes the show satirized.
* ConMan: Female example.
-->'''Slappy''': Have I ever lied to you?\\
'''Skippy''': You said Keno was legal in Burbank; you said Magilla Gorilla was a woman; you said -\\
'''Slappy''': Awright, awright, enough already.
* CoolAunt: A loving aunt for Skippy and a CoolOldLady.
* CoolOldLady: She's a peach! Just don't get on her ''list.''
* DeadpanSnarker: Just as blunt and snarky as she is cranky.
* DisproportionateRetribution: She doesn't need a ''reason'' to unleash an episode's worth of cartoon violence on someone, so much as she needs an ''excuse.'' One of the most notorious cases, however, would be in "I Got Yer Can", where she tormented Candie Chipmunk just for lecturing her on dumping her trash in someone else's trash can.
* DrivesLikeCrazy: ''Little Old Slappy from Pasadena'' shows this [[UpToEleven to the Nth degree]], with Slappy driving a souped-up Dodge Viper to Jan and Dean's ''Little Old Lady from Pasadena''. [[RealityEnsues It results in her being surrounded by police ready to arrest her for speeding and being a public nuisance]].
* {{Expy}}: [[WordOfGod Reportedly]], the creators wanted to use the original ScrewySquirrel for the role, but couldn't get the rights, so they changed his name and gave him a GenderFlip to disguise him.
* GenreSavvy: By her own admission, she's seen and done every trick in the book.
* GrumpyBear: This is lampshaded in the Slappy Squirrel Theme.
* HatesTheJobLovesTheLimelight
* IWasQuiteALooker: And she was too, as evidenced by her [[ Buttermilk ad]], which was based off of a early design for [[MsFanservice Minerva Mink]].
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Don't let her crankiness fool you, she DOES have a soft side (it just takes a bit of digging to find it).
* MamaBear: Slappy gets very pissed if you harm Skippy.
* MediumAwareness: Slappy beats the Warners here:
-->'''Skippy''': But that was in a cartoon! [[ThisIsReality This is real life!]]\\
'''Slappy''': *AsideGlance* Don't tell him, he might crack.
* NeverMessWithGranny: A very extreme example. She knows where you live, and she has a rocket launcher.
--> '''Slappy''': Now Skippy: what I want you to learn from this is that if you wanna go on live TV and shred someone's career, you have that right. But if you do that, don't go listin' your home address in the phone book.
* NiceHat: Her green hat.
* ParentalBonus: A lot of her subtle jokes about menopause, which of course always go right over Skippy's ([[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids and the target audience's]]) head.
* PsychoForHire: Other characters have occasionally recruited her to cause mayhem on a specific target. The Warners hired her to get rid of their ''Sound Of Music''-inspired nanny, and God Himself tasked Slappy with guarding the Tree of Knowledge in the Garden of Eden so the serpent couldn't tempt Adam and Eve.
* PublicDomainSoundtrack: Slappy's {{Leitmotif}} is Dvorak's "Humoresque".
* RetiredBadass: The premise behind her segments is that she's a veteran from TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation, and as a result, is wise to the tricks that cartoon villains pull. (Most of her enemies are from that era too, and bother her out of an obsession for revenge, but they aren't nearly as smart.)
* RodentsOfUnusualSize: She's a squirrel who is about the same height as a short human.
* ScrewPolitenessImASenior: She is sort of a G-rated version of this.
* ScrewySquirrel: WordOfGod has it that she's meant to be an {{Expy}} of the original [[TropeNamer Screwy Squirrel]] character, only GenderFlipped.
* SoProudOfYou: In ''Bully For Skippy'', she wipes away a tear of joy when Skippy announces his desire to get revenge on Duke the bully by shouting "let's get ready to rumble!"
* SpeciesSurname: She is a squirrel.
* TheUnfettered: Exploited by the Warners in the episode "The Sound of Warners"; since their [[EveryoneHasStandards moral code]] prevented them from fighting back against the nanny because she wasn't actually trying to hurt them, merely being annoying, they hired Slappy, who has no such restraints, to get rid of her for them.
* WhiteDwarfStarlet: She is an inversion of this. The gag behind Slappy isn't really that she's a fallen starlet seeking to regain her fame — it's that she's a retired slapstick comedy star whose old antagonists don't seem to have let go as well as she has, only now, she's not only smarter than her opponents, she's old, grumpy, sarcastic and arthritic, so not only is great harm befalling her geriatric rivals, it's gotten easier with practice and she enjoys it more.
* YouRemindMeOfX: One of her running gags.
--> ''You remind me of a very young Scrappy-Doo.''
--> ''You remind me of a bad accident at Benihana.''

[[folder:Skippy Squirrel]]
->'''Voiced by''': Nathan Ruegger (English), Creator/MayumiTanaka (Japanese), Ivette Harting (Latin American Spanish)

Slappy's nephew who looks up to her.
* AlliterativeName: '''S'''kippy '''S'''quirrel
* BadassAdorable: Considering that he knows martial arts.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Skippy is much more forgiving than Slappy, but if you push him far enough you'll learn that he's inherited his aunt's talents for slapstick revenge. Just ask Duke, the title character of ''Bully For Skippy''...
* CatchPhrase: Prone to saying "Speeeeeeew!", usually to react to statements that gross him out.
* CharacterDevelopment: In early episodes he's a wide-eyed {{Genre Blind}} innocent, watching his aunt's antics in amazement, [[InelegantBlubbering bawling inconsolably]] over the death of [[Disney/{{Bambi}} Bumbie's mom]], and generally being Slappy's cute little {{Foil}}. As the series goes on, he inherits much more of his aunt's {{Genre Savvy}} and {{Deadpan Snarker}} tendencies and frequently serves as her {{Hypercompetent Sidekick}}. His [[VocalEvolution gradually deepening voice]] (see below) highlights the shift.
* CheerfulChild: He is Slappy's sweet, cheerful, and adorable nephew.
* DeadpanSnarker: Not to the extent that Slappy takes it, but he still gets in quite a few sarcasms as the show moves on.
* HollywoodToneDeaf: His voice actor couldn't keep in tune during the singing segments of 'Wakko's Wish'. Lampshaded by Slappy saying that it was time for her nephew to get singing lessons.
* LikeFatherLikeSon: In ''Bully For Skippy'', Skippy shows that he's learned a few things from his aunt's old cartoons.
* {{Nephewism}}: He does not appear to have any parents, and lives with his Aunt Slappy. According to Slappy's creator and voice actress, Skippy's folks are on sabbatical.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: A cute squirrel.
* RodentsOfUnusualSize: He's the size of a human child.
* SpeciesSurname: He's a squirrel.
* VocalEvolution: Nathan Ruegger's voice had to be pitched up in later episodes because he was getting too old for the part. It's particularly obvious in ''Film/WakkosWish''.

[[folder:Walter Wolf, Sid the Squid, and Beanie the Brain-Dead Bison]]
->'''Voiced by''': Frank Welker (Walter Wolf, first appearance), Jess Harnell (Walter Wolf, later appearances), Jackie Burns (Sid the Squid), Avery Schreiber (Beanie the Brain-Dead Bison)

Three of Slappy's old nemesises from her cartoons, who continually plot revenge on her, but still never succeed at doing her in.
!!Tropes that apply to two or all three of them:
* AlliterativeName: All their names are alliterations.
* ButtMonkey: They're Slappy's RoguesGallery. They pretty much exist to take abuse. Not that they don't invite it upon themselves...
* EvilOldFolks: They're all just as old, if not older, than Slappy. When they have an EvilLaugh, they finish by coughing.
* PaperThinDisguise: As Slappy always says, "Now this is just sad". Half the time Skippy is the one to recognize them first, and he's used to seeing them undisguised and young in his aunt's old cartoons.
* RunTheGauntlet: In most cartoons, they all attack Slappy one after another. Beanie always goes first, then Sid, and finally Walter. Naturally, Slappy doesn't have much trouble with them.
* SpeciesSurname: Their surnames also happen to be the kinds of animals they are.

!!Tropes that apply to Walter Wolf:
* AlterKocker: He sounds like an elderly Jewish man.
* ArchEnemy: According to Skippy, he's Slappy's worst enemy.
* AmbiguouslyJewish
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: He wears overalls.
* {{Jerkass}}: He's always out to ruin Slappy's life, and even once faked his own death to try and turn everyone against her.

!!Tropes that apply to Sid the Squid:
* EverythingsSquishierWithCephalopods: He's a squid.

!!Tropes that apply to Beanie:
* TheDitz: As his moniker suggests, he's a downright moron.
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: He wears shoes and a beanie, but nothing else.
* PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad: {{Parodied}}; Beanie is occasionally referred to with the more PC term "the Cerebreally-Challenged Bison". Slappy, being who she is, sticks with "Brain-Dead".

!!!Minor Supporting, {{Recurring| Character}}, and {{One Shot Character}}s

[[folder:Candie Chipmunk]]
->'''Voiced by''': Gail Matthius
* AlliterativeName: Her given name and surname both begin with C.
* ButtMonkey: She's put through hell by Slappy just for lecturing Slappy on dumping a can in her trash can instead of her own.
* GoodIsNotNice: She's a neat freak and rather conceited.
* NeatFreak: She won't even let Slappy throw away a can in her recycle bin.
* SanitySlippage: After Slappy torments her, she becomes psychotic and lashes out on a pair of nuns and Santa Claus under the mistaken belief that they are Slappy and Skippy in disguise continuing their pranks to leave her stuck with Slappy's empty soda can.
** Thought it should be noted that her SanitySlippage wouldn't have been as severe as it was if not for her SuperOCD.
** It's also a good example of a ''Main/ParanoiaGambit''
* SpeciesSurname: She is a chipmunk and her last name is Chipmunk.

[[folder:Stinkbomb D. Bassett]]
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/JonathanWinters
* ChasteToons: {{Averted}}. He has a grandson.
* FurIsClothing: After his fur is eaten by termites he puts on a new fur suit. Which makes little sense seeing as he pointed out that he'd stopped itching.
* OldDog: He is a dog who is apparently old enough to be a grandfather.
* SpeciesSurname: He is a Bassett hound named Bassett.

[[folder:Bumpo Bassett]]
->'''Voiced by''': Luke Ruegger
* AlliterativeName: His first and last names both begin with B.

[[folder:Lene Hisskill and Codger Eggbert]]
-> Voiced by: Maurice [=LaMarche=] (Hisskill), Chuck [=McCann=] (Eggbert)
* ButtMonkey: Slappy subjects them to a lot of slapstick injuries in retaliation to them panning her cartoons during a review of a Laserdisc collection of Looney Tunes shorts.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: They are parodies of Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert.

->'''Voiced by''': Creator/CoreyBurton

The squirrel who bullied Skippy in "Bully for Skippy".
* DefeatMeansFriendship: After Skippy and Slappy clobber him, he turns a new leaf and helps them get even with Skippy's guidance counselor and the chairman of the FTA.
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: All he wears is a leather jacket.
* SimpletonVoice: He has a deep, dumb-sounding voice.
* TopHeavyGuy: His upper body is huge when compared to his legs.

[[folder:Daniel Boone]]
->'''Voiced by''': Jim Cummings

The self-proclaimed 'Best frontiersman that ever lived'. He appears in "Frontier Slappy" and tries to cut down Slappy's hometree to make a front door out of it.
* HistoricalVillainUpgrade: Played for comedy.
* MightyLumberjack: Subverted, as he is easily outwitted by a squirrel.
* NoFourthWall: He has a chorus singing about his attempts to cut down Slappy's tree. Sometimes the chorus starts making a fool of him, resulting in him shouting at them to shut up.

!!!Main and Major Supporting Characters

[[folder:The Goodfeathers]]
->Voiced in English by: Maurice [=LaMarche=] (Squit), John Mariano (Bobby), Chick Vennera (Pesto)
->Voiced in Japanese by: Creator/MasashiEbara (Squit), Creator/AkioOhtsuka (Bobby), Minoru Inaba (Pesto)
->Voiced in Latin American Spanish by: Orlando Noguera (Squit), Daniel Jimenez (Bobby), Rafael Monsalve (Pesto)
Goodfeathers are an Italian American trio of pigeons: Squit (gray), Bobby (turquoise), and Pesto (lavender), influenced by Ray Liotta, Robert De Niro, and Joe Pesci's characters in ''Goodfellas''.
!!Tropes that apply to two or all three of them:

* AnthropomorphicZigZag: They are usually Talking Animals, but in "Star Warners" and a few other episodes, they are given more Funny Animal type roles.
* ButtMonkey: All of them suffer misfortunes while trying to accomplish their goals, though Squit gets the most of it.
* FeatherFingers: Their wing feathers act like fingers.
* FreudianTrio:
** Superego: Bobby -- Laid back & easy-going.
** Id: Pesto -- [[HairTriggerTemper Hot-headed & short-tempered]].
** Ego: Squit -- Young & reasonable.
* NiceMeanAndInbetween: Squit (nice), Pesto (mean), Bobby (inbetween)
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: They are parodies of Creator/RobertDeNiro, Creator/JoePesci, and Ray Liotta. Mostly of their role in ''Film/{{Goodfellas}}'', but can also take on aspects of other characters played by those actors (such as Bobby in a parody of Film/RagingBull).
* ToothyBird: All three have big toothy grins.
* VitriolicBestBuds: Mostly Squit and Pesto, usually due to Pesto's bad temper.

!!Tropes that apply to Bobby:
* BewareTheQuietOnes: He's the most stoic of the group and is probably the most level-headed. That being said, [[HairTriggerTemper Pesto]] is actually scared of him when he gets serious. Perhaps best shown in "Raging Bird". [[CurbStompBattle He's on the verge of losing a boxing match against Prettyboy Robin]] but the moment he starts flirting with his girlfriend, he ''breaks'' him with a single punch.
* TheLeader: Of the Goodfeather pigeons.
* OnlySaneMan: When he's not laughing at Pesto, he tends to be the one to keep him and Squit from destroying each other.
* ParodyNames: He's based on Creator/RobertDeNiro.
* TranslatorBuddy: He translates what the Godpigeon says.

!!Tropes that apply to Pesto:
* BerserkButton: More like [[ExaggeratedTrope Berserk Keyboard]]. He gets furious every time Squit tries to compliment him or point out his problems, which isn't helped by Pesto misinterpretating what Squit meant by his statement and Squit not doing a good job at clarifying his statements.
* CatchPhrase: "''THAT'S IT!''"
* {{Expy}}: Of [[Film/GoodFellas Tommy [=DeVito=]]] and Joe Pesci in general.
* HairTriggerTemper: [[Creator/JoePesci For obvious reasons.]]
* {{Jerkass}}: He has a violent temper and would always beat Squit up.
* MismatchedEyes: He has a pink right eye and light green left eye.
* ParodyNames: Two letters away from [[Creator/JoePesci Pesci]].
* PintsizedPowerhouse: The smallest of the Goodfeathers, but also the most aggressive. In "Mighty Wakko at Bat", he was in the midst of beating up the umpire, a grown man.
* RantInducingSlight: Frequently. Usually when Squit [[ tries]] to [[ComplimentBackfire compliment]] him.

!!Tropes that apply to Squit:
* ButtMonkey: Even Bobby laughs when Pesto beats him up.
* CatchPhrase: "As far back as I can remember...", which starts every episode.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: He might not be as shifty and experienced as the other Goodfeathers, but he's still pretty capable.
* DoggedNiceGuy: He once fell for a sparrow named Carloota, only to discover she already had a boyfriend.
* InterspeciesRomance: With Carloota the sparrow in "West Side Pigeons", which sadly did not last for this very reason. Soon after, he falls in love with a bluejay despite swearing off girls.
* NaiveNewcomer: He becomes a member of the birds in "Goodfeathers:The Beginning".
* ToothyBird: The toothiest of the three.

[[folder:Solley (a.k.a. The Godpigeon)]]
-> Voiced by: Maurice [=LaMarche=] (English), Framk Maneiro (Latin American Spanish)
The Don of the Goodfeathers enterprise. Typically enters a scene, dispenses some vaguely wise-sounding gibberish, chuckles a little and leaves. Held in very high regard by the other birds.
* TheAce: Usually able to do in a few seconds what the goodfeathers spent an entire short attempting.
* BigEater: The first ''Goodfeathers'' short even has him swallow a bagel whole.
* TheDon: Solley the Godpigeon is a parody. He's modeled after Vito Corleone.
* EyesAlwaysShut: His eyes are always closed.
* IntelligibleUnintelligible: Bobby's the only one who knows what he's saying.
* MumblingBrando: A given, considering he's a Don Corleone spoof.
* NightmareFace: The few times he ''does'' open his eyes.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Marlon Brando again.
* TheUnintelligible: Speaks in elderly-sounding raspy mumble.
* ToothyBird: Like the goodfeathers, we can see his teeth.

[[folder:The Girlfeathers, Sasha, Kiki, and Lana]]
->'''Voiced by''': Tress [=MacNeille=] (Sasha and Kiki), Gail Matthius (Lana)
Sasha (red) is Squit's girlfriend and Pesto's sister, Kiki (green) is Pesto's girlfriend, and Lana (purple) is Bobby's girlfriend.
* AlwaysABiggerFish: Turns out that Sasha pushes her brother Pesto around effortlessly.
--> '''Pesto''': Are you sayin' that ''I'' am ''adorable?!''
--> '''Sasha''' ''(bopping him on the head)''': Don't ''start'' with that, Pesto!
* BrainlessBeauty: Kiki
* DistaffCounterpart: Of the Goodfeathers.
* HairTriggerTemper: Sasha, just like her brother.
* LoveInterest: To the Goodfeathers.
%%* TertiarySexualCharacteristics

!!!Minor Supporting, {{Recurring| Character}}, and {{One Shot Character}}s

[[folder:Steven Seagull]]
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/DavidKaufman

Pesto and Sasha's stepfather.
* AlliterativeName: His first and last names both begin with S.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Of Steven Seagal
* SpeciesSurname: He's a seagull named Seagull.

->'''Voiced by''': Ivy Austin
* InterspeciesRomance: With Squit the pigeon
* PaleFemalesDarkMales: {{Inverted}} since she has darker colored feathers than the male sparrows.
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: She has eyelashes and a bow in her hair.

->'''Voiced by''': Maurice [=LaMarche=]
* AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal: He wears a police officer's cap.
* CatsAreMean: Sort of. He's a cat and he tries to eat the Goodfeathers, but he's not really such a bad guy.
* FatBastard: Sort of. He's overweight and he tries to eat the Goodfeathers, but it's a bit of a stretch to consider him a bad guy.
* FatCat: He's an overweight feline.
* NiceHat: He wears a police hat.
* OfficerOHara: He's portrayed as being like a cop and he speaks in an Irish accent.

!!Rita and Runt
[[folder:The Main Duo]]
A stray cat and dog trying to find a home for themselves.
!!Tropes that apply to both:
* AnimalTalk: Mostly they aren't shown to be able to talk to humans. It [[DependingOnTheWriter depends on the story]] whether they understand what humans say to them or not, though as a rule Rita is more likely to at least get the general gist of it.
* ButtMonkey: Both of them can fall into this in their segments.
* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: The both of them disappeared as series regulars after Season 2, to the point that a parody of the ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' intro showed [[FaceOnAMilkCarton a picture of them on a milk carton]]. They eventually did come BackForTheFinale and ''Film/WakkosWish''. [[note]] The behind the scenes reason is that it was too expensive to have Bernadette Peters make regular appearances. [[/note]]
* FemaleFelineMaleMutt: The trope pic. However, Runt doesn't realize Rita isn't a dog no matter how many people (Rita included) he hears describing her as a cat.
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Runt, a BigFriendlyDog, and Rita, a small cat, are a non-romantic example.
* LittleGuyBigBuddy: They have a similar big dog/little cat relationship, although in this case the little one is sophisticated and the big one is dumb (mistaking the cat for another dog).
* LocalReference: When Rita and Runt go to Poland in "Puttin on the Blitz", Rita sings that it doesn't look like Burbank, more like Van Nuys. (Both are cities in Los Angeles. You can guess which one has higher property values).
* MusicalEpisode: Rita and Runt have at least one song per short.
* OddFriendship: An independent and aloof female cat and a big dumb dog.
* PlatonicLifePartners: A pair of homeless cat and dog who are always seen together and despite having a desire to find a nice permanent new home, the two manage to live quite comfortably by offering each other a close unbreakable friendship in defending one another for protection and giving moral support

->'''Voiced by''': Creator/BernadettePeters (English), Creator/EmiShinohara (Japanese), Elena Prieto (Latin American Spanish)
* AnthropomorphicZigZag: Rita is a CivilizedAnimal cat with a lot of TalkingAnimal moments would switch between [[FourLegsGoodTwoLegsBetter walking on two legs and walking on four legs]]. In a few {{cameo}}s and possibly in part of "Kiki's Kitten", she is shown as a FunnyAnimal, and in a {{cameo}} in "The Return of The Great Wakkorotti," she is even [[FullyDressedCartoonAnimal fully-dressed]].
* CatsAreSnarkers: Rita is very sarcastic, especially with Runt.
* CatsAreSuperior: Rita is more of a sympathetic nature, as despite her arrogance and selfishness, most of her misfortunes have been examples of unfair and unequal treatment.
* CatUpATree: In "Up A Tree".
* EarNotch: Has a notch in one of her ears.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Blink and you'll miss it: In the "Up A Tree" segment, during Rita's [[MusicalEpisode first]] musical number, she goes into a very minor DisneyAcidSequence about the advantages of Chicago as they appear onscreen. One of them is the Sears Tower, which she stands on. Afterwards, she immediately jumps off, and if you look closely at the expression on her face, you can tell that she's clearly acrophobic. Guess what happens later.
* GreenEyes
* IAmSong: "I'm Nobody's Mama" and "It's Always the Same Thing With Cats," among others.
* IWantSong: Often when she sings a song, it's about how much she wants a home or thinks she's found one.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: She's aloof, sarcastic, arrogant, and pretends to care only about herself, but Runt knows that inside she's "definitely sweet." In the war episode "Puttin' On the Blitz," she's disgusted when she thinks a man has abandoned his kid daughter (he was really protecting her because the Nazis were after him), goes on to protect that girl like a {{Mama Bear}}, and in the same episode [[spoiler: she gives up the chance for a home with good owners to be with Runt.]]
* NoSenseOfDirection: Rita has all kinds of glamorous places she wants to go, but no idea how to get there. Trying to get to Sonny Bono's house lands her and Runt in Egypt. Trying to go to Florida gets them to Alaska. Trying to go to Monterey puts them on a farm in the mid-west.
* SlapstickKnowsNoGender: Notably in the "Rita and Runt" intro, Rita is the one who's on the receiving end of slapstick, not Runt.
* {{Tsundere}}: Type A. Doubles as a {{Sugar and Ice Personality}}.

->'''Voiced by''': Creator/FrankWelker (English), KozoShioya (Japanese), Ricardo Mirabal (Latin American Spanish)
* {{Adorkable}}: Not nerdy but he is quite the silly goofball.
* AllLovingHero: Hatred of cats aside, he's by far one of the nicest characters in the entire show.
* BerserkButton: Mentioning cats to Runt, which leads us to DogsAreDumb below.
* BigFriendlyDog: Bigger and friendlier than his cat friend, Rita.
* TheDitz: Most of the time he's clueless, but he will occasionally subvert the trope and detect danger before Rita.
* DogsAreDumb: Runt hates cats. The only reason why Rita is the exception is because he thinks she's a dog: "Rita's a good dog. Definitely, definitely a good dog."
* HeroicDog: Not shown nearly as much as Buttons, partly because Rita is much more capable of taking care of herself, plus Runt is sometimes oblivious to the possible danger. But if he knows Rita's in trouble, he'll be there for her, guaranteed.
* KindheartedSimpleton: He's as sweet as he is dim.
* NiceGuy: One of the sweetest.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Runt's voice and quirky speech patterns are a takeoff of Dustin "{{Rain Man}}" Hoffman.
* SimpletonVoice: The same voice of Ralph the Guard who is a simpleton as well.
* TooDumbToFool: In one instance, Runt saved his oblivious feline friend from becoming an Egyptian ritual sacrifice. Still, in Rita's defense, she was probably caught completely off-guard because she knew that [[ArtisticLicenseHistory Ancient Egyptians aren't supposed to do that]].
* VerbalTic: He definitely, definitely has one. Definitely.

!!Mindy and Buttons
->'''Voiced by''': Creator/NancyCartwright (English), Creator/SatomiKoorogi (Japanese), Elena Prieto (Latin American Spanish)
A send up of ''Series/{{Lassie}}''. Mindy Sadlier is a toddler who constantly wanders off into dangerous situations prompting her dog, Buttons, to keep her out of it at the expense of his safety.
!!Tropes that apply to Mindy:
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: She's very easily distracted by the things she sees.
* {{Catchphrase}}: "Okay, I love you, bye-bye."
* ChasingAButterfly: She tends to follow any cute creature she spots.
* CheerfulChild: Since she's unaware of the dangers she keeps getting into, she's constantly cheery.
* ConstantlyCurious: Mindy constantly asks questions to people much to their annoyance.
* CuteButCacophonic: Especially her yelling "Buttons! Oh, Buttons!" in the Mindy and Buttons intro.
* TheCutie: Cute and innocent like a toddler.
* DamselInDistress: She always gets herself into dangerous situations, while her dog Buttons tries to rescue her or keep her out of trouble.
* TheFool: Her blithe wanderings into dangerous situations can be explained simply by the fact that she's just a toddler and thus doesn't know better. That said, while Buttons' direct involvement is the most frequent effort keeping her safe, she sometimes just gets absurdly lucky, particularly when Buttons can't get to her in time.
* HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood: If this weren't a cartoon, Mindy's parents would lose custody on account of severe neglect.
* NiceGirl: She's shown many times that she absolutely adores Buttons and doesn't have a single mean bone in her body, making it very easy to see why Buttons is so dedicated to making sure she's safe.
* StrayingBaby: The whole point of her shorts is that she wanders off while Buttons tries to rescue her.

->'''Voiced by''': Creator/FrankWelker
Mindy's faithful dog. He is a lot like Lassie but gets in trouble instead of being the hero.
!!Tropes that apply to Buttons:
* BadlyBatteredBabysitter: This is the setup of his segments, where the writers appeared to take an almost sadistic glee in torturing the poor dog in his efforts to ensure that Mindy is safe and returned home.
* BigFriendlyDog: He's much bigger than his child owner Mindy and is very protective of her.
* ButtMonkey: The bad things he saves Mindy from usually end up happening to him.
* TheChewToy: He gets thoroughly abused trying to keep his charge from getting killed, and then gets yelled at by Mindy's mom for some minor infraction at the end.
* {{Determinator}}: Despite all the suffering, Buttons will never let Mindy be hurt.
* HeroicDog: He's undeniably heroic, charging into danger time and time again to rescue his charge, Mindy, (and getting comically beat up in the process).
* NervousWreck: Although given what he goes through, its completely understandable.
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: Buttons goes to enormous lengths, risking his own hide to keep Mindy from harm. Every episode ends with Buttons getting in trouble over some (generally minor) misbehavior he performed in the course of his duties. At least till the movie, where he finally got his due.
* PapaWolf: Towards Mindy, big time. Especially in TheMovie, when she and the rest of the characters are being rounded up by the BigBad's soldiers.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: In the future episode, after Mindy inadvertently gets clones, he packs up, holds out an "I QUIT!" sign and leaves.
* ThrowTheDogABone:
** In the CrossOver episode where [[WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures Elmyra]] bothers the Warners, they ultimately distract her by introducing Elmyra to Mindy. Mindy [[StrayingBaby wanders off as usual]], but when Buttons goes to chase her as usual, the Warners hold him back. Sure enough, Elmyra is chasing Mindy and receiving all the abuse that Buttons usually gets. Buttons effusively thanks the Warners in response.
** An often overlooked example is "Night of the Living Buttons", where Mindy's mother doesn't scold Buttons in the ending. She doesn't even warn Buttons about any kind of misbehavior he'll be punished for, instead remarking how strange it is to see fog over the nearby cemetery.
** Buttons nearly gets scolded for ruining Mindy's mother's flower bed in "Mindy in Wonderland", but she forgives Buttons after the dog hands her the rose in his mouth. Mindy even tells him she likes him much better than the rabbit she was chasing.
** At the end of ''Wakko's Wish'', he gets praise and several large steaks from Mindy's parents.
* UndyingLoyalty: Despite all the suffering, he loves Mindy.
* VertigoEffect: Occasionally done with Buttons the moment Mindy escapes.
* TheVoiceless: Until the end of ''Wakko's Wish'', which reveals that he actually ''can'' speak.

[[folder:Mindy's Parents]]
->'''Voiced by''': Tress [=MacNeille=] (Mother), Frank Welker (Father)

Mindy always calls them "Lady" and "Mr. Man," except in ''WesternAnimation/WakkosWish'', in which she finally calls her mother "Mom."
* AccidentalMisnaming: Mindy always addresses her mom as "Lady" (and her father as "Mr. Man").
* TheFaceless: The mother's face isn't entirely seen in ''Wakko's Wish'', but she's a brunette.
* HypocriticalHumor: Mindy's mom leaves her alone for going to things like a better parenting conference, the Mother of the Year Grand Finals, or on Oprah, because the topic is "Overprotective Mothers".
* ParentalNeglect: Which is probably why she never calls them "mom" and "dad" like they want her to (except in Wakko's Wish) and instead calls them "Lady" and "Mr Man", something she might refer to a stranger as.
* UnnamedParent: Their names are never revealed.

!!Minerva Mink
[[folder:Minerva Mink]]
->'''Voiced by''': Julie Brown
A mink who is so beautiful she causes all men around her to go crazy for her.
* AlliterativeName: '''M'''inerva '''M'''ink
* AllMenArePerverts: Pretty much the entire basis of her shorts, which are very ''WesternAnimation/RedHotRidingHood''-esque. Inverted whenever a male character is hunky enough for her to go absolutely gaga over, as those fellas seem to have an unusually high tolerance for her sex appeal.
* AllWomenAreLustful: Minerva tends to berate every schmoe who becomes attracted to her, though she herself tends to go bonkers upon meeting an attractive guy.
* AnimalsNotToScale: Her scale changes with the plot. In her first appearance she was shown to be the size of a normal mink (this is in relation to her size compared to Newt, who was shown earlier in that episode only coming up to his master's knee). However, she was most often shown the same size as human beings, only about a head shorter than Hello Nurse.
* BarefootCartoonAnimal: Normally she does not wear shoes in her animated shorts. Subverted sometimes in the comics (more for fashion motivations).
* DeadpanSnarker: Particularly in the comics.
* DemotedToExtra: Though she was never much of a major a character. Justified in that the censors found her cartoons TooHotForTV and scrapped them, but kept the character. In the end, she only appeared in twelve cartoons altogether, one of which was the Pinky and the Brain finale Star Warners, five of her appearances were silent cameos, but she gets a much larger presence in the comics however.
* DudeMagnet: Especially in the comics where even human males want her.
* EveryoneLovesBlondes: Although very little of it has to do with her hair...
* {{Expy}}: Minerva is very similar to WesternAnimation/BettyBoop, with her lustful attitude and ability to charm almost any guy. Both characters even share similar development stories (the censors thought both characters were too lustful, and [[ExecutiveMeddling did a little meddling with them.]])
* FemmeFatale: Not evil, but she will use her charms to make men do what she wants.
* FlatCharacter: Minerva doesn't get much characterization other than being a lustful tease who only has feelings for really handsome guys.
* FriendlyEnemy: By the end of her debut and in the comics, she seems fonder of Newt despite his status as her enemy, but then [[IneffectualSympatheticVillain one can hardly blame her.]]
* FurryFemaleMane: She has human-like head hair.
* GoldDigger: She say that her ideal boyfriend is not only handsome, but also has rich parents. In the comics, she says her dream is to marry a prince to pay her credit card debt, and another story has Newt discovering the most arousing scent for her is cash.
* HelloNurse: She drives every male, no matter their species, into wild take-filled Tex Avery-styled conniptions at her beauty. Especially in the comic. She herself has this reaction to cute guys with LustfulMelt included.
* HumanoidFemaleAnimal: Compared to Newt. Averted when Wilford become a werewolf, which in that case, he is just as anthropomorphic as Minerva.
* IHaveBoobsYouMustObey: Often uses her sex appeal to her advantage.
* MsFanservice: She is a beautiful and curvy anthropomorphic mink. In her short she appears in a ModestyTowel and has a ShowerScene (with SexySilhouette).
* NonMammalMammaries: So much that some shots of her abundant breasts were edited in the DVD collection. The intent was for her full cleavage to resemble a large puff of fur, but resulted in what fans tend to refer to as a "uni-boob". Apparently, what was OK on broadcast TV at 4 pm in 1992 was a little too spicy for a DVD release in 2009.
* NotSoAboveItAll: She may treat whomever is fawning over her with barely-restrained disdain, but as soon as an attractive guy walks by, she recreates, step-by-step each and every wild take aimed at her previously.
* PettingZooPerson: Aside from her face, ears, and tail, she basically looks like a human woman.
* ShesGotLegs: Especially in the comics. See [[ here]]
* SoBeautifulItsACurse: As revealed in the comics, Minerva has an extremely hard time doing ordinary things like grocery shopping and filing taxes, because every male [[InterspeciesRomance of every species]] in the area is panting and hooting at her. She even sings about it in her first appearance.
* SpeciesSurname: Mink.
* TooHotForTv: In a rare case of self-censorship, the staff retired the Minerva Mink shorts after only two episodes because the sexual undertones were too blatant (her second and last solo short, "Moon Over Minerva", was slightly edited for content before broadcast). She does make cameos sometimes, including the movie ''Wakko's Wish''.
* ValleyGirl: [[ActorAllusion Par the course for a Julie Brown character]]. She lacks the trademark accent, but retains the other characteristics of the archetype (vapid and snobbish, [[TheFashionista fashion-obsessed]], loves money\buying).

->'''Voiced by''': Arte Johnson
* AdvertisedExtra: He rarely appeared at all, only only five times in fact, only having a prominent role in two segments (only speaking in one of those and in the other he was basically a normal animal) and his other speaking role was a brief appearance in Gunga Dot, he had a silent appearance in the Macarena music video parody, and a blink you'll miss it cameo in another, but despite all this he was featured in both of the big group shots in the opening theme, making him seem like he'd be a recurring character but in reality he was just a minor character who barely ever showed up. He eventually came BackForTheFinale in the Animaniacs' film, ''Film/WakkosWish'' (literally), appearing in the very last scene that mirrored the show's intro, and in another with the show's various characters, but with no speaking role.
* AnthropomorphicZigZag: He is a CivilizedAnimal, but he sometimes a FunnyAnimal and in "Puttin on The Blitz" (where is a simple guard dog) he is a NearlyNormalAnimal.
* DistractedByTheSexy: And to his credit, he still keeps trying to catch Minerva, which would make him a {{Determinator}} as well?.
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: Every attempt to capture Minerva or have her end always bad.

[[folder:Wilford B. Wolf]]
->'''Voiced by''': Peter Scolari
* AlliterativeName: First and last names both begin with W.
* AlternateIdentityAmnesia: Wilford Wolf turns into a hunky werewolf when he sees a full moon, but doesn't remember what he did when in hunky form. Given he knows he's a werewolf (when Minerva finally confronts him about what kind of wolf he is and he says 'were') and doesn't show any problems remembering anything as he shifts between forms it's more a subversion, with his only issue not being aware how attractive his were-form is.
* AnthropomorphicZigZag: He switches between FunnyAnimal (in his normal form) and PettingZooPerson (when he turns into a werewolf).
* ChickMagnet: His transformed self earns him attention from a frog, a rabbit, and a bird, who all react the same way their male mates reacted to Minerva.
* DoggedNiceGuy: To Minerva, until she sees him in werewolf form.
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: Wears only blue pants.
* LustfulMelt: He melts into a puddle to react to Minerva's attractiveness.
* MagicPants: His pants aren't affected by his transformations.
* MrFanservice: As a werewolf. In this form seem to attract all the female animals and not only Minerva.
* {{Nerd}}
* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: He doesn't turn into a vicious beast. Instead, he's quite the well-spoken looker under the full moon.
* SexierAlterEgo: Wilford is normally a nerdy wolf AbhorrentAdmirer who turns sexy under a full moon.
* SpeciesSurname: Wolf.
* YouSexyBeast: In this werewolf form.

[[folder:Trudy's Cousin]]
->'''Voiced by''': Jess Harnell
* LaserGuidedKarma: Rejects and berates Minerva in the same manner she does so to everyone who has the hots for her.
* OralFixation: He puts a lollipop in his mouth and it's reminiscent of cigarette smoking.
* PettingZooPerson: He's basically a hunky guy with an animal face and tail.

!!The Hip Hippos
[[folder:Flavio and Marita (The Hip Hippos)]]
->'''Voiced by''': Frank Welker (Flavio), Tress [=MacNeille=] (Marita)
A rich pair of hippos who speak with Spanish accents who moved out of Africa and into a penthouse. Followed around by a zoologist named Gena Embryo who tries to keep them out of danger since the two are on the endangered list, but usually ends up battered in the process.
* AmazingTechnicolorWildlife: Flavio is a light blue hippo, and Marita is a purple hippo.
* BigFun: They're both obese, being hippos, and they love having a good time.
* HappilyMarried: A pair of married aristocrats who love each other very much.
* IdleRich: They're always seen lazing around and enjoying themselves.
* PaleFemalesDarkMales: Inverted since he's light blue and she's purple.
* PinkGirlBlueBoy: Flavio and Marita are blue and pinkish-purple respectively.
* RecurringExtra
* RichInDollarsPoorInSense: The Hip Hippos tried to do all their own chores when their maid quit, and failed miserably.
* TertiarySexualCharacteristics: Marita differs from Flavio aside from being colored purple instead of blue because she has lipstick and wears a bow.
* WalkingDisasterArea: A recurring theme with their shorts--While they're off on their adventures, they're oblivious to the property damage they're causing with their girth and weight, since they're hippos and all. And Gena will be on the receiving end of it whenever she appears.

[[folder:Gena Embryo]]
->'''Voiced by''': Tress [=MacNeille=]

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: She appears in two shorts and is never seen again.
* PunnyName

* HairTriggerTemper: Every problem a teen could have (panicking over her date being late, trying to learn how to drive, getting a pimple, etc.) causes her to turn into a monster.
* NoPeriodsPeriod: And that's why the writers created [[CuteAndPsycho Katie Kaboom]] to explain to innocent little children [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar why their big sister chucks a psycho for NO JUSTIFIABLE REASON WHATSOEVER once a month]]. Basically, their explanation was TeensAreMonsters.
* SnapBack: Almost all her shorts end with the family home in ruins, but it's back to normal in time for the next short. God knows what her parents' insurance premiums are.

* IronButtMonkey: No matter how many horrible injuries he suffers, the Mime will always be back for more.
* TheSpeechless: Justified since he's a mime. He has actually said two words, in the [[GratuitousFrench French-themed]] Buttons and Mindy episode "Les Boutons et le Ballon". "[[spoiler:Le owww.]]" He also sings in crowd scenes, though his voice is cleverly lost among the throng.
* YourMimeMakesItReal: The Mime mimes something which then comes true. For example he'll mime pulling a rope and it turns out he's pulling a tiger towards him.

[[folder:Chicken Boo]]
->'''Voiced by''': Frank Welker

A giant chicken who has a habit of disguising himself as a human.
* TheAce: He's exceedingly good at nearly everything he does.
* AcrophobicBird: Surprisingly averted for a cartoon chicken. A few shorts show that he is actually able to fly and he escapes some of his pursuers this way.
* AnimalsNotToScale: He's a chicken, I tell ya! A giant chicken!
* AnthropomorphicZigZag: Chicken Boo is a NearlyNormalAnimal, but when he puts on a PaperThinDisguise, he becomes something of a FunnyAnimal.
* BrokenPedestal: When his disguises fails, one person who has already seen through him says "I told you that guy was a chicken!", and everyone who praised Chicken Boo earlier turns against him.
* InformedAbility: In many of his segments, he would be unmasked and ousted before he even got the chance to show off his reputed skills on screen.
* KavorkaMan: He's attracted the attention of several women (save for the ones who do see through his disguise) and at least one guy.
* PaperThinDisguise: Exaggerated, to the point where all he needs is a hat to pass as a Southern war general.

* TheVoiceless: He's a generally mute character, save his realistic clucking.
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: He is regularly ostracized seemingly for the sole reason that he is a chicken, regardless of whether he was any good at his job prior to being unmasked.

* YouHaveToBelieveMe: There's always one character who sees through TheMasquerade. Only one, though.

The star of the "Good Idea/Bad Idea" segments.

* PrimaDonnaDirector: When directing Slappy in "Nutcracker Slappy".

[[folder:The Flame]]
->'''Voiced by''': Luke Ruegger

A childlike candle flame who shows up at important historical events like Jefferson's authoring of The Declaration of Independence and Longfellow's writing of Paul Revere's Ride.
* AnimateInanimateObject: He's a sentient candle flame.
* OutOfGenreExperience: Unlike the rest of the shorts in the series, the Flame's shorts aren't at all comedic. They're drawn very conservatively (as opposed to the wacky, bouncy style of the other segments) and are played completely straight.
