Creator: Kids' WB!
The best place for cartoons with pants and with no pants.

"So hang with us, and then you'll see
Dubba-dubba's all in the family
Jammin' this place for kids to be
Dubba-dubba Kids Dubba-dubba WB!"
—From a music video promoting the block, circa 1998.

Yakko Warner: What is a dubba anyway?
Jeff Bennett: We don't know, but it's awfully fun to say!
—The Saturday morning block's intro sequence from Fall 1996.

The Saturday-morning and weekday afternoon childrens' programming block on The WB (and The CW for its first one-and-a-half years), which deserves special mention as being not only the longest-running Saturday-morning block in television history, but also the only block of its kind to outlive the channel it was created for.

The name now lives on as a website featuring the Looney Tunes shorts, the Hanna-Barbera library, and the DC Comics-based cartoons. For those of you who prefer the original television block, click here to view a blast of the block's past.

The block itself is associated with the following tropes:

  • Cross Through: Happened very often in the promos, especially in the ones advertising Pokemon.
    Agent Kay: Meet [my new partner,] Bulbasaur.
    Bulbasaur: Bulbasaur.
    Agent Jay: You're trading me in for a lizard?! What's so special about him!?
    Bulbasaur: Bulbasaur!! (performs Vine Whip on Jay)
    Kay: Built-in weaponry.
  • Dueling Shows: With Disney's One Saturday Morning and the Fox Box (later 4Kids TV).
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Jeff Bennett as the original announcer.
  • Roger Rabbit Effect: The shows' animated stars would sometimes interact with characters from The WB's live-action sitcoms in the bumpers.
    Curtis Williams: Dot has something to say.
    Dot: Thank you, Curtis. And now, back to our program.
