Trivia / Wakko's Wish

  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: Or in this case, the DVDs. Warner Bros. released the movie on VHS, but did not release it on DVD, even though they were already releasing movies on that format at the time. Eventually, it did become available on iTunes and (as of 2012) has regularly appeared on The Hub. Finally, Warner Bros announced that they would be releasing the film on DVD on October 7th 2014.
  • Milestone Celebration: This movie is essentially Animaniacs' 100th episode.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Originally, the movie was planned to be theatrically released after very good test scores, but the idea was scrapped due to the last few animated movies WB had distributed (with the exception of Space Jam) doing poorly at the box office and Warner Bros. didn't want to spend money on advertising.
    • Plans for two sequels (This Means Warners, taking place in World War II, and Revolution Warners, during the Revolutionary War) were considered but due to the death of composer Richard Stone, Steven Spielberg's disinterest in Warner Brothers (though that's changed years after as his film, Ready Player One (2018), is a WB film), the AOL/Time Warner deal and other reasons, the ideas were scrapped.
