Greatest Animaniacs Characters

The 90s was one of the best decades for cartoons, but non other than Animaniacs, who was your favourite and why?

The Top Ten

1 Yakko Yakko Yakko is the oldest of the Warner Brothers. He's the gang lender, the glib, fast-talker and sly wise-guy in the Groucho/Bugs Bunny mold. He's the thinker, the planner, the schemer, and the trio's recreation director. Each day, he has lots of unique ideas of things for the group to do. He's full of boyish ...read more.

I have a crush on Yakko.

Yakko is witty and hilarious! He's a totally mix of "I am the smart and responsible adult of the trio" and "I am the one that forgot to grow up"! speaking of grown ups, Yakko has always made those adult jokes we never knew as kids! His wise guy attitude and Tex Avery style with ladies is what brought my attention to him. That's all I've got to say for now. *Flying Kisses* MWAH! Goodnight everybody!

Me: We're the aAAANIMAANIACS! Yakko's cute-
My friends: wait, don't you mean-
Me: did I stutter?

Adorable! I love YAKKO he is super silly and intillligent.

3 Slappy Squirrel Slappy Squirrel

The best - SapphireDragon95

Slappy is a character who has a lot to enjoy. Despite the fact that she is a character from many generations ago, she still has a great essence of comedy key to Animaniacs. Her nephew Skippy also adds to the generation gap between those who grew up in the 50s and 60s, and those who grew up in the 90s. Slappy manages to show how the classic Looney Tunes shorts worked well for a newer audience. - c0mf0rta61ynum6

She's so awesome

Slappy is HILARIOUS! Especially in that ball park episdode!

4 Dot Dot

Dot is one of the greatest female animated characters ever to appear in kids faces. Let's face it, she is "cute".

Yea she really is both of those. She never had girl problems. She was never was a stereotype. She had a personality. She wasn't like Webby from Ducktales or Molly from TaleSpin. She was a funny character and Warner Brothers first true original female character.

I voted for dot because she's so low down! I agree yakko is my favourite - then it's a tie between wakko and dot!

Dot is just a doll~
I love her bold and sassy personality and how she looks out for her brothers, even though she's the baby sister.

5 Rita and Runt

Rita and Runt may not have exactly been the funniest characters of the series, but they were both cute, adorable memorable characters with interesting personalities. They were the one segment of the show that actually had a dash of reality to it.

Rita was so cute and cuddly. In my opinion, she was way cuter than Dot was. She may not have been as cute as Skippy, but I still strongly say that she was one of the most adorable characters on the show.

Rita and Runt is AWESOME! - Animaniacs1Fan

6 The Brain The Brain

Pinky if you don't stop this foolishness right now, I shall have to hurt you!

A total magnificent bastard. He's just so unsympathetic yet such a great character. Plus his partner in crime, Pinky, is the second best character on the show.

An underrated genius who should take over the world. I'd join him. He's my favorite character (tied with wakko). He gets his funny moments to laugh at. So best character (along with wakko )

€I will not utter that nonsensical syllable, Pinky! ”

15 Mindy

How could you not love Mindy and Buttons. My fiancee and I call each other lady and Mr. Man because of Mindy. Sometimes we fast forward the reruns to that particular cartoon.


We also call each other dot and Mel Gibson. We even tried to find a cake topper with the 2 but we would have to custom order so we decided no cake topper.

17 Minerva Mink Minerva Mink

She is dang right sexy! She is one reason why I’m a furry! Most MALE anthropomorphic animal characters made me a furry but Minerva is one of the only few female characters that made me furry ( along with Colleen from road rovers and and rainbow dash from MLP). I know she only appeared in two episodes as a main character because she was too “ sexy” and the rest of the episodes she had most cameos. She was still funny even if she was sexy too. She My favorite furry girl of all time. My favorite furry boy is Furball from Tiny tunes. ( Another furry boy I love is Fenick from Zootoipa) Minerva you made the furry fandom stay a fandom forever, even if the furries get hate they will always stay fandom and not listen.to the dumb yiffing haters. I’m a furry myself and I try my hardest to stick up for the damn haters out there. I don’t accept your opinion if you hate furries, it’s an insult to me. I’m really sensitive but also sassy.
