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 so hilarious! He is extremely witty and clever with wordplay, and his slightly "adult" nature is funny without being too inappropriate. He has the best lines, the best jokes, and the best songs in the show. He never fails to make me laugh whenever I watch the show. Plus, I love how he's such a good older brother to his siblings (especially in "Wakko's Wish").

Oldest of the siblings, his comebacks and speech were just terrific and who didn't love his sneaky side of adult humour, plus Rob Paulsen was fantastic as the role, bet neither of you can do Yakko's World

Yakko is the best! Not only is he hilarious in a very clever way, but he also is an excellent older brother who takes good care of his younger siblings. Overall a really awesome character.

He's hilarious

2 Wakko

Wakko is definitely the zaniest of the cast, and he's comically stupid. He always has a childish charm to him, and he almost always adorable!

Wakko may be the most nutty of the trio, but he has a heart of gold, is very optimistic, and has that childish charm to go along with this little bundle of zany cuteness.

I am Wakko's biggest number one fan in the world he always makes me laugh out loud, I love him so much times infinity, and I think he has big heart and I also think he is really cute and funny!

He has an English accent? Check. Likes to eat? Check. Made Dr. Scratchansniff lose his hair? Check.

3 Slappy Squirrel Slappy Squirrel

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!

HILARIOUS.She is by far my favorite character on the show,and she's funny without making bathroom or adult jokes.

4 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

5 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!

Why is she called "Dot"?

Warner Bros.

The period after the S in Bros of Warner Bros. is a Dot

6 The Brain

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 )

7 Pinky Pinky

Best Idiot in a child show

Super funny dude narf

8 Hello Nurse

She is one of the hottest animated babes next to Minerva mink

Hello nurse is hot becuse of her blonde hair and she has a great personality

He's the best

10 The Mime

The Contenders

11 Buttons
12 Rita
13 Ralph
14 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.
