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 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

Yakko is just adorable. He's so clever and witty and always manages to put a smile on my face. Being the oldest, his humor is intended for mature audiences. Like Wakko and Dot, he's extremely annoying, and a bit perverted, but in a way that's cuddly and charming. But, he still knows when it's time to get serious and is very protective of his younger siblings. How can you NOT love him? He's just perfect!

Yakko Warner has always been my favorite. He is my cartoon-crush of choice. He is such an awesome older brother (and practically their parental figure, supported evidence in the reboot!), he's just precious in all the right ways. He's hilarious, he's protective, he's adorable, just yes. This is Yakko Warner, who is, to me, the best character in Animaniacs. Can't wait for Season 2 of the reboot for more of our darling, precious (anxiety-filled, poor baby! :c) Yakko Warner!

2 Wakko

Wakko used to be just a background character to me until I watched him ramble about having to use the potty, and then I began noticing him. This little guy has got it all- he's hilarious, extremely sweet and loving, and absolutely adorable! No regrets on saying that Wakko is my favorite Animaniac and a great imaginary friend.

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!

3 Dot

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.

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

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!

4 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.

Slappy is absolutely hilarious and I hope she appears in the reboot outside of a non-speaking few seconds on screen role.

5 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 )

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

6 Pinky
7 Rita

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.

Definitely the best segment, definitely. It was quite sad tho, but it's nice to have sad things after watching a lot of goofy things in the show. Great songs, great characters, great story, 10/10, needs to come back in the reboot

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.

8 Hello Nurse

Ok you guys over exaggerate political correctness, you will probably think she will be banned in the remake. But Minerva Mink only had two episodes.

Let's cross our fingers for her to return in the reboot. Because I REALLY want her to. Along with others, like Rita and Runt.

She is loyal, hard working, and hot!

9 Dr. Scratchansniff

He looks like Bernie Sanders before Wakko drove Dr. Scratchansniff crazy.

"Your hair is your head. This is hair!"

He should not be the last one. He was the most memorable character of all

10 Buttons

I feel sorry for this dog he gets into trouble when all he does is try to save Mindy poor dog

The Contenders
11 The Mime
12 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.

13 Katie Ka-boom

She is one of my favourite characters so that is why I picked her

14 Skippy Squirrel

I felt sorry for Skippy when he got bullied he's so nice and a well mannered little chap

15 Minerva Mink Minerva Mink is a character in the TV series, Animaniacs. She was created by Warner Bros. animation producers Paul Dini and Sherri Stoner.

I feel kinda sad about Minerva. I mean, she was basically just there to be sexy... But she could've been a WAY better character! They could've de-sexualized her a bit and given her a stronger personality and she could've just been another awesome character that everyone has a crush on. I mean, come on. Yakko's completely amazing and don't even try to pretend you didn't have a crush on him growing up. Minerva could've been like that too! Side note: I feel like if they were going to change her personality, they should make her more like Sharpay from High School Musical...
Sorry for ranting. Most of this probably doesn't make sense...

16 Bugs Bunny Bugs Bunny is an animated cartoon character, created by the staff of Leon Schlesinger Productions (later Warner Bros.) He is one of (if not) the most famous cartoon characters, and he is in the show Looney Tunes. His famous quote is "What's up doc?". He is a gray colored bunny with big teeth and big... read more

I know he's not in the show (much) but come on! He's freaking bugs bunny!

17 Ralph
18 Chicken Boo
19 Baloney

Baloney is a friendly friend that we made up ourselves. He likes to play and sing all day and we made up ourselves. He is better than Barney

20 Mindy's Mom

No, she's the worst character. Not only is she the most neglectful parent ever but so much so that she literally has the dog babysit for her and then this idiot just yells at buttons when all he did was try to protect Mindy. Buttons deserves better.

21 Pesto

He's so mean to Squit and always beats him up for interpreting the things he says the wrong way.

Its always funny watching him beat up Squit he even sounds like Joe Pesci.

22 Daffy Duck Daffy Duck is an animated cartoon character produced by Warner Bros. Styled as an anthropomorphic black duck, the character has appeared in cartoon series such as Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies, where he usually has been depicted as the best friend and occasional arch-rival of Bugs Bunny.

24 Mr. Director
