Cast of Characters:
The Warner Bros. & The Warner Sister
Yakko: The eldest Warner Brother. Yakko is the "team leader".Yakko wears no shirt, but wears yellow slacks. Voiced by Rob Paulson, Yakko is the tallest and most verbal of the Warner siblings. Yakko is a smart-alec who has a comeback on just about anything. His wisecracks are most likely inspired by the great Groucho Marx. He is an adolescent teen, which has been clearly seen by his fixation with girls. He idolizes Michelle Pfieffer, and says "Hellooo Nurse!" to any attractive female. Yakko's most famous skit is arguably "The Nations of the World" song.
Wakko: The middle Warner child, Wakko dons a blue shirt and a red cap. Voiced by Jess Harnell, Wakko is the strangest, wackiest Warner of the three, hence the name. His voice is an accent of The Beatles (most likely Ringo Starr). Wakko usually walks around with his tongue hanging out of his mouth. He, just like his brother Yakko, has a fixation with girls. He joins his brother Yakko in saying "Hellooo Nurse!" to attractive females. Wakko has a notable catch-phrase, "Faboo!" Wakko's most famous skits are arguably "The Great Wakkorotti" and "Wakko's America".
Dot: The youngest Warner child, Dot wears a pink dress and a yellow flower in her hair. Voiced by Tress MacNeille, her full name is actually Princess Angelina Contessa Louisa Francesca Banana Fanna Bo Besca the Third. She would then say, "but you can call me Dot, but not Dottie. Call me Dottie, and you die." She is extremely cute, and she knows it. When the Warner Brothers introduce themselves, she replies when it's her turn, "and I'm cute!" She thinks her brothers ogling of girls to be extremely gross, but that is actually very hypocritical of her since she does the same thing to attractive men. Her biggest crush is on Mel Gibson. Her most notable skit is "Dot's Poetry Corner".
Pinky and the Brain:
Pinky: Pinky is a dimwitted and unintelligent genetically modified albino mouse. He lives in same cage with Brain, another genetically modified albino mouse. Pinky is a very happy and eccentric. Pinky is known for saying the words "narf" in the end of most of his sentences. Pinky is shown to be the exact opposite of Brain, as Pinky is tall, unintelligent, has a very large overbite and is very optimistic. Pinky usually causes the failure or screws up Brain's plans when it comes to dominating the world. Each episode would end by Brain saying "We must prepare tomorrow night". Pinky would then ask " Why? What are we going to do tomorrow night?". Brain would then respond by saying "The same thing we do every night, Pinky - try to take over the world!".
Brain: Brain is an very intelligent genetically modified albino mouse. Brain is a no nonsense type of guy, as he gets easily annoyed by Brain and regularly insults him for his stupidity. Brain always some sort of plan to conquer the world, but it always fails as usually Pinky would cause the failure. Brain and Pinky are completely opposite from each other, as Brain is short, with an enlarged head, has a very high level of intelligence, is stubborn and spends most of his time trying to dominate the world. Pinky does not have any of Brain's traits. Each episode would end by Brain saying "We must prepare tomorrow night". Pinky would then ask " Why? What are we going to do tomorrow night?". Brain would then respond by saying "The same thing we do every night, Pinky - try to take over the world!".
