Wakko Warner is the Warner brothers’ middle child and one of three protagonists (together with Yakko and Dot Warner) of the television series Animaniacs and its remake. He’s an anthropomorphic toon of unknown species.
Wakko is the one that employs the most visual and physical humor, such as slapstick and shapeshifting, among his three siblings. He also employs the least amount of wordplay, since he takes almost everything literally. He is also the only one of his siblings that speaks with a non-American accent, emulating Ringo Starr’s Liverpool speech.

Wakko Warner Family
The Warner Siblings’ whole background is cloaked in mystery, beginning with the fact that their parents are unknown. The original pitch bible claims that “they have no parents. Or, at least, no one will admit to being their parent.” While it is likely that they were simply drawn as orphans, the Warners appear to believe they do have existing parents, despite the fact that they don’t appear to have any memories of them, as Yakko speculated they may be pencils. In “King Yakko,” he seems to draw a family tree, albeit this might be for the purpose of the animation. In a similar canon ambiguity situation, in the sketch “Turkey Jerky,” he claims that they were lost in the wilderness and raised by wild turkeys, and in “This Pun for Hire,” when Wakko misses Dot’s reference to “Gypsys, Tramps & Thieves,” he states that he doesn’t remember those events occurring and asks Dot for clarification. Sakko Warner is the brothers’ cousin in the comic series.
The Warners have been indicated or directed as royalty multiple times, hinting they may be from an aristocratic family; Yakko is in line to inherit the country of Anvilania in “King Wakko” (though this might be for the purpose of the animation), and Dot’s full name includes the title of Princess. In the universe of Wakko’s Wish, the Warners are also canonically royalty.
