The Warner Bros. Store -- 5th Avenue, New York City, 1995 -- Part 2

A couple of additional photos of the flagship Warner Bros. Studio Store in NYC back in mid-1995, when they featured "Animaniacs," specifically Yakko, Wakko, and Dot, in their window displays.

  1. This is awesome! Shame they don't still have three awesome iconic characters to draw people to their stores. How big of a sensation were these characters during the show's run? Potentially, these characters could have been as big as Bugs Bunny if the show wasn't ruined by the network, and Jamie Kelner.

  5. Weed was collicky as an adult.

    I hear that Weed alternately loves and hates "Interesting News Items," which is now a part of "My Blog List."

    No -- it's a shame they don't have stores to draw people to their iconic characters.
