Wakko's Wish

When wishing on a falling star it is best to wish for the star to not crash into your house.

Luckily, for the orphan in this animated holiday special, his lucky star landed in the mountains.

Informed by a fairy that the first to touch the fallen star receives a wish, Wakko (Jess Harnell) informs his brother Yakko (Rob Paulsen) and ailing sister Dot (Tress MacNeille), who then blab to Acme Falls about it.

Needles to say, the race for the wishing star is on as the Warner siblings, the townsfolk and the King's (Paxton Whitehead) tax collector (Frank Welker) vie for their wish.

A cheeky jab at holiday gluttony courtesy of Steven Spielberg's Animaniacs, Wakko's Wish seamlessly applies the series' offbeat brand of lovable lunacy, shameless lampooning and catchy musical numbers to the beloved holiday season.

Regardless, whomever touches the star first will wish their body didn't just combust. Green Light
