The Warner Brothers (and the Warner Sister) go on a quest to find a fallen wishing star to help Dot with her illness. Unfortunately the rest of the town, including an evil king, also hear about the star and want to get to it first to have their own wishes come true. It's a race against time and it's up to the three zany siblings to get there first.
The song that the townspeople sing when Wakko's train returns is a parody of "The Wells Fargo Wagon" from 'Meredith Wilson''s The Music Man (1962). See more »

Before the opening Warner Bros. Family Entertainment logo fades out, Wakko Warner, in tuxedo attire, walks out from behind the shield and takes a huge bite of it, much to Bugs' annoyance. See more »
An excellent finale to the Animaniacs series. Full of Heart.
Wakko's wish is a very worthy finale to the series. While some have complained that it isn't like the show at all, I don't really think it is meant to be. Nor should it. Does anyone really want to see 90 minutes of out and out zanyness? Instead, we get a rather touching story that gives all the characters and emotional weight they never really had before. And of course, we still get the zanyness, it's just placed within a larger framework.
Personally, I would love to see more Animaniacs stories done in this exact style (hope hope hope!).
With Wakko's Wish, Animaniacs ends it's run with a solid piece of work, very unlike the show in many ways, and for that I am glad. Nothing could have been worse for it to finish with something that was basically just another episode.
