Plotz thought the cartoon was unusual and weird but compelling and greenlighted more. The Warners' slapstick soon began to overshadow Buddy, who was eventually fired. Plotz then gave the Warners their very own series of cartoons which was Plotz's "second biggest mistake of his life". The Warners' cartoons were all thoroughly bizarre, including an eight-hour cartoon in which they tried to pull fly paper off their backsides.
But the Warners became huge stars despite it, mixing with Hollywood stars and starlets of the time. The Warners drove the studio crazy with their antics, however. For example, Wakko kept eating up the scenery and backgrounds. Thaddeus Plotz wanted to cancel the Warners, but they still had one more cartoon on their contract. Wakko got to direct the last cartoon that involved Wakko playing Yankee Doodle with his armpits which was Plotz's "biggest mistake of my life".
Plotz was furious about that cartoon. The moment he saw it, he unilaterally canceled their contract, angering the Warners' agent Irving "Swifty" Laboo actually Chicken Boo in costume.
With no more cartoons to make the Warners were free to run around the studio lot as they pleased, causing even more chaos for the company. Eventually they were captured by studio security and locked away in the Warner Bros. Studios water tower in Burbank, California. The Warners' cartoons "which made absolutely no sense," were supposedly so insane and nonsensical that the studio executives also locked the films away in vaults, never to have them released.
Later episodes showed that they often escaped during various points in history, being let out for a day every few years while the water tower was being fumigated, and were occasionally loaned out to other animation studios, particularly during the 60s. When the Warners most recently escaped, they again began to cause chaos in the Warner Bros.
Otto Scratchansniff , to "de-zanitize" the Warners, or make the Warners less zany, to stop the chaos in the studio. In the 33rd issue of the Animaniacs comic book , there was a "long lost" fourth Warner named Sakko who was obviously modeled after Rip Taylor ; he has not been mentioned outside this comic, and his existence is considered non-canonical by fans. Maybe just collapsing the headers and getting rid of "just the major ones".
