Why It Rocks
- This is good way to end the original Animaniacs series.
- Rita and Runt finally came back, after their segment was dropped in the first season of Animaniacs.
- Great music from the late Richard Stone.
- Catchy songs like "He's Got A Ha'Penny Today" or "The Wishing Star Belongs to Three".
- There's a lot subplots with the Animaniacs characters, and they ended they goodly
- In Slappy and Skippy's subplot, Slappy's tree has died, and Skippy wants to make friends. In the end, Slappy's tree grew back and Skippy got to meet friends
- In Mindy and Buttons' subplot, Mindy's mom wishes Mindy would stop calling her "Lady" and call her "Mom", and Buttons wishes he was rewarded for keeping Mindy safe. In the end, Mindy finally calls her mother "Mom" and Buttons is rewarded for keeping Mindy safe.
- In Rita and Runt's subplot, they wished they have a home. In the end, Rita and Runt now live with Dr. Otto Scratchansniff and Hello Nurse.
- In Dr. Scratchansniff and Hello Nurse's subplot, they wished that their elixers were delicous. In the end, they discovered a mix and it was good.
- In the Goodfeathers' subplot, they wished they were respected. In the end, Bobby, Pesto and Squit sees everyone cheering at them, even though they were cheering at the statues of the Warners, but shhh... Don't tell them.
- In Plotz' subplot, he wishes he would be king. In the end, he became the worker of the Burger-Meister King.
- In Pinky and The Brain's subplot, Brain wished he got absolute power of the town, Pinky wished to be with his girlfriend, Pharfignewton the horse. In the end, Brain became the prime minister of the Warners and Pinky became the royal stable mouse.
- The plot about Yakko and Wakko trying to save their sister, Dot is very creative.
- Dot's death is very emotional and heartbreaking.
- You gotta cheer up and never ever give up hope.
- Even though the movie's called "Wakko's Wish", the film doesn't focus on Wakko that much and only focuses more all the Warners, except for the first 22 minutes and after Dot's death.
- While Dot's death scene is very emotional, It is then revealed that she was acting, while this can be funny for some but others may find it offensive to what could've been a genuinely touching scene.
