The Warners were born like a normal human kid would be. Their parents left Toon Town to live in the human world, and they grew up in a big fancy house there.
Soon after Dot is born, their parents become sick. Yakko and Wakko are put in charge of caring for the baby girl when the servants are too busy. Yakko thinks it’s his fault that his parents are sick, he doesn’t completely understand. He, Wakko and Dot have been vaccinated for the disease. He overhears servants saying that they’re going to send himself, Wakko and Dot to some workcamp for the rest of their lives, so Yakko grabs whatever he can find and leaves with his siblings. At this point, he’s 6, Wakko is 3 and Dot is 1. So don’t blame him really for making a hasty decision.
The three lived on the streets for around a year, moving like nomads and performing a bit for money and food and such. They were discovered by a friendly old man (who might be a relative of Otto Scratchansniff, just for fun) who took them to an orphanage. This place is run by Mrs. Peabody, who is 38 years old at this time, which is 1923. The children there found them strange, they had ears and tails. They weren’t normal. They weren’t really made fun of, though, just stared at, until two years in, (1925) when an awful kid with a pig nose named Marc arrives. He turns the whole orphanage against them, and Yakko and Wakko fight with him while Dot hides in the next room, curled in a ball, trying not to hear any of it. She only comes out once, when Marc socks Yakko right in the nose, causing Wakko to try to fight back, only to be held back by his older brother. This just gives Marc more to make fun of, because Yakko bleeds ink instead of blood. Another thing he teases them about is how they can’t see in color except for their red noses.
They lived at the orphanage for 6 years, slowly growing out of their clothes and getting taller and older as normal kids do. All three grow more anxious to leave as the years pass, because in the time they were there Looney Tunes started. (Though I’m aware it was actually 1930, not the 20’s, let’s just let that ONE detail slide.) These toons inspired the Warners to write songs and perform for the other kids.
The year before they leave the orphanage (1928) they decide they want to be the Warner brothers and the Warner sister. They think it’s catchy. They don’t know their real last name. They might not have even had one.
Dot takes on a like for sewing, it’s more calming than bike riding, which she is afraid of. She takes their old clothes and fixes them up, turning Yakko’s overalls into slacks and adding more cloth to Wakko’s old sweater. Her baby onesie is too tiny to make into a dress, so she makes it a skirt instead. Only problem, she over estimated both the boys sizes. Wakko’s sweater is oversized and falls too low, and Yakko needs a belt to hold the pants up. They still wear them, though, out of respect for Dot.
They wanted to follow their dreams of being cartoon stars. They still didn’t know they were really toons, yet somehow they still wanted it. A sixth sense thing. Yakko was mature for his age of 13, so in 1929 Mrs. Peabody (age 44) with a heavy heart, lets him go. Not without hugs from the three first. They were at that orphanage for 6 years. She watched them grow up.
They sneaked into Warner Brother's studios, unnoticed, late in the middle of the night. On the lot, they run into Lon Borax, an animator, pacing under the water tower. He is frantic, trying to come up with an idea to finish his Buddy cartoon with. He sees the Warners, and immediately offers them a job. They agree right away, not knowing he’s tricking them. He takes them to his office. Wakko steals a hat from the hatstand in the room, he likes the way it looks on him. Borax gives them cartoon gloves, the Warners are surprised that they have four finger holes, most gloves don’t. It’s like they were made to be toons. It’s like they were actually…
Borax uses an animator’s pen to suck the Warners inside, the force of it ripping off some of their clothes. He redraws them in a frenzy, laughing like an evil maniac. He doesn’t recall this part of the Warners creation, he’s too loony.
Being redrawn, the three were reborn as crazy toons, and will not age unless they want to. They go on to do Buddy cartoons, and everything else that is explained in the 65th anniversary special.
Then the 90’s…
Well… you know.
