Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

"So hang with us, and then you'll see

Dubba-dubba's all in the family

Jammin' this place for kids to be

Dubba-dubba Kids Dubba-dubba WB!"
—From a music video promoting the block (aired circa 1998)

Kids' WB! was the Saturday morning and weekday afternoon childrens' programming block on The WB (and The CW for its first-and-a-half year), and it deserves special mention as being not only the longest running Saturday morning block in television history, but also the only block of its kind to outlive the channel it was created for.

The name now lives on a website featuring the Looney Tunes shorts, the Hanna-Barbera library, and the DC Comics-based cartoons. For those of you who prefer the original television block, click here to view a blast of the block's past.
