Welcome Home, Animaniacs! is a 1995 special that was centered around the fact that for Kids' WB's inaugural season, Animaniacs would be moving to the block from competitor Fox Kids. The special was originally meant to introduce the five new shows, along with Animaniacs, on the then-new Kids' WB block. However, it became obscure almost immediately as only very few WB network affiliates ended up airing the special; and those that did actually aired it after the inaugural Kids' WB broadcast on September 9, 1995.
The special was hosted by Harland Williams and also featured the cast of several of The WB's primetime shows introducing each of the block's shows, wrapped around new animation of Yakko, Wakko and Dot driving to the Warner Bros. studios from Fox's studios.
The special never aired again anywhere after it's original broadcast and currently no footage of the special is available.
