The Warner Bros. Television Network, commonly called The WB, was a television network in the United States. It was founded by the Warner Bros. film studio and Tribune Company on January 11, 1995. The network was sometimes called "The Frog" because the network's mascot was an animated frog named Michigan J. Frog.
The WB also had a group of programs aimed at children under the name Kids WB. Kids WB showed mainly animated series, for example, Jackie Chan Adventures, Taz-Mania, Tiny Toon Adventures, Animaniacs, Pinky and the Brain and Batman: The Animated Series.
