ABOUT THE WATER TOWER
The Warner Bros. water tower was built in 1927 and has since been declared an historical landmark.
Standing 100 feet tall, the water tower contains a 100,000-gallon tank — although it currently holds no water.
Previously located next to the Warner Bros. Fire Department, it was moved following the Long Beach earthquake in 1933, when the Warners realized that if the tower had fallen and damaged the Fire Department, the Fire Department would not have been able to provide emergency assistance.
The water tower was once home to the animated stars of Animaniacs (Yakko, Wacko and Dot) from the 1930s until they escaped in the 1990s.
