I don't have enough medical background to say what might possibly be "wrong" with Wakko. However, Yakko did blame it on "middle child syndrome" once. That's good enough for me. ;)

After seeing "Go Fish", I assumed he was a full-blown schizoid.

I remember in the episode "Macidemia Nut" where Wakko burped on purpose without saying "Excuse Me" & then Dot (a.k.a. The Macidemia Nut) threw him out of the tower.

No wait, I was talking about when Dot threw Wakko out of the towere in the episode "Macidemia Nut" so the answer to the question that YOU posted would be a No. Sorry that I got mixed up with what your posting, I am still getting used to being here. :lol:

the only thing that's ever been said in the TV show or comics or otherwise is 1) "middle kid syndrome" as Yakko called Wakko's wackiness as Fram said earlier & 2) in "Kid in the Lid" Wakko said he had Hypoglycemia - a type of diabetes (although it's often called the opposite of diabetes). No mention or hint of autism - at least officially.

although to be honest WakkoLuver39, I didn't get what you said in your first post until everyone else posted... I thought you said he had autism but gave no proof, but then it seemed like you were convinced by what others said which had nothing to do with autism. sorry, I'm lost.

According to the writer's bible it says that Wakko was smacked on the head with a mallet too many times, making him wacky.

We like our Wakko just the way he is. We wouldn't want him any other way.

Id rather say he has autism and hypglycimia it would make more sense and explain why he acts the way he does. Would also explain why tneds to act the strngest and why he says things like faboo all the time hes the only warner sib who isnt acutall normal. Dot is normal she just is vain Yakko is normal he just cts on impulse but Wakko.Wakko is full blown autistic child I should know i have aspergers. I thin kWhat wakko has is a severe form of autism but its not so severe as ot inhibit his spech. the obsession with mallets is his autistic thing liek my obsession is cartoons his is mallets sorry if i offened anyone here with my opinion

That's a pretty good fan theory. Wakko seems to show some signs of autism, so you could be right.

Wakko is not autistic. The key characteristics of autism are deficient communicative skills and a lack of a working theory of mind, and these he doesn't display. Mallets are merely his preferred comedic tool and not a real obsession. His hyperactivity is more indicative of ADHD. Hyperactivity is, however, frequently observed in autistic children, and this fact has apparently led to some confusion here.

I agree. Wakko isn't autistic, he just a little wacky. I'd think that Wakko's like this to compensate for being the "middle child". With how ignored the middle child usually is, it's a possibility.
