In 1995, participants in the alt.tv.animaniacs newsgroup decided to meet each other in Southern California. Hearing this, the producers at Warner Bros. Animation invited us to visit them. It happened on August 11, 1995 (by a complete coincidence, the Nostalgia Critic posted a new interview with some of the show's crew exactly 15 years later). The E! television network was there for a part of the visit and produced this segment for their E! News Daily show. I'm the guy in the hat. The hat became a running gag online and later was drawn on The Lobe in an episode of Freakazoid!.
The event was called Animania IV because it was the fourth such planned gathering of Animaniacs fans. Animania events continued after this, and still happen well into the 21st century, but are few and far between these days. They're generally just a gathering of fans who already know each other quite well either from the internet or from previous Animania events (called "Manias" for short).
And yes, that is the same Jay Maynard (E! misspelled his name) who years later would become a minor celebrity as "Tron Guy".
