Yakko, Wakko & Dot: (spoken) How urbane-y...

Tower Escape

Animation by Tokyo Movie Shinsha, Ltd.

The Warners escape the water tower by giant bubble.

No Pain, No Painting (406-722)


Written by Peter Hastings
Directed by Alfred Gimeno and Dave Marshall

Animation by Wang Film Production


The Warners audition as models for noted painter Pablo Picasso, who is attempting to find a new style of painting.


  • Picasso speaks with a French accent in the cartoon, probably because the animators mistaken the fact he worked in France as his citizenship. In actuality, Picasso was a native of Spain.


Dot: I would be a great model. What does Christie Brinkley have that I don't have?
Yakko and Wakko: Billy Joel?
Yakko: Did you know there's "P.P" on your smock?"
Dot: Disgusting!
Pablo Picasso: No, no! P.P. stands for Pablo Picasso!
Pablo Picasso: I painted these in my Blue Period and these in my Rose Period.
Yakko: What is next, your Plaid Period?
Dot is dressed in a tartan
Dot: Plaid? Yah, I can do plaid!

Les Miseranimals

Les Miseranimals to the second episode of Rita and Runt.


Written by Deanna Oliver
Directed by Gary Hartle & Rich Arons

Animation by Tokyo Movie Shinsha, Ltd.


In France, Runt is captured by the Pound (he was set up and wrongly accused of stealing a bone from a guard dog, Camenbert) and Rita is captured along with many other cats by a restaurant that serves no meat. The chef of the restaurant, Tristesse quickly plans to repair his restaurant’s reputation by making all his cats part of a new recipe. The other stray cats (a slightly pudgy yellow cat, an orange cat with dark red stripes, a Tonkinese and a gray/beige kitten in particular) are soon praying for Rita to be put in the recipe.

As Rita waits for her end, it turns out that Runt has escaped the pound and is coming to the rescue with a pack of poodles. During and even after the rescue, Tristesse and Camenbert turn up and attempt to inference, but both meet their comeuppance when Tristesse accidentally causes the pen he kept the stray cats in to collapse next to Camenbert and with him inside. After that, Rita, Runt, the cats and the poodles freely move on to Paris.


  • I, Camenbert (Camenbert)
  • At The End Of My Fork (Tristesse and customers, to the tune of "At the End of the Day" from Les Misérables)
  • Look At Rita! (Kitty Dukockis, Cat Ballue, Kitty Litter and unidentified kitten, to the tune of "Lovely Ladies" from Les Misérables)
  • Flat In Gay Paree (Rita, to the tune of "Castle on a Cloud" from Les Misérables)
  • I Am Definitely Runt (Runt, to the tune of "Who Am I?" from Les Misérables)
  • Rita and Runt (Rita and Runt, to the tune of "Red and Black" (first) and "A Little Fall of Rain" (second) from Les Misérables)
  • Do You Hear The Poodles Bark? (Runt and Poodles, to the tune of "Do You Hear the People Sing?" from Les Misérables)
  • Dig Down (Rita, Runt, Poodles and Cats, to the tune of "Look Down" from Les Misérables)
  • Bitten In The Butt (Tristesse, to the tune of "Master of the House" from Les Misérables)
  • Runt and Camenbert (Runt and Camenbert, to the tune of "The Confrontation" from Les Misérables)
  • At The End Of The Road (Rita, Runt, Poodles and Cats, to the tune of "At the End of the Day" from Les Misérables)


  • Parody of the hit musical Les Misérables.
  • The cats sing "Oh dear God, we're living with a Sweeney Todd". This is a reference to Sweeney Todd, the demon barber of Fleet Street, of British folklore who would cut the throats of those he shaved and make them into pies. He would later be immortalized in the Stephen Sondheim musical of the same name.
  • This is the first episode of Rita and Runt where Runt sings.

Chase Ending

Animation by Tokyo Movie Shinsha, Ltd.

The Warners return to the water tower using a flip switch from Wakko's gag bag. When the switch is flipped down, an escalator comes out of the tower. When Ralph flips the switch back up, an anvil falls on his head. The Warners shrug and go back into the tower.
