Trivia

  • Mr. Director is modeled after comedian Jerry Lewis.
  • Clips from this segment would later be used in the show's extended theme song opening.
  • Clips from this segment would later be used in Cartoon Network's rendition of the "Introducing the Warners" song in a promo.
  • In the beginning, the Warners find themselves on the set of a Sound of Music parody.
  • The Warners audition with "Three Little Maids from School are We" from the Gilbert & Sullivan operetta The Mikado.
  • Yakko and Wakko can be briefly seen without whiskers before Mr. Director attempts to greet the "nice people in the TV".
  • In the end, the Warners direct Mr. Director in Old Screamer, a parody of Old Yeller, and Illinois Smith, a parody of Indiana Jones.
  • The Warners say, "Be afraid...be very afraid...", which is a quote from the remake of The Fly.
  • The clip of Yakko saying, "I think we have a difference of opinion here" is used in the opening of Rob Paulsen's podcast, "Talkin' Toons".
  • The scene where the Warners are singing "Three Little Maids" for Mr. Director in the Chinese outfits is cut in international broadcasts (such as Boomerang) due to imitating Chinese people.
  • At the end of the short "La Marseillaise" is heard, in reference to Jerry Lewis's curious popularity in France.
