Plot

The Warners have a grand day out at an art museum. They become particularly intrigued with Athena Oddstankovic, an artist who puts herself on display.

Crew

  • Written by Kathleen Chen and Brian Polk
  • Directed by Brett Varon

Notes

  • Modest Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition - Promenade 1 - Gnomus" is the title card music for this cartoon. The tune is a recurring one in the Animaniacs franchise and was most famously used in "Hooked on a Ceiling" from the original series.
  • Daffy Duck makes a cameo appearance in this cartoon; serving as a model for a painting.
    • The painter appears to be a caricature of the late Looney Tunes animator Friz Freleng.
    • When Daffy appears, "Merrily We Roll Along" (the Merrie Melodies theme tune) plays.
  • Wakko being used as a lifting tool by Yakko echoes a similar measuring gag from "Garage Sale of the Century".
  • Dot compares Ms. Oddstankovich's transformation into an art piece to the Transformers franchise of alien robots turning into cars, specifically the film series adaptation (which also happens to star Jess Harnell and Frank Welker).
  • The various artists that the Warners befriended are:
    • Vincent Van Gogh
    • Yayoi Kusama
    • Salvador Dalí
    • Jean-Michel Basquiat
    • Andy Warhol
    • The Warners also turn into Banksy, an unknown street artist.
  • The Warners' transformation into Banksy is a parody of the liquid-metal shape-shifting from Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

Know Your Scroll

Plot

The Warners struggle to find something to watch on Webpix during the "Golden Age" of television. The cartoon ends showing a group of kids watching the segment and deciding to pass on the series as it is "way too meta."

Crew

  • Written by James Butler
  • Directed by Brett Varon

Notes

  • "WebPix" is a parody of the streaming channel Netflix, a channel which streamed the original Animaniacs in the US from 2016-2017 (and made a failed bid to stream the Animaniacs reboot).
    • Wakko is about to mention the actual "Netflix" name just before Yakko cuts him off.
  • One of the movies available is Brain's movie "A Beautiful Brain" from "Future Brain."
  • The title of the reality dating show, Dates on a Plane, is a parody of the movie Snakes on a Plane.
  • The narrator of one of the WebPix trailers was voiced by Jon Bailey, who is well known for being the announcer for Honest Trailers (and does recurring voices for the Animaniacs reboot).
  • After watching the fictitious film The Too Much, Dot mentions that an American remake is on the way starring Tilda Swinton as "the computer tea was spilled on."
