Guardin' the Garden


Story by Earl Kress and Tom Ruegger
Written by Nicholas Hollander & Sherri Stoner
Directed by Michael Gerard & Chris Brandt

Animation by StarToons


God hires Slappy as guardian of the Garden of Eden to keep the serpent from tempting Adam and Eve with apples from the Tree of Knowledge.


  • Baby Plucky Duck from Tiny Toon Adventures makes a cameo doing a play on his dialogue from the episode segment "Minister Golf".
  • This episode contains many Biblical references, specifically the Book of Genesis.
  • Ernie Anderson, the voice of ABC, returns as the narrator and does a play on his announcements for America's Funniest Home Videos.
  • Skippy doesn't appear in this episode, but Nathan Ruegger voices Baby Plucky.


  • Slappy: [to the serpent] You remind me of a very young Scrappy-Doo.
  • Slappy: Oh, the back door.
  • Serpent: Colonel Mustard did it in the kitchen. (Slappy opens the door and behind it was a cannon which exploded in the Serpent's face) ...Or was it Miss Scarlett?


  • The Snake referenced the board game, Clue.

Plane Pals


Story by Tom Ruegger & John P. McCann
Written by John P. McCann
Directed by Rusty Mills & Kirk Tingblad

Animation by StarToons


Onboard a plane, the Warners annoy a certain tightwad who is forced to sit by them because of a computer error.


  • Wakko says "How about a kiss?" to Bloski when he sits down. This action and Wakko's Scouse accent may reference a scene in the Beatles' film A Hard Day's Night, in which John Lennon says "Give us a kiss!" to a grouchy man on a crowded train.
  • As the plane is waiting to take off, a large sign says, "Runway Condition CROWED! (Isn't It?)"
  • A quote was used in the Animaniacs Talking Cube: "We like you. We have no taste, but we like you."
  • The airline's name, Air Pacific, is the name for a real-life airline based in Fiji. However, the airline renamed itself Fiji Airways in 2014.
  • Dot's pet appears.
  • The fourth time Wakko sitpopped a beach ball.
