The Apology

The Warners apologize to the internet in a TubeSpace video, but forget why they're apologizing halfway through. They then remember they called Ralph a silly goose, which offended a lot of geese and question why they're apologizing. They then decide that they stand by their quote and begin to relax as dislikes on their video soar.

  • TubeSpace is a parody of the website YouTube.
  • This cartoon is a parody of "apology" videos put out by influencers, which are usually desperate attempts to fix their images.

Narf Over Troubled Water

Animation by Titmouse

Narf Over Troubled Water Title.jpg


In the 1960's, Brain concocts a new plan that requires black-and-white television sets and music to hypnotize the people. His computer creates a surefire popular tune with the intention of performing it on The Ed Sullivan Show. He and Pinky become a musical duo; "Brain and Narfunkel" to popularize their song and gain the adoration of the public.

  • Being a 1960s' period-piece, Acme Labs appears in its original design before its 2020 renovation.
  • The ending is a spoof of The Graduate, which featured the music of Simon and Garfunkel.
  • The music at the end is "Scarborough Fair", which is a public domain song covered by Simon and Garfunkel.
  • The title of this segment parodies "Bridge Over Troubled Water."

The Warners check out archival footage from their careers.


  • Written by Wellesley Wild and Jess Lacher
  • Directed by Katie Rice


  • Like "Everyday Safety", this cartoon is a parody of vintage educational PSAs.
  • The 1972 short is a parody of the Christian animated series, Jot the Dot.
  • The premise of this cartoon is possibly a callback to a throwaway line in "Newsreel of the Stars."
  • A Yakko parody of Steamboat Willie in the montage of the Warners' cartoons says it was made in 1929, the original year the Warners were created in the original series.
  • The episode "Of Course, You Know This Means Warners" is referenced in the montage.
  • This is the first time that the Warners' past is acknowledged in the reboot (not counting the intro).
