Yakko: Miss Cellany...

You Risk Your Life


Written by Paul Rugg
Directed by Alfred Gimeno

Animation by Akom Film Production


Yakko hosts and Dr. Scratchansniff announces for a parody of the classic Groucho Marx game/talk show "You Bet Your Life" in front of stock footage of a live-action audience. The contestants are Mrs. Myra Puntridge and Aristotle. The secret word is "Yes", and if you say it, Wakko smashes you on the head with a mallet.


  • Mrs. Myra Puntridge is actually Emily Duff from the Elmyra Duff Family episodes of Tiny Toon Adventures.
  • When the title was on Netflix, this segment and the theme song were missing. The episode began with the normal WB logo opening and jumped right to Slappy’s intro.
  • Modern Major General from The Pirates of Penzance is heard often times.

I Got Yer Can


Written by Sherri Stoner
Directed by Alfred Gimeno

A discarded soda can sparks an escalating, one-sided battle of wits between Slappy and her neighbor, Candie Chipmunk.


  • The Dance of the Reed Flutes is BGM in this cartoon.
  • This cartoon is based on a true story. Sherri Stoner moved to a new neighborhood, and she was throwing away her Diet Coke can into another neighbor's bin, but her neighbor asked Sherri to use her own bin.
  • The game show that Candie appears on is a parody of Let's Make a Deal. The Warners make a cameo and do their "Hello, Nurse!" routine.
  • At one point, Candie types endlessly on a typewriter "All work and no cans make Candie a dull chipmunk," a parody of the "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" scene from the film The Shining.
  • Skippy says his catchphrase, "Spew!" for the first time.
  • When she first meets Candie, Slappy says, "Allen Funt is a dead man!" In other words, she briefly believes that she is on Candid Camera, the prank show hosted by Funt.
  • The game show is hosted by Blink Winkleman, a semi-recurring character from Tiny Toon Adventures and it is also a parody of the game show Let's Make a Deal.
  • Each time Candie gets the can back, a five-note melody entitled "You're a Horse's Ass" can be heard. This melody is best remembered as the opening music for the Private Snafu shorts during WWII.


Slappy: [about Candie] She reminds me of a very young Wilma Flintstone.

Jockey for Position


Written by Peter Hastings
Directed by Lenord Robinson and Dave Marshall

Animation by Wang Film Production


Pinky and the Brain race in the Kentucky Derby to win money for their next plan to take over the world.


  • First appearance of Phar Fignewton.
  • When Pinky is knocked off a horse, he dizzily says, "There's baloney in our slacks..." one of the lines of the theme song.
  • The shot of Pinky running on the globe would later be used in the title sequence for the Pinky and the Brain spin-off.


The Brain: Tomorrow is the running of the Kentucky Derby. Do you know what that is?
Pinky: Um, a very large hat?
The Brian: Promise me something, Pinky, never breed.
Pinky: I'll try.
Pinky: Can't we just ride the pretty one?
[Referring to Phar Fignewton]
The Brain: Good heavens, they're mulitplying!
The Brain: Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering?
Pinky: I think so, Brain, but, uh, isn't Regis Philbin already married?
