Hot, Bothered and Bedeviled (406-741)


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

Animation by Tokyo Movie Shinsha, Ltd.


The Warners end up in the fiery realm of Hades, where they torment Satan.


  • The opening song is a parody of "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" by the Andrews Sisters.
  • The Warners' song is a parody of "California, Here I Come," which is unusual since the song is published by the Warner Music Library.
  • Ron Perlman reprises his role as Satan (or Mr. Scratch) from the Tiny Toon Adventures special "Night Ghoulery" segment "Daniel Webfoot."
  • Wakko gets a snowball and sees it melt. Afterward he says, "They were right, it didn't have a chance!" This is a play on the old phrase "a snowball's chance in Hell."
  • The clip of Yakko saying, "Come on! Do one! Do an impression!" is used in the opening of Rob Paulsen's podcast "Talking Toons".
  • This short was close to being banned because of its depiction of hell and the devil.
  • The hippie singing the 'whiney protest song' is a caricature of legendary singer/songwriter Bob Dylan.

Moon Over Minerva


Written by Nicholas Hollander
Directed by Alfred Gimeno

Animation by Akom Film Production


Minerva Mink walks into the woods, attracting many male animals along the way, and finds a spot to write in her diary on her progress on finding her special someone. She writes that she finds it very unfair to not find someone to shrare life's tender moments with. Then, a nerdy wolf named Wilford B. Wolf approches and tries to win the heart of Minerva Mink, but fails with every attempt he makes. Later that night, Wilford howls in sarrow over his failure to attract Minerva, until the full moon comes out and transforms him into a hunky werewolf, attracting many female animals. Annoyed by Wilford's howling, Minerva decides to put a stop to it, only to witness Wilford's manly form, and falls head over heels in love with him. Minerva heads back to change into a red dress, and the clouds cover up the moon, reducing Wilford back to his nerdy form behind Minerva's back. When she returns, she shows off her red dress, and notices that Wilford's changed back to his nerdy form. Minerva tries to find out what happened to Wilford's manly form by searching for him, only to realize he's nowhere in sight, making her feel lonely. When the clouds move away to reveal the moon again, Minerva sighs "What a life" to herself, when she sees Wilford's turned back into a hunk, satisfying her. Wilford, using the same attractive pick up lines Minerva used on him earlier, makes Minerva excited. All the while, clouds move throughout the night, with Wilford slipping back and forth between both nerdy and manly forms. By sunrise, Wilford's back to being his nerdy form. Wanting an explination for what's going on, Minerva asks what kind of wolf Wilford is. Wilford says he's a werewolf, making Minerva curious as to when the next full moon is. To Wilford's calculations, a full moon comes around every 28 days. The episode then ends with Minerva saying "Some things are worth waiting for".


  • This was actually the second Minerva cartoon, Thus making it the last Minerva Mink cartoon.
  • In the original version of this cartoon, Minerva's cleavage was a little too revealing in her close-up shots, so the animators painted out the cleavage line in the close-ups. However, if you look really close on the DVD, you can see where her cleavage was painted out.
  • Like Minerva, Wilford's manly werewolf form seems to attract all the female animals.
    • Made a girl rabbit dig a hole to china
    • Made a girl bird's neck spring out, and her eyes pop-out
    • Made a girl frog dance for him and accidently kick the boy frog away
  • The frog's dancing is a parody of Michigan J. Frog's "Hello my baby" dance from the Chuck Jones cartoon One Froggy Evening.
  • After Wilford attempts to serenade Minerva, Minerva yells, "Hit the road, Jack!", possibly being a reference to the Ray Charles song of the same name.

Skullhead Boneyhands


Written by Deanna Oliver
Directed by Michael Gerard

Animation by Akom


In a parody of the movie Edward Scissorhands, Mr. Skullhead is taken in by an average looking family to stay with them.
