The Mime gets attacked by a swarm of bees.

O Silly Mio


Written by Randy Rogel and Paul Rugg
Directed by Gary Hartle, Audu Paden and Dave Marshall

Animation by Wang Film Production


After their stained glass window of Weed Memlo, their first director, is destroyed by an operatic prima donna's high notes, the Warners get revenge on her during her performance of Carmen.


  • This cartoon is an updated version of the classic cartoon Long-Haired Hare, in which Bugs Bunny takes revenge on another snooty opera singer.
  • To quote Bugs Bunny with a twist, Yakko says, 'This means Warner.' instead of This means War.

Puttin' on the Blitz (406-615)


Story by Tom Ruegger and Nicholas Hollander
Written by Nicholas Hollander
Directed by Greg Reyna

Animation by Akom Film Production


In the midst of the Nazi invasion of Poland, Rita and Runt go along with a little girl on her own named Katrina who's trying to avoid the enemy and reunite with her father. Rita saves her by fighting and frightening away an aggressive hound. Katrina decides to adopt them both after finding her father.

In the end, Katrina and her father are reunited (which Rita and Runt previously doubted would happen) and escape Poland via train. While Rita and Runt chase to get on, the hound shows up and Runt stops him from attacking Rita again, unfortunately causing him to miss the train while Rita is on bored with a new family. However, Rita jumps from the train right at the last moment, leaving Katrina and her father and stays with Runt.


  • The cartoon's setting likely references the Jewish Holocaust that occurred during World War II.
  • Newt, from the first Minerva Mink cartoon, appears as the non-speaking dachsund.
  • Katrina is voiced by a very young Elisabeth Moss, now best known for her work on TV's Mad Men.
  • The Warners cameo doing their train imitation from "The Big Candy Store" at the train station.
