Wakko: Chicken chow mein-y...
Cartoons in Wakko's Body 1
Wakko complains of having a headache. Yakko discovers that Wakko has a cartoon stuck in his ear.
Akom Film Production
Hip Hippos pester Noah on his ark, while believing it to be a cruise ship.
Noah's look, speech and mannerisms are a caricature of comedian
Richard Lewis. In an interview with The Nostalgia Critic, the writers admitted that Lewis was jokingly critical towards this impersonation. His agent called the show's staff to say that while they had found the cartoon "very funny", they requested that the crew try not to steal all of his material next time. When Noah asks what is an ark, Indiana Jones appears to explain the Ark of the Covenant, as well as giving away the ending to
Raiders of the Lost Ark. The Indiana Jones films were directed by series producer Steven Spielberg. The comparison Indiana Jones makes to Noah's ark is accurate. Ark is Hebrew for "box" or "chest", not "ship".
When Indiana Jones is being chased away by Hovito Indians (Bushmen), the music is an instrumental version of the theme song to
Taz-Mania! ("Down in Tazmania")
Buster and Babs Bunny (no relation) from make a cameo appearance, as does the Wolverine from the same show. Tiny Toon Adventures Pinky and the Brain also appear. The Warners also make a cameo at the end. Squit plays the role of the dove who brings back the olive tree leaf.
The narrator is voiced by Ernie Anderson, who was best known for his time as announcer for the ABC network. He even parodies the way he announces "The Love Boat" as "the looooooooooove ark."
Noah also says, "Where's Gavin MacLeod when you need him?" MacLeod played Captain Stubing on The Love Boat.
Cartoons in Wakko's Body 2
Animation by StarToons
Wakko complains he's got something in his eye.
Dot sees that the next cartoon is in his eye.
The Big Kiss
Animation by Akom
In perhaps his most convincing disguise yet,
Chicken Boo poses as the "sexiest actor in Hollywood" (Goodnight everybody!) filming a major kiss scene with an actress who resembles Hello Nurse.
This short introduces a new introductory sequence. It begins the same way the original did, with Chicken Boo roosting in the barnyard, but instead of the
Brady Bunch-style collage of his disguises, he simply looks at his disguises in a mirror. The " Chicken Boo Theme" is mostly unchanged. The Warners and Ralph continue their literal running gag outside the soundstage.

Wakko complains of a toothache, and Yakko
sees that the next cartoon is in Wakko's mouth.
Wang Film Production
Squit has a bad case of the hiccups after eating a bread crumb, so Pesto and Bobby attempt to get rid of them.
Written by Deanna Oliver
Directed by Greg Reyna and Dave Marshall
During the beginning of the short, caricatures of Dustin Hoffman (from
Marathon Man), David Letterman, Macaulay Culkin, Joe Pesci, and Daniel Stern from Home Alone 2: Lost in New York can be spotted. After mistakenly thinks he's been cured, Squit calls Pesto "Doc", which is often a diminutive form of "doctor", but Pesto, being the short-tempered guy he is, mistakenly believes he's referring to one of the Seven Dwarfs.
In the end, Squit says the three are like The Three Musketeers, but due to the reference Pesto makes to The Mickey Mouse Club, he confuses it for "mouseketeers".
The synopsis for this episode on
Hulu erroneously identifies Pesto as the one with hiccups. The duodenum is actually the part of the small intestine that connects to the stomach.
There is actually no common cure for the hiccups, except patience.
Cartoons in Wakko's Body Conclusion
Animation by StarToons
Yakko and Dot do their presentation to the press on Wakko's pains recapping what happened to him throughout the entire episode. After asking him how he feels, Wakko replies that his bottom hurts. Yakko simply looks at the camera and says, "Mwah, goodnight, everybody!"
Despite doing all the linking segments, StarToons is unbilled for their work.
