The Warners sing of all five senses, as well as other "senses" as the song becomes more bizarre and non
The dance that the Warners perform at the beginning would be used as their idle animation in
the SNES game. This is one of a few shorts where
Wakko's red baseball cap is off. Ralph appears as a toll collector, Hello Nurse is a census taker and Rita appears in a kitty box outside an imaginary room. Scratchansniff appears as the unfortunate lumberjack.
Pinky and the Brain make a brief cameo in the song, in the cemetery.
The song itself is in the style of an Italian tarantella.

The World Can Wait
Akom Film Production
The Brain puts taking over the world on hold as he is in love with a lab mouse named Billie, however, she shares the personality traits of Pinky, so Pinky helps Brain talk to her a la Cyrano de Bergerac.
The scene of Brain and Pinky checking on Billie would be used in the intro for the
. Pinky and the Brain spinoff This cartoon marks the debut of Billie, who would make a few more appearances in the spin-off series and DC
and Animaniacs Pinky and the Brain comics. The character of Billie is modeled after the character Billie Dawn from the film and stage play Born Yesterday. This is the first Pinky and The Brain episode that does not involve the mice trying to take over the world.
