A British presenter attempts to do a serious documentary about Windsor Castle in Britain and the damage it suffered following the fire in 1992. However, the kids at home would rather see a cartoon. The Warners work with the queen of England to restore Windsor Castle after the 1992 fire. After the commercial break, the Queen's mother attempts to do the documentary again, but an anvil falls on her.
- Written by Lisa Malone, Kate Donohue and Paul Rugg
- Directed by Alfred Gimeno, Jon McClenahan and Jeff Siergey
- Prince Charles and Princess Diana are shown blowing raspberries at each other, a reference to their well-publicized feuding (which eventually lead to their divorce in 1996).
- The cafeteria scene features cameos from Elvis and Granny.
- The Queen Mum is most likely modeled after Owen Lift's mother from the Danny DeVito film, "Throw Momma from the Train."
- The "Hello Nurse!" catchphrase is redone as "Hello Queen!".
...And Justice for Slappy
Animation by StarToons
- This episode is a parody of the Japanese film Rashomon, in which the murder of a samurai is recounted by three different people, but with their events recounted differently.
- In Skippy's memory, Walter says, "Who says you have to be a coyote to set traps?", a reference to Wile E. Coyote, who often used defective traps from the ACME corporation to attempt to catch the Road Runner.
- Writer John McCann provides the voice of Walter's grandson and lawyer, Stephen Wolf.
