    • Some background titles are unclear.
    • A Nightmare on Elm Street is probably not seen but Freddy Kruegger appears in the end.
  • The film Who Framed Roger Rabbit, was co-produced by Spielberg.
  • The sign says, "Animaniacs - Guess Who's #1! New episode at 8pm". New episodes premiered at 4pm. This might be a reference to episode 48, which was a Thanksgiving Weekend episode, thus premiering on November 24, 1993 at 8:00pm.
  • This segment may be a "parody" of a 1946 cartoons starring Daffy Duck entitled Book Revue as well as other musical cartoons from the late '30s which featured book covers coming to life.
    • Daffy himself makes an appearance.
  • There's a poster for X-Toons (a parody of X-Men) outside the store.
  • On the Awakenings video, Robert De Niro references his other movie Taxi Driver.


  • Baby Plucky and Daffy Duck are seen on the cover of The Mighty Ducks, but when they are on the cover of Duck Soup, Plucky is suddenly his pre-teen self.
  • When Yakko enters the Star Wars video, the Death Star appears as it appeared in A New Hope, but when it is shown up close, it's the second Death Star from Return of the Jedi.

When Mice Ruled the Earth


Written by Gordon Bressack
Directed by Greg Reyna

Animation by Tokyo Movie Shinsha, Ltd.


Pinky and the Brain use H.G. Wells' time machine to travel to prehistoric eras to take over the world.


Wheel of Morality


Dot and Wakko do not want to do the Wheel of Morality again, until Yakko mentions that it was Fox's idea to do it.

The moral of today's story is: WIN A FREE TRIP TO TAHITI!!!!!

The Goodbye Song

Animation by Tokyo Movie Shinsha, Ltd.

Instead of the chase ending, the Warners and Ralph go onto a stage to sing a parody of Carol Burnett's "I'm So Glad We've Had This Time Together".
