Animation by Tokyo Movie Shinsha Co., Ltd.


  • An extended version of the Newsreel seen in the first episode with extra scenes and dialogue.

Theme song


Last line

Dot: Here's the show's namey...


In the original airing of this episode, the last line is changed to "Chicken chow meiny". 

Dot's Poetry Corner

DotOutS.gifDot recites her rather morbid interpretation of "Mary Had a Little Lamb," called "Requiem for a Lamb." It is only 1 sentence long: "Mary had a little lamb with mint jelly."

Mobster Mash


Written by Nicholas Hollander
Directed by Greg Reyna and Dave Marshall

Animation by Wang Film Production


The Warners pester a mafia don (a parody of The Godfather) in an Italian restaurant because mafia tried to take the booth the Warners had been sitting in just because it was his booth.


  • The episode's title is a pun on that of the 1962 novelty song "Monster Mash".
  • The Godfather is satirized throughout the whole segment.
  • The Goodfeathers appears in a cameo.
  • The song about Italian food The WB Kids sing parodies Rossini's famous Tarantella.
  • Dot's pet appears.
  • When the Godfather threatens the Warners with "sleeping with the fishes", Wakko asks if Jimmy Hoffa is there, a reference to Hoffa's disappearance.

Goofs and Inconsistencies

  • Throughout most of the cartoon, the Warners refer to spaghetti as "psketti" even though they actually used the correct word during their song at the beginning.
  • The restaurant is called Mario Puzzo's, although it is actually spelled "Puzo", with one Z.

Mime Time


Today on Mime Time: Lifting an imaginary barbell.

An anvil falls on The Mime.

Lake Titicaca

Music by Richard Stone
Lyrics by Tom Ruegger

Animation by Tokyo Movie Shinsha, Ltd.


The Warners sing a song about Lake Titicaca...probably the naughtiest song ever sung on Animaniacs.

Randy Beaman


Colin walks out of the house all wet wearing nothing but a towel and talks about how Randy Beaman's cat eating a fish. Before he walks into the house, his towel falls down exposing his rear end.

Yakko: (o.s.) Goodnight, Elvis.

Elvis: (o.s.) Thank you very much, but I don't want anyone to know I'm here.


  • This stinger as well as the John Boy stinger is a parody of the end of every episode of The Waltons.
