Dot's Poetry Corner

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.

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.

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. Enough said.

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.
