Plot

Colin talks of when Randy Beaman's brother ate pop rocks and drank a soda.

Trivia

  • In the original version of this cartoon, Colin is seen running outside with his hands on his crotch, clearly indicating that he has to go to the bathroom really bad. Subsequent releases use footage from Episode 8 in the marshmallow pillow story. The censored version is on the DVD, but the original was seen on The Hub and can be found here at 2:36.
  • Colin's story is based on the urban legend where if you ate pop rocks and drank a soda at the same time, your head would explode after that.

Trivia

  • This episode is a reference to Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
  • The Dr. Jekyll character is the same model for the character used in the 1955 Friz Freleng short Hyde and Hare.
  • During the Big Ben sequence, "Hickory Dickory Dock" can be heard playing mixed with the Pinky and the Brain theme song. The mice would later star in an adaptation of the tune called "Hickory Dickory Bonk" in their spin-off series.
  • The Big Ben bells tolling at the end segue into the Warners singing the ending chorus.

Trivia

  • In production order, this was to be the first Minerva Mink cartoon.
  • One of the messages on Minerva's answering machine is from Fowlmouth from Tiny Toon Adventures, who also mentions Shirley the Loon being out of town.
  • At one point, Newt says, "Oooh, baby, that's what I like!" This is a reference to the Big Bopper's song "Chantilly Lace". Later, Minerva says it when she sees her friend's (on the phone) cousin.
  • Yakko and Wakko make a cameo when they go to Minerva and say “Helloooo, nurse!” to her before Dot takes them away.

Plot

In the winter time, Colin, who is all bundled up, talks about Randy Beaman and his father picking up a female hitchhiker in Kansas and the ending is....kinda spooky. After he tells the story, Colin attempts to walk back to the door, but ends up landing in the snow on his side.
