Gold Rush


Written by Randy Rogel
Directed by Michael Gerard and Dave Marshall

Animation by Wang Film Production


The Warners take revenge on a prospector who steals their entire wealth during the 1840s gold rush in California.

Chase Transition

The Warners, followed by Ralph, run past the psychiatry and approach a mailbox. The Warners get inside it, and when Ralph opens it, an elephant comes out of it.


For unknown reasons, this segment is cut on the DVD.

A Gift of Gold


Story by Tom Minton
Written by Nicholas Hollander
Directed by Michael Gerard

Animation by Akom Film Production


A heartwarming tale about a gold wrapping paper. Contains cameos by Mindy, Buttons, and Mindy's Father.


  • The man who spits gum into the gold wrapping paper is wearing a shirt with the words "Local 839" on it. This is the animators union. Also amazingly, the episode number is 406-839. This is referenced in the "Please Please Please Get a Life Foundation" cartoon.
  • The homeless man at the end of the cartoon is the same man from the Chuck Jones cartoon One Froggy Evening.
  • In the Animaniacs "Helloooo Holidays" VHS release, the dialogue was redubbed so that Mindy's Father and the homeless man give their children Christmas presents instead of birthday presents with the wrapping paper.

Dot's Quiet Time


Written by Earl Kress
Directed by Alfred Gimeno and Dave Marshall

Animation by Wang


Dot attempts to find someplace quiet where she can read her book.


  • The Scotsman playing the bagpipes is MacRory from the Bugs Bunny cartoon My Bunny Lies Over the Sea.
  • Even though this is the only cartoon in the episode without any references to the color gold, the theme of the cartoon, as well as the song accompanying it, is "golden silence".
