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

Miami Mama-Mia

Animation by Akom Film Production



Pesto's mother is about to remarry, but Pesto does not want a new stepfather.



  • The music playing during the dolphin sequence is a parody of "Will You Be There" by Michael Jackson, which was the theme from the film Free Willy.
  • MerMindy and Buttons the Dogfish (as seen in "Mermaid Mindy") make a cameo after Pesto is in the belly of a shark.
  • Steven Seagull is voiced by David Kaufman, who would later voice Dexter Douglas on Freakazoid! a year after this episode aired, Jimmy Olsen in "Superman: The Animated Series" and the titular character in the Butch Hartman cartoon, "Danny Phantom" from 2004 to 2007.
    • Steven Seagull's name is a pun on action star, Steven Seagal.
    • Despite never again reappearing in the series physically, Steven Seagull of all characters is among the many original series characters mentioned by Yakko in the Animaniacs reboot cartoon "Good Warner Hunting" as having been notable enough to have his absence noticed.


Mime Time


Animation by TMS

Today on Mime Time

Riding an imaginary subway.

The Mime gets beat up by three strangers and stripped of all his clothes.

Then he steps on something sharp and hops around in pain.


  • This is one of the only times the Mime is ever given a voice.

Pigeon on the Roof

Animation by Akom Film Production



The Goodfeathers and Girlfeathers star in a parody of Fiddler on the Roof as they tackle relationship problems and the drama revolving around the possibility if the Godpigeon can no longer lead the Goodfeathers. Songs include "Sasha, Squit," a parody of "Sunrise, Sunset."




  • This cartoon reveals Pesto's own ambitions to potentially lead the Goodfeathers.
  • The Godpigeon scaring the Goodfeathers echoes a similar gag from the episode "Hiccup."


Animation by Wang Film Productions Co., Ltd.



Pesto did not like the last cartoon, but Bobby sings him a song that parodies "Cool" from West Side Story to cheer him up.


  • Written by Deanna Oliver

Wheel of Morality


Animated by Tokyo Movie Shinsha
