Deduces Wild


Written by Sib Ventress
Directed by Liz Holzman


The Warners pester Sherlock Holmes and Watson into joining their scavenger hunt.


  • Among the items on the Warners' scavenger hunt list are:
    • Princess Di in a leotard: A reference an incident where members of the paparazzi discreetly photographed Diana, Princess of Wales in a health club wearing a leotard, for which they were successfully sued.
    • Prince Charles in a tabloid: A reference to the media frenzy surrounding his and Princess Diana's divorce.
    • A funny episode of "Bonkers": A jab at the Disney Afternoon show.
    • A happy postal worker: A reference to a series of well-publicized shootings by disgruntled postal workers, which inspired the phrase "Going postal".
    • A lock of Yul Brynner's hair: Brynner was an actor best known for appearing in the films The King and I and The Ten Commandments, the joke being that he's bald.
    • Burt Ward's career: Ward is best known for playing Robin in the original 1960s Batman TV series.
    • Batteries: Wakko pulls out Energizer's bunny mascot out of the bag.
    • The Lusitania: A British ocean liner that was sunk by German U-boats in 1915, killing 128 American passengers, and the incident was a major factor in rallying the United States to enter World War I.

Rest in Pieces


Written by Charles M. Howell IV
Directed by Audu Paden


Slappy and Skippy attend the funeral of Walter Wolf seemingly unaware that Walter is actually faking his death to get revenge on Slappy.


  • This cartoon marks the first time Nathan Ruegger's deepening voice was pitch-shifted upward to keep Skippy's voice consistently high.
  • Twice in this cartoon, Slappy and Skippy poke fun at the Disney Afternoon show Bonkers, which is interesting because Yakko also said Bonkers wasn't funny in the previous cartoon, "Deduces Wild".
  • The Warners do a cameo appearance as the funeral ushers before being chased off by Ralph.

U.N. Me


Music: Traditional
Lyrics by John McCann
Directed by Audu Paden


The Warners sing all about the United Nations to the tune of "Down by the Riverside".
