Trivia

  • 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. (Wakko can't find it.)
    • 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

Plot

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

Crew

Trivia

  • 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 make a cameo appearance as the funeral ushers before being chased off by Ralph.

Goofs

  • Walter is seen sitting in a chair when he is supposed to be in a tomb.

U.N. Me

Crew

  • Lyrics by John McCann
  • Directed by Audu Paden
