Yakko: "Presidential campaign-y..."

My Mother the Squirrel


Written by Tom Ruegger
Directed by Charles Visser


Little Blue Bird from the cartoon "Wild Blue Yonder" returns, only this time, he mistakes Slappy for his mother.


  • Wakko makes a cameo while Skippy utters Yakko's catchphrase "Goodnight everybody!" at some point in this segment.
  • The title is a parody of the 1960's sitcom My Mother the Car.

The Party


Written by Paul Rugg
Directed by Charles Visser


The Warners invite everyone they know for a fancy party, including Thaddeus Plotz, who is under the impression that Steven Spielberg will be there.


  • This segment originally aired as part of The WB's New Year's Eve Bash on December 31, 1995.
  • The episode title shares the same name as the episode title in three shows: Robot and Monster, The Amazing World of Gumball, and That's So Raven (albeit pluralized).
  • Paul Rugg makes a cameo in a visual gag. Plotz reminds the Warners he told them not to sneak up on him, to which Yakko replies: "Yeah, but you never told the writers." The scene then cuts to Rugg explaining what the audience just saw to the other writer and they both howl with laughter.
  • Plotz's date to the party is comedienne Jo Anne Worley, best known for her work on the sketch comedy series Rowan and Martin's Laugh-Inn (1968-1973)..
  • While trying to find a date for the party, Plotz attempts to ask out actress and model Connie Sellecca (who is married to John Tesh), singer Minnie Riperton (who passed away in 1979), tennis player Evonne Goolagong and convicted criminal Lynette "Squeakie" Fromme.
  • Steven Puttner, the fictional Animaniacs fan from the segment Please Please Please Get A Life Foundation is who the guest of honor turns out to be.
  • The song Wakko belches is Las Chiapanecas.

Oh Say Can You See?


Written by Nicholas Hollander

The Flame returns to witness Francis Scott Key write the poem "Defence of Fort McHenry," which would later better be known as the lyrics to the American national anthem, "The Star-Spangled Banner".


The Twelve Days of Christmas

Our Version Of History

Is The Correct One


Yakko, Wakko & Dot: AAAHHH!! NEWT GINGRICH IS RIGHT BEHIND YOU!!!!! AAAHHH!! Just kidding. [laugh]


  • This stinger is a redubbed version of the "Horrible Bug on Your Shoulder" stinger.
  • This stinger also references Newt Gingrich, a conservative political figure and the subject of a deleted musical episode called "Dear Mister Gingrich"
