Dot: Here's the show's name-y...
We hear the sound of a toilet flushing. As we pan down on the tower, a small door unscrews itself with water coming out of each hole. As the door opens, we see the Warners in scuba gear running out of the tower.

Dr. Scratchansniff, Ralph, and Hello Nurse are chasing the Warners. The Warners decided to hide in, and rudely disrupt, a piano recital.
Yakko Warner, Wakko Warner, Dot Warner, Ralph the Guard, Hello Nurse, Dr. Scratchansniff, Tympannini, Rita (walk-through), Runt (walk-through)
According to composer Steve Bernstein, the piano concerto was written after the animation was all done, making it more difficult to compose.
(After Tympannini breaks his piano, the Warners hold up lit matches like a rock concert)
Yakko: Very Pete Townsend-esque.
The Warners: WHO! WHO! WHO! WHO! WHO!
Wakko: (to Tympannini) Hey, mister! Pull a rabbit of your pants!
Dr. Scratchansniff: Hmph. Your mother used Pampers.
Yakko: Goodbye, nurse!
Ralph: (To Yakko) Duh, got ya!
Yakko: (To Ralph) Duh, not!
"You can't catch us, we're the Warners three!" "But where are the Warner Brothers?"
When Rita Met Runt (406-604)

Synopsis Rita, an independent and hippy cat, is given to the city pound by her owner, a woman who recently went through a divorce. Runt, a big and rather stupid dog, is also thrown in the pound by his owner after the family regretted getting a big dog that was a menace and impossible to house train. The cat and dog are put in different cells next to each other, but, since they can't see each other, they both think that they are of their species.
As they feel their luck begin to fade as they'd be put to sleep if no one wants them, Rita sings of the woes she suffered as a house cat, and how when she was a kitten she was adored and pampered, only to later be held in disregard as she got less cute. She is about to escape when the thought of leaving Runt behind plays on her mind. When his cell is unlocked and Runt comes out, Rita horrifically realises that he is a dog, and Runt thinks Rita is also a dog. When she mentions cats, Runt simply shows a hatred for the species while continuing to think that Rita is part of his own.
Runt carries Rita out the pound and down the street at night. Rita tries to make out that she'll eventually abandon Runt when they find homes each, but the big dog is too busy playing and running down the road carrying a new friend on his back.
First episode and prologue of Rita and Runt.
Runt's voice is modeled after Dustin Hoffman's character in Rain Man.
The Warners are seen dancing outside the pound with umbrellas in a parody of the title song from Singin' in the Rain.

The Warners get back up to the Water Tower using a barber chair. When Ralph pulls the lever, a sandbag falls out of nowhere. The Warners shrug and go back into the tower.
