Dot's Entertainment

Animation by Akom Film Production



Desperate for a performer to sing in his new show, hot-shot musical "mastermind" Andy Lloud Webby hires Dot to perform in her show; and she later brings-in her brothers. In typical Warner fashion, the Warners essentially turn the musical upside-down.




  • Andy Lloud Webby is a parody of Andrew Lloyd Webber.
  • After Andy Lloud Webby says "How about That Girl?" Dot stars in a parody of the title sequence from the show of the same name.
  • The title card is a parody of the logo for another of Lloyd Webber's musicals, Cats.
  • The musical in the short, Cats of Phantom Boulevard, is a mashup of several Andrew Lloyd Webber musicals: Cats, The Phantom of the Opera, and Sunset Boulevard.
  • The Warners also parody scenes and songs from Lloyd Webber's Evita and Rodgers & Hammerstein's Sound of Music.
  • It's a parody of the MGM film, "That's Entertainment."
  • At the end of the cartoon, Dot says "Dot's all, folks," parodying Porky Pig's famous sign-off.

The Girl with the Googily Goop

Animation by Akom



In this long lost film from the '30s, the Warners are loaned out to a Googi Goop cartoon. In it, the siblings help Googi go to her grandmother's house and battle a whiny censor, Will Hays (who turns out to be the notorious Big Bad Wolf).




  • This cartoon is a dead-on parody of the Betty Boop cartoons, right down to imitating the Fleischers' animation style.
    • The end of the cartoon, where the Warners and Googi jump from their paper into the ink bottle even spoofs the ending to Fleischer cartoons.
  • As the Warners walk down the street, Porky Pig (animated in the old style) passes behind them.
  • Will Hays is a parody of Will H. Hays and his "Hays Code," which affected the actual Betty Boop cartoons.
  • When Dot swoons over Will Hays, her brothers say, "Girls, go fig." This is the first time they actually call Dot out for doing the Hello Nurse routine, something she always does to them.
  • Desirée Goyette, Googi Goop's voice actress, also voiced Betty Boop, the character whom Goop is a parody of, in The Romance of Betty Boop.

Randy Beaman

Animation by StarToons



Colin is chewing bubble gum, which he takes out of his mouth and plays with, and talks about the time Randy Beaman ate lots of carrots.


  • This is the final Randy Beaman cartoon on Animaniacs.
  • This is the only short in the episode not to revolve around Dot.

Gunga Dot

Animation by Wang Film Production



Dot and the entire Animaniacs cast star in this parody of the Rudyard Kipling poem, Gunga Din, as Dot attempts to bring water to the cast.



  • Rita makes her final speaking appearance for this series in this cartoon. All of her future appearances would be silent until the movie Wakko's Wish in 1999.

Production Notes
