Just like in Episode 82, the usual Kids' WB!-era "We pay tons of income tax!" was used instead of "While Bill Clinton plays the sax."
An airing of this episode on LaSiete (formerly known as Telecinco 2) accidently used the Bill Clinton footage in the extended intro.
Cutie and the Beast
The Warners star in a parody of the classic Disney film with Taz the Tasmanian Devil in the role of the Beast. Contains an introductory sequence of outtakes where Dot gets her full name wrong several times.
The Warners reprise the "Do the funny thing that you do" routine, which was first seen in the Tiny Toon Adventures episode segment "It's All Relatives" from the episode "Pledge Week."
The off-screen director in the opening bloopers is voiced by casting director and voice director Andrea Romano.
In one of the bloopers, after Dot messes up her name again, she asks Yakko to say it, which he does perfectly. Dot replies with, "Oh, thank you, Mr. United States Canada Mexico Panama! Big whoop!" Those are, of course, the first four countries of "Yakko's World."
When aired on Nickelodeon, the scene where Yakko and Wakko ask Taz to "do the funny thing that you do" was cut. However, the punchline with Taz blowing a raspberry and Yakko and Wakko saying "That's the funny thing!" was left in.
This is the only cartoon to get bleeped, albeit as part of the show.
The blond sailor bares a striking resemblance to Lucky Bob from Histeria!, which premiered two years later. Both characters were caricatures of Tiny Toons crew member Dan McQ.
After the Warners bid everyone goodnight, the credits roll and, a la Mystery Science Theatre 3000, they make cracks at all the people listed in the credits, including their own voice actors.
Names By Our Parents
Reading small print can lead to eye strain. Visit your optometrist regularly. And for that matter, don't forget to go to the dentist at least every six months. If not, you might get cavities or gingivitis or nasty gum disease. As for me, I've got a toothache right now that's killing me, so don't make the mistake I did. See a dentist! (And try using some mouth wash now & then, okay?) And remember to brush after every meal, and floss once a day.
This has been ANIMANIACS episode #84. Upcoming are episodes #85, #86, #87, #88, and #89. And don't forget about show #90! Another good show you can look forward to is show #91! If you'd like even more episodes of ANIMANIACS, write to Jamie Kellner, c/o KIDS' WB and say "We want more ANIMANIACS. His home phone # is [REDACTED].
This is the final original Animaniacs segment to be animated by Tokyo Movie Shinsha. TMS' final contribution to the franchise would be the movie Wakko's Wish, 3 years later.
This is the third time the Water Tower doesn’t appear in the credits sequence, with the second instance being the previous episode.
Another title for this segment is "Cold Ending #1."
In some syndicated airings, the part where Dot asks Yakko about turning off the mics is not shown, and instead they say, "Uh-oh!" after Wakko says, "Sue me!" and Dot says, "She will."
When the credits begin rolling, Yakko comments that he's "got a headache this big, and it's got 'Warner Bros.' written all over it!" This is a reference to a catchphrase for Excedrin commercials: "I've got a headache this big and it's got 'Excedrin' written all over it." This catchphrase was previously referenced by Dr. Scratchansniff in "Taming of the Screwy."
