Theme Song


Last line

Yakko: Bangor, Mainey...



Written by Earl Kress
Directed by Liz Holzman

Animation by Akom Film Production


Animaniacs does a parody of the 1995 Disney film Pocahontas with Dot as Pocahontas (named Pocadotas),Yakko as Chief Powhatan (named Chief Yakkatan),and Wakko as Kocoum (named Wakkoum)


  • The segment begins with a short animation parodying Disney's Cinderella Castle logo, featuring Dot dressed as Tinkerbell.
  • The entire cast of the sitcom Friends briefly appears.
  • Yakko makes a joke about Wakko's nickname among the tribe being "Slobbers with Wolves," a spoof of the film title Dances with Wolves.
  • When Dot refuses to marry Wakko, Yakko remarks that the story seems familiar. This may be a subtle criticism of the similar plots of Pocahontas and Dances with Wolves, a film that Yakko had referenced seconds before.
  • The Warners sing a song comparing the similar plots of Pocahontas, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin. Dot briefly appears in spoof scenes from each Disney film.
  • Nathan Ruegger's voice had begun to deepen due to puberty, so his voice for Skippy is noticeably electronically pitched up.
  • John Smith is a caricature of Mel Gibson, his voice actor in Disney's Pocahontas. This is why his hair is brown instead of blond and why he speaks and sings in an Australian accent.
  • At one point, John Smith is splattered in the face with blue paint, giving him the war paint Mel Gibson sported in Braveheart when he portrayed William Wallace. When Gibson later describes his past on Yakko's talk show, he is dressed in the Wallace battle outfit.


  • John Smith says that there won't be a sequel to the film. However, Disney did make a sequel to "Pocahontas". It was two years after the airing of this episode.

Boids on the Hood


Written by Lance Falk
Directed by Liz Holzman

Animation by Wang


The Goodfeathers get run over by Thaddeus Plotz's car, so they have their revenge by tormenting Ralph, who is waxing the car. The Goodfeathers also make Ralph destroy Plotz's car.


  • The scene of the Goodfeathers divebombing Ralph parodies a scene from Apocalypse Now, in which bombers attack the Vietnamese jungles to the tune of Wagner's "Flight of the Valkyries."


  • Pesto's announcement that he has a plan to exact revenge is voiced by Maurice LaMarche (who usually provides Squit's voice) instead of Chick Vennera.

Mighty Wakko at the Bat


Written by Randy Rogel
Directed by Audu Paden

Animation by Wang


The Animaniacs cast star in a parody of the classic Ernest Thayer poem, Casey at the Bat, with a much more upbeat ending than the original.


  • A sign advertising "Freleng Fizz" clearly references Looney Tunes director Friz Freleng.
