The Animaniacs cast does a parody of the theme song from Rugrats.


  • Wang Film Production provides animation for this parody segment. They had also animated for the actual Rugrats show's first season and pilot episode.

Theme Song


Last line

Yakko: Bangor, Mainey...


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.
  • Slappy Squirrel's theme for this episode is "Maple Leaf Rag."
  • 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.
    • In another jab at Disney, John Smith is wearing Mickey Mouse-style red pants.
  • 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.
  • During "Just the Same Old Heroine," we see cameos of Ralph T. Guard, Dr. Scratchansniff, and Colin.

Boids on the Hood

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."
  • This is the first Goodfeathers segment that does not take place in New York City, instead taking place on the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank, California.
  • 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

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.

Wakko: Wanna hear me burp the theme song?

Yakko: Sure do! And our fans can burp along with you!

Dot: Join us, won't you?


  • This stinger is a redubbed version of the second "Wanna see me make bubbles with my spit?" stinger.
