Yakko: "Lake Champlain-y..."
Ten Short Films About Wakko Warner
Akom Film Production
A documentarian presents ten short films documenting events in the life of
1. "Lunch With Steven"
Wakko has lunch with
Steven Spielberg, who doesn't make an appearance but instead speaks though a intercom.
Wakko volunteers at Nanaland Retirement Home, allowing the residents to pet him like a cat.
3. "Wakko Plays Golf with Benny Hill"
Benny Hill engage in golf-themed slapstick before chasing after Hello Nurse and Hill's co-star Henry McGee. A parody of the Benny Hill theme "Yakety Sax" plays in the background.
4. "Alone Time"
Wakko takes a nap on a worn-out couch.
5. "My Dinner with Wakko"
Wakko eats dinner with
Dr. Scratchansniff at a fancy restaurant. The Doctor tells Wakko about his visit to the Mayan ruins, which Wakko finds less than interesting.
Dr. Scratchansniff's sculpture of bread and mashed potatoes may be a reference to Spielberg's film
Close Encounters of the Third Kind, in which aliens compel the main character to build a sculpture of a mesa.
6. "Rehearsing with Martha Graham"
Wakko consults dancer Martha Graham in preparation for an upcoming cartoon. He finds her advice unhelpful.
7. "Staring at the Camera"
Wakko stares at the camera for about ten seconds.
8. "A Big Duet"
Wakko sings a duet version of "Pop Goes the Weasel" with Frank Sinatra.
9. "The Dollar Store"
Wakko visits a large dollar store and annoys the cashier by repeatedly asking how much items cost. When the cashier tells him that everything costs a dollar, Wakko buys everything in the store for just one dollar.
10. "That's Enough of That"
Wakko tires of the documentary crew following him around and filming. When he asks them to leave, the director assumes Wakko is joking and continues shooting. In the end, Wakko smashes the camera with his
mallet and the episode ends with "FIN."
This series of shorts serves as another example of Yakko and Dot not appearing in their own series, like
Ups and Downs. This is the second Warners segment in the series to not feature Yakko and Dot, the first seen on
Ups and Downs. The engineer in "A Big Duet" is a caricature of the show's recording engineer
Harry Andronis. The conductor is a caricature of the show's composer Richard Stone. The ending scene of "Rehearsing with Martha Graham" was cut out from the Nicktoons version of this episode.
Wakko breaks the 4th wall as he smashes the camera with his mallet.
The title is a parody of . 32 Short Films About Glenn Gould
No Time for Love
Animation by Akom Film Production
In this miscellaneous cartoon, a cuckoo clock bird falls in love with a real canary and tries to get around the fact that he's bolted to the clock to be with her.
The theme song of the Little Bird from "
My Mother the Squirrel" plays in this episode's opening credits. The canary is a yellow recolor of Carloota from "
West Side Pigeons." The cartoon's plot is similar to that of the
Noveltoons short "The Bored Cuckoo" produced by Famous Studios in 1948. This is the final one-shot cartoon until " Things That Go Bump in the Night" in the 2020 series. As such, it is the final one-shot cartoon in the original series.
The Boo Network
Wang Film Production
Thaddeus Plotz hires Chicken Boo as the new head of programming for the WB Network. Network exec Mr. Johnson remains skeptical due to the fact that Boo is a chicken.
Chicken Boo's launched shows are parodies of 60 Minutes, The X-Files, The Wonderful World of Disney and Melrose Place.
