Trivia

  • The title is a play on the 1941 Marx Brothers film The Big Store.
  • As Mr. Flaxseed is climbing the ladder, to get to the jar of jelly beans, he passes a mountain goat and an astronaut.
  • Fitting with the candy theme, the music playing at the beginning of the cartoon (following title card) is "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" from Tchaikovsky's score of The Nutcracker.
  • The Goodfeathers make a cameo at the beginning of the cartoon.
  • Also if you look close to where the Goodfeathers are perched, they are sitting behind a cheese store which has a little sign that reads: "Yes, we will cut the cheese." To cut the cheese is to pass gas.
  • This is the second time that Yakko, Wakko, Dot was getting kicked out, the first seen on Cookies for Einstein.
  • The Warners' song to Flaxseed is a parody of "The Candy Man" from the film Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.
  • The Warners' train imitation was based on a piece of test animation of the Warners made before the series was greenlit.

Randy Beaman

Colin returns with a melting ice cream cone to talk about how Randy Beaman's aunt reacted to whatever was licking her feet. As his ice cream melts, he draws a smiley face on it, which disappears. As he attempts to lick it, the ice cream drops to the ground.

Bumbie's Mom

Animation by StarToons

Plot

Slappy and Skippy are watching the film Bumbie the Dearest Deer. At a pivotal point in the film when the title character's mother gets shot and killed, Skippy is traumatized and begins to cry uncontrollably. To stop his crying, Slappy takes Skippy to New Mexico to meet Vina Walleen, the actress who played Bumbie's mom and long-time friend of Slappy's.

Crew

  • Written by Sherri Stoner
  • Directed by Jon McClenahan and Barry Caldwell

Songs

Trivia

  • Bumbie the Dearest Deer is a parody of the 1942 Disney film Bambi.
  • Sherri Stoner cites her childhood trauma of watching the scene from Bambi where the titular character's mother gets shot as the basis for this episode.
  • When Slappy is awakened by Skippy's crying, she blurts out "Pat, I'd like to buy a vowel!". This is a reference to the game show Wheel of Fortune.
  • Hello Nurse makes a cameo as the flight attendant, and the Warners, naturally, follow her. Slappy replies by stating "That was pointless!"
  • When Slappy and Skippy reach New Mexico, they see Wile E. Coyote chasing the Road Runner. Slappy then demands a stop to the "gratuitous cameos".
  • To make Skippy's laughter sound more genuine, Nathan Ruegger (the voice of Skippy) had his father Tom Ruegger tickle him.
  • At one point, a house falls on a cartoon dog, a parody of a scene from the 1939 film, The Wizard of Oz.
  • There are many Hanna-Barbera references in this cartoon. Slappy mentions that Vina Walleen dated George Jetson from The Jetsons. Skippy says that Slappy claimed that Magilla Gorilla was a woman. The punchline to Vina's recollection to Slappy is, "So Pebbles says, 'Get your own Bamm-Bamm, lady!'"
  • In a "Here we go again" gag at the end, the squirrels watch Old Yellow, a parody of the film Old Yeller, which is also made by Disney.
  • Regarding Skippy's crying whenever she mentions Bumbie's mom, Slappy remarks "Pavlov would love this kid." This is a reference to Ivan Pavlov, a psychologist known for his experiments of classical conditioning, who was also parodied in a Pinky & the Brain short.
  • The line "That is not Bumbie's mom, she is old!" may have been inspired by a Dennis the Menace short. In the comic, Dennis is a fan of Cowboy Bob, a Western star. However, Dennis failed to realize that Westerns are rarely made today and the films he is seeing are actually old re-releases. In one story arc Dennis' parents had invited the actor who played Cowboy Bob, now retired, to their party and thought it would be nice to introduce him to Dennis. Dennis however, thought he was meeting "Cowboy Bob's grandpa"!
  • A few fourth wall breaks happen in this cartoon. Before Skippy barfs, Slappy turns to the camera and tells the cameraperson to quickly dissolve to the next scene. Then right at the end of the cartoon as Skippy's crying again, Slappy looks at the camera and says "Fade out already, we get the joke!"

Quotes

Hello Nurse: Would you like anything?
Slappy: Perhaps a sedative?
Hello Nurse: Huh? I don't get it.
Slappy: Go away.
Yakko and Wakko: Hello, nurse!
Slappy: That was pointless. (turns to Skippy) How you doin'?
Skippy: I feel air-sick. (burps and is about to barf)
Slappy: (to the camera) Dissolve to the next scene, quick!
Road Runner: (after outsmarting Wile E. Coyote) Beep Beep!
Slappy: Enough with the gratuitous cameos!
Skippy: But Bumbie's mom is.... (cries)
Skippy: That's not Bumbie's Mom! She's old!
Slappy: Tactless, yet rude.

Chase Ending
