Theme Song

Variable Line

Dot: Shirley MacLaine-y...

Trivia

  • Nickelodeon and sister-channel Nicktoons would later utilize an edited version of this shot where Dot sings "Nickelainey", with a orange-colored Nickelodeon-branded crystal ball. Infamously, this was edited into the channels' broadcast of every episode.

Plot

The Warners climb up the Himalayas to seek the all-knowing all-seeing Wally Llama and ask him a very important question, but the Llama is really tired and does not want to answer more questions.

Trivia

  • Wally Llama is a parody of the 14th Dalai Lama.
  • Shirley MacLaine makes a cameo in a parody of her belief in reincarnation.
  • Pinky and the Brain make a cameo in the middle of the cartoon.
  • When Wally fails to answer the Warners' question, Yakko suggests that they should instead write to Dear Abby. This is a reference to the American advice column founded in 1956 by Pauline Phillips under the pen name "Abigail Van Buren."

Where Rodents Dare

9-2-WhereRodentsDare

Animation by Wang Film Production

Plot

Pinky and the Brain go to Switzerland, where a United Nations convention is being held, in order to use Brain's freeze ray to freeze the guests solid and take over the world. Only problem is that the summit is atop a mountain summit, which Pinky and Brain must climb.

Crew

Trivia

  • The world leaders in the Brady-Bunch-like news graphic are: Fidel Castro, Queen Elizabeth, George H. W. Bush, Nelson Mandela, Manuel Noriega, Yassir Arafat, Boris Yeltsin, Mihkail Gorbachev, and Dan Quayle. President Bill Clinton makes an appearance later at the gondola ride.
  • The Warners make a cameo at the dinner table.
  • The title is a play on the war movie Where Eagles Dare.
  • This marks the first appearance of a running gag of the Brain asking Pinky to call him by an alias or title and Pinky constantly forgetting to do so. Here, he wants to be referred to as "General Brain".
  • A running gag throughout the episode is a marching drum is heard in the score, only to be revealed to be Pinky playing the drums, which constantly annoys Brain.

Quotes

The Brain: Pinky, are you pondering what I'm pondering?
Pinky: I think so, Brain, but where will we find an open tattoo parlor at this time of night?

Wheel of Morality

Wheel3

Animated by Tokyo Movie Shinsha

The moral of the story is: Nothing!
The wheel, instead of landing on a number, lands on the "$5,000" mark. The Warners celebrate, but their joy is cut short when they spot Ralph chasing after them and flee.

Trivia

Goofs

  • Despite the wheel landing on the "$5,000" mark, the wheel is shown to have landed on "Trip to Tahiti" when the camera zooms out (likely due to the reused animation).
