"Wakko's Two Note Song" is a song from the segment of the same name. It is likely a reference to "C Jam Blues" by Duke Ellington, which starts with a two-note piano solo.

Upon Dr. Scratchansniff becoming upset at Wakko Warner's "noise" during a car trip, the Warners set out to prove that his two notes could be any song. They begin by making it a polka, then proceed to show it off as country, rock, jazz, orchestral, and then finally use it for a marching band. By the end, Scratchansniff is very excited about the song, confusing Thaddeus Plotz.

The song technically takes place entirely inside of Scratchansniff's car, with all of the other "stages" the Warners stand on being nondiagetic; this can be seen in the fact that every chair Scratchansniff sits in throughout the video is the same color as his green car seat, despite the other chairs being red. It is also one of the few shorts to be shot in a different aspect ratio than the standard cartoons.

The two notes in question are a G and an E. The music was composed by Peter Hastings and Richard Stone and was featured on the album "Variety Pack."
