Roll Over Beethoven (406-701)
The Warners are chimney sweeps who come over to the home of Ludwig van Beethoven, who is attempting to compose his fifth symphony.
- This was the first script Paul Rugg wrote for Animaniacs (and his first paid writing job ever). Based on this script, Sherri Stoner hired him as a series writer.
- The episode title is a reference to the Chuck Berry song of the same name, which has been covered by artists such as Electric Light Orchestra and The Beatles.
- The songs that Beethoven plays at the beginning are "Chopsticks", "Merrily We Roll Along" (the Merrie Melodies theme) and the Animaniacs Theme song.
- The Goodfeathers make a cameo appearance at the beginning of act two.
- The scene of Dot on top of the piano is a parody of the scene in the film The Fabulous Baker Boys.
- At the end, Vincent van Gogh is their next appointment, and Wakko makes a reference to his painting Still Life with Sunflowers.
- Beethoven: Do you know who I am?
- Yakko: No, but maybe if you hum a few bars.
- Beethoven: I am Ludwig van Beethoven, world famous composer and pianist.
- Yakko: You're a what?
- Beethoven: A pianist!
- Yakko: Mwah! Goodnight, everybody!
- Beethoven: But that is what I am. A pianist!
- Yakko: I think we've heard enough out of you. [Washes Beethoven's mouth out with soap]
