Guardin' the Garden


Story by Earl Kress and Tom Ruegger
Written by Nicholas Hollander & Sherri Stoner
Directed by Michael Gerard & Chris Brandt


God hires Slappy as guardian of the Garden of Eden to keep the serpent from tempting Adam and Eve with apples from the Tree of Knowledge.


  • Baby Plucky Duck from Tiny Toon Adventures makes a cameo doing a play on his dialogue from the episode segment "Minister Golf".
  • This episode contains many Biblical references, specifically the Book of Genesis.
  • Ernie Anderson, the voice of ABC, returns as the narrator and does a play on his announcements for America's Funniest Home Videos.
  • Skippy doesn't appear in this episode, but Nathan Ruegger is heard as another character.


  • Slappy: [to the serpent] You remind me of a very young Scrappy-Doo.
  • Slappy: Oh,the back door.
  • Serpent: Colonel Mustard did it in the Kitchen. (Slappy opens the door and behind it was a cannon which exploded in the Serpent's face) ...Or was it Miss Scarlett?


  • The Snake stammered a Suspect's name from the Board game, Clue.

Plane Pals


Story by Tom Ruegger & John P. McCann
Written by John P. McCann
Directed by Rusty Mills & Kirk Tingblad


Onboard a plane, the Warners annoy a certain tightwad who is forced to sit by them because of a computer error.


  • Wakko says "How about a kiss?" to Bloski when he sits down. This action and Wakko's Scouse accent may reference a scene in the Beatles' film A Hard Day's Night, in which John Lennon says "Give us a kiss!" to a grouchy man on a crowded train.
