Yakko, Wakko and Dot: Pinky and the Brainy...

Opportunity Knox


Written by Tom Minton
Directed by Michael Gerard


Pinky and the Brain travel by minivan to Fort Knox to take control of all the gold.



  • The shot of Pinky and the Brain lifting up the gold bar is later used in the theme song of the spin-off.
  • In yet another continuation of their literal running gag, the Warners and Ralph briefly appear outside of Acme Labs and again outside of Fort Knox.
  • Brain's name is "Mr. Perkins". This is the most common name used in Elizabethtown, Kentucky, which is only a ten-minute drive from Fort Knox. This is noticed in the "Please Please Please Get a Life Foundation" cartoon.
  • The plot is similar to the Ian Fleming novel Goldfinger, which starred James Bond, in which the titular villian seeks economic supremacy by hiring American gangsters to aid him in his efforts to rob Fort Knox.

Good Idea, Bad Idea

Bad Idea: Stopping to feel the roses.

Wings Take Heart


Written by Nicholas Hollander
Directed by Alfred Gimeno


In this miscellaneous silent short, when a male moth and female butterfly fall in love, they head to the city.


  • This is the first cartoon to not focus on any of the main cast of Animaniacs, although the Warners make a brief cameo.

The moral of today's story is:
"If you can't say something nice, you're probably at the Ice Capades."


  • Dot disses the Disney Channel, when she says "To make fun of the Disney Channel?!".
