Dot: Come back, Shaney...

The Warners and the Beanstalk


Written by Deanna Oliver
Directed by Barry Caldwell


The Warners star in their version of the classic fairy tale with Hello Nurse as the harp and Ralph T. Guard as the giant. At one point in the story, the Warners convince the giant to eat gold eggs and meat instead of them, in the style of Dr. Seuss' Green Eggs and Ham.


  • For some reason, the DVD release cuts out this cartoon's title card. It did, however, appear on the Hub and Netflix.
  • The "Used Cow Salesman" is modelled off of Pat Buttram, who was known for playing snake oil salesmen.


Ralph: Pe pie pooka plot / I smell Yakko, Wakko, and Dot!
Yakko: Don't you mean fe fi fo fum?
Ralph: Yeah, but it don't rhymes with Dot.
Ralph: Fe fi fo fum / I fall down and hurt my bum.

Frontier Slappy


Written by John P. McCann
Directed by Alfred Gimeno and Jeff Siergey


Slappy finds herself facing pioneer Daniel Boone, who wants to cut down her tree to build his house.


  • When Daniel Boone asks the singers to show themselves, they turn out to be Tom, Dick and Larry from the 1942 Chuck Jones Merrie Melodies cartoon The Dover Boys.
