Of Course, You Know This Means Warners


Written by Tom Minton
Directed by Lenord Robinson and Dave Marshall


The Warners show off their assistance on the homefront during World War II.


  • The Warners' tap dancing is performed by songwriters Randy Rogel and Julie Bernstein.
  • Yakko does a reference to the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz by saying, "Look what it says on our medal: Courage. Ain't it da truth! Ain't it da truth!"


Up a Tree


Written by Deanna Oliver
Directed by Greg Reyna


Due to Runt's stupidity, Rita and the dog find themselves in Nebraska instead of Chicago. Rita gets chased by a dog all the way up a tree, which is unsettling for the acrophobic kitty.

Wakko's Gizmo


Written by Peter Hastings
Directed by Rusty Mills and Dave Marshall


Wakko shows his siblings his bizarre Rube Goldberg contraption.


  • The music of the title card is a recreation of Mel Blanc's "Wackyland Rubber Band" by sound effects editor Russell Brower.
  • There's a Weed Memlo poster inside the water tower, which gets a pie thrown at it.
  • Wakko's contraption is called the Wakko-Gulified Transgobulator.
