Tower Escape

The Warners escape the water tower on a giant condor.



Written by Tom Minton
Directed by Barry Caldwell and Jon McClenahan


An early Warners film from 1929 is shown where the siblings disguise themselves as pastry chefs to get their hands on some food.

Woodstock Slappy


Written by John P. McCann and Tom Ruegger
Directed by Audu Paden


In 1969, Slappy and Skippy go out to Woodstock, NY, to get some rest, but find themselves in the middle of the biggest music and arts festival ever assembled. Features the "Who's on Stage" routine, patterned after the Abbott & Costello routine "Who's on First".


Dr. Scratchansniff has a cameo lasting only four frames in the escape scene to the magic bus. This would later be refrenced in the "Please Please Please Get a Life Foundation" cartoon.

Warner Bros 4-Woodstock


  • The Who didn't play on Stage at Woodstock during the Afternoon, they played at 5:00 am in the morning when the sky was still black going into sunrise.
  • Woodstock occurred in 1969, but Skippy has a Hair poster in his bedroom. Hair did not open on Broadway until 1970. This would also later be referenced in the "Please Please Please Get a Life Foundation" cartoon.
  • Melanie is singing a version of "Brand New Key," a song which would not come out until 1971.

Chase Ending

The Warners return to the water tower via a lasso from Wakko's gag bag. When Ralph pulls the rope, a horse falls on him. The Warners just shrug and go back into the tower.


  • This the final chase ending.
