Dot: Tarzan and Janey...
Gimme the Works
The Warners, specifically Dot, simply do not feel up to doing today's script, so they leave the cartoon abruptly.
Buttons in Ows
Written by Peter Hastings
Directed by Audu Paden and Barry Caldwell
- The Warners make a cameo appearance in Kansas rowing a boat in the cyclone. Wile E. Coyote in the Acme Bat-Man Suit from the cartoon Gee Whiz-z-z-z-z-z-z-z is also featured as a cameo.
- Pinky and the Brain also make cameos, with Brain playing the Wizard.
The Warners once again do not feel up to doing another script where they have to help a whiny Hercules with his trials. So Pinky and the Brain take over the cartoon in a plot to steal Zeus' lightning bolt to take over the world.
- Medusa is a caricature of comedian Joan Rivers.
- Zeus is a caricature of Orson Welles. Ironically, the Brain is also based on Welles.
- When Dot comes out of her clamshell, she ironically refers herself as Afro-Dottie, even though she doesn't like to be called that.
The moral of today's story is: "2B or not 2B, that is the pencil."
- This is the final "Wheel of Morality" segment. It is made up of re-dubbed footage from the first segment.

Wakko: Wanna hear me burp the theme to Friends?
Yakko: Uuuuhhhhhhh..., how about not.
- This is a redubbed version of the first "Wanna see me blow bubbles with my spit?" stinger.
- The Warners make a reference to Warner Bros.' hit 1994 TV series Friends, which at the time of this episode's first airing, was in its 2nd season.
