Oh, Oh, Ethel


An advertisement for a new one-woman show starring Slappy Squirrel called "Oh, Oh, Ethel" is shown. However, Slappy becomes discouraged when she finds out the show is a tribute to Ethel Merman and not Ethel Mertz like she originally thought.

Last line

Yakko: Eisenhower, Mamie...


Yakko is in a session with Dr. Scratchansniff. Scratchy shows Yakko some ink blot tests but all Yakko sees is girls. This is the second time the show got away with saying "sexy". However, the fourth test reminds him of the next cartoon.

Meet John Brain


Written by Peter Hastings
Directed by Greg Reyna and Kirk Tingblad


Pinky and the Brain play the political game when Brain runs for President of the United States.


  • The clip of Pinky saying, "NARF! Ahehehehehehehehehe, what'm I doin' here?" was used in the intro for Rob Paulsen's podcast, "Talkin' Toons".


  • In the original version of this cartoon, Jupiter was misspelled as "Jupitep". The future airing is changed to "Indiana". The corrected version of this has "Juptiep" changed to "Indiana." This was also re-animated due to cels. Several banners got added in the corrected verison. The original version can be seen on the DVD.
  • Hello Nurse makes a cameo, but in the first shot, her hair is black rather than blonde, like it usually is.


Smell Ya Later


Title card Written by Earl Kress and Tom Ruegger
Directed by Rich Arons and Lenord Robinson


Slappy and Skippy face off against Stinkbomb the dog and his grandson Bumpo to get some nuts.



  • In the original version, Stinkbomb's doghouse had his name misspelled as "STINKBOMP". This was later corrected, but the original can be seen on the DVD.



Written by Paul Dini Chicken Boo stars in a parody of Nike sneakers ads.

Wheel of Morality

Wheel of Morality

The moral of today's story is:
