Yakko: Citizen Kaney...

Hearts of Twilight


Written by Paul Rugg
Directed by Alfred Gimeno


Thaddeus Plotz hires the Warners to stop Mr. Director from making his next film as he has gone insane and overbudget.


  • This cartoon is a parody of the documentary Hearts of Darkness, which chronicled the making of the movie Apocalypse Now, which is also parodied.
  • Mr. Director appears to be fat, bald, and wearing a purple suit like Marlon Brando's character Colonel Kurtz in this episode unlike his skinnier appearance in other episodes.
  • When Yakko supposes that there could be a trap around the soundstage and he is proven right, Dot says, "Thank you, Amazing Kreskin." The Amazing Kreskin is a famous mentalist.
  • Throughout the cartoon, a song indicates the beginning, middle and ending of the story. This is a parody of the song "The End" by the Doors, which was the theme of Apocalypse Now. In the end, the Warners accidentally run over Jim Morrison, the late lead singer of the Doors.
