The Flame

21-4-TheFlame

Story by Tom Ruegger
Written by Nicholas Hollander & Tom Ruegger
Directed by Barry Caldwell

Synopsis

The Flame watches Thomas Jefferson write the Declaration of Independence.

Trivia

  • First The Flame cartoon.
  • This cartoon originally was the last one in this episode and "Four Score..." was the first. They were swapped in subsequent airings for unknown reasons.

Wakko's America

21-2-WakkoAmerica

Music: Traditional
Lyrics by Randy Rogel
Written by Randy Rogel & Tom Ruegger
Directed by Rusty Mills & Ron Fleischer

Synopsis

Miss Flamiel plays Jeopardy! in her class, and, to the tune of "Turkey in the Straw," Wakko sings the names of all 50 states and their capitals.

Goofs

  • Wakko is only supposed to name the state capitals, but he mentions Washington, D.C. In Jeopardy!, this would have also counted as giving an incorrect response in addition to Wakko's failure to put his response in the form of a question.
  • He also mispronounces the capital of South Dakota, which is actually pronounced "Peer" and not "Pee-air".
  • The Jeopardy! displays the last A in CAPITALS as an O, as in CAPITOLS.

Davy Omelette

21-3-DavyOmelette

Written by Deanna Oliver
Directed by Rusty Mills

Synopsis

Chicken Boo poses as the great frontiersman Davy Omelette, a parody of Davy Crocket.

Trivia

  • This segment marks the first appearance of the World's Oldest Woman, who would later be more prominently featured as one of the hosts of Histeria!

Chase Transition

The Warners, followed by Ralph, fly on an airplane out of Lincoln's nose on Mount Rushmore.

Four Score and Seven Migranes Ago

21-1 FourScoreAndSevenMigrainesAgo

Story by Tom Ruegger & Paul Rugg
Written by Gordon Bressack, Charles M. Howell IV & Paul Rugg
Directed by Alfred Gimeno

Synopsis

The Warners help President Abraham Lincoln write the Gettysburg Address.

Trivia

  • Some of the lines Lincoln comes up with are from speeches by Franklin Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy.
  • The Warners suggest to Lincoln parodies of Julius Caesar's speech, the opening of The Twilight Zone and the theme song of Tiny Toon Adventures.
  • This was originally aired as the first cartoon of this episode, but was swapped with "The Flame" in subsequent airings and on the DVD for unknown reasons.
  • The song that the Warners sing to Lincoln, "Lincoln, Lincoln, we've been thinkin'" is set to the tune of "Reuben, Reuben".
  • Yakko's speech is an impression of Jimmy Stewart in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.
