Yakko, Wakko and Dot: Meet Mark Twainy...

The Sound of Warners (406-680)


Written by Paul Rugg
Directed by Alfred Gimeno and Charles Visser


In this parody of The Sound of Music, the Warners get a new extremely nice singing nanny named Prunela Flundergust.


  • When the Warners are sleeping, Yakko can be heard having a nightmare about flubbing the lyrics to "Yakko's World".
  • Prunela Flundergust is a parody of Julie Andrews' character "Maria"
  • In the end, there's a reference of another Julie Andrews' character named "Mary Poppins"
  • In this episode, it is revealed that the Warners don't use their force or trickery when a person being nice and kind to them, only when they are mean or rude to the Warners or to other people. Slappy Squirrel on the other hand...
  • Dot's mumbling of "Newt Gingrich" in her sleep is most likely a reference to a deleted song called "Dear Mr. Gingrich".
  • This is the only Warner episode where it switches animation. Wang did most of it, while Akom did the segment where the dad and daughter are watching the episode.

Yabba Dabba Boo


Written by Peter Hastings
Directed by Jon McClenahan and Rusty Mills


Chicken Boo plays a script doctor for the Flintstones movie.


  • The Chicken Boo theme song is changed. Instead of "You wear a disguise to look like human guys", the line is "You're jumbo-sized and you wear a disguise."
  • The writers are modeled after the real-life Animaniacs writers, including creator Tom Ruegger, Nicholas Hollander (referred to as "Shecky", Hollander's real life nickname), Peter Hastings, and Sherri Stoner, the only writer who provides her own voice.
  • The Amblin building is essentially a redesigned version of Acme Looniversity from Tiny Toon Adventures.
  • Chicken Boo's fake name is Larry Gelboo, named after Larry Gelbart, a TV writer best known for creating the hit series M*A*S*H.
