* Segments featuring the Warners are often preceded by a sequence where they escape the tower and are chased by Ralph The Guard, and followed by one where they go back to the tower while he's still pursuing them... The odd thing about it is that he's still trying to capture them even though they're voluntarily going where he was going to send them anyway. There's two possible explanations: Either he's also supposed to make sure they're locked in properly while they're in there and can't do that when they close the door themselves, or else he's dim enough that once he gets caught up in chasing them, he forgets what the actual purpose of his pursuit is supposed to be.
* When Skippy is traumatized by the death of Bumby's mom, Slappy tries to reassure him that cartoon characters have deadly things happen to them all the time and are none the worse for wear for it, while Slappy insists that it wasn't a cartoon, it was a ''movie''. This is kind of in line of Slappy having more MediumAwareness than him, but he's also making a distinction between animated features, which are more likely to have some serious themes, and animated shorts/tv shows, which are more likely to feature slapstick.

* Their contracts, which are a form of contract where the talent gets paid, whether or not the project is made. Now, remember, they were just thrown in the water tower, and nothing else was done with them, outside of a handful of cheap knock-off cartoons... and their contracts meant they were getting paid for the entire hiatus!

* Skippy is traumatized by watching 'Bumbie' and seeing the death of [[Disney/{{Bambi}} Bumby's mom.]] Considering he lives with his aunt, his parents are never mentioned, and there was an episode where CPS takes him away, it's possible his parents died and the movie struck a chord with him.

* In "The Monkey Song" ([[WebVideo/JonTron not that one]]), Dr. Scratchnsniff invites the viewer to his house for "monkey stew." So, basically, he was going to '''eat''' the Warners. Sure, he didn't stand a chance against children that can torture Death, but geez!

* The theme song for the "In the Garden of Mindy" skit from the Animaniacs Stew episode includes the lyrics "One's a small child / And the other's... The Brain". Seems like just a play on your expectations at first, but then you realise it neatly steps around answering the eternal debate on who is the genius and who is insane.

* I noticed something about some of the educational songs and the tunes used for them. "Yakko's World" is sung to the "Mexican Hat Dance," which would be a song that the American viewers would associate with a foreign country (although a specific one). "Wakko's America" is sung to "Turkey in the Straw," which is a traditional American folk song that would be suited for a song that is specifically about American states. The song "Yippie-Ki-Yi-Yo" is about a rancher traveling with his cows, and it is used for the song about Magellan's voyage. Finally, the song about food ingredients is to the tune of the Can-Can, which is commonly associated with France, which is also famous for its food.

* Mindy only ever calls her mother "lady", despite her mother insisting to be called "Mom". Considering that she only leaves ''Buttons'' in charge of watching Mindy, and never does it herself, Mindy probably doesn't of her as a parent.

** Speaking of Pip, his surname, Pumphandle, is meaningful since when he has a penchant for handshaking and never stopping, and the way it's done, it almost looks like he's using a water pump.

* The Warner Siblings are infamous for nearly always playing the role of the retaliator in their cartoons and getting the better of their victim...except for when they meet someone astoundingly dull, resulting in them expending all their energies in a desperate attempt to get away from them.
