* In the Chicken Boo sketch "The Good, The Boo And The Ugly", Lee and Eli are clearly shown to have guns, so why don't they fight back against the outlaw that's terrorizing their town? Because they're not as quick on the draw as the outlaw or the "Man with No Personality" (Chicken Boo) are, even if they were skilled with their guns.

** Those contracts can also explain why there were so many cameos--might as well make use of the talent if they're getting paid anyway.

* 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.

* This is technically one from the ComicBook, but when one of Hello Nurse's H.U.B.B.A. recruits, a dippy dame by the name of Aloha Nurse, splashes a silly novelty drink on an evil minion (which she apologetically states to be a "scorpion bowl"), she's chided for it. Upon receiving an IceCreamKoan from Agent Konichiwa Nurse, she then uses a powerful fire attack. A scorpion bowl contains gin, vodka, and rum. [[AmusingInjuries The combination of alcohol and open flame would make for a perfect attack.]]

** It's also a clever move on the part of the cast at large; the terms of the contract ensured each of the characters got paid for every episode, regardless of whether or not they appeared, accounting for the cast's rotating schedule. The characters took care of themselves, and the network executives got the short end of that one.

* 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.

* 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.

* 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!

* 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.
