** Because why not? Possibly it was also meant to clash with the fact that he's the least serious and the messiest, yet he is, in fact, the one with the Liverpudlian accent (voiced to sound like RingoStarr because Wakko is the shortest of the Warners). {{Irony}}, in other words, coupled with RuleOfFunny. JessHarnell actually decided to do the voice when auditioning (it was either Ringo or Lennon; Wakko was going to be auditioned by Harnell to be British either way), so there was probably a bit of ThrowItIn there, too.

** I wonder, is it possible Buttons is just lip-syncing?

* What's with the phrase "goodnight everybody"? I know it's ''supposed'' to be there when a radar moment happens, but sometimes Yakko says it when there's ToiletHumor, which, while a bit gross, isn't ''dirty''. And also sometimes I just don't get it, but maybe that's because my mind is pretty clean in general. And most important of all, ''what do dirty jokes have to do with going to bed?!''

** It's a fourth wall breaking sign off. I took it as him implying that the censors would shut the episode down over it if they continued the joke, since it was a blatant radar moment. Or it sounded like a blatant radar moment (like the conjugate joke).

** The show doesn't have a script (In-universe, at least.) It says so in the theme song.

* What's everyones problem with Chicken Boo? Before he's revealed as a giant chicken, most people like him and he usually does good things, with only the person who can see through is disguise hating him for simply being a chicken. But then when he is revealed to be a giant chicken, everyone turns on him even after all the good stuff he did. I know FantasticRacism is a thing, but normally people don't want the person they were previously racist to after that person saved their lives or made them millions of dollars!

** At least in the case of "Finger Prince" you're ignoring some of the context. At the time the Warners are searching for clues and Yakko tells Dot to look for ''PRINTS''. She then produced Prince having misheard him. He then corrects her and tells her ''FINGER PRINTS". It's funny to the kids because she misheard him and thought it had to do with the Artist Formerly Known as. There are plenty of other times when the show made other references but most of them were less innapropriate than over the heads of the audience. I know at twelve Charlie Sheen, Ben Verene just happened to rhyme with lima bean which was the only part I needed to understand.
