***** The "son of a bitch" clip was made by the animators as an in-house gag never meant to be shown to the public. They would never have put anything like that in a real Looney Tunes short. (It is true, though, that before UsefulNotes/TheHaysCode, some cartoons did have things that they wouldn't be able to get away with once the Code was in place, Ub Iwerks's FlipTheFrog being a notable example.)

* Between this show, ''Tiny Toon Adventures'', and ''Freakazoid!'', there are a lot of references to pop culture, celebrities in particular. However, I also noticed that most to all of the jokes are affectionate to the famous people involved and are playful in nature. What I'm wondering is the people who write these shows--do they have any thoughts on ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' and its mocking of pop culture and celebrities, which is far more malicious and are more like personal attacks? (For instance, an episode has KanyeWest portrayed as a narcissist who becomes violent when offered help or suspecting anyone through wild accusations. The Steven Spielberg group of shows would never do something like that.) I know Trey Parker takes every opportunity to let people know that he hates actors unless they give him a reason to like them. Don't get me wrong; I love ''South Park''. But the way the Steven Spielberg batch of shows and ''South Park'' handles jokes on celebrities and some pop culture movements is like night and day.

** 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.

* What happened to [[MsFanservice Minerva Mink?!]] I loved her skits! They were funny, and Minerva got her KarmicRetribution at the end! How come they kept the [[TheScrappy Hip Hippos]], but got rid of ''her ''? I know half of it was from the innuendo, but I re-watched her only two episodes, and nothing caught my eye as "risque", and yet they keep HelloNurse. Such a DoubleStandard. ** One joke character. Same as the Hippos and the pigeons, yes, but a one-joke character nonetheless. There's only so many funny ways you can show people freaking out to her presence.

*** And despite of this when she wants silence puts his fingers in the tufts on the sides of her head, while her real ears remain perfectly unobstructed :D.

*** And despite of this when she wants silence puts his fingers in the tufts on the sides of her head, while her real ears remain perfectly unobstructed :D.unobstructed. *** She doesn't have two sets of ears. The actual ear canal is in that fluff, and she just has the floppy cartilage part of her ears pulled back. Wakko, whose head is roughly the same shape as Dot's (unlike Yakko's whose head is narrower), has his ears closer to the side of his head than the top, starting about where Dot's tufts are on her head.

** Think of it like a young child being sent to their room because they were playing Tag in the house (and possibly broke something). The kid might love going to their room on their own, and loves sleeping in it, but hates being ordered to go there.

* Why does Wakko have a British accent when the other 2 don't?

** The simple answer is that in the Buttons and Mindy shorts, and in the Chicken Boo shorts, is that they're playing an ordinary dog and an ordinary, uh, giant chicken, just like HelloNurse plays up the DumbBlonde stereotype, but we're shown that she's actually a genius. I don't think we've ever seen Buttons and Chicken Boo outside their shorts (and Wakko's Wish) like we do other characters.
