* 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.

***** 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.
