  • Kinky Spanking: Bertie and Speckle try this to spice up their nightly sex ritual with disastrous results.
  • Naughty Birdwatching: Taken quite literally with a human kid watching Bertie and Speckle make out through binoculars.
  • Wildlife Commentary Spoof: This series' first human watches Bertie and Speckle making out through the window with binoculars while narrating the whole thing like this. Twice. And both times, she's interrupted by her mother calling her over for a meal.
