Trivia (31)

  • In the series, the chief appears to be clueless every time the toons either appear or get mentioned. In the beginning of this episode, he thought that Bonkers was a cop as a cartoon star as his cover. In Toon With No Name, Lucky mentions several toon related things and the chief doesn't seem to believe it. But, we learn that in this episode that he is a fan of Bubba Bear and he even refers to him as a cartoon star.

  • During this episode, the toons go missing. But apparently, the only toon that was noticed to be missing was Bubba Bear. Bubba Bear's disappearance was the only one made into a case.

  • When Bonkers challenges The Collector to a duel; he sharpens his pencil fingers, look closely; in this scene, he has five fingers.

  • Mistake: When Lucky says, "Could I drop you off at home?" Bonkers says that he doesn't have a home because they took it away. But, we learn that in [i]Toon With No Name[i], Bonkers lives in a trailer.

  • While Lucky is in the elevator; reciting his speech and the chief comes in to show him the newspaper. Look very closely, on the top left side of the newspaper, there is a blob of Mickey Mouse (another Disney character.) In the next shot, that blob is gone and it is just an empty grey rectangle.

  • When Bonkers first meets Dyl and Marilyn, the picture on the wall behind his armchair changes between shots.

  • When Bonkers arrives at Wackytoon Studios, our attention is drawn to the giant sign with his face. When Bonkers is kicked out of the studio, the signboard looks different.
