  • Buster: (nobody calls in to the music request hotline) Brrrring, brrrring, (picks up the receiver and talks through the corner of his mouth) Uh, I'd like to hear "Respect". (talking normal) Yes sir, coming up sir. And now folks, here's "Respect"...why can't I get any?

Trivia (2)

  • In the extened version of the opening theme...how many languages are there? My guess 7. Download it and see.

  • One wonders just how much this one episode cost. In addition to the appearance of Julie Brown(who was once a popular person if you can believe it), it also played several copyrighted songs in their entirety. Granted, most of them were old, but the two songs by They Might Be Giants were made just a few years ago. Presumably, some deal must have been struck to get the songs on--their record label WAS Warner Bros, after all. Great episode anyway, although not nearly as good as its sequel, Toon TV. I wish more cartoon shows would try these kinds of creative ideas.
