    This episode, along with "Cartoon Canines," is one of the most truly bizarre episodes of the series. Everything is done in a very over-the-top manner and there are odd references in it that, while oddly hilarious, won't reach many.

    One of the weird references happens right at the beginning. The dogs are in the park, on a bench, looking up at the stars. A hobo comes up to them and asks for some change. This makes little dog very annoyed! He says he "ain't got any" change and after the hobo finally leaves (after being threatened to be cited for misspelling because his sign says "will fork for wood"), little dog angrily exclaims "I wish they'd keep these USC graduates off the streets!" An inside thing, probably, that I don't understand, but love anyway.

    Later, big dog accidentally swaps places with a foreign ambassador going to see the president (who is obviously Bill Clinton) and no one notices. Little dog thinks somethings wrong with his buddy, who seems to have lost his memory, so he repeatedly blows him up, figuring it'll shake his memory loose. Meanwhile, big dog gives a great speech about taking a vacation from yourself.

    Lots of fun in this one and a nice (if extremely weird) departure from the rest of the episodes.moreless

    • The Ambassador: I am not an animal, I am a politician.

    • Little Dog: You get out of here and leave us alone. I'm cite you for misspelling!
      (Shows bum's sign reading 'Will Fork For Food')

    • The Big Dog's Speech
      During the holidays when vacations are incurred, it's a good time to vacation from yourself. Of course, you cannot vacate your body and go off somewhere, but you can alter your mind and frame of living so that, for well grounded purposes, you will be taking a vacation from yourself. Here are some of my suggestions...
      (cuts away, returns)
      So, in closing, I say: drop all cares and worries about politics, business, and the foreign situation. You will be astonished to find the world will manage to struggle on somehow. Take a vacation From Your-Self!
