Captain Mel can be seen as a boss in the Aquatic Stage in the Animaniacs video game on the SNES.
(We Surf the Sea
Music by Sir Arthur Sullivan. Lyrics by Paul Rugg.)
Yakko, Wakko, and Dot:
We surf the sea
The Warners we three be
To catch a gaze
Of a beach to get some rays.
We'll never sink
Our board's not what you think
It's got a tail
In fact it is a whale!
Yakko and Wakko: Yes, Brothers Warner we
Dot: And the Warner Sister
Yakko: You'd like her if you kissed her.
Yakko, Wakko, and Dot:We've surfed the seven seas! Now it's time to catch some Z's! Hey!
Captain Mel: The penalty for trespassin' be death!
Yakko: You can't kill us--you hardly know us! So...how's about a kiss?
(Wakko growls at Captain Mel)
Yakko: Too big.
(Wakko growls quieter)
Captain Mel: Ye be trespassing on my private pirate property!
Wakko: Bet you can't say that five times fast!
Yakko: Oh, it's our new best friend!
Captain Mel: Who be ye?
Yakko: Ye be we: The Warner Brothers!
Dot: And the Warner Sister!
The abominable snowman from the old Bugs Bunny shorts makes a brief cameo appearance while the Warners are changing the backgrounds.

Yakko's song "I Am the Very Model of a Cartoon Individual" references Babs and Buster Bunny, two main characters from Spielberg's previous animated series Tiny Toon Adventures.
This episode is a parody of the musicals "HMS Pinafore" and "The Pirates of Penzance."
