  • Cap'n Mel doesn't know what he's getting himself into...

    I LOVE this episode. Or, specifically, I love the songs, especially, "Cartoon Individual." It was a wonderful parody of an opera song that I don't understand, and set the par a bit high for the rest of the series - something that was never a problem, of course. The episode also used two of the best catchphrases - "Faboo," and Yakko's always famous, "Ahhhhh..." Cap'n Mel and his crew were entertaining, to say the least. I especially liked the sign that he held up, with the arrow pointing down at himself. It was a classic, lol, visual gag moment. Plus, this episode is a good example of the show's random nature - I mean, pulling a cannibal out of a bag? That's just GENIUS! Pure, comedic GENIUS!moreless

    • (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!'s about a kiss?

    • (Wakko growls at Captain Mel)
      Yakko: Too big.
      (Wakko growls quieter)
      Yakko: Better.

    • 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!
