    10
    I absolutely LOVE this ep. mostly because Mr. Director who is my FAV. Non-Warner sibling Animaniacs character(thanks to the WONDERFUL Paul Rugg! I can't say enough good things about this great man!). I LOVE how he is practically a schizo! One moment he's all calm and mister "I'm better than thou" with a calm deep voice and the next he's spazzing out with a high-pitched scratchy dorky voice! And I love how he says "Froynlaven" It's absolutely hilarious! Thank you god for giving us Paul Rugg!!!!!!!!! I highly recommend this ep. and any eps with Mr. Director or ones written by Paul Rugg, he never fails to deliver zany humor to the max!moreless

    • Character Name: Illinois Smith

    • Yakko: We are going to do the tragic ending to the famous movie 'Old Screamer'. About a Boy's love for his sick old dog.

      Yakko directs the final scene from "Old Screamer". "Old Screamer" is a reference to Old Yeller which ends with a boy having to let his rabies infected dog die.

    • Card Reads: Stanislavski Moment

      As Mr. Director prepares to act out a scene in his film, one of the Warners holds up a card that reads "Stanislavski Moment". Konstantin Stanislavski was a famous acting teacher who invented the technique known as the Method acting. This technique involves an actor "feeling" and "becoming" the character they are about to perform in order that the character's actions flow naturally from internal motivations.

    • Name of Shoe Store: Imelda's Shoes

      The name of the shoe store in this episode is "Imelda's Shoes". This is a joke about Imelda Marcos who was the wife of Ferdinand Marcos the ousted tyrannical leader of the Philippines. Imelda Marcos was known to have owned thousands of pairs of shoes despite the fact that most people in her country lived in poverty.

      This famous quote comes from the 1986 film The Fly.
