  • This is one of my real favourite episodes

    WARNING: Spoiler!

    One of my favourite episodes, love it, has some of the funniest gags in it along with possibly one of the best scenes I've seen in a long time. I love the part where Yakko does the typewriting on a fake imaginary typewriter was just priceless, ode to the classic Jerry Lewis skit, this was when good modern comedy ruled the world, saturday mornings and just made everyone laugh out loud, Animaniacs had some of the best episode plots ever. No other cartoon will be as brilliant as this cartoon, a true masterpiece, a modern classic, good timesmoreless

  • NOTES (2)


    • In this ep. Yakko is asked to type a letter for Mr. Plotz. When he does, it is identical down to the music and typing style of a Jerry Lewis skit. Also Paul Rugg wrote this ep. and he is a fan of Jerry Lewis. He uses Jerry Lewis things in almost all his work at the WB.
