  • An old Weasel and an old Baboon, now in retirement homes, remember the good old days from their youths.

    Now, this episode is simply the best one so far. The idea to have separate retirement homes for cartoon stars, sidekicks and villains, is pure genius!

    Weasel is of course in the cartoon stars retirement home, with his nurse, Loulabelle. Baboon is in the cartoon sidekicks retirement home, but is unhappy with his position there, always arguing with everybody that he was indeed the true star of the show.

    Lots of flashbacks to their youths follow. Weasel always being the best, and Baboon just a looser, in just about everything he does. From the moment they were born, and until now, both Weasel's and Baboon's lives are shown on-screen for the first and only time.

    This episode is arguably one of the best episodes the series ever had, and is a great and enjoyable experience for just about everybody.moreless

  • NOTES (5)


    • I.R. Baboon: I.R. cartoon star. I.R. be big! It cartoons that got small.

      Baboon's line about him still being a big star is a spoof of the line "I am big--it's the pictures that got small!" said by the character of Norma Desmond (played by Gloria Swanson (March 27, 1899 – April 4, 1983)) in the 1950 movie Sunset Boulevard, directed by Billy Wilder.

      The movie was nominated for eleven Academy Awards and won three. In 1998, it was ranked number twelve on the American Film Institute's list of the 100 best American films of the 20th century, and in 2007 it was 16th on their 10th Anniversary list.

      The same line would later be spoofed again in another one of Cartoon Network's original series, Chowder, in the episode "Big Food".
