PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE GET A LIFE FILES
This page provides you, the obsessed Fanimaniac, with:
WHAT WAS IN THE ROOM
- picture of Dot (gives new meaning to the term "Dot drooler")
- misc. calendar
- "I love Minerva" poster
- Buster / Dizzy / Hamton dolls
- Cans of Jolt Cola, labelled by year, from 1990-1994
- Slappy-head mug (just like her brains were scooped out!!!)
- "Animaniacs box set" (what could this be? Is there an A! boxed set of anything?)
- "I speak Klingon" bumper sticker
- Einstein with "E=mc^2"
- Mobile (figures too poorly drawn to be identifiable)
- Tweety / Bugs / Wakko dolls
- Tasmanian Devil and Martian (mugs?)
- something on pillow (teddy bear)
- Wakko bedspread
- (Pinky and) the Brain McDonald's toy
- Picture of Yakko (seen only in the shot facing the Geek)
- Batman on nightstand (looks like he's been putting on a few pounds)
- another mug?
- WB rug
- Kirk vs. Picard poster
- laundry hamper (stuffed)
- poster (bird? plane? something?)
- "Flame at your own risk" sign
- Tweety, Tasmanian Devil (under bookshelf)
- Animaniacs poster
- model Enterprise, planet? (Space Jam yo-yo???)
- circular WB plaque
- picture of Dr. Scratchansniff
- Plucky Duck mug
- something under Plucky...
- something else (in hunting gear?) on the end of the shelf
- a plushie or something next to the computer (??)
Notice that when we switch shots, Tweety disappears from the shelf with
Bugs and Wakko, and we can see Yakko in the picture over the nightstand.
Also, some bendy toys (Dot and Bugs?!?...who knows...) appear on the
close-up of the computer, but vanish in all the other shots.
|GEEK 1:|| In the Newsreel opening, it says the Warners were created in 1930,
but to have a 65th Anniversary show in 1994 means they were created
in 1929! And in "Yakko's World", Tibet is not technically a
In "Cookies for Einstein", E=mc^2 is
not the relativity formula, it is the mass-energy conversion formula.
And Slappy's driving a Dodge Viper but races the Road-Runner which
was the name of Dodge Charger RT-variant in the '60s! And the
numbers in that "Yakko's Universe" song are so wrong, it's hardly
And in the theme song, it's pay-or-play contracts, not pay-for-play.
Some people think it's "for", but it's "or". The close-captioning
was wrong when it said "for". And in the
"Pinky and the Brain" title, the Tokyo Movie Shinsha version, which is on ones, it has BH 90201,
which is supposed to be BH —— Beverly Hills —— 90210 —— how could
they get that wrong??
|YAKKO:|| Is this you? Are you happily engrossed in inconsequential cartoon
trivia, to the point that your socks can probably stand up by
themselves? Well, if you are, there's hope —— there's help ——
there's the...PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE GET A LIFE Foundation!
Since its inception, the Please Please Please Get a Life Foundation
has gently, and calmly, brought people back to earth.
|GEEK 2:|| 'Kay, in "Gift of Gold", there's this guy with a T-shirt that says
839 on it, and that's the cartoonists' union, Local 839, okkay? But
what's amazing is the episode number is 406-839!
|YAKKO:|| Our staff of trained professionals will soothe you with their
|GEEK 3:|| In "Pavlov's Mice", Pavlov wasn't really interested in conditioned
response, he just wanted some saliva to study.
|YAKKO:|| Yes, even the toughest cases are solved in a nuturing, serene manner.
|GEEK 4:|| In "Girlfeathers", the sign that says "Niagara Falls" is misspelled.
<BONK> And "Chairman of the Bored" has this drawing that looks like
Dustin Hoffman and Meryl Streep, who were both in Kramer vs. Kramer,
and they're sitting with the guy from Seinfeld who plays Kramer!
And in "Woodstock Slappy" <WHANG>,
you can see Scratchansniff for four
frames on the magic bus; and Woodstock was '69, but they mention
"Hair", which opened in 1970. In "Opportunity Knox", Brain is 'Mr.
Perkins', which is the most common name in Elizabethtown, Kentucky,
ten minutes from Fort Knox. And in "Christmas Plotz", Slappy wants
4—— <thud><thud> Nooo! Not him!!!
|BALONEY:|| Huh-huh-huh-huh-huh-hoo! Gosh-n-golly-ockums!! It's my yummy-yum-fun-fun-yummy-fun-yum-yum friend-a-loo! Huh-huh-huh-hoo!!!
|YAKKO:|| Quick! It's not too late! Call us before you rewind to see
what was in the room
in the opening shot! There is hope —— there is help —— there is the ——
|Y,W,D:||Please, Please, Please Get a Life Foundation!!
|GEEK 2:|| Thanks, Please Please Please Get a Life Foundation!
|GEEK 3:|| I couldn't've done it without you!
|GEEK 4:|| You guys are the G-reatest!
|YAKKO:|| Call now! ...The life you get may be your own.
|GEEK 1:|| Did you notice that the third "Pleese" was misspelled with two 'E's?
I think that was intentional.
<ow> The iris-out-on-the-nose thing's been done!
CULTURAL REFERENCES from the NACRG
- Parody of a drug recovery center ad.
- Also, this short quotes parts of the original CRGA almost verbatim;
the WBA staff actually went so far as to track down the people who wrote them to ask
for their permission! (LC)
- Several months ago I received email from Peter Hastings asking for copies
of the CRGA by email and snail mail, which I provided. You can fill in the rest yourself. (WBB)
- Like Knights questing for the Holy Grail, you have ended up becoming
that which you seek —— a Cultural Reference in the TV show Animaniacs. (furry)
- A model of the U.S.S. Enterprise hanging from the guy's ceiling, except
the body of the enterprise is in a really odd spot in relation to the nacells. But, ahhh,
let's not be anal. (WY)
- Okay, so like in the opening scene, the guy at the computer says that Slappy
races a Roadrunner, which he says is a Dodge Charger R/T variant of the 60's. Well, it's
not. The Plymouth Roadrunner is a Dodge Coronet variant
in the 60's while the Dodge Charger R/T is a variant itself of a normal
Dodge Charger while the Roadrunner didn't become a variant of the Charger until the 70's.
How could they get that wrong? (BB)
[See "Little Old Slappy From Pasedena" in the CRGA]
- The coffee in the mug when Baloney was about to come on was a
clear reference to Jurassic Park,
when the same thing was done with numerous liquids that shook as dinosaurs romped around... (Berna)
- I can now reveal the error that I spotted in this segment when the folks at WBA
showed it to the Animania IV group... In the first geek's speech
near the end, when he talks about the Beverly Hills
90210 reference in the "Pinky and the Brain" intro, he says that the chalkboard has "BH90201" on it. This
is, as anyone who is familiar with the intro or the CRGA entry referencing it can see, incorrect; he should have said
- What Jay didn't mention is that within 10 seconds of the laughter ending
when we were shown PPPGALF at Animania IV, he pointed out this error to WBA.
(Note that he was seeing it for the first time and did not have a copy of the CRGA handy.)
After a moments reflection, Peter Hastings (I think) made the comment "It's very layered, isn't it?"
Now everyone can decide for themselves (or debate it here)...
Did WBA make the "error" on purpose? or was it a hook for us to byte?
Remember, the folks at WBA are pretty damn sharp. (RW)
It was at that point that Hastings named Maynard the PPPGALF's "Poster Boy". (SC)
- At the end of the cartoon, the third "Please" is misspelt with two "E"s.
I think that was intentional. And the "Iris Out On The Nose" bit's been done.
