Wraprounds

Buster and Babs take over K-Acme TV's broadcasting system to present their own parodies of famous TV shows and commercials.

Sketches

Tinkerbunny's Wonderful World of Make Believe and Learning Fun

Babs as Tinkerbunny is the host of a children's TV show which is a combination of Mister Roger's Neighborhood and Pee-wee's Playhouse, with Plucky as Dr. Genius, as they try to teach viewers about rain.

Plucky's Unlucky Worms Commercial

Sweetie Bird and Concord Condor chase after Plucky to try to get his unlucky worms in a parody of General Mills' Lucky Charms cereal.

Gyp-Parody

In a parody of Jeopardy with Buster Bunny as the host, the competitors are Elmyra Duff (who fails to give any question that doesn't involve bunnies), Dizzy Devil (who eats his podium), and Calamity Coyote (who knows all the questions to the answers, but his buzzer refuses to work).

I Love Dizzy

In a parody of I Love Lucy, Dizzy Devil gets a job at a cake factory. When production speeds up, he eats all the cakes and is fired.

Calvin Acme's Depression Commercial

Fifi stars in this perfume commercial, a parody of Calvin Klein's Obsession, with her smell driving everyone, including the perfume bottle, away from her.

Super Plucky-o Bros Commercial

Plucky stars in this commercial for Super Plucky-o Bros, a parody of the hit Nintendo game Super Mario Bros.

Honey, I Shrunk the Clothes Trailer

In a trailer for a parody of the 1989 Disney movie Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, Hamton and Gogo get a job at the Acme Laundromat and accidentally shrink the clothes, including Fifi's dress.

Toon Court

In a parody of The People's Court, Calamity Coyote unsuccessfully sues the Acme Corporation for negligence and faulty workmanship.

The Blunder Years

In a parody of The Wonder Years, Hamton looks back on his childhood as a terrible baseball player in Acme Looniversity's baseball game against Perfecto Prep. He likes to play baseball, but he just plain stinks at it.

Nature World

Elmyra discovers porcupines. When she finds one, she tries to hug it, but it is very sharp, and the pain sends her up into space. The porcupine, who has now lost all his quills, snickers like Muttley.

Ralph

Ralph is lying on a couch and says, "Don't hate me because I'm beautiful," and then gets hit with a cream pie. This is a parody of "Don't Hate Me Because I'm Beautiful" from Pantene commercials.

Wackyland Travel Log

An anthropomorphic log visits Wackyland. He drives a speeding propellered vehicle, and heads towards a drawbridge, being drawn by an anthropomorphic pencil. He falls off the unfinished bridge and Gogo puts him on trial. He finds the log guilty and sentences him to hard time in the wacky catacomb. Later, Gogo wants to know who the letters Y and U are.

The Search for Bigbutt

Buster and Plucky are on the search for the legendary Bigbutt. They interview an old prospector who resembles Yosemite Sam. The prospector tells them that he saw Bigbutt when he was looking for gold as a kid in 1909. Elmyra finds Bigbutt, but he is one of the few animals she doesn't think is cute and cuddly.

Frightline Bumper

In a parody of Ted Koppel's Nightline, a man says, "Good evening, I'm Fred Dopple and this is Frightline." He then removes his face, revealing a monster face, and puts his original face back on as he says "Scary, isn't it?"

Attack of the 50 Foot Girl

In a parody of Attack of the 50 Ft. Woman, Elmyra is fifty feet tall and scares the citizens of Acme Acres away. She hugs the buildings, but just as she is hugging them, Buster and Babs interrupt the movie to advertise the Acme Home Cartoon Kit.

The Acme Home Cartoon Kit Commercial

Buster and Babs interrupt Attack of The 50 Foot Girl, advertising the Acme Home Cartoon Kit to anyone who wants to star their own syndicated cartoon series.

Trivia

  • The game show Gyp-Parody would later be used in Animaniacs in the Pinky and the Brain cartoon "Win Big", where Brain competed to win enough money to buy the parts for an invention that would take over the world.
  • In "Wackyland Travel Log", Gogo's full name is given as Gogo Wackston the Dodo.
  • The end credits' gag credit is somewhat inaccurate. K-Acme TV was meant to be the season finale for Season 1, but "High Toon" was held up during production, making it the season finale instead.
  • In the box Babs dumps out for the Acme Home Cartoon kit, the writers, artists, and execs are all caricatures of the various writing and art staff for the show and the execs. Also Steven Spielberg appears in the end.
  • The NES sound effects from Super Mario Bros. were reused in "Super Plucky-O Bros."
  • In "The Blunder Years", Sylvester is mistakenly given Furrball's color scheme.
  • Montana Max is credited, but does not appear in this episode.
