Segments Edit

Henry and June: After calibrating the TV, June messes with the controls.

Sniz and Fondue - "The Making of a Supermodel!": Fondue has a priceless item that Sniz wants to open. Sniz sneaks into Fondue's room, opens the item behind Fondue's back, ruins it and then finds out that Fondue wants to open it after all.

Henry and June: Henry and June show other cartoon shows including "Gout Patrol" and "Jeff, the Sad Dinosaur" which are not as "kablammier" than their next one.

Henry and June: Henry and June close the show by being early on saying goodbye. However, their stage manager tells them they have 15 seconds left in the show so they have to "stretch" and keep it going.

Henry and June Quotes Edit

June: "Oh no! Henry, we're mutating! Ourselves... multiplying at an alarming rate! OOOOOH!" (June messing with the television knobs)

Henry: "JUNE, I'M GONNA STRANGLE YOU!!!!!!" (Henry charges towards the television as June adjusts his volume knob)

Henry: "It's dangerous work." June: "That's why WE don't do it." (about the opening intro stunts)

June: "Where's the music. And the credits. We're dying out here." (waving goodbye as she and Henry close the show)

June: "I thought we handled that quite well." Henry: "We're gonna get fired." (after the comic book closes)

Trivia Edit

  • This is the first episode to only have three shorts instead of the usual "four shorts" per episode, due to how long The Louie and Louie Show short ran.
  • This is the only appearance of The Louie and Louie Show, and is the only short throughout the entire series' run (besides Action League Now!) to continue after a commercial break.
  • Since the end credits run faster than usual in the episode, they feature only still images rather than video clips from the shorts in the episode. The only other episode to do this is KaBlam! James KaBlam!.
  • It is the fifth and fourth episode in a row without Prometheus and Bob.
  • It is also the first episode without Life with Loopy.
