    If that does count, we can also bring up the time Fifi La fume had a cameo as a perfume store employee in Animaniacs.

    That's really more of a cameo than a reference, and since all 3 of those shows were produced by the same studio and (at the time) were running on the same Saturday morning lineup, I'm not sure if that should be counted.

    Ahhhhh... I'd have to agree with Blackstar on that, It wouldn't really count.

    I did recently go to see Cats & Dogs 2, and at one point, there was what appeared to be The Sylvester and Tweety Mysteries playing on a TV in the background.

    Also I just found a clip on YouTube from the most recent TMNT which apparently has a reference to Dot Warner.

    Eh, I don't know. That's kind of stretching things. If he'd said, "We can't help it if we're cute!" then that would have been more believable.

    Alternative: Same people that worked on "Bolt" also worked on "animaniacs".

    Nope, I can't find a single person who worked on Animaniacs that also worked on Bolt.

    pinky and the brain on "Bones"

    not sure if this was already mentioned.

    At the beginning of an episode, Booth mentions some bit of trivia to Bones, who admits to not knowing about he fact mentioned, to which Booth responds with delight: "Aha! Pinky beats the Brain!" My wife is a big "Bones" fan, and when she heard this she screamed with delight. My stock suddenly skyrocketed in her eyes.

    BTW, in "Bones," Booth is said to be a big cartoon fan.

    I once read a Beavis and Butt-head comic were Todd shoves their heads in the toilet but is then interrupted by another bully who tells him to hurry up or they'll miss Tiny Toons.

    Are you sure? Checked everything? Hm, ok. Ok then. Really?

    Otherwise it could be, you know, some sort of reference. That's my thought about it. I just can't see them "stealing" them birds.

    Take a look at the $2,000 clues in the second column on this game and this game of Jeopardy! See anything you recognize? Well, besides the former game being the first 3-way tie in Jeopardy! history.

    Cool! I didn't know they had an archive. That's very interesting. Apparently Tiny Toons has come up a few times in Jeopardy.

    Had to keep the topic alive!

    In the Potty Emergency episode of Animaniacs, the letters MST3K appear on the spaceship. It may be WB's applause to this Tiny Toons refrence.

    Pinky & The Brain also appeared on a couple of Jeopardy episodes.

    Yeah, and in the comic miniseries "Harley and Ivy", Harley watches a cartoon that is an obvious homage/parody of Animaniacs.

    Maurice LaMarche did the voice of the Brain in one of the audio commentaries to The Critic (I believe the first episode of that show's second season).

    LaMarche mentions The Brain all the time; it was clearly one of his favorite roles. He did it again in the new commentary for the Futurama episode "The Duh-Vinci Code."

    I'm not sure if this has been mentioned before, but I remember on an episode of the old early-to-mid-90's Nickelodeon game show Family Double Dare, one question was "What cartoon show features the characters Montana Max and Plucky Duck?"

    One of the contestants guesses "Looney Tunes." (obviously wrong). We ALL know the correct answer here...

    In the Jimmy Neutron episode, "Win, Lose or Kaboom", the alien only wanted to be called April. Makes you think of Dot from "Animaniacs".

    Last Sunday they aired a new Robot Chicken. The episode titled "Kramer Vs. Showgirls" They did another segment where the look to see what happened to their favorite TV shows of the past. They previously did 80s, but this time 90's. Even though mice tend to live about 2 years, they found Pinky & The Brain still being tested at Acme Labs. They make jokes about Brains huge head, and other bizarre experimentations on them. Hopefully they'll rerun it again. Its currently not on adultswim.com, but I bet youll find it if you wait a week. And no, they did not get any original voice actors for this one. :(

    This one is kind of a stretch, but on Family Guy recently, Peter drinks a whole lot of Red Bull, goes on The Price is Right, and when the host asks if he wants to say hi to anyone, he says alot of names fast, and Babs is one of thenames I heard.

    You know, I feel like one of the writers knows about this thread, and put that in there as bait. XD
