---I am the Very Model of a Cartoon Individual
Yakko: I am the very model of a cartoon individual My animation's comical, unusual and whimsical I'm quite adept at funny gags; comedic theory I have read From wicked puns and stupid jokes to anvils that drop on your head. I'm very good at fancy dances; I can even pirouette Then smack the villain with a fish; I know my cartoon etiquette I can make my face all mean and really give you quite a fright Then make up with flowers made of real exploding dynamite. When in a jam I just yell "stop" and villains in their tracks are froze Then I sneak up and utter "start" and take my hands and honk their nose I am quite proud to be in such a hierarchial progeny From Daffy Duck and Tweety Bird to Babs and Buster Bunny. To suit my mood I can call forth a lot of different sceneries Like outer space and desert scapes and Himalayan eateries From this bag here why I can pull most anything imaginable Like office desks and lava lights and Bert who is a cannibal. YW+D: You see, in matters comical, unusual, and whimsical We are the very model of cartoon individuals!
SLAPPY SQUIRREL INTRODUCTION (Episode 3)
YW+D : The crankiest of creatures in the whole wide world, Our next cartoon features Slappy the Squirrel! Slappy: (spoken) Ahhh, 'nough with the singin', already! YW+D : (sung) That's Slappy!Transcribed by "The Corinthian"

Totally awesome Acme Snax They are fun and energy-packed Sugar-coated sugar sacks... ---Wonderful World of Walnuts theme
The world is a carousel of walnuts Beautiful, colorful walnuts...
YAKKO'S UNIVERSE (Episode 3)
Music and lyrics by Randy Rogel.
Yakko: Everybody lives on a street in a city Or a village or a town for what it's worth. And they're all inside a country which is part of a continent That sits upon a planet known as Earth. And the Earth is a ball full of oceans and some mountains Which is out there spinning silently in space. And living on that Earth are the plants and the animals And also the entire human race. It's a great big universe And we're all really puny We're just tiny little specks About the size of Mickey Rooney. It's big and black and inky And we are small and dinky It's a big universe and we're not. And we're part of a vast interplanetary system Stretching seven hundred billion miles long. With nine planets and a sun; we think the Earth's the only one That has life on it, although we could be wrong. Across the interstellar voids are a billion asteroids Including meteors and Halley's Comet too. And there's over fifty moons floating out there like balloons In a panoramic trillion-mile view. And still it's all a speck amid a hundred billion stars In a galaxy we call the Milky Way. It's sixty thousand trillion miles from one end to the other And still that's just a fraction of the way. 'Cause there's a hundred billion galaxies that stretch across the sky Filled with constellations, planets, moons and stars. And still the universe extends to a place that never ends Which is maybe just inside a little jar! YW+D : It's a great big universe And we're all really puny We're just tiny little specks About the size of Mickey Rooney. * Though we don't know how it got here * We're an important part here * It's a big universe and it's ours! * - In the original script, these lines were: YW+D : You might think that you're essential Try inconsequential It's a small world after all!
