During the Snow Chase Scene, a cannonball can be seen being shot through the front end and exiting through the back corner of Dr. Scratchensniff's buggy. However, Baron von Plotz and Ralph's buggy are chasing them from behind shooting cannons at them, making it impossible for the cannonball to enter the Dr.'s buggy from the front end. See more »

Not-so-hidden Time-Warner merger reference
1 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just saw this on HBO, did anyone catch the not-so-hidden reference to the Time-Warner merger of 1996? In the opening sequence, the town of "Warnerstock" (not-so-subtle) was all happy and prosperous until the king passed away and the evil king of "Ticktocia" (tic-toc...Time maybe?) took control through a hostile takeover. the people of Warnerstock were forced to turn a profit...and so-on and so-on. The show was always full of obscure and adult references cleverly and tastefully hidden and mixed with the kiddie humor. Maybe an expression of some internal riff with the whole merger, 'cleverly' displayed in Animaniac fashion.
