The episode "Mighty's Benefit Plan" features a singing group called Elwy and the Tree Weasles, an obvious lampoon of Alvin and the Chipmunks. Their creator, Ross Bagdasarian, was unflatteringly represented by the character Sandy Bottomfeeder. Ralph Bakshi used to work with Bagdasarian and did not get along with him. The constant appearance of cheerios coming out of Sandy's mouth is a reference to Honey Nut Cheerios and their aggressive promotion of The Chipmunk Adventure movie of the 80's. See more »
I think I was like 6 when this was on the air and it used to freak me out. not that I didn't like it, I remember totally not understanding any of it. but, 4 years later when Ren and Stimpy premiered, I became totally obsessed with the same warped comedy. I wish I could find a copy of this cartoon. it, and the twisted adventures of felix the cat. that reminds me Ralph Bakshi did NOT create Fritz the Cat. He stole it from R. Crumb. anyway, this is a great cartoon, highly recommended
