They make their own movie but unfortunately for Thaddeus Plotz, it’s not with Warner Bros. Plotz gets fired and it’s up to the Warners to save him.

L.A. Dot

We are given a preview of the Warner’s film and get to see the big musical number! Dot mistakes a bus with LADOT written on it as a salute to her being in Los Angeles and the cutest celebrity in Hollywood. A sample of the original draft of the song is played from Animaniacs in Concert. You can see the full video here or by going to the Animanicast YouTube page.

You Gotta Do the Schmooze

While waiting to see Mr Plotz, the Warners teach Wakko the art of schmoozing people in Hollywood to get what you want. Wakko doesn’t quite get it, which leads to some funny lyrics and explanations.

It’s New Years Eve

The Warners save Mr. Plotz from homelessness and celebrate the New Year with a fun song. Kelly and Joey discuss some of the celebrity cameos while Nathan proposes that the entire second act might be some sort of inception scenario!
