Ten Short Films About Wakko Warner

Wakko is the subject of ten short films. Some films are incredibly short and others feel like they could have extended to full length cartoons. The hosts discuss their favorite moments and which segments they feel could be extended. 

No Time for Love

A cuckoo bird comes out of his clock and falls in love with a canary. The cuckoo clock bird attempts in vain to be with her. Eventually they do end up living together in the cuckoo clock. Frank Welker voices both of the main characters in this sweet cartoon.

The Boo Network

The WB network is in trouble so Thaddeus Plotz hires Chicken Boo to come up with a new lineup. What follows is an assortment of chicken themed shows such as “Sixty Clucks” and “The Egg Files.” This is one of the longest Chicken Boo segments and while it is longer, it’s still very funny. Eventually Boo is revealed to be a chicken however after everyone rips his clothes off!
