Wakkety Yak is an animatronic yak from Razzle Dazzle's Pizza-Tainment Palace.


When Homer was a teenager, he worked at Razzle Dazzle's Pizza-Tainment Palace where he operated the animatronic band. After Wakkety Yak malfunctioned and started to scare the kids, Homer took over manually and rapped a song, which made everyone happy. Homer then turned the animatronic band into the Phuntime Phunky Phour. However, the animatronics got taken by the FBI when it was found out that Gil was using the restaurant to deal drugs.

Years later, the Simpson family went to Razzle Dazzle's Pizza-Tainment Palace for Ralph's birthday party. However, Homer couldn't face going in due to his traumatic childhood memories. Marge, Bart, Lisa, and Moe then decided to reunite the band to make Homer happy again. Bart and Lisa went to see Gil and found that Wakkety Yak had been sold to Herman's Military Antiques. They went to see Herman who revealed that he had bought the animatronic to test out Kevlar vests. He then said that he had just sold Wakkety Yak to J. J. Abrams because J. J. wanted it in his office.

Bart and Lisa broke into J.J. Abrams Productions to steal Wakkety Yak but they were stopped by a security guard. When Homer went to pick up Bart and Lisa, he saw Wakkety Yak and was happy to see his old friend. When J. J. Abrams saw Homer's reaction, J. J. decided to reunite the band. Homer was happy to see his old friends back together again. However, J. J. decided that he wanted to turn them into a movie and took the animatronics away. He then made the movie Agents of P.I.Z.Z.A. starring the four of them.

When Homer tried to destroy the movie at the Aztec Theater, he was then shown that the animatronics there there too. J. J. also had then reprogrammed to dispense frogurt. Homer then happily ate frogurt from Wakkety Yak's mouth.
