Why You Ackin' So Cray-Cray? is a television program that Mabel and her pet pig, Waddles, are briefly seen watching in "Fight Fighters." An episode of the program is only seen for seven seconds before the show cuts to commercial. In it, a large built brunette woman wearing pearls asks a thin, young blonde woman, "Girl, why you ackin' so cray-cray?" It is likely a reference to talk shows such as The Tyra Banks Show and Oprah.
Mabel later references it in the episode, asking Stan Pines why he is acting so "cray-cray." He then accuses her of being the one that is acting "cray-cray," and leaves the room, irritated. It is brought up once again when Grunkle Stan admits to Mabel that he is, in fact, afraid of heights, and asks her if that's "really so cray-cray."
The phrase has since entered popular culture and the internet.
