For what it's worth, when they talked about the kid hitting his head, they mentioned he "heard" birds chirping, not "saw" them. In fact, that would be consistant with the entire episode, where the only visible cartoon element in the real world were the holes (most of which were non-functioning when we saw them). Every other gag used a physical object that acted like a cartoon element (the heart, the anvil, the cake and candle, the "bang" flag, etc.).
