    Allusions (7)

    • After everyone gets locked out of the house, you see Frankie holding the instruction manual. The thing is the pages you would normally see on a book face to the right when you look at it but the pages in this episode are facing to the left when you look at it.

    • In many of the episodes, including this one, if you look hard enough, you can see the Power Puff Girls on Frankie's white shirt.

    • Cheese saying "Sprinkle, sprinkle, little bar, what I wonder is a cat", is possibly not only a reference to the famous poem, "The Star", but to Walt Disney's Alice in Wonderland, where the Tea Mouse sings "Twinkle twinkle little bat, how I wonder what you're at."

    • Cheese: Fishy crackers! This is a clear reference to the Pepperidge Farm Goldfish brand of crackers. It's also possible he's referring to Barnum's Animal Crackers.

    • Frankie: Bugs Dummy. Another reference to the lead protagonist from Looney Tunes.
