    Notes (5)

    • Find Emmitt Nervend: Three times in this episode.

    • Both "Apex" (the company that makes the chip) and "Pinnacle" (the name of the chip) are synonyms of the word "Acme," a name commonly associated with faulty technology in Warner Brothers cartoons.

    • The caricature character of Jack Valenti was voiced by Valenti himself. Jack Valenti was head of the MPAA until mid-2004 and really did invent the movie ratings system he tries to blab on about in this episode.

    • The theme song is changed slightly in this episode. The line "Freaka-zoo!" becomes "Free kazoo!". Actually, that isn't really different. Well they changed the animation, anyway.

    • Gutierrez is physically based on the man who voiced him, Ricardo Montalban.

    Trivia (1)

    • In the episode 'The Chip', Mrs. Douglas states that Dexter is seventeen years old. However, in the episode 'Dance of Doom', which takes place after the events in 'The Chip', she said that Dexter is sixteen years old.

    Allusions (1)

    • At one point Guiterrez (voiced by Ricardo Montalb├ín) considers putting 'ooey gooey worms' in people's ears. This alludes to the movie "Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, where Khan" (also played by Montalb├ín) goes through with such a threat.
