    • Dick Clark's Animal Bloopers The 'Ape Smells Finger' segment is possibly an allusion to the video clip from one of Dick Clark's "animal bloopers" specials, in which a young chimpanzee scratches its hindquarters, smells the finger with which it scratched, throws up its arms as if in horror, and falls off the tree limb upon which it was sitting.

    • The Ren & Stimpy Show The unicorns seen in the Noah's Ark segment are made from the Mr. Horse character from The Ren & Stimpy Show.

    • M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand) The man, boy, and robot in the red car, and the car itself, during the race short are all from the toy series M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand). Matt Trakker is driving, the boy is his son, and the robot is called T-Bob. T-Bob and the kid were sold together as a two pack. T-Bob transformed into a scooter that the kid rode. The orange Pontiac GTO is called Stinger, which did not come with Matt. The GTO came with a character called Bruno Sheppard. Matt came with a red IROC Camaro called Thunderhawk. Matt's mask is not used in the sequence, though.

    • All Dogs Go To Heaven The two heads of the race were Burt Reynolds and Dom DeLouise. These two previously starred as partner characters on All Dogs Go To Heaven as Charlie and Itchy. Note Dom's "Woof" in the episode.

    • Cannonball Run The race sequence is a parody of the 1981 film Cannonball Run.
