      • The act of "loaning out" the Warner siblings to TV animation studios is loosely based off when Warner Bros. did so for real one time in 1972. Warner loaned out most of the Looney Tunes characters (sans Bugs Bunny) to Filmation Associates (whom also animated Fat Albert, parodied in this episode) for an ABC "Saturday Superstar Movie" TV special, combining the Warner Bros. cartoon stars with one of Filmation's own original properties, in Daffy Duck and Porky Pig Meet the Groovie Goolies. Afterwards, Warner never did such a thing again, until their cartoon studio reopened in 1980 (it had previously shut down in 1969) they would outsource any new Looney Tunes animated material to Friz Freleng and Chuck Jones's own companies (DePatie-Freleng Enterprises and Chuck Jones Productions, respectively)

      • The New Adventures of Mighty Mouse


        The entire concept of parodying limited animation cartoons of the 1960s and 1970s here is very similar to an episode of The New Adventures of Mighty Mousefrom 1987, entitled Don't Touch That Dialand involving our hero being zapped into similar parodies of old cartoons and criticizing the animation and plots. That episode was co-written by Tom Minton, whom also wrote this Animaniacsepisode.
