Villains in Bat-Mite's fantasy: Joker, Penguin, Ridder, Catwoman, Mr. Freeze (in his Mr. Zero alias), Two-Face, Mad Hatter, Tweedledum and Tweedledee, Catman, Kite Man, Polka-Dot Man, Killer Moth, Tiger Shark, and Zebra-Man.
Bat-Mite: Yes, you've got a question?
Fanboy: I always felt Batman was best suited to the role of gritty urban crime detective, but now you guys have got him up against Santas, and Easter bunnies? I'm sorry, but that's not my Batman!
Panel Member: (hands Bat-Mite a piece of paper) Here, read this.
Bat-Mite: "Batman's rich history allows him to be interpreted in a multitude of ways. To be sure, this is a lighter incarnation, but is certainly no less valid and true to the character's roots then the tortured avenger, crying out for mommy and daddy." And besides, those Easter bunnies looked really scary, right?
Catman: You're a long way from Gotham, Batman.
Batman: But never far from crime, Catman.
Batman: You're not from around here, are you?
Bat-Mite: I'm from the fifth dimension. Beings from my realm have powers that you 3-Ds take for magical.
Batman: A friend of mine in Metropolis told me about menaces like you.
Bat-Mite: I'm not a menace. You're my hero!
Batman: Green Arrow's going to love this.
Batman: (about Calendar Man) There, I defeated your villain of choice. Now, will you go home?
Bat-Mite: Whoa, whoa. That was never a fair fight. You've got skills and weapons. All he's got is a daily planner.
Batman: Then we both agree it would be best if you returned to your home dimension and let me continue to fight crime in peace. Right?
Bat-Mite: Right. But I still think I could...
Batman: I'll give you an official Batarang. and I'll sign it.

Batman mentions a "friend in Metropolis" who has dealt with beings like Bat-Mite before. This is a nod to Superman, and his 5th-dimensional opponent Mr. Myxzptlk, who possesses many of the same reality-warping powers as Bat-Mite does.
The scene where Bat-Mite confronts Batman's enemies is taken directly from the 1945 cartoon "The Great Piggy Bank Robbery," starring Daffy Duck as "Duck Twacy," a parody of Dick Tracy. This episode's writer, Paul Dini has already parodied this scene once before, in the Tiny Toons episode "Inside Plucky Duck," where Plucky Duck takes on the role of Bat-Duck.
Character bios: Bat-Mite, Ace the Bathound, Catman, Calendar King

Injoke: The shot of Bat-Mite as Batman appearing on the rooftop, silhouetted against a red sky, is the opening shot from Batman: The Animated Series. The series theme plays in the background.
Injoke: When Bat-Mite zaps Batman because he doesn't look cool enough he transforms him into various incarnations of him throughout the years including the vampire Batman from Bloodstorm, Bat-Hombre from Batman #56 (1949), Zebra Batman from Detective Comics #275, the Adam West 60s Batman, the Batman Forever Batman, and Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns.
The creators of the show appear in the panel that Bat-Mite moderates at a Fifth Dimension convention. They are sitting and wearing the same outfits they had on at the 2008 Comic Con in San Diego. The creators that appear are Andrea Romano, Diedrich Bader, Michael Chang, Ben Jones, Brandon Vietti, Michael Jelenic, James Tucker and Sam Register. Paul Dini, who wrote the episode, and Warner Bros. producer Bruce Timm also make cameo appearances in the episode. Dini, who was dressed as Harley Quinn, made a similar cameo in the Batman: TAS episode "Joker's Millions."
Bat-Mite popping out of a drum, and saying, "That's all folks!" references the classic Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies, which invariably ended with Porky Pig popping out of a drum, and saying, "Eh-eh-eh! That's all, folks!"
