  • Allusions

    • Funnybone: Open the pod bay doors, Pal.
      Pal: I'm afraid I can't do that, Dave.
      The computer in Joke-A-Lot refers to Funnybone as Dave, setting up for this gag. This is a dead-on reference to 2001: A Space Odyssey, in which the main character Dave makes the exact same request of the computer HAL 9000 and it tells him "I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that."

    • Funnybone: When this is over, I'm getting a real henchman. A parrot or something.
      Griping about his moronic fly henchmen, the film's villain references the Disney classic Aladdin, in which the villain Jafar was always accompanied by his loud-mouthed, evil parrot, Iago.
