  • Trivia

    • After this episode aired, there's an extended clip with a more graphic version of the Toot/Xandir sex scene that has not been aired in the televised version of this episode. The part has been circulating around the internet until it has been removed by all sites that has been hosting it. This part can be seen on the Season 2 DVD.

      Also, in way of promoting the upcoming DVD, Comedy Central showed this episode in Secret Stash on September 2007 with the sex scene uncensored.

    • The Legend of Zelda (Legend of Xandir) is a Nintendo game. The controller was for a Sony PS2.

    • As Toot inputs the first cheat code for "Super Jump" she says the code out loud. She speaks "A" and "B" as she pushes buttons on the controller, but Sony Playstation 2 controllers have no "A" or "B" buttons.

    • Xandir didn't have his nipple piercings in this episode until the last scene.

  • Quotes

    • (Live action cow poops)
      Wooldoor: I love it when he does that.

    • Wooldoor: I put some peanut butter on my balls! (holds up tennis balls) So you'll have more incentive to chase after them when I stick them up my ass!

    • Toot: Guys, I need a favor, my ten year camp reunion is coming up...
      Spanky: What kind of camp? Fat camp?
      (Everyone laughs)
      Toot: ....Yes.
      (Everyone laughs again)

    • Spanky: Ooooooh. Live action poo.

    • Captain Hero: May señor L. Ron Hubbard watch over us all.

    • Foxxy: You're such a pretty cow.
      Clara: We love you.
      Spanky: Nice horsey.

    • Captain Hero: I've always dreamed of meeting a women with six penises.

    • Captain Hero (while passing through the Future): God dammit! We've got to stop this crazy thing!

    • Toot: You felt almost as good inside me as I did inside you.
      Xandir(looking horrified and shocked from sex with Toot): Please...don't...talk right now.

    • Toot: (suddenly appears among the cast mates after the "fight" between Live Action Cow and Live Action Squirrel With Big Balls) Thank God I'm in the other story.

    • Clara: What's wrong with Live Action cow?
      Captain Hero: Let me see. Red eyes. Foaming mouth. Zikes! Live Action Cow has got rabbis!
      Clara: It's pronounced "rabies". Although they're both incurable diseases. (cut to the native from "The One Wherein There Is A Big Twist (2)" making one of his rim shots)

    • Clara (While driving through Bedrock): Well, this is what they get for constantly having a gay old time.

    • Clara: (while passing South Park, Colorado) Where are we?
      Foxxy: Child, we in South Park.
      Spanky: See, now this is funny. I bet if we lived here, more people would watch.

    • Wooldoor: It's the most feared creature in the live action forest! A live action squirrel with big balls!

  • Notes

    • In each town (Bedrock, Future, and South Park), the Foxxy 5 van has the same animation of motion as the cartoons the towns are taken from.

    • Despite the fact that Live-Action Cow is quite obviously female, everyone refers to her as 'he'.

    • Toot: You felt almost as good inside me as I did inside you.
      Yet another hint towards Toot being a hermaphrodite.

    • Foxxy's live action feet are shown again. They haven't been seen since "Hot Tub."

    • This episode revealed that Timmy, the child Foxxy claimed to have sold on the black market, was killed by Foxxy because she thought he had rabies when he was really brushing his teeth.

    • Spanky: If we lived here, more people would watch.

      When the gang goes by South Park to find Live Action Cow, Spanky says that line, referring to South Park having more viewers than Drawn Together, most likely because of the things they do to relate the world from "most people's view" according to creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker.

    • When Live Action Cow dies, the traditional cartoon "X's" appear over its eyes.

    • The code Toot uses to give Xandir a high jump is the infamous Konami Code.

    • The Live Action Squirrel With Big Balls is a popular picture that has circulated on the internet for years.

    • When Xandir and Toot are talking in the cabin she pulls out a razor and cuts herself, bleeding red. Until this point every episode she had cut herself in, she would bleed grey.

    • Xandir's game is called The Legend of Xandir and appears to be for the Sony Playstation 2.

  • Allusions

    • The Far Side
      The goat being lowered from the ceiling during the "Enchantment Under The Seafood Dance" is drawn in the same style that Gary Larson used to depict animals in his cartoons.

    • News Anchor: A rabid Live Action Cow is on a killing spree throughout the cartoon universe. We take you live to Springfield, Conneticut.

      This is a reference to a running in-joke in The Simpsons, where the state in which Springfield is located is never mentioned. In some cases, this is even pointed out within The Simpsons itself.

    • Born on the Fourth of July
      Toot's flashback in which she references a Tom Cruise movie alludes to the film, Born on the Fourth of July, in which Cruise portrays Vietnam veteran and anti-war activist, Ron Kovic.

    • Back To The Future
      The dance Xandir and Toot go to, the "Enchantment Under the Seafood Dance" is a reference to the "Enchantment Under the Sea Dance" from the movie Back to the Future.

    • Ed Gein
      Wooldoor's macabre attempt to fulfill the dying man's last wishes alludes to American serial killer Ed Gein. One of Ed's victims was shot with a rifle and cut open like a fish (as Wooldoor did to the driver). Ed would also wear his victims skin (as Wooldoor did). Ed Gein is the inspiration for Texas Chainsaw Massacre character Leatherface, Psycho's Norman Bates, and is also similiar to Buffalo Bill in The Silence of the Lambs.

    • What About Mimi?
      The large red-haired woman is a grown-up version of Mimi, and her friends are also there.

    • Star Trek
      Ham, dressed as a red-shirted Lt. taps on his shirt badge and teleports, using Star Trek effects and sound effects.

    • Fat Albert
      The master of ceremonies for the fat camp reunion dance is a parody of Bill Cosby creation Fat Albert, star of the animated series Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids.

    • Kenny McCormick
      When the crew is going through South Park, the only surviving inhabitant is Kenny (a South Park character known for being gruesomely killed in nearly every episode).

    • The following towns that the crew went to in search of Live Action Cow are:
      Bedrock from The Flintstones, The Future from The Jetsons, and the town of South Park from South Park.

    • A Moment Like This
      The last little bit of the episode where Toot is singing, she is singing the song "A Moment Like This", recorded by the first American Idol Kelly Clarkson.

    • Simpsons
      The two skeletons we see lying under the attic's floor are Lisa and Bart from The Simpsons. This is a reference to The Simpsons which always shows something in between the floorboards or buried in the ground when they pan up or down through the house.

    • Legend Of Zelda
      The video game cheatbook is for a game called The Legend of Xandir, parodying The Legend of Zelda. This further proves that Xandir is a parody of Link.

    • Barney and Friends
      When Toot ends up in the hospital one of the doctors standing over her is Barney from Barney & Friends.

    • Harvey Comics
      The main fattie's character design is based off of Little Lotta from Harvey Comics.

    • The Birds
      The scene where the birds attack the Drawn Together gang is reminisent of Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds.

    • The Goonies
      Toots performs the "Truffle Shuffle" to celebrate getting Xandir to accompany her to the fat camp reunion. This dance was originally performed by Jeff Cohen (Chunk) in The Goonies.

    • Mario Kart
      When the fatties were messing with Xandir's cheat codes, Xandir turns into a Mario Kart racer.

    • The Jetsons
      While passing Orbit City, Captain Hero says, "God damn it, we have to stop this crazy thing." This is a reference to George Jetson's most famous catchphrase "Jane! Stop this crazy thing!," a line he utters when he takes Astro for a walk and gets stuck on the speeding treadmill after Astro chases a cat, usually seen at the end credits.

    • Toot (using the cheat code book): Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Start...

      The cheat code that Toot used to control Xandir is the same button sequence of the same cheat code known as The Konami Code from video game company Konami. The cheat code was used on several Konami games like Contra for the NES and Konami's Collectors Arcade Advance for the GBA.

    • Carrie
      The scene where Toot is dumped with blood on her body is similiar to the one in the movie Carrie.

    • Clara: Serves them right for having a gay old time.

      Clara says this when the group drives through Bedrock, and see the massacre. "We'll have a gay old time" is a lyric from the Flintstones theme song. But in this context gay means happy.

    • A Tale Of Two Cities
      The title is a parody of A Tale of Two Cities, a historical novel by Charles Dickens in 1869.
