    • Bloo Clone: Do you have Prince Albert in a can?
      This is a reference to an old phone prank call that asks the question. When the victim - in this case, Mr. Herriman -
      responds "I don't know what you're talking about," the prankster responds with "Well, you better let him out (before he sufficates!)" In addition, we see a can with "Prince Albert" on it hopping by from screen right to left as the other Bloos laugh.

      "Prince Albert" is a brand of pipe tobacco, named after Queen Victoria's consort. So strictly speaking, the joke would only work if it was aimed at a grocer who sells tobacco. Mr. Herriman, who isn't a grocer, doesn't understand the question. This isn't the first time that Herriman is the victim of a phone prank. Coco tricked him out of the house in "Partying Is Such Sweet Soiree."
