News Anchor/Sweaty Salesman/Pompous Bearded Guy
During the "sentemental music" section (where Bloo and Mac are looking out the windows from their respective sleeping areas) you can see a full moon while it's raining. Although it's normal to see the moon while it's raining, when it switches to Bloo for the first time, you also see stars in the background. This would be a mistake as if it was raining out it would be too cloudy to see the stars that brightly.
Bloo: (Mumbled) I wanna be a celebrity.
Kip: What's that? Can't hear you!
Bloo: (Clearer) I want to be a celebrity!
Kip: Good, that's what I thought now get into your cage like a good celebrity.
Mac: (On Foster's porch talking about Bloo) I looked right into his eyes guys! And he looked into mine!
Wilt: What did you see?
Bloo: (Singing) Kip Snip is his name, producin' is his game! He promised me lots of fortune and fame... and now I can't go home and he's to blame! Yah! No, no, no! I can't go home and he's to blame! But I'm De-o, oh, oh. I'm De-o. And... I can't, yah!... Go, yah! Hoooome! Someone save me from this man tonight!
Bloo: Doctor! Doctor! My wife thinks that she's a porcupine!
Doctor: Gee, that's a prickly situation.
Bloo: Doctor! Doctor! I swallowed a roll of film!
Doctor: Gee, let's hope nothing develops!
(They dance again)
Bloo: Doctor! Doctor! Kip the producer forces me to sleep in a cage!
Doctor: Sounds like you're a little too tense! (The doctor dances, but Bloo doesn't) Wait, what did you say?
Wilt: (About Bloo) At first, he did funny songs and sketches like "My Evil Producer Has Kidnapped Me and Won't Let Me Go," "The Somebody Save Me Magic Show," and "I Get By With a Little Help From My Imaginary - -" (Slaps himself on the forehead) Man, I am so stupid!
Bloo: Got B.O.? Get DEO!
(Later, in Spanish) ¿Tienes B.O.? ¡Consiga DEO! (Translation of the above)
Kip: You think I care my product stinks? You think I care about how people smell? I don't care! (Audience gasps) In fact, DEO brand deoderant makes people smell worse!
Cop #1: That's it pal. We're taking you downtown.
Cop #2: You're going to be spending the rest of your life rotting in prison.
Kip: Arrest me?! For what?
Cop #2: Article 254, section E: false advertising!
Kip: Noooooooooooo! (Audience cheers)
Bloo: Well, that's our show. And now, a word from our sponsor.
Eduardo: (Wearing a potato costume) Potatoes, potatoes, potatoes, potatoes! Everyone eat potatoes! (Off to the side, Mac and the gang look speechless) This spud's for you! (Pulls a potato out from his soap costume)
Bloo: Hey, Ted!
Todd: It's TODD!
"Spunky Reporter" Erin Peterson: Why don't you tell us a little about yourself?
Eduardo: ... I'm purple...
Erin: Uh-huh... anything else?
Eduardo: ... I... like potatoes...
Erin: Well, there you have it! Eduardo is purple and likes potatoes! Be sure to check our web site for more information. I'll be back next week for another "Friday's Friend" along with "Monday's Pet" and "Wednesday's Lost Socks and Missing Keys." Back to you, Ted.
Todd: It's Todd!
Kip Snip: Come with me. We're going to make you a star!
Bloo: Wow! A limo!
Kip Snip: Yeah. My car is right next to it.
(After Bloo's debut as DEO, at the end of the ad we hear this)
Announcer: Deo with it! Strong enough for an ape yet pH balanced for you.
Bloo: It's the roll-on I was born to play!
Animation Studio: Boulder Media, Ltd.
There was no title card for this episode in the UK.
Human Debuts: Todd, "Spunky reporter" Erin Peterson, Kip Snip.
Imaginary Friend Debut: Deoder Ann.
The scene where Bloo signs the contracts is taken from "Store Wars." Even Kip Snip's voice was the same as the salesperson from the aforementioned episode, and spoke in the exact same synch.
Running Gag: Everyone calling Todd "Ted."
The local TV station newscast has a "Friday's Friend Section", along with "Monday's Pet" and "Wednesday's Lost Socks and Missing Keys."
Madame Foster and Mr. Herriman are absent in this episode.
Credits: The doctor dances while Bloo looks at him.
Title Card Sound: "Deo" theme music.
Chris from "Frankie My Dear" cameos in this episode, though he doesn't speak. He throws away a stick of Deo after Kip says it doesn't work.
Mac and Bloo know morse code.
UK airdate: April 21, 2005.
n/a: Nice Burger
This is a reference to Good Burger, a cult comedy movie starring Kenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell, which started as a series of sketches on Nickelodeon's All That.
Todd being called Ted is similar to a running gag in Pokemon where everyone calls Butch of the other Team Rocket (with Cassidy) a different but similar name
The news reporters in this episode look like the reporters in the movie Osmosis Jones.
Erin Peterson: Back to you, Ted.
Todd: The name's Todd!
The renaming of Todd as Ted as well as his look are likely references to actor Ted Knight, who was best known as the bumbling anchorman Ted Baxter on The Mary Tyler Moore Show.
n/a: A Movie Studio & Hokeywood
Look at the exterior shot of the movie studio. It closely resembles the famous gate at Paramount Studios in Hollywood, and the "Hokeywood" sign is a parody of the famous Hollywood sign.
n/a: Kip Snip
The character name of Bloo's Hollywood producer, Kip Snip, may be based on a character from the Broadway and movie musical Little Shop of Horrors named Skip Snip.
n/a: DEO Packaging
The packaging as Bloo dressed as DEO is oddly similar to that of Mennen's Speed Stick brand of deodorants and anti-persprirants.
DEO Announcer: Strong enough for an ape yet pH balanced for you.
A reference to the Secret brand of anti-persparant and deodorant line of products made for females that say "Strong enough for a man but made for a woman."
Episode Title: Sweet Stench of Success.
It refers to the title the 1957 movie The Sweet Smell of Success.
Eduardo: This spud's for you.
This is from the popular 1970's and 1980's Budweiser slogan "This Bud's For You" and from a 1975 Saturday Night Live advertising spoof called "Spud Beer" where the jingle includes the slogan "This spud's for you."
Announcer: From Hollywood, California, it's The Deo Good Time Variety Hour, starring Deo!
There was a series on CBS from 1969 to 1972 titled The Glen Campbell Good Time Hour which may have been derived for the title of the show where Bloo rats out Kip Snip.
Announcer: And now we return to Inside the Actor's Mind.
This reference comes from the title of the Bravo series Inside the Actor's Studio.
Announcer: Tune in next week as Deo jumps the shark.
When "jumping the shark" is used, it means that a show has run past its prime. The term comes from an episode of Happy Days set in Hollywood where Fonzie (played by Henry Winkler) jumps over a shark tank on water skis.
