    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (3)

      • Vintage footage from a real Challenge of the Superfriends episode was used when Black Vulcan explained to Peanut what his first time fighting an evil villain was like. Specifically, the footage was from episode two called The Fearian Invasion.

      • Robin has no super powers. Why would Birdman talk to Batman about the problem?

      • To get into the Justice League, you have to be an experienced hero. However, Black Vulcan's first time was when he was already in the League. We know because he fought him in the Hall Of Justice while looking for Aquaman. He shouldn't be in the Justice League in the first place unless he was just visiting.

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Phil: [humping Doggy Daddy] I'm the alpha male!
        Phil: I'm the alpha male!

      • Phil: I'd like to welcome you all to the bi-annual... Ha ha ha! "Bi"! Sebben & Sebben Board of Director's meeting.

        [the scene changes to Harvey's office, where he runs in]

      • Peter Potamus: Board of directors? More like the board of erectors!

      • Peanut: Oh get away from me.. dad. You don't understand.

      • Harvey: (Reading From Book) There comes a time when every young superhero starts to get their special powers.
        Peanut: What do you know Harvey? (Slams Door)
        Harvey: Not a lot!
        Mightor: So I guess we're not gonna need the banana and the condom.

    • NOTES (5)

      • When Phil makes the ‘bi’ comment at the board meeting, Snagglepuss looks around, nervous. In the ‘Drawn Together’ episode ‘Gay Bash’ we see him at Xandir’s gay party.
