Trivia: Drew not believing any of Jade's stories will become a running gag throughout the rest of the series.
(After Shendu fires out flames from his mouth)
Tohru: Whoa, I did not know he could do that.
Finn: Whoa! Big man can move!
Drew: Yeah, and I bet the snake lady was there too!
Jade: Viper? Nah, that was in New York!
Rabbit talisman was found in a tortoise shell, and it gives you the power of super speed.
On tv, just before Finn changes the channel back (as per Valmont's orders), you can see El Toro Fuente raising a championship belt.
First appearance of Drew.
The turtle in this episode is named "Aesop," after the famous writer of fables, who wrote "The Tortoise and the Hare."
The man that Aesop is being sold to is named Karl Nivor, an obvious play on the name of meat eaters, carnivore.
Jade: Uhh, what's up, Doc?
The line is a trademark of Bugs Bunny (also owned by Warner Brothers), who frequently pops up next to another character(usually one hunting him) to say the line. What makes this case funnier is that Carl Nivore is in fact a Doctor (like Hannibal Lecter, see other Cultural Reference).
Carl Nivore: American Condor on a plate of Fava Beans (he then makes a sucking sound)
Carl Nivore seems to be inspired by Hannibal the Cannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins) from "Silence of the Lambs", who says, "I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti." He even makes the same "slslslsls" sucking sound with his mouth.
