    • (Johnny and the alien are riding a bike, and they drive off a ramp over a canyon)
      Johnny
      : Quick, use your magic powers to lift us!

      Johnny: Bummer.
      (Their silhouettes can be seen in front of the full moon, as they end up crashing into a tree).


      Johnny's idea of the alien making their bike fly is an allusion to the 1982 science-fiction film E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, produced and directed by Steven Spielberg. In the movie's climax, the titular alien uses telekinesis to levitate the bike Elliot (the human that befriends him, played by Henry Thomas) and him were riding on, trying to escape the authorities that were chasing them - which was also parodied in this episode of Johnny Bravo.

    • Science-fiction movie allusions:

      Carl
      : You know, I've always wanted to meet a highly developed alien. (to the alien, making hand gestures) Live long and prosper. Na-Nu Na-Nu. Shazbot. Klaatu Barada Nikto.


      When Carl first encounters the alien from the segment Alien Confidential, he greets him by using various lines from various science-fiction films throughout the years:


      Live long an Prosper is the so-called Vulcan Salute, made famous by Mr. Spock (played by Leonard Nimoy) on the original Star Trek television series in the late 1960s.


      Both Na-Nu Na-Nu and Shazbot are references to the Mork & Mindy television show (1978-1982), starring Robin Williams. While Na-Nu Na-Nu was a greeting (in fact parody of the aforementioned Live long and Prosper), the term Shazbot was actually a profanity Mork used on the show.


      Klaatu Barada Nikto is a phrase originating from the 1951 science fiction film The Day the Earth Stood Still, and also used in its 2008 re-make, starring Keanu Reeves.

    • Planet of the Apes:

      Johnny: It's a madhouse. A madhouse!

      This quote, used by Johnny in Panic in Jerky Town, is from the 1968 science-fiction movie Planet of the Apes, directed by Franklin J. Schaffner and starring Charlton Heston.

    • Alien Confidential: - Title and plot

      This episode parodies the 1982 science-fiction movie E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, directed by Steven Spielberg.

      Also, the title of the episode is also a spoof of the 1997 movie L.A. Confidential, directed by Curtis Hanson.

    • Panic in Jerky Town: - Plot

      The episode is basically a parody of the 1971 movie Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, directed by Mel Stuart.

      The episode also uses elements from the 1973 science-fiction movie Soylent Green, directed by Richard Fleischer and starring Charlton Heston.
