Animation Production by: Starburst Animation Co., Ltd
The Adventures of the Gummi Bears:
When Drakken is trapped on "Puppet Pals", a series of lines are heard that go "Here", "There", "Where?" This is a variation on the famous line from Disney's Adventures of the Gummi Bears cartoon, "Here, There, Everywhere."
The way this episode employs static to represent channel flips is taken directly from the show called Robot Chicken, a stop-motion cartoon which often features short TV show parodies among its many sketches.
That 70's Show:
That 1670's Show is an allusion to That 70's Show.
The pink-haired spy girl looking for "the device" sequence is based on the drama series, Alias, in which Jennifer Garner's main character spends much of her time looking for a near-legendary, "Rimbaldi Device."
The "Fearless Ferret" opening titles (which Ron and Drakken find themselves stuck in) are based on the opening title sequence of the 1960's live action Batman series.
P.A.L.S./Friends Character References:
Guy: Chandler, Richard, etc.
There is a scene in this episode that resembles the Teletubbies series.
One of the shows parodies was similar to Hollywood Squares, which is a tic-tac-toe question game; some of the characters in this episode were in a similar game show.
Ron: The perfect naco!
When Ron attempts to get the perfect naco from the Beuno Nacho commercial, it is a reference to how fast food commercials always show food that is of much higher quality than the real meal.
The scene in which Kim and Shego are told to bungee jump off of a skyscraper and the way the host presented the scenario is an exact reference to host Joe Rogan and to his series Fear Factor.
Host: You've been voted out of the igloo.
This scene was a parody of the hit reality program Survivor, in which people are voted out of the location they are attempting to survive in.
The scene in the cartoon Scamper and Bitey was a reference to the classic series Tom and Jerry.
The title of one of the segments in this episode was "The Real North Pole", this is a reference to a real series titled The Real World.
The scene with Kim in space makes several references to Star Trek. Not only is she wearing a red shirt, in which the red shirted characters in that series would usually die in the episode, as Wade told Kim; the Space Commander also calls Kim Ms. Enson, in which most of the red shirted characters were called Enson, so both of these serve as references towards the Star Trek series.
The premise of this episode is quite similar to the 1992 comedy film, Stay Tuned, in which the characters in that movie were sucked into a television realm by an evil satellite dish they recently acquired.
Towards the end of the episode when the monkeys are running into the portal; Ron falls out of the tree he was in and plummets straight into the stampeding monkeys. This is very similar to the way Mufasa fell into the stampeding wildebeest in the 1994 Disney film, The Lion King.
Kim: You were on Pals? I love that show!
The series Kim is referring to is a parody on the show Friends.
TV Announcer: The Running of the Monkeys
This is a reference to the annual Running of the Bulls festivals during the Pamplona Festival in Spain.
When Dr. Drakken's lifestyle was changed by the Evil Eye for the Bad Guy crew, it was similar to the Bravo series Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.
Kim: Am I missing something here?
When the starship captain tells his crew to brace for impact, the crew fall over in various places but Kim remains standing and she says the above line. This is a reference to how such the shows they were in were really fake and the actors had to pretend to be knocked over; at this time, Kim didn't realize that she was in a television realm.
