    • NOTES (1)

      • This cartoon was first aired as part of episode 30. The gag credit for this episode is: Helmintgusasus - Disease caused by worms invading the body.

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • The opening scene is a word for word recreation of the famous beginning of the film Hollywood Boulevard.

      • Brain Noir:

        The title is a play on the term "film noir", which is generally used to describe gritty crime dramas from the 1940's and 50's. The episode parodies the style and nods to a number of noir films.

      • Brain: Get your hand off me, you damp, hairy hamster!

        ... in homage to the classic film Planet of the Ape's best known line... "Take your stinking paws off me, you damned dirty ape!"
