    • NOTES (1)

      • This cartoon was first aired as part of episode 27. The gag credit for this episode is: Bleb - Small gathering of fluid under the skin.

    • ALLUSIONS (3)

      • The word that Pinky tries to stop Brain from yelling is 'Ricola'. This is a nod to the famous advertisements for Ricola cough drops, which always feature a man in the mountains yelling "Riiiicolaaaa".

      • The title is a reference to the long-running home improvement series This Old House.

      • Classical music allusions on the soundtrack: Wagner, Liebestod from "Tristan und Isolde" (while Brain is mourning his ultimate failure to take over the world); Wagner, Prelude to "Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg" (while the people are cheering the new ruler of the world, the yam).
