  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Hungry Hungry Hippos
      In the second channel flip, the third character shown holding a cardboard sign is a pink hippo, and his sign says "Hungry Hungry." This is an allusion to the classic kids game, Hungry Hungry Hippos.

    • Dragon's Lair
      The death sequence of Dirk near the end of the Dragon's Lair parody and the seemingly video game-like sequences happened in the Dragon's Lair Laser Disc Game.

    • One sketch parodies the insanely successful (but now discontinued) Six Flags ads, in which a creepy old guy, later dubbed Mr. Six, drives his giant bus into suburbia to bring people away from their dull mundane lives . The ads featured said creepy old dude dancing to "We Like To Party" by the Vengaboys. The identity of the person who portrayed Mr. Six was kept secret throughout the advertising campaign, and was later revealed to be Danny Teeson, best known for his work on the Bravo series "Queer Eye for the Straight Girl". The Mr. Six advertising campaign was brought to an abrupt halt due to a change in corporate management, in which the new managers of the chain wanted to better market the parks to families with younger children, and they believed that Mr. Six was not the character to do that.

    • Highlander
      The Lindsay Lohan segment is a take off on the movie and television series, Highlander.
