  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Swedish Chef
      The sketch featuring the funny-talking chef is an allusion to the Swedish Chef, a character from the Muppets show. The sketch plays on the way the character speaks.

    • The Ten Commandments
      The third "Time Machines" sketch alludes to Moses' revelation of the ten commandments for God's followers to live by in order to achieve salvation, according to the book of Exodus.

    • Evil Knievel
      The sketch featuring Evil Knievel attempting a jump in his wheelchair is an allusion to Evil's career as an American stuntsman. He is best known for his high-altitude, long distance jumps that usually resulted in injuries.

    • Clifford the Big Red Dog
      The sketch featuring the oversized red dog is an allusion to the children's book series Clifford the Big Red Dog. The sketch takes a realistic look at the situation of owning a real dog that is so big.

    • Paul Revere's Ride
      The second "Tine Machine" sketch featured the American legend of Paul Revere's Ride.

      Paul Revere was one of three men set to warn the town of Concord that the British were preparing to attack the next day. Paul Revere never actually made it to Concord in time, as he was kept for questioning by British soldiers. Samuel Prescott would be the one to reach Concord that night. The sketch might actually be referring to William Dawes, the third rider, who escaped from the British soldiers like Prescott. Unlike Prescott, Dawes would get lost on the unfamiliar road.

    • Lyon-O
      Lyon-O is the lead character from the classic Thundercats cartoon.

    • J.K. Rowling is the author of the Harry Potter book series.
