    I started watching this show a few days ago, but I am starting to see that the first time viewers may be enthralled by it, but it is not that good when you really sit back and watch it. The show is very creative, it is groundbreaking and unique, but it certainly is not one of the better comedies out there. It is, after all, grown men playing with dolls and action figures, and most of the segments here tonight were not even that funny. That Olsen Twins bit really had me embarrassed to be watching the show at the time.moreless

    • Coca-Cola

      The scene in which a polar bear is seen drinking from a soft drink bottle and then throwing up is a reference to the famous Coca-Cola polar bear commercials.

    • The Matrix

      When the Grandma is seen fighting within the retirement home, the move where she hangs on to the stick whilst kicking everybody in the circle is a reference to a move Keanu Reeves did in the motion picture, The Matrix Reloaded.

    • Ferris Bueller's Day Off
      The two valets running KITT in reverse to take off the miles from his odometer, followed by KITT going out the back door of the garage down a cliff is a parody of Ferris Bueller's Day Off. The two valets that take the car on a road trip also parody the movie's valets that take the car, which belonged to Alan Ruck's father, on a road trip.

      Ferris Bueller's Day Off is the ultimate teen movie starring Matthew Broderick as a high school wise guy determined to have a day off from school, despite what the principal thinks.
