  • Seth Green and his crew are on the cutting edge of Comedy,

    And popular culture. When i first saw the part of this episode where Donkey Kong is invaded by a whole crew of Master Chiefs from HALO. I went out of my mind with laughter. These guys are making this show just for me. I can not wait for the next season.

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

    • For some reason, the Netflix version of this episode does not show the Stix Rabbit Drug Lord sketch, but it shows the season 2 sketch of An Unfortunate Incident at the Tatooine Cantina in its place.

    • The soldiers in the donkey kong sketch are Halo 2 series 1 action figures.

    • In the "First Date" sketch, the female Alien wears nothing but a bow until the hot tub scene, where she wears a bikini. Then, druing the next scene, she's just wearing the bow again. Was she nude in every scene but the hot tub, or is there nothing else that she wears?

    • In the Alien/Predator "First Date" sketch, during the car scene, the background that the car is driving through is real life footage that the creators did while in their own car.

    • What many people can't see in the Donkey Kong sketch is how the soldiers put away Mario. It's hard to notice, but the writers admit (on DVD commentary) that the soldiers are snapping Mario's neck, putting an end to the plumber's life.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • (The Stix Rabbit and the Leprechaun are sitting naked in the spa.)
      Leprechaun: I tell ya, the bleeding boys were following me around, and one little brasser says, "We're after your charms." And so I says, "Forget about me blue diamonds, and worry about me blue balls, ya whore!" Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!
      Stix Rabbit: Ha, ha, ha. Oh, yeah. I never have any idea what you're saying.
      (Stix Rabbit's assistant steps into the scene.)
      Assistant: (Whispering in Rabbit's ear) Bad news, boss: the Rice Boys are talking to the cops.
      Stix Rabbit: (standing up with his censored pelvis out) Bastards are always talking!

      (Scene cuts to the Rice Boys sitting down and talking to the police officer in a dark room.)
      Rice Boy #1: Okay, okay, I'll crack!
      Rice Boy #3: I'll crinkle!
      Rice Boy #2: I'll plop!
      Rice Boy #1: The Stix Rabbit made us sell the stuff!
      Officer: Uh...we only brought you in 'cuz someone turned in your wallet.
      ( Officer holds up wallet. All the Rice Boys look nervous.)
      Rice Boy #2: Heh...Must-must've lost it.

    • Stix the Rabbit: Ooh! Stix cereal! I gotta have some!
      Boy & Girl: Stupid bunny, Stix are intended for children!
      Stix the Rabbit: Just give me a little!
      Girl: He touched me innappropriately!

    • Reporter #1: Mayor McCheese! Mayor McCheese! How do your views differ from Governor Schwarzenegger given that he's a republican, and you have a cheeseburger for a head?
      Mayor McCheese: It's a birth defect! Oh, I've dealt with prejudice all my life...
      Reporter #2: Mr. Mayor! Mr. Mayor! There have been allegations that you've taken women to motel rooms and paid them to go to the bathroom on your chest.
      (Mayor McCheese becomes speechless and Hamburglar appears.)
      Hamburglar: Uh, uh... Robble, robble, robble, robble! (runs away with Mayor McCheese)

  • NOTES (5)

  • ALLUSIONS (8)

    • The quick sketch of the guy standing next to a motorcycle and yelling "Tetsuo!" is an allusion to the 1988 Anime film Akira. At the end of the film, Keneda, a young biker, frequently yells for the other protagonist, Tetsuo.

    • the Leprechaun in the Stix the Rabbit segment is a reference to Lucky, from Lucky Charms.

    • Rice Boys, is an allusion to Rice Krispie's characters Snap, Crackle, & Pop.

    • Frogger
      The channel flip featuring an overhead view of frogs crossing a traffic-heavy street is a parody of the 1981 Konami arcade game, Frogger. The classic game has players control a frog through traffic and river hazards to get to his home.

      The flip takes a "realistic" approach to the game, because one truck tries to stop for the frog, causing a big car wreck along the street.

    • Carousel of Tomorrow
      The title of the sketch, Carousel of Tomorrow, is based on the Disney World attraction, Carousel of Progress.

      Located in Tomorrowland, the attraction is the longest running stage show in the history of theater in the United States. Like the sketch, the show features the joys of living through electricity and other technological advantages, as well as the humor involved in dealing with the various technological advances.

    • Wimpy's Wonderful Life
      The sketch featuring Wimpy, the moustached big man in a derby hat, about to commit suicide when he is suddenly stopped by an angel is a parody on two accounts.

      The scene is a parody of the classic movie It's a Wonderful Life, where Jimmy Stewart's character is about to commit suicide the same way, but he then is stopped by an angel and shown what life for his loved ones would have been like had he not bee born at all.

      Wimpy is a character from the comic strip turned into a cartoon series, Popeye. Wimpy is basically a "moocher," meaning he bums off of others to get by in life. He is most rememorable for his line, "I'll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today!"

    • Stix the Rabbit
      The last sketch at the end features a white rabbit named "Stix." This is an obvious parody of Trix the Rabbit, the cartoon character from the Trix commercials. The parody is that if this happened in real life, the child would sue the rabbit for sexual harrassment, leading the rabbit to a life of crime.

    • Video Games
      In the sketch where three soldiers use guns and gadgets to climb to the top of the screen to kill a monkey, it is a parody of two video games.
      The first, most noticeable game being parodies is Donkey Kong, the first game released by Nintendo in arcades in 1980.
      The second game that's used here is Bungie's Halo, which originally released on the Microsoft Xbox in 2001. The three soldiers are modeled after the game's main character, "Master Chief."
