  • William Shatner's wig + Hillary Duff's version of "The Diary of Anne Frank" + a Michael Moore retrospective = Comedy Gold! :D

    10
    There are two kind of people in the world of comedy: those who write comedy, and those who perform it. Fortunately, Seth Green seems to be a special kind of person that can do both. He can perform comedy as Stewie Griffin in "Family Guy" and he can write comedy for the hit T.V. show of "Robot Chicken." Who would've guessed a hair-piece from the aging former Captain Kirk could go on so many adventures? Who would've figured out that adults who cross-dress are more likely to have children who cross-dress? Who would've thought that Arnold the 'Governator' was generally worried about tumors? Then Hillary Duff tries to cash in with her (&@&&^--oops--I mean 'sappy' version of the "Diary of Anne Frank." The one thing everyone can agree on the girl better known as Lizzie McGuire is her true statement of "Nazi's suck!" And finally, Michael Moore makes us realize that those old toys from the 1980's need love just like the rest of us do! It is for this reason that I am proud to add this show to my favorites! :idea: Enough said, true believers! ;)moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • "Where are They Now?" was a sketch that the Robot Chicken writers originally wrote for Sony's "Sweet J Presents..."

      While most of the sketch in this episode is mostly rehashed from the Sony show, there is a scene that was deleted for time purposes on the Robot Chicken version that was part of the original version, including Funshine from the Care Bears. The scene is included among the deleted scenes on the Seson One DVD of Robot Chicken.

    • Panthro's cell number is "1138." This is a nod to George Lucas, whose first film was THX 1138.

    • In "the Diary of Anne Frank" parody, when Anne, "Hilary Duff" is writing in her diary, she writes "Dear Diary", but in Anne's real diary she always wrote "Dear Kitty".

  • QUOTES (10)

  • NOTES (6)

  • ALLUSIONS (6)

    • Title Pun: Boy meets World.

    • Shazam!
      The channel flip where a boy says "Shazam!" and is struck by lightning is a parody of DC's hero, Captain Marvel. The flip shows what would "realistically" happen to a kid hit by a lightning bolt. In the comics, Billy Batson says "Shazam!" to call on the power of the wizard Shazam, who turns Batson into Captain Marvel via a lighting bolt.

    • Doctor: *to Arnold Schwarzenegger* No, it's not a tumor. It's not a tumor at all.

      This is a reference to that one Arnold Schwarzenegger movie "Kindergarten Cop". Arnold, who plays as a cop teaching at kindergarten, says he has a headache. The kids say it could be a tumor. And he shouts to the kids "IT'S NOT A TUMOR!"

    • Sam: I helped the boy with his puppy! *warp*...oh boy
      and
      Al: Work the shaft Sam
      The above quote is a spoof of the Quantum Leap plot.

    • Unnamed kid: "You, all right?! I learned it by watching you!"
      The travestite kid's quote to his father is a reference from one of the many commercials that ran over the years urging kids not to use drugs. In one, a father finds his kid's stash and asks where he learned how to do drugs. Towit, the kid replies he learned by watching his own father. IRONIC! The tagline then ends, "Parents who use drugs, have kids who use drugs." In this case, of course, it means that parents who cross dress, have kids who cross dress

    • Uncle Chu: China is in here, Mr. Burton!
      One of the quick vox pops used in this episode is an animated version of a sequence from the movie Big Trouble In Little China. It is between Kurt Russell's Jack Burton and Uncle Chu, played by Chao Li Chi.
