Charlie Brown / Linus
In the Great Pumpkin sketch, the Satan puppet dancing with the cast of Peanuts can be seen in other episodes arm wrestling a nun, and poking people with a pitchfork among other things.
The wacky music accompanying the high-speed footage in the 'Benny Hill Funeral' segment resembles 'Yakety Sax,' the theme song for The Benny Hill Show.
The 'Sore Loser' segment uses the same set in which the 'That 00's Show' segment used in 'Gold Dust Gasoline.'
Behind Douglas in the 'It's Your Baby Segment' is a portrait hanging on the wall which is a partial screenshot from 'That '00s Show,' A previous segment which appeared in 'Gold Dust Gasoline.'
In the 'Teen Titans Meet Beavis & Butt-head' parody, three of the Teen Titans didn't even speak (Cyborg laughed and Starfire growled though).
The man in the tradition Uncle Sam costume saying "Stay in school, kids" refers to any number of anti-dropout Public Service Announcements and programs.
The signature Charlie Brown dance is shown at the end.
In the scene with the old man and the young boy playing chess, the old man flips the board over in frustration but all the pieces disappear.
While Charlie Brown is still alive, the rest of the other members of the Peanuts are in hell. Lucy and Marcie are not in that scene.
After Charlie Brown and Lucy Van Pelt mourn for the decease of Linus, the round-headed kid recollects other previous episodes about the river race at Camp Remote, visiting France to meet the bad neighbor, etc.
In case anyone really wondered, Benny Hill did not die in March, when this episode first premiered, at all. He died April 20th, 1992; they did get the year right, though. This may mean the episode was shifted around from a different, intended original air date.
In the Teen Titans parody, Starfire only appears when the monster first attacks and when Beavis and Butthead say a rude joke about her. She doesn't appear during the second battle with the monster.
Robin: Ok guys, flip the switch. Flip it now! Guys? Guys!
Butthead: Uhh, were we supposed to do something?
Beavis: Yeah, we were supposed to turn the knob or something.
Butthead: Ha ha. Knob.
Blind Girl: (to no-one) Is somebody there? I come from a village where we think it's 1896. I need medicine for my dying fiancé.
(she gets run over by a bus and a Ranger pulls up next to her)
Blind Girl: That... that was a really weak twist.
Ranger: Yeah, sorry 'bout that folks!
(cuts to Guy in Chair)
Guy in Chair: Wasn't that great? And as an added bonus, I'm just three ducks in a man suit!
Beavis and Butthead: Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na, Batman!
Random guy: (about the Sleepway Camp movie) Oh, my God! Somebody remembered this movie and wrote a comedy sketch about it!
Darth Vader: Luke... I am your father!
Luke Skywalker: Noooo! That's impossible!
Darth Vader: It's true! And Princess Leia is your sister!
Luke Skywalker: That's... improbable.
Darth Vader: And the Empire will be defeated by Ewoks!
Luke Skywalker: That's... highly unlikely...
Darth Vader: And as a kid, I built C-3PO!
Luke Skywalker: ...what?
(cuts to the two of them having a conversation over coffee & cigarettes)
Darth Vader: And the force? Well that's just tiny bacteria in your blood stream called midi-chlorians.
Luke Skywalker: Look, if you're not going to take this seriously then I'm off.
(walks off the screen)
Great Pumpkin: You should let the great pumpkin eat you.
Charlie Brown: Aaah!
Robin: (about battle armor)Beavis and Butthead, do you two have anything to contribute?
Butthead: Yeah. I have, like, a question or something. That chick has orange boobs!(referring to Starfire)
Raven: You guys need to apologize to Starfire, right now!
Butthead: That chick's just mad because, like, goth music sucks.
Charlie Brown: I'm at the end of my rope, Lucy. Everybody else is dead besides you and me. I thought being stuck as a pre-pubescent bald kid for 50 years couldn't get any worse.
Lucy: Just kick the ball, you blockhead!
Charlie Brown: But everytime I try to kick it, you pull it away from me.
Lucy: This time I won't! Come on, already!
Charlie Brown: Maybe this time she really means it. I'm going to do it. I'm going to kick the football! (Lucy pulls it up but Charlie Brown stops, smiles, and then kicks Lucy in the head) That's for years of humiliation bitch.
Charlie Brown: This is different from the time when we got lost in France, or when we almost drowned during the great river raft race. I fear just having a positive attitude with strong Christian overtones won't save us this time.
Marcie: (to Peppermint Patty) Hold me, sir. (both kissing each other)
Charlie Brown: I said strong Christian overtones!
Uncle Sam: Greetings! You know, freedom of speech is the most valuable right of the American people. And so, to honor 1st Amendment, I will now fart the national anthem. I recommend you videotape this moment and watch it again on the 4th of July!
(farts the first few notes and splat!)
Heh heh, whoops! I just crapped myself! Heh heh! Stay in school kids!
Charlie Brown: (to the Great Pumpkin): Meet the kite eating tree, you ugly son of a bitch.
(Pumpkin is eaten by kite eating tree)
Waiters and Waitresses: Serve! Serve! Serve! Serve! Serve! Serve! Serve! Serve!
Guy:(quickly when woman is about to eat a corn dog) Ooh, look, she's gonna do it!
Charlie Brown: (after kicking Lucy instead of the football) That's four years of humililation, bitch!
Beavis: If I was that beast dude, I would be a monkey and I would whip my own crap at people.
Butthead: Yeah, When he's a dog, I bet he licks his own nutsack.
Charlie Brown: Poor Linus...
Lucy: That blockhead! Everyone's a blockhead! Blockheads! Blockheads! Blockheads!
Adult: Waa wa waa wa wa wa wa wa waa...
Lucy: What did he say?
Charlie Brown: Augh! I never have any idea what any adult says! It's always that "wa wa wa" crap!

In an ironic twist of casting, Rory Thost, who plays Charlie Brown, will apparently be playing Peppermint Patty in upcoming Charlie Brown specials, such as He's A Bully, Charlie Brown.
When Charlie Brown tells Peppermint Patty and Marcie that what's happening is different than when they got lost in France or when they almost drowned during the Great River Raft Race, he is referring to two classic Peanuts movies the gang starred in, Race For Your Life, Charlie Brown (1977) in which the gang goes to summer camp and participates in a big river raft race, and Bon Voyage Charlie Brown (1980) in which the Peanuts gang goes over to France as part of a foreign exchange program.
'The Time of the Great Pumpkin' segment is a parody of the Peanuts cartoon and comic strip. The characters appearing in the segment include Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy, Schroeder, Snoopy, Woodstock, Sally, Pigpen, Peppermint Patty, Franklin and Marcie.
