    • The scene with Filburt's fantasy sequence in Sugar Frosterd Frights when Filburt is a brown chocolate demon on a syrup mountain is a parody of the beginning of the "Night on Bald Mountain" sequence in Walt Disney's Fantasia (1940), complete with the same music, composed by M. Mussorgsky.

    • Title Ed is Dead: A Thriller

      This episode title is a possibly reference to the Pixies song "Ed is Dead," from their 1987 release, Come on Pilgrim.

    • "Sugar Frosted Frights" resembles the Charles Dickens novel A Christmas Carol. Filburt learns to love Halloween, just as Ebeneezer Scrooge learned to love Christmas.
