    • Looney Tunes: Many of the campers have traits that correlate to classic Looney Tunes characters, such as Elmer Fudd, Droopy the Dog, Porky Pig, Dumb-Dumb Lion, and Beaky Buzzard. Also, Nathan and Mimsy took on the roles of Rocky and Mugsy. Finally, Nathan's plan to have Jimmy set off a pound of C4 wired to his ukulele by playing the correct note during his solo, mirrors a scene in the Bugs Bunny episode Ballot Box Bunny in which Yosemite Sam sets up a piano so that it would explode once Bugs presses a specific key. Jimmy's ukulele also uses the same tune from that episode and Nathan meets the same fate as Sam when he tries to correctly play the solo for Jimmy, who kept messing it up.
