He is also seen in the in window of the shop in the very first shot.

Craig's wishing he has Tourettes throughout the episode could be a reference to the many fans who thought that he had the disease
This episode is the first time we get to see the bathrooms of Whistlin' Willy's.
In the toy store there are many background toys that reference things like: World of Warcraft, Diablo, Star Trek, and Star Wars.
Cartman is to appear on "Dateline NBC" (as the tv announces); however, later in the episode, at the beginning of the Dateline show, there is an HBC turtle logo in the bottom left corner.
Contrary to popular belief, Craig apparently DOES NOT have Tourette Syndrome (he's always flipping people off). He said he wished he could have Tourettes so he could get away with saying bad words.
Cartman: ... ô I've got a golden ticket.. I've got a golden twinkle in my eye.. ô Ha ha haha!
Cashier: Hey, don't you wanna buy that toy?
Cartman: I don't need the toy! I've found something better! ô Cuz I've got a golden ticket! I've got a golden chance to make my way! ô
(runs off dancing)
Cartman: Hey Wendy. DUMB BITCH! Oh sorry.
Cartman: Excuse me, everyone. I guess you have all noticed my awkward ticks. ASSHOLE! PUSSY ASSHOLE! Ahhh. I just want you to know that I can't control it.
Principal Victoria: It's okay, Eric. We all understand, and we think you're very brave.
Kyle: He's faking!! (Pointing at Cartman)
Man: Poor kid
Cartman: (Turning around to see everyone) All right!! Hold on just a second here, are you telling me that if you have this Tourette Syndrome you can say what ever you want all the time and never get in trouble?
Cashier: It's a neurological disorder, he can't help it
Thomas: ASSHOLE, ASSHOLE! (he covers his mouth)
Cartman: Wait, wait, wait, wow, wow, wow, you're telling me there is an illness that makes you blow out obscenities?
Cartman: (Pointing to the Ginger Kid) GINGER RETARD, ASSLICKER DICKFACE!!
Kyle: Dude, you better watch it, the principal's right over there.
Cartman: Good Morning, Principal Victoria. SHITBALLS!!
Principal Victoria: Good Morning Eric.
Kyle: Did Cartman just say shitballs to the principal?
Butters: You didn't hear? Well, Cartman has some mental disease called Tourette Syndrome or something.
Craig: He is the luckiest kid in the world. if I could say shitballs to the principal I'd be so happy!!
Sexual Predator 1: Aw, I knew it. (shoots himself in the head)

Craig: If I could say "ass pussy" to the counselor, I would be SO happy.
Chris Hansen: It'd be a shame if we tracked you down and you (makes quotes with fingers) "shot yourself."
Cartman: Thank you everybody. SUCK MY BALLS!
Cartman: I'm going to blast the Jews Kyle.
Cartman: (To kid with Tourette's) Isn't having Tourette's awesome?
Mrs. Garrison: OK now what do we get when we add a negitive number?
Cartman: Dick Tits!
Stan and Kenny have only non-speaking cameos in this episode.
This is the Third episode to be aired uncensored(the exception being the F word). The first was "It Hits the Fan". The second was "With Apoligizes to Jesse Jackson".
Le Petite Mort:
The title: "Le petit Tourette" might also reference the French nickname for an orgasm: "La petite mort" (the little death). It would mean that this discovery is, in a way, highly exciting to Eric. Which there is obviously no doubt about.
When Cartman is waiting backstage to go on Dateline, the poster behind him resembles the NBC peacock (with rainbow feathers), except the animal is actually a turtle with a rainbow shell.
To Catch a Predator:
Louis Conradt, Jr commited suicide after being caught by the show To Catch a Predator. Much like the men in this episode did.
Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory:
Cartman's "I've got a Golden Ticket" song at the beginning and end of the episode is a parody of a song in Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory(1971).
When Kyle is forced to apologize to Cartman. Cartman cocks his head and blinks his eyes just like Bugs Bunny used to do.
Title: Le Petit Prince: The title is probably a reference to Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's novel, Le Petit Prince.
