First time that Dark Helmet and President Skroob have appeared in this series as children and young teenagers.
It's learned in this episode that Dark Helmet's real name is Panakin Crybaby, and was taught to use the Schwartz by Yogurt himself.
Yogurt: Needs more underwire support than the Brooklyn Bridge.
Dark Helmet: Now I know why they call 'em "knockers".
Droid Stripper: Hi there short, dark, and helmeted.
Young President Skroob: Wow! This race sure is exciting! And I can't even see what's happening!
(Panakin's Mother is watching a mini-T.V.)
Panakin's Mother: I'm sorry, were you saying something?
The stripper that Dark Helmet met in the beginning has a similarity to the famous adult film entertainer Chelsea Charms.
Outlet Mall made a laugh during the race, similar to the famous laugh from the dog named Muttley from the classic cartoon Wacky Races.
Panakin's Mother: Would you please be quiet? I'm trying to watch Desperate Houseslaves.
Desperate Houseslaves is an obvious parody/reference to Desperate Housewives.
