    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Stanley: How does horsepower work?
        Dennis: Well, Stanley, I know a great big book that's got everything inside it and I'm sure this book can tell you all about horsepower.
        Stanley: Oh, you mean the --
        Dennis: Shh, don't! (The scene cuts to Harry and Elsie, who are lying on the floor, apparently fast asleep. Harry's tongue is lolling out.)
        Stanley: (whispers) You mean The Great Big Book of Everything?
        Harry and Elsie: (singing) It's The Great Big Book of Everything with everything inside / See the world around us / This book's the perfect guide!
        Dennis: I wish the two of you would stop that horsing around.
        Harry and Elsie: (singing) Learn about a horse / In The Great Big Book, of course, course!
        Stanley: "Horse" starts with "H." A B C D E F G H! (opening musical cue of Theme of Green Acresplays)

        As Harry and Elsie sing about looking up horses in The Great Big Book, they reference the lyrics to the opening theme of Mister Ed, which declared "A horse is a horse, of course, of course!" Just a bit later on, the very opening of the theme to Green Acres can be heard, and is reprised later in the story. In another classic television nod, when Stanley is spotted by the police woman (voice of Nicole Sullivan), the very opening of the theme to Dragnet is played.
