  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Plot
      Jimmy and his friends are forced to work on a chain gang, overseen by Stormshuckle, who wears sunglasses. This may be a reference to the film Cool Hand Luke, where the title character is arrested and forced to work on a chain gang, overseen by Boss Godfrey, a man who wears sunglasses and never says a word the whole movie. Both Luke and Jimmy try to escape the gang.

    • Title screen music: Who Frammed Jimmy

      The music on the title screen on this episode is similar to the TV show Cops. The theme song is "Bad Boys".

      This character is a spoof of a sheriff of the movie Smokey and the Bandit his name was Bueford T. Justice.

    • Scene: Bear Chase

      While a bear chases Jimmy, Carl and Sheen, there are some spoofs to the show The Benny Hill Show, like the running gags or Carl patting a bald in the head.

    • Scene: Trash Picking

      This scene is similar to the movie Cool Hand Luke, especially when Jimmy, Carl, and Sheen refer to the warden as "boss" whenever they ask to do something.

    • Hugh and Flippy: Characters

      Hugh and Flippy kinda resembles the Batman villains Ventriloquist and Scarface. Flippy talks loudly like Scarface and Hugh gust keeps quiet like Ventriloquist
