    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Kid Friendly: Episode
        "The Legend of Kid Friendly" is an explicit parody of Sergio Leone's Spaghetti Westerns, with some very general (and some very specific) references to Leone's films. Some of the more explicit ones include:
        - The creaking windmill throughout the episode is taken directly from the opening scene of Once Upon A Time In The West.
        - A variation of "Farewell To Cheyenne", from the OUATITW soundtrack, plays throughout the episode.
        - Kid Friendly refers to Norbert at one point as "Blondie", the nickname for Clint Eastwood's character in The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly.
        - The exaggerated gunshot noises used throughout all of Leone's films are used frequently in the episode.
        - A song similar to the Overture from "A Fistful of Dollars" plays at several points.
        - The "three-way" showdown at the end recalls the climaxes of both For A Few Dollars More and The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly.
        - The trademark Sergio Leone closeups are used throughout the episode.
        - At one point, Norb says to Dag "Yes way, Dag 'em high...", a reference to Hang 'Em High (1968).

        Along with the general Western plotline, these are just some of the more specific references.

      • Kid Friendly: Kid Friendly Robot
        Kid Friendly's true form is similar to that of The Terminator. Everything from the infired vision and red eye (similar to T-800) to how he melds himself back together (just like T-1000) is taken mostly from Terminator II: Judgement Day.
