Mr. Denzel Crocker
Chester (2003 -)
Cosmo/Mr. Turner/Jorgen von Strangle
The Rat in Spats
Mr. Crocker / Rat
1. For a mysterious legal reason with not being sued by Disney, Timmy interrupted Wanda when Wanda was about to say "Mouseketeers"
2. Uranus into "urnine" was interrupted by Wanda saying "Oh my gosh!"
Reply: You're wrong about the second thing, I think it was Your-anus, meaning your butt.
In Mary Shelleys Frankenstein, Frankenstein doesn't have a castle (merely an attic room), Frankenstein never says the words "Its alive!", and the villagers never try to attack the creation.
This is one of three episodes where Timmy gets a grade of 'A' for a school assignment.
Wanda: Oh Hilary, how could you put up with him?
While unlikely, this may be a reference to Bill and Hilary Clinton and the notorious Monica Lewinsky scandal that shook the presidency.
When Wanda almost says 'They've turned The 3 Musketeers into the The 3 Mouseketeers', Timmy stops her. This is because of them not being able to get the legal rights for The Mouseketeer's name from Disney.
How did Sanjay do his 500-page book report when he has been chasing Elmer with the rest of the angry mob all summer long?
(reply: He could've taken a break to do it, and went back to chasing Elmer)
Sanjay was in the angry mob about against books, but he is a member in the school library club.
This is the second time they show Timmy on summer vacation in the series, yet he returns to 5th grade every time, along with the rest of the kids.
Re: With Crocker like teacher is possible.
Timmy: Can we get out of here? I'm learning again.
Rat: (About Tom frowning) Hey little man, in this fun little town, there's only one rule, you cannot ever frown.
Tom: I'm taking no orders from rats in clown shoes.
Rat: (Furiously) WHAT DID YOU SAY ABOUT MY SHOES. PUNK?
(His shoe becomes gigantic, and he flattens Tom)
Cosmo: I'm painting this picket fence for good pal Tom.
Timmy: Don't make fun of Rat's shoes.
Tom: (To the Mouse from "Rats from Spats") You ain't the boss of me! And I don't take orders from a rat in clown shoes! (Muffled laugh)
Mouse: (To Tom Sawyer inside "Rats of Spats") What did you say about my shoes punk!?
Timmy: (Inside "Frankenstein") It's the Frankenstein monster... truck?!
Scientist: It's alive! It's alive! And it gets 3 miles to the gallon!
Timmy: (Returning from the End of the Summer Carnival) Cosmo! I bought you a snow cone! But it sort of melted... in my mouth... sort of.
Timmy: (To Tom Sawyer) My name is Timmy Turner and I just wished you out of your book.
Wanda: But Timmy, reading is...
Cosmo: For suckers without Fairy Godparents!
Timmy: (Referring to the book "Astrophysics for Morons") Also boring! Who cares about the laws of physics?
Cosmo: Uhh... the physics police?
Timmy: (Standing infront of the library with Chester and A.J.) I can't believe I blew it off for the last minute!
Cosmo: What do you wanna do Timmy? Wish for snow cones? Wish for World Peace? Wish for snow cones?
Timmy: A 500 page book report?
Elmer: That sounds like fun! (everyone gives him a mean look)
Tom: As they say in Missouri, I ain't goin back to Missouri.
(As Timmy, Cosmo and Wanda are going into the next book to find Tom Sawyer)
Timmy: Wait a minute. He went into "Moby Dick", then "Frankenstein", then "Tarzan"-
Cosmo: Lord of the Drapes!
Wanda: He's going down the books I poofed up for you!
Timmy: And the last book is..."Astrophysics for Morons"! Guys, we gotta stop him!
Cosmo: What for? So, he gets into a physics book. What's the worse that could happen?
Timmy: Cosmo, don't you get it? He could turn gravity into gravy! He could turn the planets in plants!
Wanda: He could turn Uranus into... oh my gosh!
Cosmo: What? I don't get it. What's the threat?
Jason and Pussycats:
North, south, east, west
We've got tattoos on our chest!
Except for Larry!
Wanda: Oh Hillary, how could put up with him?!
Elmer: Do you ever stop to go to the bathroom?!

The story of this episode is somewhat similar to The real life/animated movie The Pagemaster were a boy magically travels into the books.
Moby Duck: Captain Ahab chasing after a big rubber yellow duck
The scene is similar to the Codename: Kids Next Door episode D.U.C.K.Y. where a captain and his crew chase after a big rubber yellow duck.
When Timmy imagines the "planets" being turned into "plants" by the brought-to-life "Tom Sawyer", one of the plant-planets resembles the Starship Enterprise from Star Trek (The Original Series).
When Wanda explain who is Sherlock Holmes, Cosmo transform his head in Dick Tracy's head. Dick Tracy was a popular detective of comic strips. In the 90's he had a movie.
Clothes of Scientist:
If you look closely on the clothes of the scientist in the "Frankenstein" book, you will notice that he is wearing purple gloves and a white lab coat similar to the attire Dexter in Dexter's Laboratory is wearing.
This episode is identical to a large portion of the Futurama episode 'The Day The Earth Stood Stupid'.
Book: Astrophysics for Morons
The "For Morons" books is a parody of the "For Dummies" books.
Book: Jason and the Pussycats
The title and the song they sing is a parody of the Hanna-Barbera cartoon, Josie and the Pussycats, which was also made into a 2001 movie starring Rosario Dawson, Tara Reid and Rachael Leigh Cook as the title roles.
Book: Rats in Spats
Parody of the book and movie The Cat in the Hat.
