Both Eclaire's and Blitzen's names mean "lightning", referring to Eclaire's powers. Eclaire is lightning in French; Blitzen is lightning in German.
We learn that Speak is actually a rodent.
Goof: In this episode, we learn that Arthur is Jewish, but in The Tick Loves Santa, Arthur got a pop-gun from Santa as a gift.
The Decency Squad are reminiscent of the old Golden Age superheroes.
Capt. Decency is only active in the flashbacks; he sleeps throughout the entire episode.
Johnny Polite resembles Batman's sidekick Robin (particularly the Silver Age comics' Robin).
The Living Doll and SufraJet are apparently married.
Johnny Polite isn't seen in the present, nor is there any mention of whatever became of him. In the Tick book "Mighty Blue Justice", there is a page honoring the superheroes' deceased sidekicks, all named Johnny, who were all seemingly killed in the line of duty. There is also a memorial to a Johnny sidekick on the door of the Sidekicks' Lounge in "The Tick VS The Tick", so perhaps Johnny Polite met with an untimely end during one of the Squad's missions.
The ant armies wear trench coats and fedora hats similar to those worn by Carmen Sandiego. Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? was also airing on Fox Kids at the time this episode premiered.
"I'll take a bite of the moon for you...": the lyrics of the song being played on the radio that Arthur is listening to in his apartment. Clearly, this is a reference to Omnipotus taking a bite out of the moon in "Alone Together".
In this episode, Arthur delivers an eduactional speech explaining all about hay fever, much in the same manner as his explanation about aspirin in "The Tick VS Dinosaur Neil."
Trivia: We find out the Human Bullet's name is "Mitch."
The inventors and scientists stolen from time are Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Edison, George Washington Carver, the nameless inventor of the wheel, Johann Gutenberg, and Leonardo da Vinci.
The woman who appears in the commercial for the Villain Awards looks suspiciously like supermodel Mindy Moleford, who ran away with the Mole King to the Mole Kingdom in season 1's "The Tick vs the Mole Men".
One of the dancers at the Villian Awards ceremony is wearing a costume of the moon with "CHA" (the first 3 letters of Chairface Chippendale's name from when he tried to carve his name on the moon in Season 1's "The Tick vs Chairface Chippendale") on it.
When we first see Omnipotous in space, he devours the planet of The Little Prince, the title character in the famous book by Antoine De Saint Exupury.
Yank (the monkey from "The Tick VS Pineapple Pokopo") is present in the control room at NASA. Apparently, he's still employed with the space program, despite having already lost his genius intelligence by the end of his first episode.
While on his date with Carmalita, Arthur references events from season 1 episodes The Tick vs. El Seed and The Tick vs. the Uncommon Cold.
The Human Ton may be a parody of the X-Men villain The Blob. His other personality, Handy the hand puppet, may be a parody of the Batman villian Scarface, a gangster dummy with a personality completely seperate from its ventriloquist.
This episode marks the last apearance of the Crusading Chameleon.
When The Tick first goes after Proto Clown he's wearing an "I love Wheat" shirt but when he first gets hit by Proto Clown the shirt is gone.
The Tick and Arthur borrow Arthur's sister Dot's car, just like in "The Tick vs. The Tick." Yet, in that episode her car is a bigger, yellower version than the small, purple car in this episode.
In the supermarket battle, The Tick and cyborg-dog Skippy are fighting for what was said to be the last microwave oven in stock, but when you look in the backround you can see that there's another microwave on the shelf.
When The Tick, Arthur, Thrakkorzogg and Tick's clone go to the roof to fight Arthur's clone does not show up with them. We never see what happened to him as only Thrakkorzogg and Tick's clone are sent to Dimension 14B.
This episode begins with a cold opening with The Tick and Arthur being grilled by an offscreen interviewer. "The Tick VS The Idea Men" begins the same way.
Present at the Comet Club are: Mighty Agrippa, Roman God of the Aqueduct, Jet Valkyrie (a woman!), Fishboy, Lost Prince of Atlantis, Bigshot and American Maid.
We learn from this episode that Bigshot has been going to Anger Management. (In "The Tick VS The Idea Men", Tick suggests that Bigshot "seek professional help.")
Present in the Sidekicks' Lounge: Arthur, a talking dog in a cape (perhaps a homage to the SuperFriends' first mascot, Wonder Dog), a disgruntled talking orangutan, and another teen human sidekick (who quits after the Lounge is blown up.)
There is a memorial to a deceased sidekick on the wall of the Sidekicks' Lounge. (Apparently, in the City sidekicks are basically just human shields.)
