The Fatman cartoon in this episode is called "Legume of Doom."
Blind Lemon Yankovic, who Al briefly mentions, appeared in the Weird Al Disney special, There's No Going Home. Blind Lemon was played by real jazz singer, Bill Henderson.
Show Announcer: Is Al trying to set a world record for idiotic ideas? Will he learn it's important to just do your best?
Fatman: Legume, I presume!
Dr. Legume: (gasps) It's no use trying to stop me, Fatman. I must see my plan carried out.
Al: What's so great about a world record anyway? It just means you're the...best in the world and no one can take that away from you, which brings up a tremendous amount of personal satisfaction and self-worth.
Zorgonaut: Citizens of Earth, we are Zorgonauts from the planet Zoro 7. We need all of the humans who are the very best at something to come and help us start a brand new advanced civilization. Everyone else, do...whatever.
