** Art in this future is influenced by big-eye-kid painter Walter Keane - "Keane" is in fact the descriptive term for a brilliant work.

* ShoutOut: Aside from the general homage to silent comedies, there's a blink and you miss it moment where we see a Domesticom van driver dressed in dark blue coveralls and an unusual brimless cap, similar to the workers from {{Film/Metropolis}}.

1973 film starring WoodyAllen and Diane Keaton, wherein Woody Allen plays the role of Miles Monroe, a jazz musician who is accidentally frozen (with tinfoil for freshness) for two hundred years, waking in the year 2173. He is drafted by the scientists who wake him, as he's the only man in the world who hasn't been scanned and cataloged by the globe-spanning dictatorship of "The Leader".

* FutureImperfect: The scientists knowledge of the past is limited and comes from old tapes of Howard Cosell. They seek to learn more by asking a Woody Allen character which one supposes is an improvement.

* {{Homage}}: Woody Allen wanted to do a Creator/CharlieChaplin-styled movie. ''Sleeper'' was to be a silent film; instead, the film has a lot of slapstick comedy with no dialog. Allen also did something only Chaplin did: write, direct, star, produce, ''and'' write and perform the music in the soundtrack.
