* HeyItsThatGuy: Old Man Wrenchmuller is played by veteran character actor Royal Dano, perhaps most famous for playing Elijah the Prophet in the 1950s adaptation of ''Film/MobyDick'', and Grandpa Jesse in ''Film/HouseIITheSecondStory''.

* CoolShades: Blaznee rocks them 95% of the time. Dr. Ziplock is just [[MakingASpectacleOfYourself making a spectacle of himself]].



* EmergencyCargoDump: done in the climax with an ExcrementStatement.



* ForHalloweenIAmGoingAsMyself

to:

* ForHalloweenIAmGoingAsMyselfFantasticFruitsAndVegetables: Wrenchmuller's farm is full of giant crops after the EmergencyCargoDump ExcrementStatement.
* ForHalloweenIAmGoingAsMyself: Inadvertently, the Martians don't realize at first that they've been misidentified as trick-or-treaters.



* HerrDoktor: Doctor Ziplock
* HumongousMecha: The Farmzoid

* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: The opening credits theme is a (pretty subpar) riff on ''[[Music/GustavHolst Mars: The Bringer of War]]''. Which is strange, as ''The Planets'' are public domain.

* [[ABoyAndHisX A Girl and Her Robot]]: Kathy is very quick to wrest possession of the Help-in-a-Can droid from Brian. It decides to stick around for a while.

* LargeHam: Pretty much anyone on the Martians' side of the issue. Lieutenant Giggywig is constantly spouting typical invader lines and, at one point, imitates [[{{Patton}} General Patton]]. Captain Bipto is just a few shades under him. [[{{Expy}} Blaznee]] might as well ''be'' JackNicholson. Doctor Ziplock is a consistent critic on how [[JugglingLoadedGuns his fellows handle weapons]], and his target is usually [[StuffBlowingUp Pez]]. After Bipto takes control of him, Vern's personality takes on a combination of [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Lieutenant Commander Data]] and a game show host. And the Enforcer drone seems to channel [[StarWars Darth Vader]] in both appearance ''and'' [[YouHaveFailedMe attitude]].
