** The Fooglies' song (''"Floop is a madman, help us, save us"'') which can only be heard when played backwards, is probably a reference to Music/TheBeatles "Paul Is Dead" rumors, one of which includes a song that, when played backwards, sounds like it says "Paul is a dead man, miss him, miss him".
** Antonio Banderas fixing Juni's hair at the beginning of the second movie is probably a shout-out to him doing the same exact thing to his son in the film Four Rooms. Probably because that section of the film was directed by Robert Rodriguez as well.
** In 3, after Juni asks why ever game has lava in it. Francis corrects him, telling him that "there's no lava in VideoGame/{{Halo}} and in VideoGame/{{Metroid}} it's molten magma."

* {{Writers Cannot do Math}}: In the third movie, the accident which [[spoiler:caused Grandpa's paralysis]] is said to have happened 30 years ago. [[spoiler:When talking to the Toy Maker, Grandpa says that his condition made him miss his daughter's birth.]] Even assuming Ingrid had her first child at 18, that places Carmen at 12 far younger than she actually is.
