*** The [=IntSec=] Central Operator is very unhelpful and says things like "One ringy-dingy", a reference to Creator/LilyTomlin's character Ernestine on ''LaughIn''.

** "Anagathics" as a drug providing longer lifespans and "battle dress" as a form of powered armor are both from Creator/JamesBlish's ''Literature/CitiesInFlight'' novels.

* ''Pyramid'' #101, focusing on comedy in ''GURPS'':
** The article "Animating Your Life", describing living cartoon characters for an otherwise "realistic" setting, is inspired by many {{Toontown}} and AlternateTooniverse works. The detail that "Animates" are vulnerable to a certain chemical compound including paint thinner and acetone, is clearly the Dip from ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit?'' Similarly, the "Comedic" limitation on many Animate advantages is essentially "Not at ''any'' time - only when it's funny!"
** The adventure "Terry Toucan and the Puzzle Pals in: The House of 10,000 Sock Monkeys" is a parody of ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' and other Hanna-Barbera cartoons where "a wholesome group of kids and their semi-intelligible animal companion solved mysteries through curiosity, grit, and dumb luck". Since [[spoiler: the monsters are unexpectedly real, there's a ruined Spanish mission involved, and the Puzzle Pals' avian sidekick is smarter than they think and hates them, it's more than a little reminiscent of ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'', with Terry Toucan as Professor Pericles]]. The inhabitants of Solivar include Mayor Fred Norbert (Norbert Rogers being Shaggy's real name) and Dr Kasem (Creator/CaseyKasem being the original voice of Shaggy).
