Staying with this version, Creator/DoveCameron was a fan of the 2007 musical film version and had a poster of it in her bedroom.

* AllStarCast: Played with. The 2007 movie had several all star members (Creator/JohnTravolta, Creator/ChristopherWalken, Music/QueenLatifah, and Creator/ZacEfron to name a few), but these were mostly secondary roles, whereas the main role went to entirely new actress Nikki Blonsky (the 2007 version was her debut as a professional actress). The 2016 TV musical however, is a straight example (Complete with [[Film/{{Descendants}} Dove Cameron and Kristin Chenoweth]] together again for the latter), and like in the 2007 movie, the main role went to newcomer Maddie Baillio, who won the part from one thousand other people who auditioned for the role.

** "I Can't Wait", sung by Nikki Blonsky in the 2007 movie, also counts, but the said song can be heard as a deleted song/scene in the two-disc soundtrack and two-disc DVD/Blu-Ray release.
** The 2016 telecast cut "The Big Dollhouse".

** The 2016 telecast cut "The Big Dollhouse". To be fair, only Tracy was the one arrested there.

** In the 2016 live broadcast, Penny being carried out in the finale might be a reference to the rumor that ArianaGrande demands she be carried everywhere.
