"Virtual Freak" pokes a little fun at an earlier episode.


Added DiffLines:

** Also done in the "Freakazoid and Friends" musical number, which parodies the theme song to ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}''. The lyrics mention, among other things, that the show is very dumb and that it isn't doing very good in the ratings.

* LoudOfWar: In one episode, Freakazoid is given the choice of being sentenced to 30 days in prison or 30 minutes of having to listen to Fan Boy talk about ''Tron.'' He chooses the former. Unfortunately, Fanboy is his cellmate.
-->'''Fanboy:''' Hey I was just talking to Harlan on the Internet, and I told him I hadn’t seen a good cyberspace scene like this since {{TRON}}. Which is ‘’not’’ the film that broke the bank at Disney in 1983, ''as some believe''. No, TRON came out in ’82, 3 years ''after'' Disney’s ''TheBlackHole'', which was movie lands equivalent to the Hindenburg! What a disaster! And the robots! They made R2-D2 look like Lawrence Olivier…

-->'''Fanboy:''' …back to 1983 at Disney. Their big film that bombed in 1983 wasn’t TRON, it was ''SomethingWickedThisWayComes'', which is actually pretty fun, but it comes across too soft. And it lost a fortune! Anyway, that brought about the arrival of Eisner and Katzenberg…

* {{Bowdlerise}}: A minor character named Mo-Ron later had his name changed to Bo-Ron, due to the network censors concerns that the use of "moron" was too offensive. It did allow the writers to make him come from Baronis in a shout out to Baroni's: The restaurant where they got the pizza for the recording sessions.

This was lampshaded in a later episode by Lord Bravery, who addressed him by both names, albeit in an indecisive manner. It did allow the writers to make him come from Baronis in a shout out to Baroni's: The restaurant where they got the pizza for the recording sessions.

** Said clone was never apprehended or anything, it was just never seen again and was presumably no longer a threat once it was proven as such.

* BringingRunningShoesToACarChase: In one episode, Freakazoid is chasing on foot after the Lobe, who's escaping in a limousine. Freakazoid manages to catch up to the limousine and get into a ramming duel with it before the writing staff bulls up beside him in another limousine and suggests that he should use [[CoolCar the Freakmobile]].
