* {{Shout Out}}s:
** Some episode titles, such as "[[Series/TheTomorrowPeople The Tomorrow Boys]]".
** [[WesternAnimation/ActionLeagueNow Meltyface]], [[WesternAnimation/KaBlam anyone?]]
** "[[Film/BlazingSaddles Uh, Libby, I don't think they need no stinkin' badges.]]"
** [[Series/DoctorWho Jimmy's Blue Time Traveling Telephone Booth,]] anyone?
** Cindy's entire character could be a shout out to June from ''WesternAnimation/KaBlam'' Let's see, bossy 10-11 year old girl with a ponytail, crush on the main boy... Or [[WesternAnimation/HeyArnold Helga]].
** "The N Men", particularly Retroville's reaction, is similar to the Franchise/XMen. Not just that, but Cindy, Sheen, Libby and Carl's powers are similar to ComicBook/{{Supergirl}}, ComicBook/TheFlash, [[Franchise/FantasticFour The Invisible Woman]] and [[Franchise/XMen Banshee]], well if Banshee was [[{{Gasshole}} burping]] instead of screaming. Carl's costume is also a shout out to ComicBook/PlasticMan. Jimmy was well, orange...[[spoiler: right until he turned into ComicBook/TheHulk with a skin design similar to [[Franchise/FantasticFour The Thing]]]]. And, think of Sheen's name idea. The [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Fantastic]] [[ComicBook/JusticeLeague League of Justice Bringing]] [[ComicBook/TheAvengers Avenging]] Men (and two girls!)
*** Jimmy/Hulk's fight against the Army tanks plays out almost identical to [[{{Film/Hulk}} the 2003 ''Hulk'' movie]].
** Jimmy in ''Hall Monster'' is like a condensed version of ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour''
** Sheen's full name seems to be a ShoutOut to actors (and brothers) Creator/CharlieSheen and Emilio Estevez.
--->Sheen: (As he and his friends ride down a ''T. rex'''s tail) [[WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones Yabba Dabba Dooooo~!]]
** One ride seen at Retroville in the movie has the name "[[Music/MeatLoaf Bat Out of]] [[GoshDangItToHeck Heck]]".
** Mr. Neutron's full name is [[Series/LeaveItToBeaver Hubert Beaumont]] Neutron.
** "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Sheen" has a definite air of ''Film/KungPowEnterTheFist''.
** In the HalloweenEpisode, Jimmy builds a machine that turns people into monsters. One of the monsters pictured is Music/MichaelJackson (specifically, werewolf Jackson from the ''Thriller'' video).
*** In addition, when naming off monsters that Carl could turn into, Jimmy mentions Frankenstein. Sheen pipes in with a [[Film/YoungFrankenstein "FRAHNK-en-steen".]]
*** Cindy dressed up as [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Muffy the Vampire Annihilator]] for Halloween.
*** When Carl and Sheen guess what Jimmy will dress up as, Carl suggests "[[Creator/StephenHawking that smart guy with the keyboard who talks with a computer voice]]".
** Leppy the ''Leptictidium'' shares a color scheme with the ''Leptictidium'' from ''Series/WalkingWithBeasts''. Incidentally, this program's first scene also showed it [[AnachronismStew erroneously living in the Cretaceous]].
** One of Hugh's friends is named VideoGame/MaxPayne.
** Upon gaining superpowers, the Wheezer family replicate the canyon-jumping sequence seen in ''{{Film/Hulk}}''. Apparently, [[CriticalDissonance some people did enjoy this movie after all]].
** The episode where they go inside the UltraLord Videogame, has a interesting shout-out to "The Wizard and the Princess" [[note]] a largely forgotten Sierra Adventure game, which is the spiritual prequel to KingsQuestV, and is even considered by many as "Kings Quest Zero" [[/note]] As the game had a infuriating puzzle, in which you had to traverse a desert find a rock, but it has to be a certain screen, or else a snake underneath would kill you.
** The TV Show "Intergalactic Showdown" in "Win Lose or Kaboom!" shares many similarities to game shows such as ''Series/FearFactor'', ''Survivor'', and ''Series/WhoWantsToBeAMillionaire". Also many of the alien TV shows Hugh watches are parodies, such as [[Series/BeverlyHills90210 Andromeda 90210]].
** In one episode, Jimmy had a robot duplicate of himself, which broke down causing its face to droop and sag like David in ''Film/AIArtificialIntelligence''.
** Dr. Moist's algaemen are named "Nipsey" and "Russell", after the famous comedian and frequent ''Series/{{Pyramid}}'' guest.
** In "The Incredible Shrinking Town," Jimmy recalls events of the week where his size was insulted. The montage is scored by a sound-alike of Randy Newman's "Short People."
** In "LEague of Villains", the leitmotiff of the titular organization bears an uncanny resemblance to John Williams's "Imperial March".

** Same goes for Cindy, Libby and Brittany.



* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: Though none of them say directly, the Neutrons and Wheezers are angry at Sheen for this at the end of "The Feud" since he never told Hugh [[spoiler: that Sam at The Candy Bar borrowed Hugh's Lawn Lopper]] prior to the titular feud.

** Jimmy too, in a small way. His brains, brilliance and him constantly putting the town (and sometimes, the world) make him very unpopular with the kids.

** Jimmy too, in a small way. as well. His brains, brilliance and him constantly putting the town (and sometimes, the world) make him very unpopular with the kids.other kids. However, it is shown that while the others don't like him, they truly do care for him.
** Cindy. Mainly because she's a bitch towards Jimmy and his friends. Libby and Brittany are the only members of the gang who truly like her.

** Averted - Retroville is in Texas.
** This is also played with in one of the episodes where Jimmy states that his script for a movie has one of the locations in 'a fictional city in Texas'. Although, in the first episode Cindy mentions that Jimmy's head is the size of Texas, to which Carl, upset, replies that his uncle is from Texas, and not that they live in Texas.
** The company who does the animation on the series is itself based in Dallas.

Texas. This is also played with in one of the episodes where Jimmy states that his script for a movie has one of the locations in 'a fictional city in Texas'. The theory is reinforced by the fact that the company responsible for the show's animation itself is based in Dallas and the ChristmasEpisode is uncommonly snow-free.
