* DisproportionateRetribution: In "Hall Monster", Jimmy is elected as the Hall Monitor and the power immediately goes to his head, causing him to bust students for the smallest things, like Carl having too many llama stickers on his lunchbox. It takes watching security that Goddard recorded and a reminder from his dad [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone to realize the error of his ways]].

* FancyCamping: Jimmy does this with the help of one of his inventions (guided by a haulagraphic butler) not only because he couldn't bear to enjoy any trip without those conveniences, but also because his father is bad at being a camp leader

* LadyLooksLikeADude: Carl's mother is the ugliest female on the show. With a very hoarse ''masculine'' voice. Helps that like Carl, and Mr. Wheezer, she is voiced by RobPaulsen.

* NonStandardKiss: Inverted in "Win, Lose and Kaboom!": when April locks lips with Jimmy, he assumes that she's kissing him, but she states that it's the Gorlockan seal of trust, and has no idea what a kiss is. Averted when she does it again later, saying "that was a kiss" after Jimmy asks if that was the aforementioned seal of trust.

* {{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.

** 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.
