** Speaking of ''Series/{{Today}}'', back in 1983 that show's (now semi-retired) weatherman Willard Scott once did a spectacular Carmen Miranda impression on-air, complete with PimpedOutDress. In season 4 of ''Roundhouse'', Carmen Miranda and Willard Scott were spoofed in two consecutive episodes. "Objection" features a quick MirandaRights gag involving Lisa Vale doing an impression of the actress while reading said rights. While in the episode "Claptrap", David Sidoni briefly appears as "Willard Snot" giving a weather report (true to the episode's themes, the bit involves opening an umbrella indoors), complete with birthday greeting to a 105-year-old.

* CriticalDissonance: The show won no less than ''four'' different awards during its time (including an Ollie Award for "Excellence In Television Programming For America's Children") but never managed to find an audience. This is sad, since (despite what WebOriginal/TheNostalgiaCritic says) many of the show's jokes and sketches were actually pretty funny, and you could tell that the cast had a lot of fun doing the series (not to mention that the show had many fantastic original songs, two of which also won awards for Best Song).

** In "You Can't Fire Your Family", one of the cases in the "Hand Me Down Syndrome" sketch is a girl who only has a dress that her aunt wore in 1967 to wear to her prom. If this were to happen in 2015, she wouldn't seem so out of place, considering how many people wear vintage clothing nowadays.

** The independence episode had a line about [[AllGirlsWantBadBoys bad boys]] "that make Creator/MrT look like Series/{{Mister Rogers|Neighborhood}}!" - some two decades before they would be paired with each other on ''WebVideo/EpicRapBattlesOfHistory''.

*** In the same episode, the Wicked Witch (Julene as Shannon Doherty) meets her demise when she snatches the carbonated water bottle that Amy was holding and then drinks from it ("I'm belching!!"). In the Muppets version, the Wicked Witch (Miss Piggy, [[ActingForTwo who plays the other witches as well]]) meets her demise when she falls into her bathtub and shrivels up when the flying monkeys tell her that it was filled with tap water instead of the bottled water she normally bathes with.

** In the OffToSeeTheWizard episode (aired 1994), the Munchkins are represented as agents (i.e. Luncheons) who tell Amy, "Let's do lunch!" before she sets off on the Yellow Slick Road. 11 years later, ''Film/TheMuppetsWizardOfOz'' comes out, and the Munchkins' (represented in that film by the rats) introductory song opens with the lines "Calling all Munchkins, let's do lunch-kins!"

** One of the spoof skits in the talent show episode is ''Lame'', a parody of ''Film/{{Fame}}'' which features Amy as "School of Pathetic Arts" alumni [[Music/FleetwoodMac Stevie Nicks]]. As fate would have it, Amy would go on to play Grace "Lambchops" Lamb in a production of ''Fame'', TheMusical.
