- The life-size Britney Spears doll from the untitled Guava Guava Kristmas Klassic ("Change its diaper every hour, or else it dies!") seems pretty funny, unless you feel sick of Britney Spears bashing.
- "Awesome Blossom"'s surprisingly accurate depiction of life in the year 2000 includes Blossom encountering a foul-mouthed Weeble.
- Also, the parts where "Awesome Blossom" resorts to recycling Star Wars clips a la Muppet Babies.
- The Head Executive receives a letter requesting that Peter Paltridge review a Spider-Man comic about a subject that the Executive censors over with the word, "DELETED"note . Mary Jane becomes disgusted after discovering Spidey did a story about this, even though he claims it was for a good cause, so he tries to assure her, "I swear, I've only ever gotten deleted for you!"
- One of the Kimwon features that Vess MacMeal's husband discovers in "Vess MacMeal Starring in: The More You Know!" involves acting as a steering wheel. An ad appearing over the wheel causes him to crash into a tree, but fortunately, the Kimwon can call 911... the ambulance driver crashes into a pole while using a Kimwon to drive to the accident site, but at least that Kimwon can also call 911!
- From the last page of "Vess MacMeal...", Kim Jong Il revealing, "The Kimwon is made of people!" and the way Vess, her husband, and Junior respond.

- Peter begins "Eulogy for Alf" by saying he originally planned to write a tribute to the then-recently deceased Ed McMahon, but considered changing it to a Farrah Fawcett tribute after she died, but ultimately, he knew he had to write something about Alf's death. After going through a lengthy and fabricated account of Alf's rise and fall, Paltridge announces he suddenly heard that one more celebrity passed away: Billy Mays, who he then calls the biggest loss of them all.
- The comments Peter makes in his Aladdin: The Return of Jafar review about the occasionally ghastly animation.
- When Marie Osmond shows up in the Walt Disney TV special reviewed in "Walt Disney: One Man's Nightmare", Peter decides to share a theory about the fact she lacks visible signs of aging:
- "Love is Hard" fabricates a scenario about an ordinary man desiring a donut, but having several obstacles prevent him from reaching it. The article compares the donut to the Spider-Man Trilogy incarnation of Mary Jane Watson, defined mainly by Peter Parker's desire for her. To apply the analogy to Spider-Man 3, the story of the man and the donut takes this direction once he finally has it in his possession:
So before eating the donut, the man runs out for a few minutes, and then comes back with a horrible haircut and an emo attitude. "You've changed, Gerald! I don't want you to eat me anymore!" says the donut, and rolls off the plate and out his apartment door. The tension is sort of back, but it's not the same. And we still don't know anything about the donut, or why it just talked now, or if it was sentient all this time.
- As part of his Will And Dewitt review (part of an overall review of Kids' WB!'s final day, Peter reviews the "Small Potatoes" episode...except he describes the plot of RoboCop (1987) with Will in Alex Murphy's place instead of the actual episode. All capped off with "From this, I learned to share."
- Peter wonders in his review of Disney Princess Enchanted Tales: Follow Your Dreams if Merryweather lent her wand to Aurora specifically so the likelihood of Aurora misusing its powers could make chaos ensue.
- "THE FULL EXPERIENCE: Beetlejuice" includes a compilation of ABC interstitials hosted by Yakov Smirnoff, bearing the title, "Don't watch this, it's awful".
- The stories Peter makes up in "Seven Failed Brand Crossovers" about the origins and failures of Cosmopolitan Yogurt and Clairol Touch of Yogurt Shampoo.
- When Peter reaches Amy and the Angel in his gallery of ABC Afterschool Special advertisements, he admits that he recalls seeing another movie with the exact same plot, except that Kermit the Frog played the lead character. (He reviewed that movie a few years earlier.)
- Peter's textual comments on some of the commercials that played during The Star Wars Holiday Special.
- The caption used in "The Perils of Lois, Part II" for issue #192◊ of Superman's Girl Friend, Lois Lane:
Superman (on cover): Yes, Lana...it's true! I killed Lois Lane!
Lana Lang (in caption): "You...you killed Lois? ......Does this mean you're free Saturday?"
- "Sabrinas Through Time III" makes the following comment about a part of the Sabrina the Teenage Witch pilot missing from Peter's recording:
I've been informed that after Libby became human again, she swore to tell everyone what a freak Sabrina was and left. Evidently she still didn't get completely clued in or she would have bowed at their* feet from this point.
- The list of Free Spirit episodes that the studio might have produced if the show lasted longer:
It's a travesty we were robbed of all the following:
* The Clip Show where Winnie is "put on trial" by a supernatural court that replays all her past shortcomings, but they let her go when they're so moved by clips of her hugging people
* The two-part Vacation Episode where they go to Disneyland, and the whole thing is one big commercial for Disneyland with a few very light plot elements to tie together the gratuitous shots of the most popular rides
* The inevitable episode where Winnie time-travels and winds up in 17th century Salem, Massachusetts
* The episode guest-starring Boys II Men
* The Free Spirit/thirtysomething Crossover
* The really weak final season after Winnie and Thomas have gotten married, Alyson Hannigan has left the series, and an annoying little child has been adopted
- In the article about the Free Spirit Halloween special, Peter follows a montage of young Alyson Hannigan with an attempt to type in her then-unpolished acting style, if that makes any sense.
- From "Platypus Comix Covers The 1981 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade!", Peter's response to the multiple scenes of Ed McMahon conversing with a cheaply-animated Strawberry Shortcake:
She just won't leave him alone! (snip) Just kiss already, you two.
