- Plumbing the Death Star:
"We use pop culture references to explain older pop culture references."
- Guest star Shant explains how The Good Guys Always Win in Harry Potter by comparing it to "betting on Sebulba, he always wins," a quote from The Phantom Menace. He lampshades how strange it is to reference something so specific as Jackson passionately puts forward that there just aren't enough good Phantom Menace references in the world.
- In "When Bad Guys Go Good," Zammit tries to explain the dynamics of his good-aligned versions of the sharks from Jaws by comparing them to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the X-Men. Jackson laughs at how recursive their pop culture references have become that they need to explain.
- In Red Panda Adventures, the Mad Monkey's debut episode, "Monkeyshines", reveals his origin story as the Sole Survivor of a plane crash who lived among baboons so long before his rescue that he developed a psychic affinity with them. He had a brief tour telling his story on the lecture circuit better he was overshadowed by the lost English lord who could talk to apes and the the little Indian boy who was raised by wolves.
- Bear in the Big Blue House:
- In "I've Gotta Be Me," Bear dons a grayish sweater and tells us that "It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood." Some familiar music plays and he suggests that maybe he should get a pair of sneakers.
- At one point in the episode "Let's Get Interactive," Bear is looking for dirt, water and seeds to help solve a puzzle. He says "You know, these things would be a lot easier to find if we had a couple of guides to help us" and then Pip and Pop show up. When he says this, closed-captioning reads "You know, these things would be a lot easier to find if we had a little blue dog to help us."
- At the end of "I've Got Your Number," Luna states that "numbers go on and on forever, to infinity and beyond!"
- According to this, the "What If?" song from "A Beary Bear Christmas" was patterned after the film It's a Wonderful Life, down to it being presented in black-and-white.
