Shout Out: The Fairly OddParents
  • There are several references to To both DC Comics and Marvel Comics, Star Wars, Tom and Jerry, etc.
  • There's also one to Spongebob Squarepants in the episode where they visit Atlantis that borders on Take That. "Our diet consists mainly of crabs, starfish, and the occasional underwater squirrel."
  • The most obscure example would be Bubsy, whose catch phrase was "What could possibly go wrong?!"...which became Timmy's catchphrase. Also considered a Take That since this line is delivered in the most wooden, cliche way possible.
  • Another in which Timmy creates a male version of Vicky for her to fall in love with, at the end of the episode Ricky goes off with Crocker's mom (after a dating site mishap) and Vicky exclaims "Ricky, don't lose my number! You don't have to call nobody else!" a line from "Rikki Don't Lose That Number" by Steely Dan.
  • Dr. Mindbender was an orthodontist before joining COBRA, and his real name was "Dr. Bender".
