For the animated series:
- Dueling Shows: With Recess (which should be pretty obvious to '90s kids).
- Keep Circulating the Tapes: Good luck with that. The show hasn't seen a DVD release, and hasn't been aired on television in years.
For the film:
- Dueling Movies: With The Cabin in the Woods. Both films are post-modern, Genre-Busting takes on the horror genre, and both were released the same weekend.
- Playing Against Type: Dane Cook, best known as a vulgar comic popular with the frat-house set, playing the Dean Bitterman principal.
- Unintentional Period Piece: The opening scene is as much a "Mister Sandman" Sequence for 2011 as the actual "Mister Sandman" Sequence that we get for 1992, while the rest of the film is filled with gags about Torture Porn films, fad diets, '90s nostalgia, and the culture clash between the teens of the early '90s and the early '10s.
For the game:
- Completely Different Title: The original Chinese title for the game is 「返校」, which means "Back to School".
