Trivia: Fanboy and Chum Chum
  • Cross-Dressing Voices: Nika Futterman as Chum Chum.
  • Fake Brit: Jamie Kennedy as Kyle.
    • When Chum Chum believes that he is Kyle in "Lord of the Rings", he begins speaking with a British accent.
    • Fake Nationality: Jeff Bennett fakes a German accent with Sigmund, and an Austrian one with the Dollarnator.
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Is that Chum Chum or Asajj Ventress?
  • Shout-Out: In one case, they had one to the Dramatic Chipmunk.
    • The Dramatic Chimpmunk reference was even hinted with Fanboy's dialogue shortly after. "Oh, that CHIPMUNK was just being DRAMATIC."
    • The "Cone of Silence" to either Dune or Get Smart, though more likely the former.
    • "A Bopwork Orange" to, well... duh.
    • One of Fanboy and Chum Chum's classmates is named Michael Johnson, who often moonwalks instead of walking regularly, and wears a Thriller jacket.
    • In "Sigmund the Sorcerer", after Sigmund performs a series of magic stunts, Oz exclaims, "Okay, my mind has been freaked!"
    • Another obvious one, "The Tell-Tale Toy." For a kid's cartoon, they actually pulled it off really well.
    • Then there are episode titles "Total Recall", "Saving Private Chum Chum", and "Lord of the Rings", the plots of which don't have much to do with the works they are referencing.
    • Boog, a very obvious John Travolta parody, has a sweet ride named Sandy, all three of those homages to Grease.
      • His voice is modeled after the Travolta character Vinnie Barbarino in the movie Welcome Back, Kotter.
    • Oz bursts through the door with a sword... "In the end there can be only one." (A reference to Highlander.)
    • Poopatine. "And now, gum, you will die".
    • The second part of "Brain Freeze," photos of their unremembered Brain Freeze spree on the closing credits and all.
      • Not just the montage, the whole premise of the second part is inspired by that movie.
    • A Running Gag in the episode "Gameboy" had Fanboy announcing, "I'm on a goat!"
  • Playing Against Type: Josh Duhamel, who usually plays badasses in live action, does the voice for Oz.
  • Talking to Himself: Jeff Bennett does the voices of many recurring characters, including Boog and Agent Johnson, who argue with each other in "A Bopwork Orange". He also voices Man-Arctica and his Arch-Enemy, the Global Warmer.
