* In "Home Sweet Homer," Scrooge, after the effects of the Sirens' song wear off, asks, "Ever hear a song you can't get out of your head?" Now that his series is famous for having one of if not ''the'' most relentless {{Ear Worm}}s of all time, he sounds like he's LeaningOnTheFourthWall.

Added DiffLines:

* In "[[Recap/DuckTalesS1E4WhereNoDuckHasGoneBefore Where No Duck Has Gone Before]]", Major Courage calls Launchpad "L.P." [[WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck The next person to use that nickname]] would be a lot friendlier.

I make [[Franchise/StarWars Darth Vader]] look about as scary as a hood ornament of a 53 Buick! Compared to me, [[Franchise/MarvelUniverse Dr. Doom]] is a wimp!" Guess what franchises Disney eventually came to own?
* In "A [=DuckTales=] Valentine", Scrooge is struck by a curse which is only broken by the power of true love, of the platonic variety. To some degree, it seems like an early attempt to write a story with the {{A|nAesop}}esop of ''Disney/{{Frozen}}''.
