** The quip about Gamera being nicknamed "Bags" is a reference to jazz vibraphonist Milt Jackson, who had that nickname first.
** They quote from "Once in a Lifetime" by Music/TalkingHeads at several points--after all, much of the movie takes place "at the bottom of the ocean!"

!!The Comedy Central Segments:
[[AC:Prologue]]
* Joel converted Tom into a root beer kegger, so it's time to ''party''!

[[AC:Segment 1/Invention Exchange]]
* The Mads present Film/TheThreeStooges Gun to help recreate choreography from their films. Joel has turned Crow into rows of shish kebabs.

[[AC:Segment 2]]
* Joel wants to know how Gamera works, so the 'Bots created a helpful interactive and labelled model. Just don't ask what's behind the door inside of him.

[[AC:Segment 3]]
* Joel has the 'Bots create dioramas of their favorite ''Gamera'' moments. Tom created Baragon, Crow made Gaos, Gypsy's is incredibly abstract, and Joel himself modeled the SOL as a big loving family. Awww.

[[AC:Segment 4]]
* Gamera has flown up to the SOL, and Kenny and Helen from the movie are riding on his back. A very awkward (and poorly dubbed) conversation follows.

[[AC:Segment 5]]
* Each member of the SOL crew performs their own take on the Gamera Song. Deep 13 follows suit before Dr. F smashes his guitar on the button.
