* The short [[BlindWithoutEm nearsighted]], lost man in "The Wrong Customer" who unwittingly destroys the restaurant with his bumbling antics is an obvious take on [[MagoosPuddleJumper Mr. Magoo]].

* In one episode, after Chowder unearths a sugar sapphire, Mung tastes it. [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar He has a seizure, shaking his head about, before it spontaneously pops to]] [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls Bubbles' head]] saying [[NightmareFuel "Aww, that's sweeet!"]] [[LettingTheAirOutOfTheBand as part of the theme song is played.]]

* Oh so much video games especially ''VideoGame/KatamariDamacy'' and ''SuperMarioBros''. (twice. Two [[CaptainErsatz Captain Ersatzes]] of Mario and Luigi show up in one episode and an oversized Bowser shows up in another) being two obvious examples.
** In "Sniffleball" we get [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nx2JDI8ZNvc a whole scene]] based on the original SuperMarioBros game with Gorgonzola in an obvious parody of Bowser.

* Similarly, in "Weekend At Shnitzel's", there's a fight scene that takes a lot of cues from ''StreetFighter'', including a recognizable HurricaneKick, {{Shoryuken}}, [[KamehameHadoken Hadoken]], and Flash Kick. Plus a ''MortalKombat''-style demand for a FinishingMove: "Get 'er done!" as [[spoiler:Shnitzel]] is knocked down.

** The referee shouts "'''''GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAALLLL!!!'''''""'''''GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAALLLL!!!'''''", like in latin soccer.

Added DiffLines:

* The Apprentice President from "Panini For President" is equal parts John F. Kennedy and [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons "Diamond" Joe Quimby]], which is itself rather amusing since the latter was partially inspired by the former. He has Quimby's nearly spherical physique, Kennedy's Irish red hair and their mutual exaggerated "New Yoak" accent.

Added DiffLines:

* The live-action car wash sequence from "Shopping Spree" is accompanied by [[SuspiciouslySimilarSong an instrumental disco song that sounds like]] the theme song from ''Film/CarWash''.


* Back before Chowder first aired, C.H. Greenblatt expressly stated how much ''KatamariDamacy'' inspired him in the creation of this show. The King of All Clouds (Sky?) is intentionally based off The King of All Cosmos, as well as the entire Grubble Gum episode.

* When Chowder is possessed by the Poultrygeist, he starts insulting Mung, telling him that [[MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail "Your mother was a polar bear! Your father was a figure skater!" and telling him that he smells of flour and cheese.]]

* By far, the greatest collection of {{Shout Out}}s in one episode is the episode "Tofu Town Showdown", which is pretty much the writers challenging each other to cram as many references to kung-fu films and shonen anime within the span of 11 minutes. For example, Shnitzel's samurai outfit is the yellow-black striped outfit from BruceLee's ''Game of Death'' (which is more popular as what Uma Thurman's The Bride character wore in the ''Kill Bill'' movies), Chowder sings a pastiche of [[RockyIII "Eye of the Tiger"]], Shnitzel wins the final battle by going ''[[DragonBall SUPER SAIYAN]]'', and finally, '''''[[StreetFighter "RAHDOKEN!!"]]'''''

Added DiffLines:

* Sour Ron from "The Puckerberry Overlords" is a play on [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Sauron]].

* In "The Hot Date," one of the character is waiting at a fancy restaurant for the titular hot blind date, who is very late. At one point, Ms. Bellum from ThePowerpuffGirls shows up looking for ''her'' blind date (complete with the Powerpuff Girls theme playing in the background), having been delayed due to a monster attack, only for her date to be someone else.

* In Sing Beans, the on-edge customer waiting for his order strikes a very clear resemblance to the Lion from TheWizardOfOz, especially in voice.
