* There are even references to KingdomHearts! Casey's key you have to get near the start of the game? It's design is very similar to Kairi's keyblade. Mickey getting his heart stolen sounds familiar as well. Some of the blotlings act very similar to heartlesses.

** Actually, this game may be the best example here, as, according to the dev team, ''[[ShownTheirWork every single detail]]'' is a ShoutOut to some obscure bit of Creator/{{Disney}} history. [[MickeyMouse Mickey's]] sidekick, [[DeadpanSnarker Gus?]] He's from an unmade WWII cartoon by Roald Dahl. The {{NPC}}s on [[HubLevel Mean Street]]? Extras from ClassicDisneyShorts. ''[[SerialEscalation Individual barrels?]]'' You'd better believe they turned up in one Creator/{{Disney}} project or another before showing up here. ShownTheirWork doesn't ''begin'' to cover it.

Animatronics of the Tortoise (from the Tortoise and the Hare) and [[spoiler:[[Disney/PetesDragon Eliot]]]] (as a boss) have also showed up.
