** Black John Licorice from "Operation: L.I.C.O.R.I.C.E." was originally intended to be voiced by Geoffrey Rush, the actor who played Captain Barbossa in the ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' film series (which was fitting, given that Black John Licorice was a parody of Barbossa to begin with). Instead, Marc Graue did the voice because Geoffrey Rush's rates were too expensive.

* ActorAllusion:
** Moosk from "Operation: K.N.O.T." is a parody of Minsc from the ''Franchise/BaldursGate'' franchise, right down to being voiced by Creator/JimCummings.
** Also, Creator/FrankWelker voices Professor XXX-L, who in the "Kenny and the Chimp" short, dealt with all kinds of crazy chemicals and diseases; furthermore, he's always got a different set of animal body parts, making him a sort of mutant. All of which seems a bit similar to Welker's character in ''WesternAnimation/SwatKats'', [[EvilutionaryBiologist Dr. Viper]], who got mutated into a half-animal creature after dealing with an unstable chemical, and spoke with a similar voice (albeit with hissing as opposed to XXX-L's lisp, and it's a bit more sinister).
