* SimilarlyNamedWorks: One segment parodied reality and nature by putting a box of monkeys on an island with landmines: "Crazy Monkeys on Landmine Island". Not to be confused with the ''VideoGame/MonkeyIsland'' series of video games.

Added DiffLines:

* ScrewedByTheLawyers: Due to the extra length nature of the ''Star Wars'' specials, the show's creators need permission of the property holders whenever they want to make one. George Lucas, a fan of the show, gave the show his blessing without any issues. However, things became much more complicated when Lucas sold the ''Star Wars'' franchise to Disney, as now instead of needing to get permission of one man, the show now needs the permission of a rival company. Not helping matters is the fact that Disney are seemingly not fans of ''Star Wars'' parodies, with them shelving ''Star Wars Detours'', a child friendly ''Star Wars'' parody show also created by Seth Green, before it could be released. The show is free to continue making short sketches of ''Star Wars'' but the chances of a fourth full length special is slim to none.


* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Comes with being a LongRunner and topics coming and going. For instance a lot of their earlier sketches knock George W. Bush and Lindsey Lohan, figures that were controversial in early 2000s, but not much relevance nowadays.
