  • Casting Gag: In Jakeworld, Jake meets someone claiming to be an old friend. The character is voiced by Billy West, who played opposite to Jake's VA in Futurama (West played Fry, among other characters, while DiMaggio voiced Bender the robot — and other characters). The mayor and scientist are also voiced by West, and they reference Futurama characters Zapp Brannigan and Professor Farnsworth.
    • Tress MacNeille (who did voicework on Futurama — and several other shows) voices a literal and figurative urchin, referencing her role as Futurama character Tinny Tim (the orphan robot who first appeared on season two's "Xmas Story"). Her other role is Dr. Adamkinson's dad, referencing Futurama's Mom (from Mom's Friendly Robot Company).
    • The entire episode was likely written as an excuse to make a Futurama reunion.
  • Dream Apocalypse: The world was not entirely a dream, as it did physically exist inside of Jake, but when he decided to leave we can see the Jakeworld melting away as his psychic field's grip on the world weakens.
  • Go Mad from the Revelation: Dr. Adamkinson breaks down crying and dissolves into Jake upon seeing Finn; see below.
  • Homage: The episode is one to Futurama, not just because John DiMaggio gets to voice act with Billy West, Tom Kenny, and Tress MacNeille again, but also because of the aesthetic and science themes. By all accounts, the episode was most likely written as an excuse to have an impromptu Futurama reunion.

  • Humans Are Cthulhu: When the old scientist enters the Land of Ooo, He is horrified at the sight of Finn, who is a massive being compared to him. Finn was even eating spaghetti at the time, with the noodles hanging from his mouth making him look reminiscent of Cthulhu. Or, since this episode is like Futurama, Zoidberg.
  • Instant Sedation: The Magic Man only needs to give a tiny dose of sedative using a bug-size pin to knock Jake out. Probably justified as it may have been magic.
  • I Want You to Meet an Old Friend of Mine: Goose introduces himself as an old friend of Jake, not that Jake recognizes him. Goose is voiced by Billy West, who acted with Jake's voice actor John DiMaggio in Futurama
  • Living Dream: All the inhabitants of Jake world as a puppetted part of his dream made manifest by his own flesh.

  • Single Tear: Jake cries while mourning the loss of his "friend", Goose.
  • Trapped in Another World: Thanks to Magic Man, Jake gets literally sucked into his own body and enters a yellow world made entirely of himself.
