- Hilarious in Hindsight:
- This episode lampoons the amount of George Lucas Altered Versions that were coming out at the time, complete with a Parody Commercial for a remastered version of South Park S 1 E 1 Cartman Gets An Anal Probe. Recently, with Trey and Matt going back and remastering the earlier episodes in HD, that includes making similar changes to the animation and adding extra sound effects and music.
- The episode portrays Steven Spielberg as the mastermind behind all the alterations being made, with George Lucas weakly following along. In real life, Spielberg came to regret changing E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and made sure all future theatrical and home releases of the film were the original version. Meanwhile, Lucas continued to alter the Star Wars films up until Disney bought the rights.
