Easter Eggs

  • At the end, click on the "O" to see What's Her Face with her bunkmate.

Fun Facts

Explanations

  • A Geiger counter measures ionizing radiation.
  • "Nebulae" is the plural term for nebula, a cloud of dust and other debris in space where stars form.
  • The name "Camp Firstbasawassa" is a reference to summer camps that are named after Native American tribes.
  • "Night terrors" are a form of sleep disorder, in which an individual experiences extreme terror during sleep, and a temporary inability to regain full consciousness. Unlike nightmares, night terror episodes are not caused by the perception of a scary event or situation, but a combination of the fear instinct itself and tension or anxiety.
  • Evening bonfire gatherings at summer camps in the United States traditionally include singing nonsensical songs (often accompanied by a guitar) followed by the telling of spooky stories (often involving a killer with a chainsaw).
  • In this context, a wingman is a person who assists a friend in approaching a member of the opposite sex.
  • A rotary phone is a phone that uses a dial instead of pushbuttons.

Trivia

Olsen Twin'd!!
  • This is the first Teen Girl Squad episode to feature realistic background paper.
  • This is arguably the first Teen Girl Squad episode without the Arrow'd Guy (see Mrs. So-and-so-erson).
  • The Shirt Folding Store Manager's hair and face come from an M Magazine article about Mary-Kate Olsen. The manager is also wearing pink Chuck Taylor All-Stars.
  • So And So asking for "smokes" is another reference to smoking.
    • It's also a real-world reference regarding the stereotype that most prison inmates smoke and use cigarette packs as a form of currency.
  • The baseball team on the field in the stadium that the Customer coughs up only has eight players. The shortstop is missing, and the first baseman is standing in foul territory.

Remarks

  • The customer addresses So and So as "Mark" even though she is not wearing the name tag.
  • Passengers in a canoe do not face each other as Cheerleader and The Ugly One do.
  • Until the screen where Sci-Fi Greg begins to remove his shirt, his outfit seems to be one piece.
  • "Trés Cutée" is a mock-French expression. "Trés" (with the aigu accent) means "very" in French. "Cutée" is not a real French word.
A slight misalignment

Glitches

  • The notebook paper in the frame of the toon and outside of the frame do not match up.

Inside References

Real-World References

  • The page title "11 Division Titles!" likely refers to the Atlanta Braves, who, at the time of the toon, had won 11 consecutive division titles.
  • Canoe Reeves is a reference to the actor Keanu Reeves.
  • "Scha-wing!" and "Not!" are catchphrases from the 1992 film Wayne's World.
  • "Who Let the Dogs Out?" is a song written by Anslem Douglas, but was made popular by the Baha Men in 2000. Both references (along with the short shorts) make Camp Counselor Shortshorts seem hopelessly out-of-touch.
  • Folding Mills Mall is a reference to the many "Mills" malls around the USA, run by the Mills Corporation, such as Concord Mills in North Carolina, or Potomac Mills in Virginia.
  • Cosplay is a Japanese subculture centered on dressing as characters from manga, anime, tokusatsu, and video games, and, less commonly, Japanese live action television shows, fantasy movies, or Japanese pop music bands.
  • Beholders are a type of monster prevalent in the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game series.
  • Camp Counselor Shortshorts' shirt, which reads "Got Camp?" is a reference to the famous U.S. Dairy Board slogan "Got Milk?".
  • Campers being killed by maniacs is likely a reference to the "Friday the 13th" film series.
  • "But he couldn't and he wouldn't and he shouldn't" could be reference to hit single "Shoulda Woulda Coulda" by Beverley Knight.
