*As a magical, large-headed trickster, Bozar calls to mind such characters [[Wikipedia:The Great Gazoo|the Great Gazoo]] from [[Wikipedia:The Flintstones|''The Flintstones'']], but his insulting manner and fondness for transmutating objects to cause trouble make it clear that he is most strongly inspired by [[Wikipedia:Superman|Superman]] villain, [[Wikipedia:Mister Mxyzptlk|Mr. Mxyzptlk]].  His "puzzle me twice" taunt is a reference to the [[Wikipedia:Riddler|Riddler]] from the [[Wikipedia:Batman (TV series)|'60s Batman TV show]], in which the villains often taunted the Dynamic Duo by mocking their names. The Riddler's catchphrase was "Riddle me this", immediately followed by an obscure clue as to what his next crime would be.

*"Metalmation" is a reference to the [[Wikipedia:Filmation|Filmation]] animation studio, with the logos looking very similar.  Filmation was famous for churning out cookie-cutter cartoons, many of which also took place in space for no good reason.

*The repeated "band being chased" segments may be a reference to a Hanna-Barbera '70s staple of stock-footage chase scenes, which appeared most prominently in [[Wikipedia:Scooby-Doo|Scooby-Doo]]. Also, this may refer to the [[Wikipedia:Beatles|Beatles]], who spent a good deal of ''A Hard Day's Night''—a typical day in the life of the band—running away from adoring female fans. It also recalls the premise of the video game ''[[Wikipedia:Journey Escape|Journey Escape]]'', which the Brothers Chaps mentioned in the commentary for [[more armies]].

*"Four-armed Grimace" is a reference to the purple [[Wikipedia:McDonaldland|McDonaldland]] character. [[Wikipedia:Grimace|Grimace]] was originally named "The Evil Grimace", and he had four arms (replaced with two arms a few years later) so that he could hold many shakes at once.

*"On the contrary, my dear Fatson" is an adaptation of "Elementary, my dear Watson", a line often attributed to Sir [[Wikipedia:Arthur Conan Doyle|Arthur Conan Doyle's]] character [[Wikipedia:Sherlock Holmes|Sherlock Holmes]], though he never actually used that exact phrase in the Holmesian canon.
