- During the "lil' meander" where Larrity introduces himself to Dave and Jerry, they pass through environments that are graphically and architecturally very similar to worlds 1-2 and 1-4 of Super Mario Bros. A Koopa Troopa is also seen in this area, which Dave jumps on, sliding it under Jerry and Larrity and knocking them over. Clarence disappears from here in a Warp Pipe, all of which are clearly referring to recurring elements in the popular Mario series.
- A recurring element in Larrity's office in this and many future episodes are random items placed on his desk with a price number next to them. This is a reference to The Legend of Zelda.
- When Black Steve shoots his gun at Dave and Jerry, if you look close enough, you can see a mean little face on the bullet. This is similar to the Bullet Bills from the Mario franchise.
