Continuity

Allusions

  • Sergio Leone - The trademark closeups of the late Italian film director, producer and screenwriter are used throughout the episode.
  • Westworld - The premise of a Western theme-park with robotic cowboys that turn murderous was taken from the 1973 film.
  • Once Upon a Time in the West - The creaking windmill is taken directly from the opening scene of the 1968 film. A variation of "Farewell to Cheyenne", from the movie's soundtrack, plays throughout the episode.
  • The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly - Kid Friendly refers to Norbert at one point as "Blondie", the nickname for Clint Eastwood's character in the 1966 film. The "three-way" showdown is a recall to the climax (as well as the one from the film A Few Dollars More).
  • "Rhinestone Cowboy" - After Norb gets on one of the hoppedy horses, he exclaims "I'm a rhinestone cowboy!", which is a reference to the 1975 country song.
  • A Fistful of Dollars - A song similar to the Overture from the 1964 film plays at several points.
  • Hang 'Em High - At one point, Norb says to Dag "Yes way, Dag 'em high...", which is a reference to the 1968 film. Also, one of Norb and Dag's hiding places was inside the Hang 'Em High School.
  • The Terminator - Kid Friendly's true form is similar to that of The Terminator. Everything from the infrared vision and red eye (similar to T-800) to how he melds himself back together (just like T-1000) is taken mostly from Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
