  • In episode one, there is a man selling tubes in the shape of letters. The letter he gives you is a "U Tube", a reference to YouTube.
    • Also, the fact that you can "buy a vowel" while consonants are free may be a reference to popular game show Wheel of Fortune.
  • There is a character whose last name is "D'Oro". He refuses to be referred to as "D'Oro the Explorer", most likely because it resembles the name of popular children's show Dora the Explorer.
