  • The name of this episode may be a reference to The Beatles' song I Am the Walrus, in which "I am the eggman" is part of the lyrics.
  • The name may also be a reference to Dr. Eggman's Theme from Sonic Adventure 2. Each line of the theme's chorus starts with "I am the Eggman."
  • The professor reads from a monster manual called Gygaxicon, named after Gary Gygax, the creator of Dungeons and Dragons.
  • Angus MacZongo is partly based on James Bond (specificallly Sean Connery, who's from Scotland).
  • When the first sheep are killed and a farmer holds a dead sheep in his arms, he says all the houses of Harry Potter before saying "he killed little Angus!"
  • The planet Doohan 6 is named for James Doohan, the actor who played Scotty on the original Star Trek series.  Owing to Scotty's nationality (Scottish), the entire planet is based on Scottish culture.
  • When Bender pulled the mask McZongo used to disguise himself as Mr. Peppy, Amy says "Jinkies, he Scooby Doo'd us", a reference to the Scooby-Doo franchise.


  • Although Fry names the Bone Vampire he adopts "Mr. Peppy," and the creature is referred to as a male, Fry's pet is probably a girl--in fact, the Bone Vampire-species as a whole is probably all-girls, given how the Professor said that the species reproduces asexually (essentially cloning themselves), much like certain species of lizard.
