I feel bad because I can’t remember which episode it was in which a riffer quietly said “Meep meep” just before something blew up in the desert.*

Can’t forget, :notes: “With my sword and magic helmet…” :notes: from Design For Dreaming. Recognizable despite being a slight misquote.

“How the Grinch Stole Christmas” has been referenced a lot, Cindy Lou Who, the song, the Grinch himself and his dog… like when Mike spots the tiny antlers in Leech Woman.

Wasn’t that originally from Looney Tunes? (And maybe they got it from someone else, too.)

Tom Servo’s Snagglepuss references in two episodes of the reboot :>
(I haven’t completed watching the reboot btw. I have around 5 episodes left to watch)
His references are only one of Snagglepuss’ catchphrases, that being; Exit, stage left!
