Luke agrees, although he has no idea what Adam West means. This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ...

Notes

  • The TV Guide Peter sees, featuring Luke Perry on the cover, reads “If you can read this, Family Guy is on the air.”
  • The family watches a fictitious sitcom called Sherry and the Anus, whose ending credits list real life Family Guy writers and directors as producers of the show-within-a-show.
  • This episode is one of the few times that a character is shown with nipples.
  • When Neil, the newspaper editor, takes out his retainer and speaks, he sounds like Stan Smith from another Seth MacFarlane show, American Dad. However, this show was created years after the Family Guy episode aired and is probably a coincidence based on Seth McFarlane’s portrayal of both characters.

TV Guide is the name of two North American weekly magazines about television programming, one in the United States and one in Canada. ... A show-within-a-show is typically a fictional television show featured within the fictional universe of a real television show, or a montage/one theatrical show within another theatrical show (like Annie Get Your Gun ). Less frequently, the term may be applied to a fictional radio show within a... Nipple is, generally, the name given to the mammalian nipple, or to things resembling it, such as the tip of an artificial teat or the tip of a grease secreting mechanism in machinery. ...

Cultural references

  • The flashback showing Brian’s college years, during which he was harassed for being a dog, parodies the 1992 film School Ties, in which Brendan Fraser’s character is harassed for being Jewish (in the movie, the message on the wall read “Go Home, Jew!” instead of “Go Home, Dog!”).
  • The guard at the Dean’s office shouts, “Nobody sees the Dean, not nobody, not no how,” a reference to the Wizard’s guards in The Wizard of Oz.
  • Lois says that, when she was in college, the National Guard shot some of her friends, indicating that she went to Kent State during the 1970 shootings on the campus.
  • Peter says that he wanted to name Meg after Twiki, a robot from Buck Rogers in the 25th Century.
  • A cutaway to Meg’s probable future without a college education show her modeling in a bikini at a “bum fight,” an event in which homeless people fight one another in exchange for food, alcohol or some other incentive. These events were captured in the controversial 2002 documentary Bumfights.
  • When Meg goes to interview Mayor West, he asks her if she is Sarah Connor, a character from The Terminator.
  • When Peter’s typing on the typewriter, the camera pans around him, then he tosses the paper from the typewriter, where it then forms the logo for Stephen J. Cannell Productions (mistakenly spelled “Steven” in the spoof logo). It may be the only logo (of three, the others being UBU Productions and Tri-Star Pictures) from the world of TV, movies or home video to have been parodied on Family Guy.
  • After holding an exploding bomb from Mayor West, Meg has Daffy Duck’s bill on the wrong side of her head, and then states, “Of course, you realize, this means war,” parodying a frequent gag on Looney Tunes.
  • Stewie uses his mind control device to force Chris to sing “Puttin’ on the Ritz” by Irving Berlin. This refers to a scene in Mel BrooksYoung Frankenstein where the monster performs the same song.
  • The scene in which Thomas Jefferson’s family is shown as mostly black children is a reference to the recently unveiled evidence that he fathered children with his slave Sally Hemings.
  • When Peter lists things that distract kids today, he includes the game Rock ’Em Sock ’Em Robots, the geometric drawing toy the Spirograph, the psychedelic rock band Moby Grape, and 90210 despite the fact that they all (except 90210) date back to at least the mid-1960s, indicating he might have lost touch with the current generation.
  • Peter tells Luke that Dark Side of the Moon synchs up with The Wizard of Oz, a popular notion about the album. Perry mentions that he heard the same from Beverly Hills 90210 co-star Shannen Doherty but thought that she was “just being a bitch,” a popular tabloid portrayal of the actress.
  • A scene from Big is parodied when Stewie walks up to a Zoltar machine and says “I wish I was big.” The machine responds with “I wish I could weigh people.”
  • There is a scene where Peter in a flashback is a Ghostbuster and interrupts the famous potter wheel scene in the movie Ghost and sucks up Patrick Swayze.
  • In the scene where Luke Perry is reading “every high school newspaper,” his “wife” calls from off-screen “Luke! Luke, time for dinner!”, quoting Aunt Beru from Star Wars: A New Hope when she calls him to dinner after he finds Leia’s message in R2.
  • A cutaway shows Ricky Martin dressing up as a woman after a concert and performing under the name Jewel.
  • Peter thinks that Luke Perry, and not Tom Cruise, starred in Rain Man.
