  • Parody of nature shows such as Animal Planet.
  • The mongoose assumes the part of the shooter on the grassy knoll in a reference to a popular conspiracy theory surrounding the 1963 assassination of U.S. President John F. Kennedy. Here, the Mongoose ends up framing Lee Harvey Oswald for the crime.
  • The mouse pulling a thorn from the paw of a lion is taken from a famous fable called "The Lion and the Mouse".
  • The lemming yelling "For freedom!" before jumping into the blender is a reference to the movie Braveheart.

Trivia / Info:

  • A Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII, which appears in Clown Car Accident is used to run over the Lemmings.

Goofs / Nitpicks:

  • The shot of the lemmings going over the cliff is obviously repeated.
  • Despite wearing bandages and a body cast after he is beaten up by the lion, during the scene where the lion is carted off by police, the hyena is seen with no injuries.
