  • Parody of The Wizard of Oz.
  • The usual Oz characters are replaced by Eric Draven from the film The Crow, Optimus Prime of TV's Transformers and Lion-O from TV's Thundercats.
  • Optimus Prime yells "Oh yeah!" when bursting through the wall of the Witch's castle, an allusion to Kool-Aid commercials in which the Kool-Aid Man does the same thing.
  • The way the monkey commits suicide is similar to the scene in The Shawshank Redemption in which the exact same thing happens.

Trivia / Info:

  • The beginning of this segment references Unicorn Mayonnaise and Greatest American Nerd.
  • Eden Espinosa once again reprises her role as The Wicked Witch of the West in this sketch from I'm Melting and the production of Wicked.
  • "That's just Prime" was never spoken by Optimus Prime, but was the catchphrase of his descendant Optimus Primal in Beast Wars.
  • The Optimus Prime they used is a Masterpiece Optimus Prime figure with trailer

Goofs / Nitpicks:

  • Eric Draven's behavior at the end of the sketch is not consistent with his character. Guess it must have been the magic of boobs!
