Cultural references

  • When Vambre says "That'll do, Grup That'll do!" is a reference to a minisode "Walkies" as she brushed Oinkus Oinkus Magisword and the ending of the movie, Babe.

Production notes

  • This episode was actually an animatic written by Luke Sienkowski that got him the job at the Mighty Magiswords series. Around the time, the 3-minute Mighty Magiswords shorts were finished and Kyle wanted Luke to be on the show. Of course, Kyle's boss at Cartoon Network had to give Luke a test. His job was to create a storyboard focusing on the Warriors given a task. He went through the wrong direction and improvised a full animatic with voices and sounds done by Luke. This ultimately led Luke to be a storyboard revisionist, writer and voice actor on the show. Additional characters/storyboards were done by Zoe Moss.[1]

Episode connections

  • Vambre's fear of squirrels from "Squirreled Domination" brought up again in this episode.
  • Old Man Oldman shouting "Curse you Warriors" may be a callback to the short "Hands Down".

Real-world references

  • The song The Mysterious Hooded Woman was singing is "Aba Daba Honeymoon" written by Arthur Fields and Walter Donovan.
    • This is the first instance in Magiswords where someone sings a real-life song.
