Some of the titles are notable in-jokes, such as the episode "In a Pepper Pickle" where Angela gets pepper stuck up her nose pays homage to the tongue twister Peter Piper.

  • The episode "Everybody Loves Gina" is a parody of Everybody Loves Raymond.
  • The episode "I Wanna Mold Your Band" is a parody of the song "I Wanna Hold Your Hand".
  • "The Lion, the Witch and the Weasel" is a parody of the C. S. Lewis novel The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
  • "All for One" is reminiscent of Alexandre Dumas's The Three Musketeers.
  • "Window Pain" represents the stress of the Anacondas spending the entire episode in a glass cabinet of a museum posing as a normal, present-day family. The episode's title is a pun on windowpane.
  • In the episode "French Connection" CiCi and Nanette can be heard singing "Alouette", and later sing "Frere Jacques" as they share a croissant.
  • In the episode "French Connection" during Angela's imagination sequence, Johnny Abatti cries "Le plane! Le plane!" before falling. This is a reference to the show Fantasy Island.
  • In the episode "Gordy in a Plastic Bubble" when an asthmatic allergy-clad person like Gordy stays at home all day due to their allergies, it is said that they are "stuck in a plastic bubble".
  • The episode title "Fairweather Friends" is based on the term where certain people will only be friends if they do good deeds to the other (during the episode January and Karlene tried to bribe Angela into picking them for the spring fling contest while Nanette was sick with the flu though they cancelled their "fairweather friendship" when they learned that Candy May had been left in charge of the decorations).
  • The episode "Kar-Lean on Me" is a pun on the term "leaning on someone" meaning that someone follows you around in a besotted/obsessed way expecting them to be friends with you (as Karlene did to Angela and co. after Nanette and January fell out with her).
  • In the episode "All for One" when it appears that Team Thistle is lost Johnny notices that they left a trail of Nanette's suitcases leading all the way back to the campsite. This trail pays homage to the German fairytale Hansel and Gretel.
  • In the episode "The Bird Lady of Tapwater Springs" during Angela's imagination sequence she refers to herself as "Dr Anaconda, Medicine Woman" a parody of Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman.
  • Angela's introduction song in the KaBlam! short "First Flush of Love" uses the tune of "We Love you Conrad" from the 1963 film Bye Bye Birdie. (My name is Angela, and Johnny's mine. Nanette Manior is a piece of slime).
  • she also makes a brief cameo appearance in the Movie Digimon and has her own daydream involving the use of digivolution to form Angelamon being a spoof of Tai as her digital self.
