What were some times a cartoon made references to movies or literature that the target audience wouldn't get?
And Bob's Burgers too.
I think animated sitcoms are the ones who always make movie/literature references most of the time
Bob's Burgers' age demographic is in the low to mid 30s, I think you're underestimating what the target audience is.
They made a Solomon Rushdie joke in the first season.
Archer pulls the same thing.
>Is that really your pussy, Mrs. Slocombe?
I got it because my father was a fan of Are You Being Served? and introduced me to the series in the very early 2000s, but most kids watching probably didn't.
There was also a nod to the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, which might be my all-time favorite "adult" reference in a kids cartoon.
Man, I love how this series was simultaneously smart and stupid at the same time.
Looks like someone's proud of his epic shitposting skills.
Clarence also made a reference to Little Nemo in Slumberland in Clarence's Millions. Not to mention they parody a bunch of songs that were just on the radio in the late '90s early '00s like the background music in the Chuckleton's episode, or them doing Blister in the Sun when they're chasing a lizard.
Nah you're forcing it, you shouldn't be pushing your shit everywhere at once. Let it sink in and then get reused, have a little patience. You know, let it fall off the board before reusing it.
Steven Universe and Junji Ito
I don't think many kids know his works
Also the infamous horse show has dozen of this kind of citations
Speaking about that show,I remember that a few Lovecraft's monsters appear in the Episodes
Gravity falls makes many refences to twin peaks
It's a good album.
The guy just slapped a bunch of popular things together on a picture and thought that made him clever or above it all.
>never watched Star Wars
GO FUCKING WATCH IT TROGLODYTE
What rock have you been living under
Teen Titans Go did a loose parody of the Breakfast Club too, which felt appropriate cuz the first time I learned about the original show was in a TV Guide article comparing the Titans to characters from that movie.
