When Dim scares Thumper away, his roar is the same as the T-Rex in Jurassic Park.
The bird chase is similar when dot was once chased by a crow, but the bugs escape the bird back to ant island in the knick of time.
Director John Lasseter mentioned that the character of Dim (voiced by Brad Garrett) was based on the big brutish yet not so smart character (who had the same name) in A Clockwork Orange.
At one point Manny cries out "the pain! the pain!", which was a Dr Smith expression from "Lost in Space".
