Trivia

Jump to: Director Cameo (1)
Fearless Leader (Robert De Niro) says to Boris & Natasha "You talkin' to me?...There's no one else here, so you must be talking to me". This is a reference to his most famous lines in Taxi Driver (1976).
This film was originally in pre-production in the early 1990s, with Danny DeVito and Meryl Streep set to play Boris and Natasha. Legal problems with copyrights prevented the film being made until several years later.

When Rocky and Bullwinkle arrive at Wossamata U, Keenan Thompson and Kel Mitchell's characters mention how the university has been live-action since 1964, once the show went into reruns. Keenan then turns to Kel and jokes, "That'll never happen to us, right?" To which Kel responds, "Right" as they wink at each other. Ironically, their show "Keenan and Kel" on Nick had just ended a month before the film's release, and went into reruns shortly after.
