We see a caption at the bottom of the screen at one point, during Lobe's song and dance with the waiters at the Washington Gardens. It says: "AGNES HACK $25...... EDGAR DE PUS $150...... MRS. GUY FUSTLER $45...... VIC BURMA $100...... YAKKO WARNER $1......" See more »

Crazy Credits

At the end of the credits, there's a long text that appears for less than a second. It explains, in a fictitious way, the reason why there is a long musical number in the middle of the episode. The text is: "One time a space ship full of aliens came down and kidnapped our writing staff. The aliens threatened to blow up the Earth with a solonite bomb unless the writing staff wrote a big, splashy musical number for the Lobe. The writing staff worked for days on the song. The aliens were so pleased with it they agreed not to blow up the Earth. So the next time someone says, 'I don't know why they did that real long musical number in Freakazoid,' you can tell them. You can tell them of the time a rag-tag group of cartoon writers saved the Earth from destruction. And that each new day that dawns over this great, big blue planet of ours is due to these brave individuals." See more »
