Andy McDandy's appearance is loosely based on Napolean Dynamite.
The tune to musical segment 2, "Bring Me to Life: The Birth of Electric Girl", pays homage to "This is Halloween" from Tim Burton / Henry Selick's classic "The Nightmare Before Christmas" - Harrison Wall's favourite childhood film. Note that both films also started out as poems.
The beat to musical segment 3, "You're the Bot That I Want" comes from "Grease's" "You're the One That I Want".
Listen carefully and you will hear Jessica listening to musical segment "You're the Bot That I Want", from Harrison Wall's short film "CyberBeat", on her iPhone.
"CyberBeat" is a High School musical but arguably more realistic than "High School Musical".
The laborartory scene is an unsubtle parody of the creation of Frankenstein.
