Trivia

At one point one of the boys brings French magazine "Pilote" which features part of the first "Asterix" comic story and the boys get the idea to scam people into thinking they invented the magic potion from "Asterix". Both "Asterix" and "Le petit Nicholas" where created by Rene Goscinny in 1959. The scam also mimics the scene from the very first Asterix story where Getafix the Druid and Asterix trick the Roman soldiers into thinking they drink the magic potion.
