Cutural References

  • SpongeBob SquarePants: The episode shares the title with an episode of this show (which is also another Nickelodeon show). The plots are similar because Buhdeuce tries to prove he is better than the Rocket Van and SpongeBob and Squidward try to prove they are better than each other. This episode also resembles a scene from the Spongebob Squarepants movie when Mr. Krabs is announcing the new manager for the Krusty Krab 2. Spongebob gets extremely excited even after Mr. Krabs announced Squidward would be the manager. In Breadwinners "Employee of the Month", Buhdeuce does the same thing when SwaySway announces the winner.
