Quotes

  • The Pumpkin Guy's Song:
"Tonight's my night, I'm the Pumpkin Guy,
on all Hallow's Eve, I'll fly through the sky,
but alas and alack, I'm bored out of my skull,
my once favorite holiday has grown so dull!
It's tired, trite, and also routine,
I crave different thrills on this Halloween.
I wonder what hides beyond this door,
It just might be what I'm looking for."
  • Babs Bunny: "Case in point: the most gruesome, heart-stoppingly horrific image ever to be framed..." (Unveils the picture) "It's my third grade school photo! AAAAH!" (Kicks the photo out) "But I digress. Here's something 'almost' as frightening..."
  • (Gogo and his friends open a door, trying to escape from the haunted house, but the World's Biggest Tiny Toons Fan is at the door)
World's Biggest Tiny Toons Fan: "In the cartoon, The Amazing Three, there was a slight flutter on Fifi's face in scene C43, and I wanted to know if that was a deliberate in-joke, or just a mistake. And when is Fifi gonna get her own series?"
(Gogo and his friends scream in fear)
  • Elmyra: "My ultimate petsy-wetsy is almost complete! All that's missing is... The Bwain! Dizzygor, give me the Bwain!"
(Dizzygor empties a jar that holds Brain, of Pinky and the Brain fame, inside it)
Brain: "The obvious nature of this pun belittles us all."
Elmyra: "Ooh! I'll play with you later!"

Allusions

  • In the theme song, for their Halloween costumes, Plucky is dressed as Freddy Krueger, Monty is dressed as J. Paul Getty, Gogo is "scary Soupy Sales", Hamton is Barney Rubble from The Flintstones, Shirley is Paula Abdul(?), and Fifi is Dot Warner from Animaniacs.
  • The episode segment, The Tell-Tale Vacuum, is a parody of The Tell-Tale Heart, by Edgar Allan Poe.
  • The episode segment, Sneezer the Sneezing Ghost, is a parody of Casper the Friendly Ghost.
  • In the episode segment, Sneezer the Sneezing Ghost, Furrball dresses as a Ghostbuster to catch Sneezer.
  • The episode segment, The Devil Dog on the Moors, is a possible parody of the story of Cchulainn and the Hound of Uster. (Though the real Hound of Uster was a demigod, not a real dog)

  • The episode segment, Daniel Webfoot, is a parody of the short story and film, The Devil and Daniel Webster.

Trivia

  • This special marks the final appearance of the TTA gang on TV, although Elmyra later appeared in the short-lived and ill-fated spin-off, Pinky, Elmyra, and the Brain, and the gang has made some appearances in comic books and video games that were released after this episode.
  • This special was the last time that Don Messick voiced Hamton J. Pig. Messick died a little over two years after this special premiered.
  • Baloney the Dinosaur, a Barney parody from the Animaniacs episode, Baloney and Kids, makes a cameo appearance in the sketch, The Devil and Daniel Webfoot. Mr. Director from the same show can be also be seen.
  • The "World's Biggest Tiny Toon Fan" in the sketch, Night of the Living Dull, is based on Dennis Falk, an actual overly-obsessed fan the production team encountered while working on Tiny Toon Adventures. He was a stalker who sent Tress MacNeille disturbing letters which caused her to fear for life and cancel any convention appearances she was planning to make around where he lives.
  • In the sketch, Frankenmyra and Dizzygor, The Brain, from Animaniacs, and its spin-off, Pinky and the Brain, makes a brief cameo appearance. The Brain's cameo appearance, as well as Elmyra's following line, may be a possible foreshadowing of the ill-fated spin-off, Pinky, Elmyra, and the Brain.
  • On October 27, 2012, this special aired on the Vortex Saturday morning block on The CW (formerly The WB) at 8:30am EST. It is unknown if Saban brought broadcast rights to the Warner Brothers 1990's animated cartoon, or some of the specials from that time period.
  • When this aired on Fox, as well as the Hub Network, and on international broadcasts (for example, Germany and Brazil), The Pumpkin Guy's song was cut out, as was the closing song, in favor of the Tiny Toon Adventures Theme Song, with footage from both the opening and closing credits. Reruns on other networks keep The Pumpkin Guy's song.
  • The car Calamity Coyote is driving is a 1971 plymouth valiant like the one in Duel.
  • The animation was made by Tokyo Movie Shinsa.
  • This is the second TV special that Bookworm didn't appear.
