15 Shocking Easter Eggs Hidden in Cartoon Network Shows!


15 Easter Eggs Hidden in Cartoon Network Shows Hey Crash, today we’re going to look at
15 Easter Eggs hidden in cartoon network shows. More specifically, we’ll delve into the
seedy underbelly of innocent-seeming shows and the connecting cameos of these cartoons. Awesome! I can’t get enough of these cartoon episodes! Good to hear! What was your favourite cartoon growing up? I couldn’t just pick one Culture! Flinstones, Thundercats, Adventure Time… Oh that’s really uh… a mixed bag. In fact, I don’t think Adventure Time was
even created when you were a kid… I am a timeless being who sees life instantaneously,
and jumps between time streams in my quest to destroy the multiverse. Um… Crash? Nah I’m just messing with you, I just watch
A LOT of cartoons. It’s surprisingly easy to do when you’re
unemployed and living as a freeloader in your friend’s house. And on that depressing note, on with the show. Number 1: The Powerpuff Girls was created with the idea
of juxtaposing cute little girls with scenes of absurd violence, but that’s not the only
extreme that they have. There are actually many sexual references
within the cartoon. Some examples include Miss Bellum’s address
being “69 Yodelina Valley” (a reference to a particular sexual act) and a picture
of a cat licking another cat in Femme Fatale’s apartment
in the episode “Equal Fights” (a reference possibly hinting at her sexuality). Damn Powerpuff Girls, no wonder I’m so messed
up. Don’t blame that solely on The Powerpuff
Girls. There is also an entire episode centred around
sex. “Members Only” sees the girls attempting
to join the “Association of World Super Men.” The main villain of the episode is Mascumex,
a giant who grows larger and harder when hit with symbols of masculinity. The girls defeat him by turning into a giant
flaming cat and rubbing up against him, until he groans and shrinks, becoming flaccid enough
for them to defeat him. Wait that actually happened? I thought it was just an amazing dream I had… Additionally, the title of the episode is
a pun. The plot has nothing to do with the fact that
the Association didn’t want new members, it was that the girls didn’t have “members”
and thus couldn’t join. Number 2: Ed, Edd, n Eddy isn’t a stranger to sexual
humor, either. While Eddy’s love for his “magazines”
is well known throughout the series, it’s in Double Dee’s house that we find this
Easter egg. Double Dee’s parents are always at work,
so they leave their son reminders in the form of sticky notes. In the episode “Eeny Meeny Miney Ed,”
we see one of the notes in his bathroom actually says “Don’t touch yourself.” How do you think those sticky notes got so
sticky in the first place? Number 3: Many cartoons that have aired on cartoon network
have had crossovers between themselves and other cartoons on the channel. Dexter’s Lab crossed over with Blue Falcon
and Dino Mutt, Johnny Bravo met the Scooby Doo gang, and then there is The Grim Adventures
of the KND, a half hour special created to cross over The Grim Adventures of Billy and
Mandy, and Codename: Kids Next Door. I believe the subtitle was “The crossover
literally nobody asked for.” While this special is chock full of references
to the two series, it is also the home of multiple cameos. The first, and most obvious is when Billy
calls the Eds from Ed, Edd, n Eddy for help, but many more Cartoon Network Shows are referenced
throughout. Most prominently is when the Delightful Reaper
is defeated and all the characters it had absorbed into its being shoot out of it. We can see many characters from different
series, such as The Power Puff Girls and Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends. Number 4: Craig McCracken appears to be a big fan of
The Big Lebowski, as characters and lines appear in various works of his. One of the biggest ones, however, happens
in Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends. In the episode “The Big Lablooski,” Walter,
Donny, and the Dude can be seen purchasing bowling shoes at the bowling alley. Wow, what blatant shoe horning of a beloved
character into a cartoon. It’s shameful, honestly. Deplorable and disgusting. How can these networks stand for such shameless
pandering? Hey, can you guys keep it down over there? Number 5: In the final episode of Teen Titans (titled
“Things Change”), Beast Boy confronts a girl who looks remarkably like Terra in
a high school. In the scene where this happens, there is
a sign that reads “Vote for Pedro.” This is a reference to the campaign slogan
for the character with the same name in the movie Napoleon Dynamite. Ohhhh I thought it said “Vote for Pedo”. Well… too late now… Number 6: Teen Titans Go! Loves to make references to the greater DC
universe. In “Sidekick,” Robin and the Titans are
seen in front of Batman’s Trophy Wall. Among the various references to Batman rogues,
such as The Ventriloquist, The Riddler, and Hush, is a shelf dedicated to Robin. Two of the items on this shelf are a crowbar
and an urn labelled “Robin II.” This
is a reference to “A Death in the Family,” a storyline in the comics where the Joker
beats Jason Todd, the second Robin, to death with a crowbar. JEEZ can they even put that in a kid’s show?! I mean the implications of that are uh…
pretty bad, right? Crash have you even been listening to this
list? They can put whatever they want in wherever
they want even without consent as long as they do it subtly enough. Number 7: Adventure Time creators have an inside joke
that they’ve put into their series on multiple occassions. Based on character designer Phil Rynda, the
Phil Face makes its appearance throughout the series. Prominently, it shows up in “It Came from
the Nightosphere,” where Finn the Human draws it as a rune on the wall in order to
transport himself to the titular dimension. Hehehe… “titular”. Number 8: In the Steven Universe episode “Steven the
Sword Fighter,” Steven sets up a few toys on a windowsill. These toys resemble Pikachu, Gitaroo Man,
and most weirdly the “Sanic the Hedgehog” meme. Memes in our cartoons now as well? They’re taking over Culture… THEY’RE TAKING OVER!!! Number 9: Sonic Boom is no stranger to referencing the
Sonic the Hedgehog franchise as a whole, but “The Biggest Fan” introduces a character
named Mark the Tapir. Designed to parody obsessive fans in general,
the character has a lot of odd similarities to one Christine Weston Chandler, or CWC for
short, the creator of the webcomic Sonichu. Mark dresses up in a long sleeved shirt, emblazoned
with a Sonic symbol, and broken, oversized glasses. CWC is known for the shirts she wears and
iconic Sonichu medallion, but sometimes also wears overly large and broken glasses. Mark presents Sonic with an unfinished portrait
where Sonic’s arms are flesh coloured, while CWC
is known for complaining about Sonic having blue arms in the series. Finally, when Mark orders fast food, he has
an orange soda. Fitting, since CWC used Orange Fanta in one
of his more infamous videos. While the creators have said that the character
is mostly based on fans in general, and not on anyone specific, the similarities are uncanny. Wow what a dumb name hahahahahaha. Haha yeah, I mean I guess “Sonichu” is
kind of dumb. I meant “Mark” not “Sonichu”. What a loser. Number 10: In Chowder, there is a quick cameo appearance
by two men who look remarkably similar to Mario and Luigi from the Super Mario Bros
series of video games, when Chowder takes Mr. Fugu to a restaurant in the episode “Chowder
and Mr. Fugu.” And where’s their Nintendo copyright strike?! Corrupt, every single one of them is corrupt. Number 11: Fred Flintstone has a lot of cameos, both
as himself, and as a background character, in many Cartoon Network Shows. He shows up, wearing glasses, in the Dexter’s
Laboratory episode “Action Beard” alongside George Jetson. He and Barney Rubble are criminals in the
Powerpuff Girls episode “Hot Air Buffoon,” and he’s a major character in the Grim Adventures
of Billy and Mandy episode “Modern Primitives.” Fred Flintstone really is the most iconic
cartoon character in the world. I stick by what I said. Stubborn as always. Number 12: The Amazing World of Gumball episode titled
“The Copycats” is about the cast of the show trying to rid themselves of an eerily
similar family who copies everything the Wattersons do and uploads them to the Internet as a television
show. This copycat family is based off of the Chinese
series of commercials called Miracle Star, which copied the animation style and scenes
from Gumball for their own production. See now this is how plagiarism should be handled. Or you should be given a good old fashioned
spanking ….mmm yeah… Old fashioned… Number 13: In Courage the Cowardly Dog, there exists
a mascot character known as Dilly. He appears on various PSA signs throughout
the series, in which he tells people to wash their hands and not to smoke. This character is none other than series creator
John R. Dilworth. More shameless self-promotion, where do these
guys get off?! Uh wait… I didn’t mean it like that… for once. Speaking of shameless self-promotion, CHECK
OUT THE NEW AND IMPROVED CULTURECRASH PATREON PAGE WHERE YOU CAN RECEIVE AWESOME REWARDS
FOR YOUR SUPPORT Number 14: Regular Show is a series that is dripping
with references to 80s culture. One in particular is the antagonist of the
episode “Fortune Cookie.” Benson loses a card game against an old man,
who turns out to be a warlock. This warlock bears a striking resemblance
to Big Trouble in Little China villain Lo Pan. He is even voiced by the same actor, James
Hong. That’s one heck of a cameo. Not as good as a theodd1sout cameo but still…
pretty good. Number 15: Ben 10 includes characters from other shows
that have appeared on Cartoon Network as cameos. One of these comes from the episode “Merry
Christmas,” in which the character “Mr. Jingles” is seen with three children. These children have a striking resemblance
to Konohamaru Sarutobi, Moegi, and Udon from the anime series Naruto. There is also a recurring character in the
series in an alien named “Billy”, who not only has a design based on the character
from The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, but also shares his voice actor, Richard Horvitz. He appears in both the original and Ben 10
Omniverse series. Finally, the episode titled “Store 23”
contains a scene in which a cow and a chicken alien leave the Mr. Smoothy’s store that
Ben visits. These characters are voiced by Charlie Adler,
reprising his roles from Cow and Chicken. Well isn’t that just a thing that things
the thing. Truly, absolutely, thing. You’ve stopped listening to me again, haven’t
you? That’s right Culture, getting your pets
spayed and neutered is the most important way you can look after your neighbourhood. See you next week!
