In BFDI and BFDIA, there are several references to real life things and other object shows.

"Blue skidoo, we can too!"



  • In Yeah, Who? I Wanna Know, Book says "Hey! Wait..." three times, and each time she does, the camera closes in on her. This references the Homestar Runner toon "Strongest Man in the World".
  • In Insectophobe's Nightmare 3, Nickel says "Well, I just know I'm going to lose..." which is a reference to Inanimate Insanity where that show's Nickel says "Well, I just know I'm going to win!"
    • Nickel also says "Well, I just know I'm going to win!" on Reveal Novum which is also another reference to Inanimate Insanity.
  • The episode title Zeeky Boogy Doog and Bomby's explosion after it's said in the episode are a reference to The Demented Cartoon Movie, where an explosion happened every time the phrase was said.
  • In BFDIA 5b, Book uses the companion cube from the video game Portal.
  • The character Dora herself is a reference to the TV show, Dora the Explorer, that was highlighted in her elimination in Insectophobe's Nightmare 3.


  • In "Lick Your Way to Freedom", Nickel instructs Woody to dab after believing that the voters were up for elimination.
    • In "Fortunate Ben", Woody and the rest of Beep dabbed to redirect their paper airplane.
  • In "Lick Your Way to Freedom", Nickel calls Woody his "Boyonocerus". It is unknown what the source of the word is but it somewhat sounds like "boi", a meme.
  • In “Today's Very Special Episode”, Four does a dance move nearly identical to the floss, a popular dance move in real life.
  • In "Fortunate Ben", Pen declares that his legal name happens to be Ben, but with the 🅱 emoji, referencing to the meme relating to the emoji.
  • In "Questions Answered", Grassy flew into Donut's hole, the sound made is the Roblox death sound (or more commonly known as an "Oof").
  • In “This Episode Is About Basketball”, Donut grabbed X and puts him on the floor to be host. When he puts X down, the balloon sound from the Microsoft operating system Windows XP is played. The sounds themselves from the operating system is a popular internet meme.
