Cultural ReferencesEdit

  • This episode is a parody of the 1984 film Gremlins . The song that plays during the Evil Turtle's babies' rampage on the city also seems to be a parody of the film's theme song, the "Gremlin Rag".
  • The scene where Harold is jogging with headphones unaware of Evil Turtle's babies wreaking havoc behind him is a reference to the Dead Island 2 trailer.
  • Evil Turtle's nest with skinny eggs and kidnapped people wrapped in some kind of mucus in order to feed young turtles resembles Xenomorph's nest from 1986 film Aliens .
  • When News Reporter says that turtles may want to take Elmore citizens' jobs, he is referring to the modern immigration problem.


  • When Gumball's parents are watching the news, Nicole's whiskers are gone.
