Episode Summary

Background Information

Production Information

  • In the iTunes release, a wavering line can be seen moving a few times down during the title card, indicating a tracking problem when the video tape was digitized. To see more edits go to the Edits/Censorship



  • When Norbert is freed from being possessed by the Pond Scum, he (presumably) removes the clothes he's wearing. He probably takes off the jeans and boots offscreen. However, when he takes off his leather jacket, he should have to then remove his white T-shirt but he's not wearing it.


  • Star Trek - After the pond scum first possesses Norb before releasing the mad bull, Norb sort of does an impression of Captain Kirk from the 1966–1969 sci-fi TV series, which he sometimes actually does.
  • Stargate SG-1 - After the pond scum possesses Norbert completely, his eyes glow. This may be a reference to the 1997–2007 adventure and military sci-fi TV series an where a person's eyes glow after they are possessed by an evil parasite called a Goa'uld.
  • Alien - When Daggett tries to block Norbert from leaving the kitchen, his mouth opens, tongue comes out, and the pond scum is on it. This is similar to the face-grabbing thing from the 1979 sci-fi horror film.


  • Norbert's walking animation was edited
  • Norbert comes out of the shadows wile on The Complete Series This was changed
