Major characters

Minor characters


  • Maria Bamford (Arrested Development) guest stars as the President
  • Worlds seen/visited: Giant Monster World.
  • This episode is a homage to giant monster franchises.
  • Penn is an allusion to Godzilla, Sashi is an allusion to Mothra and Megaguirus, and Boone is possibly alluding to King Kong.
  • The part time-heros are giant monsters, just like Rippen and Larry are giant babies in "Baby-Pocalypse".
  • When Penn thinks that he is a lizard, he asks if his job is selling car insurance, an obvious reference to the Gecko mascot featured in numerous Geico commercials.
  • The Foxtel TV guide mistakenly called this episode "4 Big Problems".
