  • Despite the page of Trouble #2 he was reading never actually saying it, Linkara infers that the "Florida theme park" that the character named Ben says he wants to work at is Disney World. Said comic pretty much proves him right on the same page with the fact that the character being spoken to replies by saying she always fantasized about being with a man in a mouse suit.

  • One video argues that Pinocchio makes no sense for four reasons: 1) Pinocchio's mission to be a real boy is absurdly impossible; 2) Geppetto is not really prepared to raise this kid; 3) Geppetto is a pedophile for having a puppet-cum-miracle-son and so many cuckoo clocks; and 4) Pleasure Island is not really profitable.
    • There is also a "lightning round" which denounces the film further. Among other things, Jiminy Cricket considers telling Geppetto that Pinocchio is going off to Stromboli's theater rather than school but thinks better of it for fear of snitching, Lampwick's donkey fate being proof of Pinocchio's not being entirely brave or unselfish as he abandons Pleasure Island himself, and Pinocchio ties his donkey tail to a rock and then jumps into the water with it.

  • The Critic did a series of vlogs in which he and his brother Rob review episodes of Gravity Falls.
  • At least two "NostalgiaWeen" video openings are Disney-based. First, the 2013 video parodies the holiday forest scene from The Nightmare Before Christmas, with the Critic as Jack Skellington. Second, the 2016 video parodies the title sequence from Gravity Falls.
  • One of the Critic's very first reviews was of Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue. He insists that, ironically, many of the cartoon characters featured in this anti-drug special were on drugs themselves long before the special came out, Winnie the Pooh in particular always being "happy as h**l".

  • In his review of Batman and Robin, the Critic calls out Mr. Freeze's hideout for being themed to a neon-lit ice cream puff, which he compares to Walt Disney trying to hide out in Disneyland.

  • In his review of the 1998 version of Godzilla, the Critic mistakenly calls Matthew Broderick's character "Mr. Taconovahumpashirerinkydinkyhamstermasterpollywollywannabingbangsupercalifragilisticknickknackpaddywackygivethedogabananafannafofrescahickorydickoryhockitypockitywockitywackangelinafrancesca the Third."
  • In his "Top 12 Greatest Christmas Specials" video, the Critic ranks The Little Matchgirl at #10 (during which he also shows clips of The Little Mermaid, since it was included as a bonus on the Platinum Edition DVD of that movie, because both stories were written by Hans Christian Andersen) and The Small One at #7. He also ranks A Christmas Carol at #2, for which he shows clips of the numerous film versions of the story, including Mickey's Christmas Carol (which he likes a lot) and The Muppet Christmas Carol. During this whole segment, "Oh, What a Merry Christmas Day" from the former version plays in the background.
  • In response to a random musical sequence in FernGully: The Last Rainforest, the Critic compares the sequence to, among other movies, "Pink Elephants on Parade" from Dumbo.

  • In the Critic's review of The Pagemaster, as the ground shakes, resulting in a dragon waking up, Richard Tyler (played by Macaulay Culkin) thinks it's an earthquake and exclaims, "EARTHQUAKE!", before briefly cutting to Nick Szalinski exclaiming, "No, worse – LAWNMOWER!"

    • The Critic shows disbelief for the Honey Nut Cheerios bee being named Buzzbee, and says that they might as well have changed Mickey Mouse's name to Squeak Mouse.
    • The Critic mentions that The Flintstones characters, mascots of Pebbles cereals, did not make the list because "it's like putting Jack Sparrow on the list because of the Pirates of the Caribbean cereal." As he says this, he shows an image of the cereal in question.
  • In his review of Last Action Hero, the Critic wonders if the magic ticket that Nick gives to Danny is "made out of Tinker Bell blood."
  • In his "Old vs. New: Willy Wonka" video, when the Critic decides that the only catchy song in the newer film was the ear-bleedingly annoying puppet song, he demands that they play something else. Immediately, it switches to "It's a Small World", much to the Critic's horror. At the end, when he wants to close out the video with "Pure Imagination" from the original film, he instead gets various other songs, including not just the puppet song and "It's a Small World", but also the DuckTales theme.
  • In his review of the "Star Wars Holiday Special", the Critic thinks Harvey Korman's character looks partially like Cinderella's stepmother. He later says, in imitation of Leia, "Good thing I'm the leader of a club that's made for you and me."

    • The character Kayley is compared to Belle.
    • During the knights' roll call, Critic inserts roll calls from other TV shows, including The Mickey Mouse Club.
    • When Kayley hugs her horse and a song starts playing, Critic calls the horse's man a jukebox and repeatedly plays a clip of Kayley hugging her horse and playing different music, one of which is the DuckTales theme.
    • The Critic's "JUST...EXPLAIN!" after losing his temper is a reference to King Leonidas' line: "STOP...THAT...BALL!" from Bedknobs and Broomsticks.
    • At the end, Critic asks Mary Poppins what is the explanation of the movie. When she responds "I never explain anything", Critic shoots her out in frustration. Horrified at what he's done, he freaks out and accidentally shoots Bert too. Critic tries to run away to stop himself, but accidentally shoots Mickey Mouse.
  • In his Flubber review, he notes that Weebo is voiced by Jodi Benson. Later, when Weebo is downloading her human female projection, a snippet of "Part of Your World" plays.
  • In his "Old vs. New: King Kong" video, the Critic calls out the newer film for its ice-skating scene, which he considers weird and unnecessary, and remarks, "I keep expecting Mickey Mouse to pop up at any moment!" As this happens, an image of Mickey is shown skating past them.
  • In the Critic's review of A Troll In Central Park, he makes the following Disney references:
    • He describes Stanley the Troll as what would happen if "Bilbo Baggins just ate the Lucky Charms leprechaun and got s**t out of Dopey's anus."

Later, when the puppies lose their ability to communicate with humans and the mother dog gets captured, the puppies "rip off 101 Dalmatians," in the Critic's words, by barking and howling to other dogs for information on her whereabouts, a la the Twilight Bark.
  • During his review of Stephen King's IT, footage of Oogie Boogie's shadow on the moon appears over Pennywise's face.
  • In the Leprechaun review, the scene of the Leprechaun killing a store owner is accompanied by a snippet of "Hop on Your Pogo Stick".
  • In his first review of "Nostalgic Commercials", one commercial is for the game Crossfire, which the Critic thinks looks like the world of TRON if it were controlled by Lucas (from The Wizard). At the end, the Critic laments himself for becoming a loser (after taking a lot of flack for his review of My Pet Monster), which soon becomes a parody of "Poor Jack" from The Nightmare Before Christmas, in which he hopes to set things right by reviewing movies again. A snippet from this film of Santa being tortured is also shown.
  • A subsequent review of old TV commercials features two Disney ones:
    • The first commercial is a TV spot for the 1986 reissue of Song of the South. The Critic states that only the animated scenes are shown in this ad, even though most of the movie is actually live-action and "dealing with slow-moving racial relations." At the end of this ad, the Critic warns that the film is one that Disney will soon be ashamed of, concluding that "it may or may not be racially insensitive, honestly it's sort of hard to tell, but Disney's not gonna take that chance anyway. See the film that millions of people around the world are calling... 'OKAY!'"
    • The second commercial is about plush toys of The Wuzzles, in which kids cuddle them and sing songs of them. The Critic's objection is that one lyric drives him crazy: while he is fine with the kids who are able to find rhymes for Hoppopotamus ("I got a Wuzzle/I'm gonna cuddle,/Cuddly as can be,/'Cause she is part hippo/And part bunny!") and Bumblelion ("I got a Wuzzle/I'm gonna snuggle,/Cute as he can be,/'Cause he is part lion/And part bumblebee!"), he chastises the kids for their inability to find a real rhyme for Eleroo, which goes "I got a Wuzzle/I'm gonna snuggle,/Funny, yes sirree,/'Cause he is part elephant/And part kangaree! Oh, roo!" He complains that "roo" has got to be one of the easiest words to rhyme and, to prove it, sings, "I got a Wuzzle/I'm gonna snuggle,/So much he can do."
  • In his review of The Thief and the Cobbler, the Critic jokes about the movie's opening monologue about wishing upon a star, saying "Y'hear that, Disney! We sorta beat you to it!" He later mentions how the Miramax cut of the film borrows quite a bit of elements from Aladdin. At the end of his review, after the Critic gets blown up by the time bomb that Vincent Price set up in his house, Price is heard saying, "Ooooh, I love it when I'm nasty!"
  • In his review of Rover Dangerfield, he addresses Dana Hill as "the voice that you may have recognize as Max from Goof Troop".
  • In his review of Care Bears II: A New Generation, the Critic refers Darkheart turning into a real boy a mix between Satan and Pinocchio.
  • In his review of Baby Geniuses, the Critic questions lasers being put on a children's mascot, adding, "Don't let them work at Disney World, they'll give Mickey Mouse a[n] Uzi!"
  • Several references appear in the review for The Magic Voyage:
    • The Critic explains that this movie about Christopher Columbus' discovery of America was made by Germans, which he negatively compares to a movie about Russia made by Americans (referring to Don Bluth's Anastasia) and then shows a poster for Pocahontas while exclaiming, "We can't even get our own history right!"
    • During the "constant noise" scene, the Critic throws in clips from other films just to make it even noisier, including a shot of the March Hare from Alice in Wonderland shouting, "MAD WATCH! MAD WATCH! MAD WATCH!"
    • The Critic thinks that the king's adviser looks partially like Jafar.
    • The Critic thinks Columbus' dream sequence is so insanely bizarre that he compares it to the "Pink Elephants on Parade" scene from Dumbo, and features a clip of that scene.

  • Several Disney references pop up in the Critic's review of Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland:
    • At the start, as Nemo's bed flies through the air above the neighborhood, "The Age of Not Believing" plays briefly.
    • In response to Nemo saying, "Wow-wee!" instead of just "Wow!", the Critic says in a snarky tone, "A little bit more wonderment, and we might get an entire 'Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah!' out of him!"
    • When Nemo calls out, "Off to Nightmare Castle we go!" and the bed takes his group there, the Critic chimes in by holding up his fist in a superhero pose and saying, "To incomprehensibility and beyond!"
    • As the group approaches Nightmare Castle, all red and dark, "Be Prepared" is heard playing in the background.
    • The Critic thinks that the Nightmare King looks partially like Chernabog.
    • At the very end, the Critic realizes that he went the entire review without making any Finding Nemo jokes.
  • In the Critic's review of the 1998 Avengers movie (no relation to the Marvel Avengers, however), he references a sudden snowstorm as caused by "Mrs. Peel in her Queen of Narnia cosplay." Also, at the part where everyone is inexplicably disguised as teddy bears, the Critic is forced to pick out which bear-themed joke to go with about this scene, one of them based on The Country Bears. In the same scene, when the Avengers come across the agents disguised as bears, the Critic exclaims on their behalf, "I must alert Andy Panda and Winnie the Pooh immediately!" Finally, as one disguised agent attacks Mrs. Peel by jumping on her, the theme from Adventures of the Gummi Bears plays briefly.
  • In the review of James and the Giant Peach, Critic complains about the death of James' parents by rewriting a scene from The Lion King where Mufasa gets eaten by a rhino. Also, when he notes the similarities of the skeletons to Jack Skellington, Critic imitates Jack asking Centipede about Christmas Land, and then "Jack's Lament" plays when the pirate skeleton's head falls off.

  • In his review of Felix the Cat: The Movie, the Critic refers to Pim as "Stinky Pete, who I guess is the good guy now".
  • In his review of the Robin Williams movie Patch Adams, the Critic remarks how Patch's seeing what no one else chooses to see is the most original message in a Williams movie since other such movies as Good Morning, Vietnam, Dead Poets Society, Being Human, Flubber and Bicentennial Man, but that this movie will put a different spin on it. Later, while talking about how female characters were once written, he shows a shot of Jenny Blake from The Rocketeer.
  • In the Critic's review of the opening episodes of the Transformers cartoon, during the skit where Soundwave pitches his own romantic comedy, he mentions that "Disney has shown interest."
  • In his review of A Simple Wish, the Critic mocks a bad CGI frog, claiming that Prince Naveen was more three-dimensional than this. He also mocks the antagonist's left-field dialog, by imitating Gargamel: "I will destroy the Smurfs with my spells! By the way, did you know the guy who did the candle in Beauty and the Beast was also in Law and Order?"
  • In the Critic's review of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, there is played a snippet of "Heigh Ho" during the scene of slave children mining for magic stones. Also, during the fight between Indiana Jones and a big Thugee, the Critic remarks about how the fight choreography alternates between "action-packed and Goofy cartoon". As the Thugee gets pulled under a rock crusher at the end of the conveyor belt, the scream he does is the Goofy holler.
  • During his review of Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2, Critic criticized the film's villain by saying that "Donald Duck was a better Nazi than you" while showing a clip from Der Fuehrer's Face.
  • In his review of Scooby-Doo, the Critic compares Scrappy-Doo's monstrous form to Pumbaa and does an imitation of him telling Timon he's going to eat his soul.

  • In his review of Catwoman, the Critic calls Sharon Stone's character "Cruella Jane Lynch".
  • At the beginning of the video for his review of The Cat in the Hat, the Critic has to babysit Satan's daughter Evilina while Satan finalizes a deal with Disney about Planes, which at that time was about to be released. As they watch The Cat in the Hat, the Critic calls out the film adaptation's forced morals and confused messages to suit a longer running time, arguing that Mary Poppins maintained a consistent message throughout with a long running time.
  • A clip of Tron: Legacy is shown at the start of the Critic's video about when it's fine to nitpick. He also questions the climax of Star Wars, and how a tiny torpedo fired into a tiny hole can somehow blow up the Death Star.
  • In two separate editorials on Tom and Jerry cartoons (including one where it is speculated that the cat and mouse had committed suicide), the Critic talks about physical, bodily harm done to cartoon characters as a staple of classic cartoons, including Disney cartoons, and features a clip from Up a Tree to illustrate his point.
  • In his editorial "Should We Scare the S#*% Out of Kids?", the Critic shows clips of movies, including Disney movies, to explain why so many movies for kids have such scary content in them, that there is hopefully a logical explanation besides just scariness for its own sake. Among other things, he shows footage of the scary forest from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Lampwick's transformation into a donkey from Pinocchio, The Headless Horseman from The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad, and the discovery of Judge Doom's true identity from Who Framed Roger Rabbit. He also adds that A Christmas Carol has so much scary content (compared to the original story, which tries to balance it out with scenes of the joyful spirit of humanity) that anything good is likely glanced over.
  • In his review of the Christmas special The Christmas Tree, he criticizes the mayor for giving out money bags instead of checks and a picture of Scrooge McDuck holding money bags appears in the corner of the screen.

  • The Critic responds to the many fan-made perversions of "Let It Go" by lampooning the song with his costar Tamara Chambers, who is dressed as Elsa, to make sense of how that song could be so popular that it has become "everybody's crystal meth". He says that the song "is like 'Hakuna Matata', but a million-bajillion times worse!" At the end, Tamara asks the Critic if he wants to build a snowman. His response is less than enthusiastic.
  • Several references appear in the Foodfight! review:
    • At the beginning, one of the scientists is calculating saying that only a few online critics reviewed the movie, saying its potential can be "milked" like a lactating Clarabelle Cow.
    • The Critic mentions that the film was supposed to be like "the Wreck-It Ralph of food icons."
    • When the Critic notices a character is called Fatcat Burglar, he shows a picture of Fat Cat and says that Disney needs to sue.
    • The Critic takes a swipe at the as-yet-unreleased Cars 3 while yelling about this movie, "This went from 'Submitting a stick to an art museum' embarrassing to '[Pooping] your pants in front of Pixar and calling it your magnum opus' embarrassing! Though we'll see how that turns out."
    • When a character who sounds like Tim Curry (but was actually voiced by Jeff Bennett) shows up, the Critic imitates Curry saying that he was trying to see if he could do anything worse than saying "Ducks rock."
    • Appalled by a particularly bad piece of animation, the Critic sarcastically comments that the animators must have asked Pixar for help on this animation. Pixar did help, he says, but they sent the bad animation in question as a joke, along with a note from John Lasseter to "go f**k yourselves," but the director used the animation anyway because he was too lazy.
  • In the Critic's review of The Lorax, he blames the movie's opening number for the fact that it made him sick of opening numbers like "Life's a Happy Song" from The Muppets, and later jokes about the song "Let It Grow" sounding a lot like "Let It Go". He also describes the movie's song as being like "the top 10 on Radio Disney."
  • The Critic ranks the trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End at #11 on his "Top 11 Trailers".
  • In the Small Soldiers review, the Critic criticizes the film for having elements ripped off from Toy Story.
  • During the Critic's review of the top 11 Avatar episodes, featuring Dante Basco in character as Prince Zuko, Tamara tries to dress up as an Avatar character to distract Basco, but constantly gets it wrong by dressing up as other characters in films and TV shows that Basco appeared in, at one point dressing up as Rose from American Dragon: Jake Long. At the end, she finally dresses up as Avatar character Toph Beifong, only to notice that by now Basco has dressed up as Jake Long instead, much to her irritation.
  • Critic references Emilio Estevez's role as Gordon Bombay in The Mighty Ducks in his review of Maximum Overdrive when he says, "Though, if somewhere in this movie, AC/DC decides to coach a hockey team, I wouldn't be against it."
  • The Critic starts off his review of Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow by praising the Disney version of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and comparing both films.
  • In the opening to the Critic's "Rise of the Commercials" video, there are snippets of commercials for an Ariel doll and the Castle of Illusion game.
  • A few Disney references pop up in the Critic's review of Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer:

    • He speculates that OwnAll Corp. is a division of Google and Disney.
    • He refers to Grandpa Spankenheimer as "Grandpa Geppetto".
    • During his song about how much he loves Christmas, the Critic sings about decorating his house with "Disney trademarked intellectual property". As part of this, he shows Malcolm and Tamara a trademark document, which says "THE MOUSE OWNS CHRISTMAS", while what looks like Mickey Mouse and a Disney Princess appear behind him.
  • The Critic includes Mickey's Christmas Carol in his list of overlooked Christmas specials.
  • As he starts his review of Care Bears Nutcracker, the Critic wonders about No Heart, who appears in the title sequence, but not the special itself (it was an hour-long special episode of the show), "Did the wizard from Fantasia become a Klansman?"
  • At the start of his review for the chick flick Mamma Mia, the Critic admits that some of the best and most successful movies are chick flicks, adding that one could argue that Frozen, the highest grossing animated film at the moment, is a chick flick. Later, as Meryl Streep sings "Money, Money, Money", the Critic says, "Streep is still nine voice lessons away from her Into the Woods quality voice, so... just try to enjoy her awkward transition period."
  • In his editorial on how hype can kill a good film, the Critic cites Frozen as a prime example of over-hype (particularly through overabundance of merchandise) and subsequent backlash. He also cites The Lion King as another example of this kind from years ago, but which has become a legitimate classic.
  • The Critic did a sketch video in which he exposes a fake plot to Frozen 2.
  • In the Critic's review of the TV show Small Wonder, he describes one character, Harriet, as an older version of Pistol Pete.

Ozzy confronts the Emotions in the Critic's mind.

  • During the Critic's review of Osmosis Jones, he does a skit that takes place inside his mind, wherein Ozzy blames the Emotions from Inside Out for taking elements from his own film. At one point, Bambi's mother is on trial for giving the birth of life and is immediately executed, after which Walt Disney appears from behind the presiding judge to say, "Good!", in imitation of Palpatine.
  • In his review of Garfield: The Movie, the Critic says that like Mickey Mouse, Garfield is timeless, even when he is not funny, but that the movie version does not reflect that at all. Also, one of the Critic's many insults about Garfield is "Tigger's colon".
  • In the Critic's clipless review of Pixels, the character of Ludlow is represented as a caricature based on Olaf, due to both characters being played by Josh Gad.
  • In his editorial on when jokes go too far, the Critic brings up Meryl Streep and her accusation that Walt Disney was sexist and anti-Semitic, even though there was never any evidence to prove such accusations.
  • In the beginning of his video "Why Do We Holiday Too Early?", the Critic complains that Thanksgiving has become "a stepchild that nobody wants to pay attention to, even though they're family." He then shows an image of Cinderella with a turkey head while saying, "Don't worry, Thanksgiving, one day your fairy god-turkey will come and make you so popular that we'll start putting out Thanksgiving decorations in September."
  • In his "Conquest of the Commercials" video, the Critic shows a commercial for Power Rangers gloves, which he describes as "the most tediously-advertised hand garments until Frozen." As he says this, gloves like the kind that Elsa wears are briefly shown. He is actually more interested in the Power Rangers room defender that came with the glove. After questioning its effect on keeping people away, he says he doesn't mind these things existing "just as long as they don't play 'Let It Go'."
  • Several references pop up in the video for Labyrinth:
    • It opens with a mock commercial for a collection of movies from the 1980s ostensibly for kids, yet full of scary imagery (used to scare life lessons into children). Such movies include Return to Oz, Something Wicked This Way Comes, and Who Framed Roger Rabbit, as shown in stills and posters (and also as heard in offscreen audio). The announcer for the ad says these films are rated PG, at a time when the rating meant something, whereas today, PG just means "practically G", and shows posters of films that carry such a rating, including Frozen and Inside Out.
    • When Jareth arrives to take Toby away and provides Sarah with a gift that turns into a snake and then an owl, the Critic exclaims, "I don't think I like this new version of Mary Poppins."
    • The Critic describes Jareth as "a male Cruella De Vil".
  • A few references pop up in the Critic's review of Cats & Dogs:
    • The Critic notes that the entrance to Jeff Goldblum's laboratory has a steel door on it that is so cartoonishly huge that he compares it to the entrance to Scrooge McDuck's money bin (Goldblum is heard singing the DuckTales theme).
    • The Critic receives a penalty for doing a cheap joke (namely, making fun of Alec Baldwin voicing a character here) and must pay for his actions by actually complimenting the film he is reviewing. He ends up saying, "At least it's not Santa Paws...?", which is approved, allowing the review to continue.
    • As the stereotypical ninja cats invade, the Critic sings, "We are racist-ese, if you prease...".
    • In the scene where the family is being held hostage and tries to remain calm, Alexander Pollock's character insists he is not afraid, to which the Critic thinks he really should be afraid: "The kid is like Pinocchio; one day he'll be a real boy, but not in this scene."
  • In his review of The Adventures of Pluto Nash, the Critic questions the seriousness of the story when everyone is saying, "Pluto". Cue a montage of scenes from the movie, in which various characters say Pluto's name, followed by Mickey Mouse also calling out to Pluto, as seen in Pluto and the Armadillo.
  • In his editorial on when critics are wrong, the Critic shows clips of Disney films as proof of the divide between critics and regular audiences:
    • Clips of Hercules and The Lone Ranger are shown during a montage of movie characters saying the cliched line "Let her go!"
    • While talking about movies intended for mass audiences and not critics, the Critic shows a collage of posters for movies in this category, which include Maleficent and Muppets Most Wanted.
    • The Critic admits that he can't understand the critical success and popularity of the remake of The Jungle Book.
  • A few references pop up in the Critic's editorial on the sensitive subject of white washing:
    • One reason for the Critic's editorial in the first place is to mention that one character in the then-upcoming Doctor Strange, known as the Ancient One, was changed to a Celtic female (played by Tilda Swinton) from a Tibetan male, as per the original comics. This change was to appease China, which is a great market for Marvel films and which is not on good terms with Tibet.
    • He mentions that many of the highest-grossing movies and franchises don't have big names in the lead role, including Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
    • He points out that Aladdin and Jasmine are voiced by white people, and that Belle, voiced by Paige O'Hara, is not French.
    • He shows a collage of characters voiced by Tara Strong, who is an example of an adult voice actor voicing child characters. One character in the collage is Angel.
  • In his review of The Grinch Grinches The Cat in the Hat, the Critic goes into detail on the very trippy scene that the Grinch creates to torment the Cat, saying that he would "endorse getting a minor drunk if it led to another Pink Elephants scene".
  • In his review of Scooby-Doo 2, as the Black Knight comes alive and tries to attack the gang, the Critic exclaims, "The Star of Astoroth compels you!" Later, the Critic, referencing the fact that Velma is played by Linda Cardellini, thinks that she would have a better career at Disney than at Warner Bros., showing shots of Cardellini's characters in Avengers: Age of Ultron and Gravity Falls, respectively.
  • In his review of the live-action Teddy Ruxpin special, at the part with the purple monster, who thinks how bad it is that a princess was kidnapped, the Critic mocks the monster's gravelly voice by saying, in imitation of Pumbaa (whom the monster sounds somewhat like), "Hey, Timon! We're on another royal forced plotline again!"
  • In his editorial on Looney Tunes movies, the Critic compares Disney cartoons to classical music and Looney Tunes cartoons to jazz. He also tries to compare Looney Tunes to Greek mythology, but admits that he doesn't know much about the latter, beyond Hercules. Finally, he compares Space Jam to Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
  • In his editorial on whether or not the PG rating means anything anymore, the Critic questions the validity of several Disney and Pixar movies being rated PG, going over a history of the rating that includes how the introduction of the PG rating, and the later introduction of the PG-13 rating, affected several Disney movies. He also mentions that classic Disney films that are G-rated have decidedly non-G-rated content, such as the scary forest in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, family deaths in Bambi and The Lion King, and the "Hellfire" number in The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
  • In his review of The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle, the Critic criticizes Rocky's pessimistic attitude by saying that even Eeyore would be sick of Rocky's attitude, which cuts to Eeyore making a dismissive comment towards Rocky. When the movie has Rocky and Bullwinkle enter the human world with a machine that selects the genre of the movie and shoots a beam of green light, Critic comments that it's too meta, which then cuts to Kermit the Frog talking to the audience and saying "You know I'm just a puppet, right?", complete with showing the Muppeteer controlling Kermit.
  • A few Disney references appear in the Critic's review of Dreamcatcher:
    • The Critic notes that Beaver likes saying catchphrases, and he mocks it by having him say, "Ducktales, Woo-hoo!".
    • The Critic criticizes the movie for spending too much time on Coronel Curtis despite there being no real payoff to it, equating it to having Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs spends several minutes on the politics behind the Evil Queen, since she dies before we can learn how she actually runs the kingdom.
    • The Critic takes note that Lawrence Kasdan, the writer of this movie, also wrote The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, and as such, he quips that he expects for R2-D2 to show up in the movie.
  • In his review of Freddy vs. Jason, Critic uses his fourth-wall breaking powers to create similar matchups. One of them is Darth Vader vs. Geordi LaForge (of Star Trek fame); another is Samara Morgan vs. Kayako Saeki, which results in Samara summoning Stitch to attack Kayako, something that is (as Critic himself points out) a reference to Daveigh Chase having played both Samara and Lilo Pelekai.  During the review, he cites Captain America: Civil War as an example of a "crossover matchup" movie. He also mocks the perceived poor quality of Kingdom Hearts Re:coded by calling it "one of the greatest horror crossovers of all time". And when he notices that Will Rollins is played by Jason Ritter (who also played Dipper Pines), he has Will say: "Grunkle Stan is on a killing spree!"
  • In the review of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, Critic asks the Honest Trailers Guy to do impressions to lampshade how silly Krang sounds. One of Honest Trailer Guy's impressions is an impression of Christopher Walken, and while doing this impression he sings the first opening bar of the chorus of "I Wanna Be Like You". Critic has Bebop say, in an impression of Ernie Sabella's Pumbaa voice, "Hey, Timon, gotta make our obligatory c**k joke!". Then, when Bebop does indeed make said joke, Andre quips, "Pumbaa, not in front of the kids!" Andre then mockingly calls Bebop and Rocksteady, "the cast of The Jungle Book". Later, when Krang opens an interdimensional portal, Critic shows a picture of the interdimensional portal from The Avengers.
  • In the Critic's "Battle of the Commercials" video, one of the featured commercials is for My Interactive Pooh. Also, during the Eggo Waffles commercial, there is a skit where Malcolm tries to get the waffle using black arts magic. As part of this, he chants, "Asante sana, squash banana...".
  • In the Critic's review of Inspector Gadget Saves Christmas, the alien woman at the beginning looks like a Kree. During the review itself, he references the live-action version of Inspector Gadget by Disney, as well as Ernest Saves Christmas, Mater Saves Christmas, and the Santa Clause trilogy.
  • The Critic ranks Toy Story 2 at #8 on his list of the "Top 11 Best Movie Sequels".
  • In his review of Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel, Critic mentions Flynn Rider as a role that Zachary Levi is known for. Later, when showing examples of male characters with female counterparts, he shows Scooter and Skeeter and Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse. Later, when Chester A. Bum and Doe complain about not having backstories, Critic points out that Baze Malbus and Chirrut Imwe are popular characters despite not having any backstory.
  • The Critic gives an honorable mention to the Pirates of the Caribbean sequels in his list of the "Top 11 Worst Movie Sequels", criticizing them for being long and complicated and trying to be more like Lawrence of Arabia than Pirates.
  • In his review of The Smurfs 2, Critic points out that, after Victor Doyle is turned into a duck, a stripe on Victor's beak looks like Hitler's moustache, causing to call Victor's new form a "Hitler duck", and then quips that Der Fuehrer's Face was shown in theaters before the movie. Later, Gargamel coaxes Smurfette into joining by saying "Search your feelings, you know it to be true", which, as expected, causes Darth Vader to appear next to Critic.
  • In his review of Garfield: A Tale of Two Kitties, Critic snarks that the movie is trying to be the next Santa Paws.
  • Several references pop up in the Critic's review of Cool World:
    • He puts Goofy's trademark holler in the scene when Frank Harris' motorcycle crashes.
    • He snarks that Frank was probably wondering if he wondered in a different movie, and that said movie was called Who Plagiarized Roger Rabbit.
    • He quips that Holli Would wanted to ask Jack Deebs about the body proportions of Jessica Rabbit.
    • When the Critic meets Julie Taymor, the video indicates that she directed the Lion King Broadway musical.
    • When Frank warns about having sex with Holli, the Critic brings out the infamous "rule 34" of the internet, and he illustrates his point by showing a drawing of Jake making out with Timon.
    • When Ralph Bakshi describes the concept behind his original script, the video illustrates his point by featuring a picture from Who Framed Roger Rabbit and adding Jason Voorhees' hockey mask to Roger Rabbit's face.
    • When praising the movie's animation, Bakshi cites Disney as one of its influences.
    • At the end of the video, Bakshi exclaims, "To titties and beyond!"
  • In the Critic's review of Balto, the following Disney references are made:
    • He shows his illustrated scale for annoying comedy in animated family films, with Level 2 ("Eye-Twitch Worthy") being accompanied by an image of Olaf and Level 6 ("Burn It and Salt the Ground") being accompanied by an image of Gurgi.
    • He describes the polar bears in the movie as looking like "Moogles if they ate Chien Po".
    • When he sees coffins meant in the case of Rose succumbing to her fatal disease, he quips that one of the coffins is meant for the Little Match Girl.
    • When an evil bear shows up in the movie, the Critic laments that fact, saying that bears ruin animated family films, and cites both Brother Bear and Brave as examples.
    • He questions why the heroic polar bears didn't save Balto from the evil bear, comparing the situation to Pluto being a pet and Goofy not being one despite both being dogs.
    • He has Steele describe himself as "a reverse Cruella De Vil".
  • In his editorial "Should Bad Singers Be Dubbed?", the Critic opens by comparing Emma Watson's singing voice as Belle to Paige O'Hara's, stating that Watson is inferior to O'Hara in this regard. Also, he notes how Simba as voiced by Jonathan Taylor Thomas sounds nothing like how he is when singing, yet such is not nearly the case when Simba is voiced by Matthew Broderick as an adult. The Critic also thinks that Dwayne Johnson does a decent job singing when he voiced Maui.

One Minute Melee

  • In "Link vs. Sora", Sora appears in the episode as the main combatant as well as Goofy and Donald Duck appear, fighting the Legend of Zelda's Link. Goofy and Donald have no luck whilst Sora defeated Link, thus expelling Dark Link from regular Link. Then the Heartless show up causing Sora, Donald, Goofy, and even Link to fight off the Heartless.

Rebel Taxi


  • One of the main characters, Blake Belladonna, takes inspiration from the fairytale Beauty and the Beast, specifically the Disney adaptation; her last name has "Belle" as its root. When she is first introduced, she is seen reading a book, and she has a candelabra in her possession, referencing Lumière.
  • On the Rooster Teeth website, RWBY's show page has a group shot of Team RWBY. The shirt Weiss is wearing has Beacon Academy in the style of the classic Disney Castle logo.

People can get to work by riding on kangaroos, but they must get a special liscence, which they can only get by spending three years on their "P"-plates, the P standing for platypus. The particular platypus that they use is Perry the Platypus from Phineas and Ferb, but disfigured.

That Guy Riffs

  • In the video about Casper cartoons, Doug imitates a ghost rising out of its grave: "Time for another kegger on Bald Mountain." Later, as a bunch of dogs sniff out Ferdie Fox, Doug imitates the fox from Mary Poppins: "View halloo?" And when Ferdie dies somehow and Casper mourns his loss, because he was his only friend, Doug exclaims, "This is like three Bambi's moms and two Old Yellers combined!"
  • In the video about an educational film from the late 1950s called "The Snob", Doug and Brad both dub in Sarah's dialog as she writes on a piece of paper: "Dear Mr. Disney, I think Cubby may have touched me inappropriately. Please alert the other Mouseketeers. P.S., I think Donald is a Nazi."

  • Buckley did a list of the Ten Most Corrupt Disney Star Skanks, which he describes as random: at #10, Christina Aguilera (for being dirty, wearing caps, and being divorced); at #9, Anneliese van der Pol (for being Dutch, being on That's So Raven, and having to leave a play in San Diego due to artistic differences); at #8, Brenda Song (for never being pregnant); at #7, Demi Lovato (for having mental illness and punching a girl in the face); at #6, Adrienne Bailon (for leaving naked photos of herself); at #5, Lalaine (for being arrested for possession of meth); at #4, Britney Spears; at #3, Miley Cyrus; at #2, Vanessa Hudgens (for her naked photos); and at #1, Lindsay Lohan (she was practically destined for corruption).
