Joke References and Explanations

SPOILER WARNING
The following has numerous spoilers for the episode. It is recommended that you watch the episode before reading any further.

Episode Running Gags, Series Running Gags, and Callbacks

  • Thorn hid the covers of his five favorite Chrome albums in the background in chronological release order:
    • Alien Soundtracks is in the blue glass behind Dororo as he suggests letting Kululu go.
    • Half Machine Lip Moves is in a blue circle behind Kululu as he hangs from the ceiling. Half Machine Lip Moves also appeared in Jetters Abridged - Episode 2.
    • Red Exposure is in the building behind everyone as Momoka grabs Kululu. Red Exposure also appeared in Episode 8, making it the first album cover to be reused in SFA.
    • Blood on the Moon is on the wall behind Dororo as he watches his DVD.
    • 3rd from the Sun replaces the galaxy poster as Keroro runs from Fuyuki.
  • The episode continues from Kululu's apparent entrapment through half of Season 1, as well as his exhausted and desparate mood in SFA11. Despite their blatant apathy towards his suffering, (Giroro didn't even notice he was around until the beginning of this episode), the platoon don't want him to leave because he could turn into the Future Kululu seen in SFA10.
  • Keroro apparently grabs Giroro's rear, meaning that he seems to have fully embraced his bisexuality but taken it too far.
  • Pururu thinks Keroro's platoon is addicted to rope, calling back to Tamama inexplicably being tied up in the previous episode.
  • Tamama references Kululu's fixation with lotion. Kululu later remarks that he needs to check his stocks, calling back to his "lotion stocks" from SFA3.
  • When Keroro thinks of "someone who gets ignored a lot", he thinks of Momoka, due to her being the butt of the team's ire through the majority of Season 1.
    • The stealth joke is that the character based around being ignored, Saburo, is not who comes to mind.
  • Paul's supernatural abilities are further explored.
    • He does a sentai pose that apparently blows up Momoka's room.
    • The destructive end of his powers are hinted at by a stockholder, who becomes terrified when Paul enters the meeting room.
    • His cough ignites a puppy.
    • In the Post-Credits, Kululu mentions that Paul had a cold and kept launching trees into his room. This also calls back to SFA10, where Paul believed that he was the one who summoned the cherry blossom tree.
  • Keroro makes a callback to him selling coupons in SFA10, complete with nasally voice.
  • Momoka's father is made to be George Albert the Urinal Guy, the competitor to Todd's Toilets. He was not the person who made the radio commercial in SFA6, but rather the head of a large corporate conglomerate. His phone call when he first appears references Todd's blimps, the radio episode, and the apparent flaws with the radio commercial.
    • George also makes various urinal puns during his presentation to the stockholders.
  • The Nishizawa corporation's profits are at 4.99.
  • Kululu says the same "Hello, my friends!" from SFA3.
  • Dororo continues to have father problems, claiming that watching the DVD his dad gave him will make his dad come back. The man in the video is not Viper or anyone else ever seen in the series.
  • Keroro contacts Giroro by calling "Mr. Lady", a callback to Kululu calling him Mr. Lady in SFA3, which was in turn a reference to his transvestism.
    • He is also acting as Serious Keroro and wants Giroro to deliver the punchline. Failing to answer the joke is apparently a bad choice in the platoon.
    • Keroro is tapping out "I'm lonely", Dororo's occasional catch phrase, in Morse code.
  • Kululu manages to make the leaders of the world sing a "HEGH" harmony. He promptly quits and returns to the platoon.
  • MrFailGame appears again in the credits, this time jokingly listed as Dororo's dad.
  • HQ believes that the coffee maker is making him blind, a callback to Dororo thinking the same thing in SFA6.

Other Jokes and References

  • George Albert namechecks Stephen Morrissey.
  • Keroro references the "Freaky Fred" episode of Courage the Cowardly Dog in both Fred's signature "Naaaaaughtyyyy" refrain and by humming the recurring background music.
  • The Tiger Horse's "dialogue" are lines from Thorn's joke Kululu audition reversed and pitch-shifted down an octave.
  • When Keroro mentions a "spider-cat", Fuyuki's ire references the "spider pig" scene from The Simpsons Movie and its constant appearances.
  • Part of the Nishizawa Corporation's difficulty was that they did not sell female urinals, despite Japan being a country where female urinals are prominent.
  • Kululu's remark "Make it a kitten next time; who cares?" is a blatant trolling of cat lovers on the internet.
