Memorable Quotes


  • The Dukes of Hazzard - Principal Tater mentions that Derby's Babydoll T-Shirt would look good with his Daisy Duke shorts.


  • Slab's reenactment of a great scientific discovery is a possible parody of The Flintstones.
  • In the U.S the scenes where Derby makes a drawing of a lady bending over to pick up a lightbulb, and when Adam runs around the lab while on fire are cut out. And Derby's line is changed from "It just keeps burning!" to "Look at those fibers glow!"
