If you look closely you will see that Danny Phantom is shown on the back of the comic, it says "Butch Hartman's Danny Phantom", and a caption that says "Coming Soon". This means that in Sprig' universe is some date before April 3, 2004.
    • Also, in the Danny Phantom episode "What You Want", when Danny and Tucker were at the movie theater, they were playing in a "Crash Nebula" arcade game.
  • Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog - Chuck and Dif in appearance are similar to Scratch and Grounder. They even have similar voices.
