Bart Simpson's hair on audience

  • Apple - The computer interfaces shown in the episode homage are that of Mac OS 9.

Running Gags

  • Whenever a child is writing a message (except for Veronica), a parent knocks on the kid's door and says "_____! I'm both respecting your privacy by knocking but asserting my authority as your mother/father by coming in anyway!" and breaks down their child's door with a battering ram.
  • People (including Crocker himself) says that Crocker looks pretty in a dress.
  • People (or in one case animals) think Timmy is a computer virus upon seeing him.



  • Before Timmy saves the image of Crocker in the red dress, the background (in the image) was the computer's screen instead of Crocker's room.
  • When Mr. Crocker accidentally took a picture of himself in a dress, Timmy is in Crocker's computer and takes the image. When he is holding the image, Crocker is posing for the picture (accidentally). But when people receive the photo, he is seen talking, not posing.
  • When Timmy writes to Trixie from Veronica's computer "Do u think Timmy Turner is neat?", Veronica should have seen him writing this (though this may not be the case since Veronica left to go eat dinner for a moment). Even when Trixie replies "Why, do you?" she responds as if she had written the question herself.
  • Why would Cosmo and Wanda put on a Timmy costume together when they can change shape and it only takes one of them to do so?
  • Timmy believes he is in China when actually he is in Dimmsdale, and he said he got there in a millisecond, he should have still been in his house to get there in a millisecond, and he was actually in Australia before.
  • Trixie's hair in the picture disappears when Timmy's dad asked what his mother has been feeding him.
  • The download bar on Crocker's computer changes from blue, to black, to green, to black again, and back to blue.
  • When Timmy grabs on to a letter in the chat room, it's the o he's hanging from. When the message is sent, he's holding on to the l in the email.
  • When Crocker downloads the image, Timmy (on the picture’s) mouth is closed but in the next shot, his mouth is open.

(Lyel, Kevin, and Bruce, three gorilla scientists see Timmy on their computer)
