Trivia

  • Mr. Turner's hatred and jealousy of Mr. Dinkleberg is similar to Homer Simpson, another moronic cartoon dad, and his hatred of Ned Flanders and his family from The Simpsons, which Butch Hartman is a big fan of that show. However, the Dinklebergs don't have any children while Flanders has two sons.
    • A parody of Ned Flanders appears on The Fairly OddParents episode, "Channel Chasers", in The Feldmans, which is a parody of The Simpsons.
  • Sheldon Dinkleberg could also be a reference to Stephen Hillenburg, creator of SpongeBob SquarePants, who is Butch Hartman's "rival" on the network. The show's antagonist Plankton is also called Sheldon.
  • The Dinkleberg's name is a reference to D.I.N.K., meaning Dual Income No Kids, which refers to married couples like the Dinklebergs who have large amounts of money due to not spending it on kids.
  • Even though Sheldon Dinkleberg doesn't seem to want (or like) children, he is willing to be involved with them as evidenced by the fact he is the coach of the pee-wee soccer team named the Dinkle Ducks. He even once gave Timmy a bike and money out of kindness.
  • In the episode, Operation: Dinkleberg, it's revealed that Sheldon donated one of his kidneys to save Mr. Turner's life.
  • As 2010 "Dinkleberg..." has achieved memetic status. The meme consists of an image of Mr. Turner from "Miss Dimmsdale" blaming Dinkleberg for either something irrelevant or a world problem.
  • It is revealed that Mr. Dinkleberg is allergic to dust and lobster, although in one episode he is seen eating a lobster.
  • In I Dream of Cosmo, it is revealed if Dinkleberg doesn't exist, Mrs. Turner would be a two-headed fire breathing monster.
