Main article: Average-ers / Legend of Dora (Transcript)


  • This is the only time the Legend of Korra and Cash Cab get spoofed, and the first time Spy vs. Spy used a pop culture reference (the Avengers).
  • This is the second appearance of the Everything is Better with Ninjas! segment.
  • This is the third time Spy vs. Spy was in color, and the 22nd time Spy vs. Spy was done in stop-motion.
  • 12th appearance of the Rejected segment, and also the second time a Rejected segment became an Alfred E. Neuman for President segment, the first was Episode 59.
  • After Cartoon Network stopped airing new episodes of MAD every Monday night at 8:45 PM, right after Annoying Orange at 8:30 PM, they resumed airing new episodes of MAD at a new night and a new time during the CN Thursday Night Death Slot, Thursday night at 8:00 PM, starting with this episode of MAD.
    • This is also the first episode of MAD to premiere on Thursday night at 8:00 PM.
  • Running Gag: Disgruntled by a lack of screen time in the first sketch, Hulk barges in on other sketches yelling "HULK WANT MORE SCREEN TIME!" Annoying, isn't it?
