Gadget: "Last stop: Cat Alley!"
Monty: "Did ya have to say 'last,' Gadget?"
Chip: "You woke me up because of a stupid comic book?"
Dale: "It's not a stupid comic book! It's a Kablammo Man comic book!"
Guest: "What a gem Mr. Klutchkoin is! By the way, where is he?"
Miss Klutchkoin: "Still writing zeroes on the check. Been at it three weeks, poor dear."
Harvey's wife: "Get this place cleaned up, Harvey! My mother will be here any minute!" (Kookoo climbs over the window, scaling the side of the building)
Harvey: "Too late. She's already here."
Kookoo and Boots are based on the gorilla Koko who had been taught to communicate with humans via sign language, as Kookoo has been taught to actually speak, and her cats, especially a kitten Koko herself named All Ball.
The scene in which Kookoo climbs up the skyscraper is a parody on the several King Kong movies.
This episode shares its title with an episode of the Donkey Kong segment of the 1984 Saturday morning cartoon Saturday Supercade. However, the first known use is the Bugs Bunny cartoon of the same name.
