Cultural References
The title of this episode “Stanny Slickers II: The Legend of Ollie's Gold” is a take off of the title of the 1994 Billy Crystal (1947-) comedy “City Slickers II: The Legend of Curly's Gold”

Stan: “It's a gateway piercing, the next thing you know, you'll have a bone through your lip like one of those rain forest people Sting is always whining about”

English musician Sting (1951-), former lead singer of “The Police”, is mentioned in this episode.

“Big Buy” is a combination of the retail chains Best Buy and Big Lots

Stan: “What? I can't believe you kids don't know about the great patriot Ollie North”

Oliver North (1943-) is best known for his main role in the Iran-Contra Affair in the late 80's.

Stan's song and animated visuals is an allusion to “Schoolhouse Rock!” , a series of Saturday morning animated musical shorts that taught kids about grammar, science, civics, economics, history, math & government.
They ran steadily on ABC from 1973 to 1986, returning sporadically from 1993 to 1996 & ending in 1999.

The DVD commentary for this episode indicates Stan's song was originally based off Schoolhouse Rock's, “Interjections!”, but they couldn't get clearance so it's an original tune although some of the visuals, like the newspaper boy and Roger dressed as a little girl are indeed from “Interjections!”.

Former American Presidents Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) & George Bush (1924-) make appearances during Stan's “Ollie North” song.

The character of “Ivan Drago” (the Russian boxer that appears with Uncle Sam) from 1985's “Rocky IV”, played by Dolph Lundgren (1957-) also makes an appearance as well as Fawn Hall (1959-).
She was North's secretary who helped him shred confidential documents.

Stan: “...the good, the bad and the ugly.”

“Il buono, il brutto, il cattivo”, or the English translation, “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” is a 1969 western starring Clint Eastwood (1930-)

Luke Fondleburg (Roger): “You see that episode of Seinfeld Thursday night 10 years ago?”

The long running NBC sitcom “Seinfeld” (1989-1998) is mentioned in this episode.

When Stan recreates his finding of the gold, he is dressed as Harrison Ford's (1942-) character “Indiana Jones”

Stan: “Here's looking at you gold”

Stan's line is a take off of the classic quote “Here's looking at you kid”, from the 1942 film “Casablanca”

American actors, Bruce Campbell (1958-) & Campbell Scott (1961-) are mentioned in this episode.
