Episode Notes
The theme music that plays for Peter while he's ridin' on the bus has been used in the show before, in the episode "Wasted Talent".

Episode Quotes
Little Diane: Tom, you're so far in the closet, you're finding Christmas presents.

Doctor: Mayor West, you have Lymphoma.
Adam West: Oh My.
Doctor: Probably from rolling around in that toxic waste. What in God's name were you trying to prove?
Adam West: I was trying to gain super powers.
Doctor: Well that's just silly.
Adam West: Silly, yes...idiotic...yes.

Little Peter: Why don't you two make like Siamese twins and split... and then one of you die.

Little Peter: Wow, that Lois is some kinda woman.
Little Quagmire: Yeah, just thinkin' about her makes my testicles wanna drop. Ooh, speak of the devil. Ooh, make that devils.

Peter: Well, we promised Lois we'd use our powers responsibly, but I suppose doing the exact opposite couldn't hurt.

Peter: I'm gonna go microwave a bagel and have sex with it.
Quagmire: Butter's in the fridge!

Peter: Oh no. I gotta fart, but I don't know which way to lean.

Genie: I am here to grant you three wishes.
Lois: Peter, three wishes. Oh this is so exciting.
Meg: I want a new hat.
Chris: I want a new hat.
Stewie: I want them to have new hats!

Lois: Kids, we just have to learn to accept this. Like one of those stories on Dateline where a family member suffers a horrible accident and becomes a burden on everybody. Sure, they pretend to be happy, but they're dead inside, they're dead. And that'll be our lives.

Peter: Anyone who opposes our demands will be destroyed. Our first demand: You will erect a statue in the town square. This statue will depict Blair Warner admitting to Mrs Garrett that the poem she submitted for her creative writing class was actually plagiarised from a work by Emily Dickinson. We have spoken!

Episode Goofs
Stewie reveals his butt while peeing on a boneless Peter, however, if you look closely enough he has no crack.

At the beginning of the episode, we see the Griffin's watching television. Meg has a bag of peanuts next to her, but in "The Kiss Seen Around The World" we found out that she is allergic to peanuts.

When Peter is on the kitchen table with no bones we see Stewie in his high chair wearing his usual yellow shirt & red overalls but when Lois says "I guess we could adjust to this", he's only wearing his yellow shirt, his red overall are gone.

When Chris presses Peter's flesh into the comics like silly putty, the imprint is clearly upside down but when Chris stretches the image, Mary Worth's face is right side up.

Cultural References
Lil' Griffins

The title and the short itself are references to the famous TV show, and later movie: "The Little Rascals".

Adam West: I've dealt with superbeings before.

This is a funny reference. Adam West, the real Adam West, played Batman on the original TV series. This line is an obvious reference to that.
