    Post Show Info:
    • This was Aisha Tyler’s first credited voice acting gig.  She then went on to become even more famous for her voice as Lana (Luna??? COINCIDENCE???) Kane in Archer.
    • During Grandad’s story about Lionel Richie and his ex-wife, a soul version of Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” plays in the background during Richie’s “ass whupping” scene. This is a true story.
    • Notably the episode has moments involving winks at the Mortal Kombat franchise. “FINISH HIM!”, “LUNA WINS”, and “FLAWLESS VICTORY”.
    • In Luna’s flashback, Bushido Brown , who first appeared in “Let’s Nab Oprah”, participates in the Kumite.
    • Luna tells Robert and the boys that she has competed in the Kumite, a reference to the 1988 film Bloodsport about the life of Frank Dux, to where Riley then compares Luna to Jean-Claude Van Damme.
    • Running gag: A martial arts sound effect is heard every time someone says “kumite”.
