Trivia

  • The title of this cartoon spoofs the phrase "All's Fair in Love and War."
  • Julia returns in this cartoon. Although she's seen as a virtual simulation for most of the episode, the real Julia briefly shows up at the end.
  • According to storyboard artist Lisa Vandenberg, she "interpreted the door as a metaphor for Brain being in the closet and boarded the episode to reflect that". This could imply that Brain is LGBTQ+.
  • The cartoon's premise is similar to an MCU miniseries WandaVision - just like the show's Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch, Brain immerses himself in an artificial, more encouraging reality to help himself overcome the pain of having lost a close one, though the causes of that differ in the stories: Wanda's loss of her lover Vision was completely out of her control, while Brain had a direct hand in making Julia dead-set on getting revenge on him, a justifiable reaction.
  • When Brain tells Pinky to "run Pinky, run!", Pinky remarks that it is "just like season 2." This is a nod to the season 2 cartoon "Run Pinky Run."
  • According to Gabe Swarr[3], the design inspiration for AI Julia's robotic form is based on Marvel supervillain Arnim Zola (created by Jack Kirby). The scene where AI Julia glitches out is a reference to Cain from RoboCop 2.

Cute Things That Can Kill You

Animation by Birdo

Cute Things Title

Plot

A narrator warns viewers of "cute"-looking things that can kill them by using a human boy as a model. These fatal "cute" items include a loris with a bite that can rot human flesh, a poisonous puffer fish, and an erratic deer whose innocent looks are deceiving (and can lead to automobile accidents). The segment ends with the loris, puffer fish and the deer standing at the boy's tombstone, which simply says the title of the segment.

Production Notes

  • A listing on the Entertainment Identifier Registry indicates that a working title for this episode was "The Wrath of Khan/Lawn in Sixty Seconds/All's Fair in Love and Door."[4] The title of "The Wrath of Khan," of course, is a reference to the 1982 science-fiction film Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. It would've revolved around the siblings quarreling with the founder and first khagan of the Mongol Empire, Genghis Khan.[5] Executive producer Gabe Swarr confirmed that "The Wrath of Khan" was scrapped due to poor animation quality from an overseas studio, deeming it "problematic" to air. The cartoon was then replaced by "Global Warnering." According to Swarr, it would've taken more work to get "Khan" to be in a more passable state compared to "Global Warnering."[6]
