References to Popular Culture

  • The sequence where Cartman finally freezes and the years are scrolling by is taken directly from the 1979 sci-fi show Buck Rogers. The same theme music and intro clips are seen as Cartman remains frozen. Other elements of the "future" for this episode and the subsequent episode are inspired by characters and events from the same show.
  • The war between the Allied Atheist Alliance (AAA) and the United Atheist Alliance (UAA) were inspired by the religious satire film Monty Python's Life of Brian and the rival factions, Judean People's Front and the People's Front of Judea.
  • Cartman's appearance when he finally freezes is similar to Jack Torrance's frozen body from the film The Shining.
  • The Flying Spaghetti Monster (also known as the Spaghedeity) is the deity of a parody religion called The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster and its system of beliefs, "Pastafarianism".
  • Richard Dawkins is a British ethologist, evolutionary biologist and popular science writer. The Flying Spaghetti Monster has been used by Richard Dawkins in his book The God Delusion, to demonstrate ideas from that book.
  • At the beginning of the episode, when Cartman looks at the store, you can see the games Warcraft, and Starcraft.
  • The weapon held by the sea otter at the end of the episode is similar to the M41A pulse rifle from Aliens.
    • The device covering his eye is similar to the Scouter device from the Dragon Ball Z series, mainly the scouters worn by Vegeta and Turles.
  • The weapons held by the Unified Atheist League are similar to the Halo series' Needler.
  • The background music in the scene where Ms Garrison and Richard Dawkins are in bed and she shows him her breasts is similar to the conspiratorial music in Battlestar Galactica. Trey Parker and Matt Stone are noted as being fans of re-imagined Battlestar Galactica series.
  • The episode title is a reference to the children's book Go, Dog. Go! written by P. D. Eastman in 1961.


  • Neither Kyle Broflovski or Stan Marsh want to help Eric Cartman freeze himself because they know he will die. This shows that they do care for Cartman to an extent.
  • Cartman thinks he can survive by freezing himself, despite the others knowing he will die. However, in "Prehistoric Ice Man", they successfully unfreeze Larry, who was still alive.
  • This is the second time Cartman calls Butters a "black asshole", the first time being in "Marjorine".


  • Atheism is explored as a concept in this episode, but in the show's continuity there is no doubt that most major religions are true:
    • Jesus Christ himself has been shown in numerous episodes and was widely known to the public, even having his own talk show.
    • God has appeared in several episodes and revealed himself on national news.
    • Heaven and Hell have both been shown to exist many times.
    • Satan has appeared in many episodes.
    • Mormons were confirmed to have "picked the right religion" to get into Heaven in Probably.
    • Many other major deities and prophets have appeared on the show, including Muhammad, Buddha, Krishna, Lao Tse, Moses and Joseph Smith.
