  • The word shit is uncensored three times in this episode; once by Scott and twice (once uncensored) by Mr. Mackey. The last time shit was uncensored without a special circumstance was in "It's Christmas in Canada", where the French Canadian says shit at the end of the French Canadian Song; both episodes main plots were in Canada.
    • Matt Stone, in an interview on The Daily Show With Jon Stewart, said that Comedy Central has allowed the word shit to be uncensored now.
  • Ugly Bob's ability to turn Tooth Decay into stone just by staring at it is akin to Medusa of Greek legend and her ability to turn any living thing she looks at into stone.
  • Terrance, Phillip and The Queef Sisters appeared at the royal wedding but don't have speaking roles.
  • The dental hygiene play performed by the kindergartners is a lot better produced than their last play at the end of "Helen Keller! The Musical". It's possible this is because the combined factors of the 3rd graders appeared to make their play all on their own, so it's likely the kindergartners made that one by themselves, too and Mr. Mackey's deep feeling on the issue of tooth decay.
  • Queefing and The Queef Sisters are again mentioned from "Eat, Pray, Queef".
  • When Ike is searching in his closet for his box of faith, a pirate hat is seen on his lamp. This may be a reference to his "adventures" as a pirate in "Fatbeard", there is also a Chinpokomon from "Chinpokomon".
  • Canadians wear order of knight, which has resemblance to Order of British Empire, a parody of the Order of Canada.
  • Mr. Mackey states his father was murdered by Tooth Decay; this is possible, since Mr. Mackey Sr. was last seen in "Child Abduction is Not Funny".
  • In the creator's commentary, Matt Stone mentions how much he disliked the hype surrounding Prince William and Catherine Middleton's wedding and debated with the staff if it was even worth making into an episode. Trey Parker then mentions that he saw parts of it and how it felt strange, especially having an announcer constantly mentioning that certain parts were traditional. They also mention:
    • The Canadians attending the wedding were the first scenes animated for the episode, as they wanted to see if they could run with that idea into a fully fleshed out episode.
    • The children's play was based on Trey and Matt having just finished rehearsals for The Book of Mormon, though the idea of Tooth Decay was simply because they ran out of ideas.
    • The Eskimos' lines were actually recorded by a local Native American tribe from California. They also mention that the scenes involving them were changed, as they originally were going for a National Geographic type of scene.
    • It was also revealed that there would have been two additional scenes with Mr. Mackey screaming at the children, but were cut for time. One scene would have involved him taking the kids to Niagara Falls to help them finally understand about the dangers of tooth decay.

References to Popular Culture

  • The Canadian royal wedding is a parody of Prince William and Catherine Middleton's wedding.
    • Many of the clothes worn by attendees were based on actual people - for example, Tara Palmer-Tomkinson wore a conspicuous blue "gondola hat" at the real-life Wedding, and a Canadian counterpart can be seen in identical dress.
    • Few guests at the wedding resemble members of the Royal Family, including Prince Harry, Queen Elizabeth II, and Michael Middleton.
    • An announcer constantly claiming that something was part of the tradition was based on an announcer during the televised Royal wedding who would say the same thing.
  • Canadian musicians Bryan Adams and Corey Hart as well as Canadian rock band Rush are shown in the episode.
    • Corey Hart wearing sunglasses as he heads inside is a nod to his 1984 single "Sunglasses at Night".
  • The mass depression and suicides in Canada satirizes the public reaction of the citizens of England to the death of Princess Diana.
  • Mr. Mackey's curse-heavy rants are a reference to the University of Texas baseball head coach Augie Garrido.
  • "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo" is a song from the Walt Disney's animated film Cinderella.
  • The band Rush plays the parody of "Candle in the Wind" by Elton John, a song he adapted for Princess Diana Spencer following her death in 1997.
  • The part with the princess being trapped in a cube and the mushroom people are a reference to Super Paper Mario, a Nintendo Wii game. Tooth Decay's physical appearance is also likely a reference to Bowser.
  • During the marriage, Sir Edward Elgar's "Pomp and Circumstance: March No. 1" can be heard.
  • Prime minister is parody of Pierre Trudeau, father of the current Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau.
  • The song that the kids perform about tooth decay appears to be based on the Sesame Street sketch, "Prairie Dawn's School Pageant", specifically the tooth pageant as seen here.


  • In the shots in the theater where Mr. Mackey is sitting at a table, the table top passes through the row of seats in front of him.
  • Near the end of the wedding, the announcer says "The Princess is sticking the Princess's arm up his ass" instead of "The Prince". Quite clearly misspoken.
