  • The character "Bully the Crud" is a pun-on the legendary westerner "Billy the Kid"
  • The word "Scarizona" is a pun-on "Scare" and "Arizona".
  • This's the second time Lydia almost gets married to someone, just like the first was with Beetlejuice in his own live-action film in 1988.
  • There's also a Spongebob Squarepants episode named “Pest of the West”, albeit this version’s title had, and O, and an apostrophe unlike the aforementioned.
  • The commercial Beetlejuice makes to show Lydia the Neitherworld’s Scarizona has a similar western theme to the commercial Beetlejuice makes for the Maitlands in the film.
  • Throughout this episode, Lydia wears black clothes and holds a camera, which is a reference to the original live-action film.
