  • The Hunchback of Notre-Dame: Hugo, representing Quasimodo, is living up in the attic.
  • Basket Case: Hugo wanting to be sewn back together.
  • The King and I: The segment title, "The Thing and I," is a parody of the film and play, The King and I.
  • Twilight Zone: "The Genesis Tub" is inspired by the 1962 Twilight Zone episode called "The Little People," where astronauts stumble upon a tiny civilization on an asteroid.
  • The Outer Limits: "The Genesis Tub" also closely resembles the two-part series premiere of the modern incarnation of "Outer Limits" titled "Sandkings" (parts I and II respectively) which first aired a year and a half prior to ToH VII. The main character "grows" his own mini-civilization which experiences rapid generational advances, and begins to build complex structures out of the sand. The main character becomes power-crazed with a "god complex."
  • Claw Game: The way Homer is abducted is reminiscent of the claw game (giant claw picking him up) and its difficulty (dropping him first time around).
  • Citizen Kane: The segment title, "Citizen Kang," is a parody of the 1941 film Citizen Kane.
  • Scooby Doo: When Homer unmasks the presidental-candidates Scooby Doo and his gang have the same reaction of Ripping off the masks of the villains.
  • Fish-Heads: Homer sings Fish-Heads by Barnes & Barnes while bringing bucket full of fish-heads to Hugo Simpson.
  • Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope: Kang commissioning the construction of a giant cannon to be fired at "a moon that [Earth] hadn't even heard of before" may have been a reference to the Death Star and its attempt at firing on Yavin 4, a moon.
