The Crackpet Show references[edit | edit source]
- Cowie and Sharky appear as character representatives from the game.
- Cub is watching a snippet of The Crackpet Show intro where two crackpets are facing Mega Toad.
- One of Cub's ways to copy the TV show has him fire a plunger. The Mark Gun is a weapon in The Crackpet Show that involves firing a plunger, albeit not via bow like what Cub did.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- "Too Much Scream Time" is the first Happy Tree Friends episode to be published in the 2020s and is the first episode after seven years since the original release of "In Over Your Hedge" back in 2016.
- "Too Much Scream Time" is one of the Happy Tree Friends shorts to be tie-ins with video games. The others are "False Alarm" with the eponymous game, "Buns of Steal" with Run & Bun, and "Camp Pokeneyeout" with Deadeye Derby. This short, however, is the only one to be a collaboration with a third party instead of related to a Mondo Studios video game.
- "Too Much Scream Time" is one of the Happy Tree Friends videos to feature guest characters in the animation. The show already featured the Fall Out Boy in "The Carpal Tunnel of Love" and Really Good Unicornius, who is a contest submission from Oliver Age 24, in "Pet Peeve".
