  • Strong Badia the Free — Homestar's "letter" to Marzipan, detailing the siege on the King of Town's castle is presented in a similar style to Ken Burns' 1990 documentary, The Civil War, complete with sepia-toned backgrounds and violin music
  • Email radio — Marzipan listens to a radio station titled "PRS" (Public Radio Sounds).
  • Email autobiographyStrong Bad's intro ("This email is brought to you by a grant from The Cheat and the support of Viewers Like You") comes from the start (and end) of most PBS television programs.
  • Email morning routineStrong Sad says he wants to "watch that show on public broadcasting hosted by that British guy".

PBS Kids

  • Email for kids — Homsar asking the kids if they want to "hear of [the song] 50 times more" may be a reference to the PBS show Teletubbies, in which whenever a "real-life" clip is shown, it is always repeated per request of the Teletubbies.
  • Teen Girl Squad Issue 6 — "3 noses?" may reference an episode of the Magic School Bus, in which the judges award points for the best smell with a score in "noses".
  • Email rampage — Strong Bad's "reading rampage" is a reference to Reading Rainbow.
  • The Li'l Brudder Show — Lil' Brudder scraping along the top of the title is similar to the opening sequence of SciGirls.
