The Cleveland Show Wiki
  • The title is a reference to the original title of The Sid Caesar Show, where guest star Carl Reiner, among others, famously got his start.
  • Cleveland's first show concept parodies The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson while Lester's dress and animals parody "Jungle" Jack Hanna's appearances on Late Night with David Letterman.
  • Rallo's remark of "I learned it by watching you" to Donna and the ensuing announcement regarding karate are a reference of the “I learned it by watching you” commercial which was part of the US anti-narcotics campaign by Partnership for a Drug-Free America (PDFA). The commercial referenced first aired in the 1980s.
  • When Lester kisses Kendra after her "makeover", her makeup makes him appear as Heath Ledger's Joker from The Dark Knight.
