Ah, the Card Game Channel. The only station you'd be more ashamed to watch than the pay-per-view Porn channels.

- The TV scenes included in the opening montage include the actual opening from the English version of the Yu-Gi-Oh anime, an old commercial for a Black & Decker iron, a clip from Top Gear, a part of a commercial for Remington shavers (I was so impressed, I bought the company), and a clip from Space Ghost.
- The background song of the insurance commercial is "Fake Wings" from .hack//Sign.
- Yami saying "Say hello to my little friend" was a line from Scarface.
- The KaibaCorp commercial is in the same style as the MasterCard commercials.
- The first scene after the credits is a parody from Futurama, when there is a show called "Everyone Loves Hypno-Toad", where Hypno-Toad has the same eyes and sound.
- The music that plays during the Zorc and Pals advertisement is "Dearly Beloved" the title theme from the Kingdom Hearts series.
