Behind the scenes

  • George taking dance lessons from a robot is practically a rehash of "Dance Time."
  • The dance studio is a parody of the Arthur Murray dance studio chain.


  • Nobody seems to be aware of how big George has suddenly got because of the trapped large sprocket underneath his clothing.
