  • The Silver Spooner is an obvious spoof of Marvel Comics' The Silver Surfer.
  • The Silver Spooner is presented as a queer stereotype, likely derived from his flashy appearance. This is represented by his catty demeanor, his ballerina-like motions, muscled physique, and his adoration/crush for actress and gay icon Judy Garland (which would still be a heterosexual crush regardless).
  • Unlike the Silver Surfer, the Silver Spooner remains loyal to Barbequor and keeps anyone away from him when they try to stop them.
  • It is commonly believed that the episode he came from was banned because people thought he was a queer stereotype, but in actuality the episode was banned due to threats by the creators of Silver Surfer over at Marvel Comics and the Jack Kirby Estate who viewed the Silver Spooner as a misuse of their character (which included the stereotypically queer mannerisms) and a potential copyright infringement.
