  • 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 who viewed the Silver Spooner as a misuse of their character and a potential copyright infringement.
