  • Coincidentally, Deem Bristow, who originally Dr. Eggman in the Sonic the Hedgehog series, died of a heart attack the same year Long John Baldry die.
  • He unintentionally created the Pingas meme in an episode of the show although he died way before the meme existed. It has become so popular in the late 2000s and early 2010s that it would later use as a reference in some later media such as an episode of Sonic Boom and Archie Sonic issue #205.
