Coincidentally, Mike Skylark shares his nickname with Michelangelo from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Mikey Munroe from Bunsen is a Beast, the latter of which was created by Butch Hartman. Greg Cipes also voiced Michelangelo in the 2012 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles TV series.
Mike's favorite hero is the Platinum Princess, unaware that it's actually his mom, Britney Britney.
In his first appearance, it's revealed that Mike hasn't seen his mom since his birth. The reason for this is because Britney's busy hosting The Z Factor, a parody of the talent show The X Factor, where Britney Spears works as a host.
