< Back to the Norm


  • Second appearance of Norm the Genie.
  • This episode originally aired with Genie Meanie Minie Mo
  • After this episode's original airing, it was re-aired with Teeth for Two.
  • It is revealed that you can use your third genie wish to wish for more wishes despite the widespread belief that you can't. In the words of Norm, "We've been bluffing for centuries."


  • This episode's title could be a pun of "Back to the Future", or a pun on "norm" as shorthand/slang for "normal".
  • When Norm says "Hold on there, Hunch Back of Never-Dated-A-Dame." to Mr. Crocker, he is making a reference to The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
  • The scene where Crocker paint a tunnel and placed a rock on the cliff, is a parody of The Coyote and the Road Runner.
  • Uncle Albert's name may be a reference to the Only Fools and Horses (a BBC sitcom) character.
  • When Crocker fails his Crock-a-doodle-prank, the chicken store Crocker crashes in, at the left top, it says DFC, which is a parody of KFC.


  • When Norm poofs up a cup and ice cream, the ice cream is chocolate, but when he's in the same frame as Crocker, it's vanilla, then turns chocolate again after Crocker shakes it up. It could be possible that it was surrounded by regular milk, but there's no frame seen where Norm adds milk.
  • Before Crocker paints Trixie on the cliff, the paint on the paint brush is brown, but after he paints her, it's purple.
  • It is unknown why Crocker could have simply just used his third wish to make unlimited wishes instead of constantly wishing for 3 more wishes, because in Genie Menie Minie Mo, Norm said that his wishes are rule-free.

Running Gags

  • Crocker wishing for three more wishes and Norm granting them.
  • Norm insisting that Crocker wish Timmy to Mars, where Timmy would suffocate due to the lack of oxygen.
  • Crocker saying "Fairy Godparents" in different poses.
  • Crocker's plans failing
