The Pop Culture References, exclaimed by Mr. Peanutbutter are a recurring gag in BoJack Horseman.

[Editoral Note: With the show being set in Hollywoob and focusing extensively on the entertainment industry in often humorous ways, this article is only concentrating on the references spoken by or in the attendance of Mr. Peanutbutter, and is not a complete listing of all pop-cultural references made in BoJack Horseman.]

Over the entire course of the series, Mr. Peanutbutter repeatedly makes references/allegories about pop-cultural idioms or icons, reflecting on the current situations or predicaments he finds himself in.

Mr. Peanutbutter: Wow, we make a great pair. It's like I'm Miss Daisy and you're Minnie Driver!

Time: 07:05

Notes: The two references here are the film Driving Miss Daisy as Todd is the new driver for Mr. Peanutbutter, and the actress Minnie Driver, a subversion of expectations as Driver had no involvement with the film and is just referenced for her last name.

Characters: Mr. Peanutbutter, BoJack Horseman

Line:

Mr. Peanutbutter: [Towards camera] Hey, Chicago! Al Capone, deep dish. What does Ethan Hawk know? We'll find out tonight! Da Bears. [Towards Bojack] Oh BoJack, I'd love to help you out, but I'm super busy recording promos for television's highest-rated new game show.

BoJack Horseman: You know what? We can probably do it without you.

Camera Operator: Okay, this next one's for Seattle.

Mr. Peanutbutter: [Towards camera] Hey, Seattle! Space Needle. Starbucks. What does Ethan Hawk know? We'll find out tonight! Rain. [Towards Bojack] It's too bad though because I feel I could really bring a lot to this project.

BoJack Horseman: Actually, the more I think about it, Checkers wouldn't even be in the shot. It's just a Single on Secretariat.

Mr. Peanutbutter: [Towards camera] Hey, Waco, Texas. Terrible tragedy. What does Ethan Hawk know? We'll find out tonight! So sorry.

BoJack Horseman: You know what? Forget I even asked.

Mr. Peanutbutter: Twist my arm, why don't ya? I'll do it.

Line:

Katrina: CNN released a poll today, and for the first time ever, Mr. Peanutbutter is up.

Todd: Damn!

Mr. Peanutbutter: Wow. Am I John Davidson, Cathy Lee Crosby, and Frank Tarkenton right now, because:That's-

Katrina: We don't have time for whatever dumb reference you were setting up. We're doing a presser in thirty. Now go downstairs and get breakfast.

Mr. Peanutbutter: Yeah! Breakfast! Am I Emilio Estevez, Molly Ringwald, Judd Nelson, the principal...

Katrina: Just get breakfast!

Mr. Peanutbutter: Alright! *Airhorn blaring* Don't you forget about me.

Time: 04:38

Notes: Before being interrupted, Mr. Peanutbutter was referencing That's Incredible!, the 1980s TV show. Secondly, he was referencing the 1984 film The Breakfast Club. The third reference is to the song "Don't You (Forget about me)" by the Scottish band Simple Minds, which was prominently featured in the film.

Katrina's interruption is a meta-joke about the pop culture references Mr. Peanutbutter is constantly making.
