- Fruit Pie the Sorcerer is a parody of Fruit Pie the Magician, the mascot of Hostess fruit pies, and several associated mock comics where Hostess fruit pies saved the day. Hostess bought ads in old comics where their fruit pies solved the crisis, often quite ridiculously.
- This is the only appearance of Fruit Pie the Sorcerer.
