The first two of your image links appear to be dead.... :dead2

ROFL @ Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure... it this some sort of lowlife bogus product à la "Commander Keen's Trek '96"?

That's strange, the images show up totally fine for me. They seem to be hosted on archive.shikadi.net. Maybe you have that domain blocked?

Good catches, Grandy02! That Cosmo one is very hilarious! :lol

Anyway, I found a few references:

I once saw a bag of dog food with an expiration date of March 14! Maybe that's the kind of dog food Mortimer gives to his dog! :mort

In Donkey Kong 64, the level Fungi Forest has tomato enemies that look just like the Tomatooths from Keen Dreams! They even hop after you! The only difference is that they are much bigger and have blue eyes.

In Pikmin 2, the enemy Pileated Snagret looks very similar to an enemy from Cosmo. Both have very similar methods of movement -- hopping!

Apparently the first 100,000 digits of pi contain 92 instances of 314 and 91 instances of 315! This proves that Keen was the smarter one all along! And that's not even counting 3.14! :O

The first 10,000,000 digits of pi are a little harder to quantify though.

This is no mere stupid reference is stupid, this is neat! And if not previously posted, deserves a spot in fan art. In fact, I'd wear this on a T shirt

That's funny! :lol

These are good "references", Keeners! Speaking of Keen references, I think might have a seen a few in Looney Tunes, or, should I say, possible inspirations for Commander Keen. Okay, I think I found one Keen reference in modern(ish) Looney Tunes, Looney Tunes: Back in Action to be exact. When Kate and Bugs Bunny are driving through a city, looking for Daffy Duck, Kate mentions that there are 314 hotels!
