This list comprises every movie parody and reference in Home Movies! It took me a good while to gather all this info together but it was well worth the effort! Enjoy!! :D

(Even though I went through painstaking measures to make sure I have all the references I may be missing some references possibly. If I am and I find anymore I'll add them to the list.)
