Behind the scenes Edit
- In an interview that can be found as an extra for The Three Doctors DVD, the writers wanted to name K9 "Pluto" after Mickey's famous pet sidekick, but Disney did not grant permission.
- Disney Time 1975 was a 1975 TV special where Tom Baker as the Fourth Doctor introduced a variety of Disney clips, including the Mickey Mouse cartoon Clock Cleaners. The beginning of the special implied that the Doctor personally knew Mickey Mouse, whom he "had not seen in a while", though a man he talked to on the street of London only knew him, Donald Duck and Goofy as "Disney toons".
- Ace's reference to Mickey acting as a spy and disguising himself from the purpose in Genesys is most likely a reference to the seminal 1939 comic strip Mickey Mouse Outwits the Phantom Blot.
