The way Neil deBuck Weasel describes the science is a spoof of a documentary named Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey (2014), starring Neil deGrasse Tyson, who voices this character. Also, at the end, where he describes how Mars was a barren planet, he is seen in a spacecraft that spoofs "The Ship of the Imagination", featured in the same documentary.

The film was originally going to end with Scrat fighting aliens (who resemble Scratte from the third film) for the acorn. It was possibly cut for time constraints, and replaced with the much shorter scene with Scrat ramming the ship into Mars, making it uninhabitable. The scenes with him fighting the aliens was included on the DVD, as a bonus feature.
