The Transfer Student is Dandy, Baby is the seventeenth episode of the Space Dandy anime.
Dandy infiltrates a high school in the hopes of finding a rare alien.
- The episode is a reference to the City of Beverly Hills, California.
- The idea of a musical high school is an obvious parody to most TV shows and movies like High School Musical.
- After discovering the high school Dandy's attending is actually a musical school Meow remarks, "The glee he must be feeling right now..." This is a reference the the Fox network show Glee.
- In the first song the green alien in the captain's hat flying towards the camera greatly resembles the ghost Slimer from the film and animated series of Ghostbusters.
- One of the alien jocks looks like a muscular buff version of E.T. from E.T. the Extraterrestrial.
- The fly teacher is a reference to the sci-fi horror film The Fly (1958), and possibly its 1986 remake.
- The Hulk is also referenced by the three fusing jocks.
