Trivia

  • They are likely based off Rick and Nick ICK, commonly known as The ICK Brothers, a pair of V.I.L.E. henchmen who had similar jobs, seen in the 1996 edition of Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?, who were assigned to "clean up" the evidence of V.I.L.E.'s whereabouts. However, the brothers' incompetence always ends up creating more messes for V.I.L.E.'s members as ACME's detectives continue to pursue them.
  • They appear to have some difficulty with modern technology, as seen in "The Haunted Bayou Caper", when The Troll had trouble instructing them on utilizing a retinal scan phone app.
