Tron is a 1982 American science fiction film written and directed by Steven Lisberger, and released by Walt Disney Pictures. The film tells the story of game programmer Kevin Flynn as he attempts to hack into the ENCOM mainframe to prove that co-worker has appropriated his work, but ends up being transported into the Digital World itself as a unique program/User. There, he teams up with Tron to defeat the Master Control Program, who has been controlling the Digital World.

In "A Hero Sits Next Door" a cutaway shows that during a Calvin Klein commercial, Peter once got stuck trying to think of the villain's name in Tron.

Peter claims to have only been defeated once in "One if by Clam, Two if by Sea". The cutaway shows Peter in the lightcycle race in Tron, but when he meets an old friend Eric, he allows himself to become distracted and lose.
