I'll put a smile on your face and green in your pocket!
You'll be safe and insured when you're under my employ!
Now, look at it! Gaze upon my empire of joy!
You knew your game with the ladies wasn't so super
So you made a bunch of puppets and felt up some Boobers
You know you game with the ladies was as tiny as a Doozer
Nice Peter had previously mentioned that Stan Lee was planned to be in the first half of the season before being scrapped, possibly meaning this battle was initially going to happen earlier on in the season.
On the other hand, instead of showing the original version of "Hulk Hogan and Macho Man vs Kim Jong-il," the re-edit of the battle is shown. This version of the battle was still in development when "Jim Henson vs Stan Lee" was released and would not be fully released until April 27th, 2019 (later deleted) and May 25th, 2019.
The credits show this battle with different editing, including slightly different title cards for Stan Lee and Jim Henson, a differently-edited "SPLONK!" sequence, and the addition of two Stan Lees mimicking The Hulk during the line, "I'm telling you, Henson, you wouldn't like time when I'm angry; I'm a marvel of a party pooper."
The end segment briefly gives special thanks to this Wiki.
Starting with the line, "You belong to Disney," and ending at, "Cranking out magic and assembly line whimsy!", Disney's background temporarily turns into a "classic Mickey" silhouette. He later "draws" a similar image, mentioning it in the line, "With only three circles, I dominate the planet!", and finally at the end of the battle, Mickey Mouse appears in some of the animators' drawings. This is a reference to "Hidden Mickeys," a phenomenon that appears in Disney movies and in the Disney theme parks, in which the classic shape of Mickey Mouse (and occasionally other Disney characters) are hidden for fans to discover.
The aforementioned hidden ERB logos are likely also references to this.
Many of the animators drew characters and logos owned by the Walt Disney Company, including:
The Walt Disney Company logo.
The ABC logo.
The A&E logo.
The ESPN logo.
The History Channel logo.
The Maker Studios and Epic Rap Battles of History logos.
