Dialogue notwithstanding, my first thoughts on seeing Bouissou were actually of Zippy the Pinhead.

Yow!

Carmine Raynal with her red floppy hat and trenchcoat is reminiscent of Carmen Sandiego: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carmen_Sandiego_(franchise)

I see what appears to be Dr. Zachary Smith behind the green guy, and Han Solo with Leia and Luke on the bench behind him.

Looks like Greedo in the far background as well. I'm not sure about this one, but the alien on the right is a bit inspired from ET maybe?

"MEPS!" is what Coneheads cry in distress or anger, in the Saturday Night Live sketches and movie.

page=1946 "At least I got to view for real the vast, emerald waves of, uh, ornikale or tomaccoli or whatever that was. I just wished it wasn't so farckin bright."

Tomaccoli is a portmanteau Tomato and Broccoli, but it evokes Tomacco which is a Tomato/Tobacco hybrid created in the Simpsons-verse by Homer https://simpsons.fandom.com/wiki/Tomacco

Guido is a homage to Chico Marx. Even the fake Italian accent.

page=1944 is his first appearance

Stan Lee appears as the Agri-Bubble quantum mechanic is steip 1948.

Frederator!

Frederator!

If you (or someone) could cite the strip number and the homage in a bit more detail, I would appreciate it.

Surely Podkayne Robotics is based on Mars?

Tralfamadore -  The Tralfamadorians are a fictional alien race mentioned in several novels by Kurt Vonnegut.

Podkayne Robotics - Podkayne of Mars is a science fiction novel by American writer Robert A. Heinlein.

as Coytoy said but failed to elaborate upon, all these arti-folk (and the one on page=1771) evoke Fredbot from Frederator Studios (also known as "Frederator, Inc."), the production company of Fred Seibert, producer of various animated shows, mostly on Nickelodeon.

>Wendy: Folks, this is Stanley Goodman. He's my quantum mechanic.

In addition, "Stanley Goodman" is a portmanteau of Stan Lee's given first name and (publisher) Martin Goodman's last name.

Stan Lee appears as the Agri-Bubble quantum mechanic is steip 1948.
