I don't know if this has been mentioned or not, but one of the pet snacks is called a "Dagwood Sandwich", and the cartoon character from the comic strip "Blondie", named Dagwood, is obsessed with huge sandwiches like the pet snack.

Yes, the Necronomicon being the Book of the Dead popularized in H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos and the Sam Raimi Evil Dead movies. In The Floating Land there's a big head we're supposed to show respect to, that is also sold in the Bizarre...er, the Bazaar. It's called a Moai Statue. On the Island of Rapa Nui, aka Easter Island, the great stone heads are called Moai.

There's a quest in Colossus Blvd, and its name is "Stop, Thief!" This is sometimes said by the guards in the game Skyrim if you steal something. I've seen more Skyrim references but I've forgotten them. Also, the entire "Call of Cablooey" side questline is a nod to Cthullhu Mythos. Oh r'lyeh?
There's also a game call "Stop Thief!" It's an old game, though.

Wysteria has a quest called Tree and Leaf. Tree and Leaf is a book by J.R.R. Tolkien, containing the essay 'On Fairy Stories' and a short story called 'Leaf by Niggle'. It is also very charmingly illustrated.

The Marleybone Wand Shopkeeper is named Gary Anthony Webb. Gary Anthony Webb is the given name of British Pop star/has-been Gary Numan, who rose to fame in the 1980's with his hit single 'Cars'. He sank into obscurity shortly thereafter.

I'm not sure if this has anything to do with Tolkien or not, but the Earth teacher Chester Droors always looked like one of the dwarves from Lord of the Rings to me. Maybe that goes along with what you were saying.

Yeah could be. Chester Droors is also kind of a turn of phrase, as in Chest of Drawers, which is an old-fashioned name for the furniture item we call a dresser. In Marleybone the shoe shopkeeper is named Simon Ritchie. John Simon Ritchie is the given name of the late legendary British punk rocker Sid Vicious.

My favorite is the "password" in Zafaria that is the beginning to the song "The Lion Sleeps at Night."

One person is krokopatra, she is based on cleopatra. But that seems pretty obvious, but it's true. I think everything in wizard101 is based on another person from myths, past time, etc. you have a really good point

In Wysteria there is an art professor named Dolly Salvador. Play on words of the name of famous Spanish surrealist painter Salvador Dali.

My favorite easter egg in Wizard 101 is one that i'm sure few will understand unless they have seen the show that it is in reference to. If you go to Marleybone and head toward the entrance to Scotland Yard, there is a red phone booth which obviously should be the correct color of blue and standing outside it and to the left is a dog who is dressed eerily similar to the way Tom Baker used to dress when he played the role of the Doctor on Doctor who and the character's name is the Professor.

OK I admit this might be a bit of a stretch. I was listening to one of my CDs by 'Yes', a band that was very popular back in the 70s and 80s. The song was 'And You and I', and one of the lyrics was 'as a foundation left to create a Spiraling...'. OK the Spiraling got me thinking. Pulled out my old Yes vinyl records (Yes, vinyl Yes records, I'm old but smart enough to save them). Their album covers were very famous for artwork by an artist named Roger Dean, very cool stuff at the time. And one of the concepts was a planet blowing up, and small chunks of that planet floating off into space and somehow forming other planets and growing new life forms. Am I insane, reaching or whatever, or is this kind of similar to our Wizard101 Spiral? Is there a Yes fan among the KingsIsle game designers? Feel free to ridicule me, I'm probably way off base. Just got me thinking...

In Khrysalis, when you go into the honeymill, there's some Smoke Elementals who chant "Burn baby burn! Honeymill Inferno! Burn baby burn! Burn it all down!" This is a reference to the 70's song "Disco Inferno" by the Trammps.

Here is one from balance's power nova quest:

Jared Banks: Oh my! That's the most impressive crystal I've seen since that young clerk from Kent brought in a green one some time ago. ...

"clerk" +"Kent" + "green" crystal

Awesome reference
