For All Mask-Kind is the twenty-fifth episode of The Mask: The Animated Series.


Stanley is chosen to be the first average man to be sent into space with paranoid astronaut Gil Headstrong and The Mask comes along for the ride.



  • The episode's title is a parody of late American astronaut, Neil Armstrong's, famous line when he became the first human being to talk on the Moon; "This is one small step for Man. One giant leap for Mankind." The Mask also parodied the famous quote when about to attack Gil Headstrong, the astronaut who parodies Armstrong as saying, "This is one small step Mask. One giant wedgie for Mask-kind!". Another American astronaut, Jim Lovell, also has his famous line "Houston, we have a problem!", parodied by The Mask as saying "Ah Houston, he has a problem!"
  • The Mask parodied a couple famous Looney Tunes characters when sneaking up on Headstrong, who's trying to hunt him. He performs Elmer Fudd's famous catchphrase as "Be vewy, vewy quiet. I'm hunting aliens." then does Elmer's signature laugh. He next said Bugs Bunny's famous catchphrase as "What's up, dork?" towards Headstrong.
  • The aliens who abducted and studied on the Mask resembles Nimrel, one of Skillit's zombie goons and the evil version of Merlin the wizard from the season one Halloween episode, All Hallow's Eve.
  • PAL, the spacecraft's supercomputer, is a parody of HAL 9000 from the movie, 2001: A Space Odyssey.
  • Headstrong says a parody of Buzz Lightyear's famous catchphrase from Toy Story when playing with the 20 g Centrifuge that Stanley was riding on, "To eternity, and beyond."
