The end of the film promises a sequel, Doctor Detroit II, the Wrath of Mom. It's possible that this was merely a joke, parodying The Wrath of Khan .GEE, YA THINK?? Futurama 's villainous " Mom " appears to reference the "Mom" in Doctor Detroit, in that her henchmen are all-clad in grey, double breasted, chauffers uniforms, much like the henchmen in Doctor Detroit.
A promised sequel was teased at the end of the movie and parodied the previous year's Wrath of Khan (The Doctor's nemesis was a ruthless Madame who went by "Mom"). Hard to believe he did something like this in the same year he had Trading Places , for my money the best comedy ever.
