I'll take your word for it. I'm not as familiar with the original comics as the cartoon (having only read most of the comics once if that), but I was aware of some allusions and didn't know if there were more.

I still think the general distaste for the cartoon and Mick's allusions to that canon are at least as big a factor in how his "Easter Eggs" are judged as the frequency and ham-fistedness of the things. Vol. 2 had a ton of them and the outright lifting of dialogue so frequently was irksome, but the ongoing hasn't been as bad with an average of maybe one or two an issue and not all of them being so obvious.

The sad thing about this is that I think Mick really was learning from his mistakes, and while he had a lot of trouble in the latest issues keeping his storylines tight, they were at least reasonably entertaining stories except for the few pages of human interaction.
