Possible In-Joke in SoMI?

So surely we all remember the mushrooms that Guybrush stumbled across in Hell when he first entered the Giant Monkey Head in the Secret of Monkey Island. I was just watching the famous 1902 French silent film "A Trip to the Moon." There is a scene in the film in which the astronomers enter a cave on the moon, and like Hell in SoMI, it's filled with giant mushrooms. Does anyone else think/know if the mushrooms in hell were a nod to that scene from the film?
