• This is the first TV episode that is mainly focused on The Mole, despite him co-starring with Russell.
  • Sniffles has a Splendid figurine in his workroom, referencing the fact that he is a fan of Splendid.
  • This episode marks the second time that Sniffles is seen without his glasses on. The first is Tongue Twister Trouble.
  • This is the only known episode where Russell speaks clear English. In every other episode, he either screams or "Yars".
    • If one listens closely, Russell says "I'm sorry, I'm very sorry" after accidently bumping into The Mole
  • The dog Lumpy gives to The Mole resembles Whistle from Doggone It.
  • This episode shows that Nutty seeing brightly colored objects as candy is a physical problem rather than a mental problem. He has previously been seen mistaking brightly colored objects (Christmas lights) for candy in Stealing the Spotlight.
  • This is the first time The Mole dies without it being caused at least partially by another character.
  • To date, this is the only regular episode in which Russell has starred and survived.
  • This is the third (and the last) episode where a character is killed by a lawn mower. The other two are Chip Off the Ol' Block (Cub), and Remains to be Seen (Russell, Lifty, Shifty, and Generic Tree Friends).
  • There are no female characters in this episode.
  • This is one of the few episodes where Cuddles survives.
  • This is one of the few episodes where the directions of Russell's eye-patch and hook do not change.
  • An ant farm can be seen in Sniffles' house, which is ironic considering that he is a predator of ants. It could be possible that he is studying the ants to find their weaknesses to catch them and eat them more easily. It could also be a possibility that Sniffles keeps the ants as a "backup snack" in case he fails and survives to catch ants.

    To think Sniffles would own an ant farm. Actually, it kinda makes sense.

  • When Lumpy calls Russell in, he clearly says "Who's next?"
  • Russell may be right-handed, judging by him using his hook, which is on his right hand, to put the contact in.
  • This is one of the few TV episodes that focuses on a specific part of the body (eyes). The others are Hear Today, Gone Tomorrow (ears), A Change of Heart (heart), and Chew Said a Mouthful (jaw).
  • The killer turtle (Toothy's Tortoise) from Letter Late than Never and Junk in the Trunk is seen in this episode.
  • Even though he is already dead by the time it happens, Sniffles is somewhat posthumously responsible for Nutty's death due to his airplane still flying.
  • All the characters in this episode except for Handy, Cuddles, and Lumpy are shown to have vision problems while a lot of Toothy's death involves his eyes.
  • This episode shows that Sniffles is nearsighted when his glasses are cut in half.
  • This is one of the few episodes that briefly shows what Sniffles looks like without his glasses.
  • Russell has an interest for kites in this episode alone.
  • The YouTube thumbnail for Part 2 spoils Nutty's injury before death.
  • In the waiting room at the optometrist's, there is a picture of human-like eye.
  • What is ironic at the beginning of this episode is the fact that everything in The Mole's house requires vision: a painting of a palm tree, two giant bookshelves, a magazine rack, a pair of binoculars, and a telescope.
  • The eyeball Lumpy pulls out of the bio-hazard bin is briefly seen in A Hole Lotta Love amongst Cuddles' garbage.
  • This is one of the rare times where a character's (Toothy) brain is exposed while he/she remains alive.
  • The second half of this episode has an age restriction on YouTube.
