  • When Disco Bear notices the burnt piece of hair on his head, his mail disintegrates.
  • It is unknown how Disco Bear climbed down his treehouse without dying the same way Toothy did, though it could be possible that he may have taken another exit.
  • This episode marks Disco Bear's last starring role until A Vicious Cycle, nearly seven years later.
  • When Cuddles' mouth fills with hair, his tongue looks similar to the tongue of a penguin.
  • Next to The Mole's aftershave is a bottle of poison and a bottle of bowling ball polish.

He looks a little strange, right?

  • This episode reveals how Disco Bear looks like when his hair is wet.
  • This episode marks one of the few instances of Lifty and Shifty making money honestly (unless they had stolen the hair-growth formulas, which seems likely).
  • Disco Bear sports Lifty and Shifty's trademark grin as he drives away in their van.
  • This is one of the only four episodes Lifty and Shifty survive together in. The other three are Ipso Fatso, Concrete Solution and Happy New Year.
  • This is one of the eight episodes in which a character (Disco Bear) is forced to cause pain to themself, the others being Lumpy in Out on a Limb, The Chokes on You, and I've Got You Under My Skin, Flaky in Ski Ya, Wouldn't Wanna Be Ya!, Petunia in Wishy Washy and Toothy in Eye Candy and An Inconvenient Tooth.
  • This is the only TV episode that has a large amount of characters (17) but only has a small portion of them die (5).
  • All of the characters who die in this episode also die in Ipso Fatso, which coincidentally also stars Disco Bear.
  • Flippy, Cro-Marmot, and Splendid are the only characters that do not appear in this episode. They are also the only three characters that did not appear in Who's to Flame? and Aw, Shucks!, the two other episodes with a large amount of characters.
    • However, the latter episodes have almost all the characters die.
    • Lammy and Mr. Pickels don't count, as the two do not appear until 2010.
  • If one looks closely when Nutty's cotton candy melts, one can see that it melts into the shape of a heart.
  • The music playing in the background when Disco Bear takes a shower is similar to the music in his Smoochie.
  • It seems that Disco Bear is the only one to notice Nutty's addiction to candy in a regular episode, when he flees in horror when Nutty bites off his cotton candy afro, in addition to throwing his stick of cotton candy to lure Nutty away (though this may have been unintentional).
  • This is the first (and, to date, only) episode in which Disco Bear is seen bald.
  • This is the 19th and last episode of the first season of the TV series in which Pop and Cub appear.
  • Disco Bear is indirectly responsible for every death in this episode.
  • The YouTube thumbnail for Part 1 spoils Lumpy's injury.
  • This episode marks second time a character has alcohol splashed on an open part of their body. The first time was in Mime and Mime Again with Toothy.
  • The scene where Disco Bear plucks the hair from his eye is animated in CGI, making this the only episode to use 3D animation.

Cultural References

  • The title of this episode is a pun on the phrase "easy come, easy go", which means that one thinks that they can achieve something with very little effort, but it will not last.
  • The moral means to not argue about very small differences or unimportant details.
  • The music that plays in the barber shop resembles the song "I Wanna Be Like You" from the 1967 Disney animated movie The Jungle Book.
  • Lumpy puts on aftershave and screams a la Kevin Callister from the 1990 film Home Alone.
  • The hair growing on Disco Bear's eyes is a reference to a scene from The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, where King Neptune's servant accidentally sprays Hair in a Can in his master's eyes instead of his bald head.
