• This is one of the few episodes where Cub is seen without Pop.
  • The flowers Lumpy holds are the same kind of flowers as in Giggles' Smoochie. Also, Giggles' sneeze in this episode is similar to her sneeze in her Smoochie.
  • Cuddles' hospital room is the same as Toothy's in Mime and Mime Again. It even has the same drawing of a rainbow on the wall in the background. The only differences is the lack of a window, the bed is on the right side of the wall, and the interior of the room is wider.
  • This is one of the four instances where Cuddles gets split in half, and his intestines are the only thing holding him together. The other three are Mime to Five, See You Later, Elevator and Wingin' It.

    This was Cuddles' first time and unfortunately, it won't be his last time.

  • The Mole is in the audience in this episode, which is probably a joke since he is blind.
  • This is the only episode in Internet Season 2 in which Toothy and Petunia survive.
  • This is one of the few episodes where all of the featuring and appearing characters survive while the starring characters die.
  • After Lumpy kicks the dead bird away and prepares for his box-trick, he clearly says "And now, I need a volunteer."
  • The YouTube thumbnail spoils Cuddles' death.
  • This episode is the first time where a character commits suicide, it will happen later to Petunia in
    Wishy Washy.
  • It’s likely that the birthday shown in this episode is Cuddles as he is the only character who is not wearing a birthday hat (besides Cub, The Mole and Generic Tree Friends; The former likely due to already wearing a hat and the latter due to his older age) and this episode is centered around him.
  • Lumpy will wear his magician outfit again in the HTF online game, Tightrope-A-Dope and it's older version Lumpy Artist.
