• When Russell dies, his scream is the same as the one he makes when falling out of the burning building in the flash game Fire Escape.
  • This episode marks one of very few instances in the series of a character (in this case, Russell) dying in a cartoonish way rather than in a gruesome way.
  • This is the second episode of the TV series to have all of the three silent characters (Mime, The Mole, and Cro-Marmot) survive, the first being A Change of Heart.
  • This is the last episode of the TV series in which Lumpy and Handy die.
  • Handy dies because he has no hands for Sniffles to grab onto. Sniffles then sports Handy's trademark scowl. This marks one of the nine instances of Handy's scowl being done by another character. The others are Flaky in Rink HijinksRussell in Get Whale Soon and Snow Place to Go, Nutty in Nuttin' Wrong with CandyPop in Snip Snip Hooray!Lumpy in Hear Today, Gone Tomorrow (twice), and Petunia in I Nub You.
    • This also marks the only instance of Handy's lack of hands causing someone else to do his scowl.
  • This is Cuddles' only starring role in the TV series, not counting Autopsy Turvy (Double Whammy Part II).
  • This is the episode where Cuddles speaks clear English the most.
  • There are no female characters in this episode.
  • This episode marks the second time a character is seen wearing a hat and eyepatch like Russell's. The first time is with Mime in Mime to Five.
  • Lumpy seems to be the only band member to not know how to play his instrument. He is also the only one to have any merchandise (not counting group merchandise).
  • In the beginning of the episode, when the camera scrolls through Cuddles' merchandise, there is a picture of Lumpy with his signature on it, which serves as evidence that Cuddles must have been a fan of his band for quite some time.
  • This is the only TV episode in which Nutty survives a featuring role.
