• 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 is the second time a character gets an epileptic seizure, the first being Cuddles in Seize the Day. Strangely, Cuddles doesn't seem to get a seizure at all unlike how he did in Seize the Day where he is affected by the flashing lights of the video game.
  • This is one of very few instances in the series where a character (Russell) dies in a cartoonish, rather than gruesome, fashion.
  • 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 was in 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 gives Handy's trademark scowl. This is one of the nine instances where Handy's scowl is 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 is also the only instance where Handy's lack of hands causes someone else to do the scowl.
  • This is Cuddles' only starring role in the TV series (Autopsy Turvy was not a real episode).
  • This is the episode where Cuddles speaks clear English the most.
  • There are no female characters in this episode.
  • This is 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 not to know how to play his instrument. Also, he is 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 for quite some time.
  • This is the only TV episode where Nutty survives a featuring role.
