The Loop (TV)

- 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 Hijinks, Russell in Get Whale Soon and Snow Place to Go, Nutty in Nuttin' Wrong with Candy, Pop 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.
- Character revelation: Handy is revealed to be epileptic, as he suffers a seizure due to the flashing lights.
- On the other hand, Cuddles has no reaction to the flashing lights, even though he is shown to have epilepsy in Seize the Day. It is possible Cuddles did not suffer a seizure in this episode because he was missing his right eye (as obstructing one eye can reduce the risk of suffering an epileptic seizure) or perhaps he was occupied in changing the controls and not paying any attention to the flashing lights.
- This episode may suggest that Cuddles has trypanophobia (fear of needles), as he panics before The Mole collects his blood.
- However, this might be just fear of pain.
- This episode marks one of the many instances of a character making "puppy eyes". The other instances are Lumpy in Class Act, Get Whale Soon, Stealing the Spotlight, Letter Late than Never, All In Vein and Aw, Shucks!; Toothy in Better Off Bread; Nutty in Icy You; Petunia and Giggles in Stealing the Spotlight; Russell in Get Whale Soon; Lifty in Easy For You to Sleigh; Fliqpy in Hear Today, Gone Tomorrow; Flaky in Ski Ya, Wouldn't Wanna Be Ya!; and Sniffles in Wrath of Con.
- The YouTube thumbnails spoil the following:
- When The Mole injects Cuddles with chair stuffing, Cuddles can be heard saying a muffled "fuck". This marks one of the three instances of a character swearing. The other two are Lumpy in Every Litter Bit Hurts and Flippy in Autopsy Turvy (Double Whammy Part II).
- The title of this episode means to get oneself in a difficult situation.
- The moral means that the person who provides the money for something has the right to determine how it is spent.
- Parts of the song the band is playing are similar to "Are You Gonna Be My Girl" by Jet.
- Sniffles' death is similar to his death in Tongue in Cheek, Giggles' death in Double Whammy Part I and Nutty's death in Stealing the Spotlight.
- This episode was released on TV along with I've Got You Under My Skin and Junk in the Trunk. When the conglomeration of these three episodes was aired on YouTube, the alternate title for it was "Twelfth Night". Lumpy appears in all three and dies twice.Happy Tree Friends TV Season 1 Trivia
