  • The moral of the episode means that even if something is small, it has better quality than big things.
  • While Lumpy is attempting to escape from the killer tortoise, the music playing sounds similar to Jaws.
  • Lumpy's climb up the mountain to the last house on his route is a reference to the alleged motto of the U.S. Postal Service (in actuality, the U.S. Postal Service has no motto.
