The Loop (TV)
Do you like this video?
- This is the only regular solo episode to have the character that appears (in this case Lumpy) survive.
- This is the second most viewed and commented episode of the series, behind Eyes Cold Lemonade.
- This is the highest rated Lumpy episode.
- At an event, Warren Graff has said that the noise that is made when Lumpy hits his leg with the spoon and rock is the moment that made him cringe the most.
- A made-up "teaser" was made for this episode, in a manner similar to 127 Hours (see the video above).
- Truffles makes a short cameo in this "teaser" for a few seconds.
- There is a 1950 Donald Duck cartoon with the same name, which stars Chip and Dale.
- This is one of the seven episodes where a character (Lumpy) is being forced to cause pain to him/herself, the others being Flaky in Ski Ya, Wouldn't Wanna Be Ya!, Disco Bear in Easy Comb, Easy Go, and Toothy in Eye Candy and An Inconvenient Tooth. Lumpy also causes pain to himself in The Chokes on You and I've Got You Under My Skin.
- This is one of a few episodes where one of the characters suffers throughout most of the episode.
- There are no female characters in this episode.
- This is one of three episodes where only one animal (anthropomorphic or not) appears. The other two are Nuttin' Wrong with Candy and YouTube 101: Subscriptions (in which there are other characters, but Cuddles is the only physically seen animal).
- This episode is one of seven instances of a character crying during his/her injury due to the degree of pain. The other six instances are Lumpy in The Chokes on You, Toothy in Eye Candy and Brake the Cycle, Flaky in Ski Ya, Wouldn't Wanna Be Ya!, Petunia in Read 'em and Weep, and Sniffles in Tongue in Cheek.
- The YouTube thumbnail spoils the ending, as well as Lumpy's injury.
- To go "out on a limb" means to be in a position that might be dangerous.
- The moral means the more powerful and successful people are, the more they suffer when they experience defeat and disaster.
- This episode references the movie Saw, when Lumpy has to cut one of his limbs off to get out.
- This episode closely resembles the 2010 biographical film "127 Hours", in which a mountaineer named Aron Ralston gets his arm trapped underneath a boulder while rock climbing in Utah, and is forced to cut his arm off to free himself.
- This is the last episode in which Rhode Montijo has writing credits. From this episode onwards, most of the internet episodes are written by Kenn Navarro, Warren Graff and Ken Pontac.
- There are a few titles that were dropped in favor for Out on a Limb. The other examples include Knock On Wood, Just Fir You, and Pineing for You.
