- The sound clips from previous Season 2 episodes are reused for this episode.
- Ren getting his shot from “In The Army” is reused for when Ren tries to turn Kowalski over so he can burp him.
- Ren crying when realizing the consequences of not brushing his teeth in “Ren’s Toothache” is used for Ren crying onto Stimpy after his fake son is sent back to prison.
- A sound bite of Kowalski whimpering is used in “Lair Of The Lummox”.
- This is the first episode Stimpy has a maid apron. He wears an maid apron again in School Mates.
- This episode was going to be a 22 minute special episode, but due to the scene where Kowalski playing football with Ren and Stimpy being cut from the original version, this episode was pushed down to 11 minutes, and later paired up with “Out West”. It is unknown why the football scene was cut.
- In the scene where Ren’s fur is all gone, Ren is seen furless at first, but after, his fur comes back.
