  •  In U.S., the episode's title is called "Stupid Human Tricks". Why is that so? The similar situation happened when some European countries aired the 1985 version of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles". Instead of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles", they changed it into "Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles" because the word "ninja" is considered to be a violent connotation to children.
  • ...and why does Marathon changed the episode's title? It looks like they're unaware that the word "stupid" is said many times in previous episodes.
  • Wendy asks Danny to take care of her dog Matisse again? I thought she's angry at him at the last scene in  "Dog Daze".
  • Mark has a pet gecko named Leopold. Leopold is a German name meaning "brave".
  • ...and does Leopold seem familiar? Yes, he looks like Green Jeans and Danny's lizard form in "Lizard Tails".
  • The school's stage props from the episode "Acting Out" are still there. 
  • Cathy says that fleas in Rhapsodia are like royalty.
  • Mark says to Morag that his hair color is "span gold". It's actually light blond.
  • Cathy says that she's a bit animal charmer back in Rhapsodia.
  • Kreepengleek biscuits has a side effect to humans who eat those - their behavior will change into an alien animal. Cathy explains that those biscuits are for aliens only and can be sold to Rhapsodian Zoo Gift Shop.
  • ...and "Haven't I seen that biscuit before?". It's from the episode "Here Comes The Bride" - At the canteen, Cathy took that rectangular biscuit from Sam's plate. 
  • Principal Rollins doesn't address Mark's surname.
