• Ever since the episode's release in 2013, many people have speculated that Lammy had survived her injuries because she was capable of walking around, even with her brain sliced through. It wasn't until two years later that Kenn Navarro confirmed that she died.
  • Lumpy is the only character seen in the sneak peek.
  • This is the second time Lumpy works in construction, the first time being Concrete Solution. However, in this episode he wears a helmet similar to Handy's.
    S4E2 All Work Lumpy

    A smaller version of Handy's helmet.

  • Lumpy is the third character to wear a construction helmet. The other two are Handy and The Mole (Milk Pong, second ending).
  • Truffles appears behind a tree on the far left when Lumpy goes to lunch.
  • This is the first time Lammy has a featuring role.
  • This is the only episode where Lammy appears with no other female characters.
  • This is the first episode that Sniffles and Nutty interact with Lammy,
  • Considering his intelligence, Sniffles should have at least known that the playground wasn't suitable for being played on.
  • As of this episode, the swirly lollipop on Nutty's face changes slightly in appearance. It's now more detailed and has less colors.
  • This is the second time Sniffles loses his lower body, the first was in I've Got You Under My Skin.
  • This is one of the rare times where a character's (Lammy) brain is exposed while s/he remains alive. Other examples include Sniffles in Take a Hike, Giggles in I've Got You Under My Skin and Flaky in Wipe Out!.

Cultural References

  • The title of this episode is part of a famous quote from the 1980 horror movie The Shining: "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy".
  • The moral means to leave something alone; avoid attempting to correct, fix, or improve what is already sufficient.



  • This episode might have taken place after Spin Fun Knowin' Ya.
  • The same merry-go-round from Spin Fun Knowin' Ya is seen. The only difference is that this time, it's broken (maybe because Lumpy spun it too fast once again, due to the fact that he did it in Spin Fun Knowin' Ya and Blast from the Past). Thus, this is the second episode to reference it (after Blast from the Past).

Production Notes

  • Like You're Kraken Me Up, this episode was announced when Buns of Steal was still in production.
  • Michael Lipman and Liz Stuart's voices are sampled for their respective characters, Nutty and Sniffles.
