This episode indicates the end of the hiatus of Happy Tree Friends. The series was previously on a long hiatus following the episode See You Later, Elevator. Due to this and several HTF Break episodes with the message Happy Tree Friends is Dead, many fans feared that the series was cancelled.
There are no female characters in this episode.
This is the only episode in the entire HTF canon in which one of the raccoon brothers dies while the other survives.
Like most episodes, the YouTube thumbnail spoils a character's (Shifty's) death.
Shifty's death is similar to Giggles' injury in Butter Me Up.
Butter Me Up is also the break before this one.
Her injury is also similar to Paul Taylor's death from the 1988 remake of "The Blob".
