Nutty's therapy in Happy Tree Friends: False Alarm (episode) appears to have worn off in this episode. In the events between False Alarm and this episode, Nutty has acted very calm, but here he is back to his old self; jittering uncontrollably, stealing things that aren't his, and eating objects that look like candy.
Flaky, Pop, and Cub's deaths were spoiled before this episode was released.
This is the second of the Still Alive episodes to be released for free. It was uploaded on Mondo's website on June 23rd, 2017.
The episode was released on YouTube the day after.
Michael Lipman's voice was sampled for the voice of Nutty for most of the episode.
Lori Gee's voice was sampled for the voice of Cub.
Warren Graff's voice was sampled for the voice of Toothy.
Aubrey Ankrum's voice was sampled for the voice of Pop.
In the writer's session video, Flaky was briefly mentioned as being the character who gets the ember melted into their eye, though this ends up happening to Cuddles in the actual episode.
There are a few major and minor differences between the storyboard and the episode. In the storyboard:
The scene with three fireworks popping in the sky and Cuddles digging in the box for another firework wasn't drawn.
In the storyboard, the manhole cover was suppose to slice Flaky vertically in half.
Lammy and Mr. Pickels were originally supposed to appear in the episode. Lammy was going to have her face blown up from the flames of a firework. This was cut due to budget issues and time constraints.
