Production Notes

  • Ellen Connell and Dana Belben both voiced Giggles in this episode.
  • The episode originally (as it appeared on the internet) began with Mime walking on-screen and approaching The Mole's house. On the Third Strike DVD, however, the creators began the episode by silently panning over the area to show various other characters doing their own Halloween related activities. Once the pan is finished, the episode continues as normal, with Mime walking on screen and the episode's music starting up. Since August 2008, the DVD version has been available on the official website and iTunes.
    • In the HD version, however, the panning sequence has organ music playing in the background rather than being silent.
  • According to the Follow the Yellow Rabbit feature on the Third Strike DVD, one of the animators drew pumpkins with his eyes closed to simulate blind carving.
