• Since Giggles appears to enjoy dancing with Disco Bear, it is possible that her and Petunia's deaths/injuries in this episode is the cause of their usual attitude towards him.
  • Despite this being his first appearance, this is the only Season 1 episode in which Disco Bear appears and stars.
  • In one frame of Petunia getting electrocuted one can see a tea cup in Petunia's left eye.

  • This is one of only three episodes that Disco Bear stars in and survives. The others are A Change of Heart and Easy Comb, Easy Go.

  • When Giggles hands Disco Bear a cookie, she can be clearly heard saying, "You want a cookie?".
