As is mentioned in this episode's description, this episode marks a new season (the 4th season) of Happy Tree Friends.
Despite many fans speculating that Giggles cheats on Cuddles, this is possibly proven false in this episode, as Cuddles is seen on the beach with no apparent problem with Giggles and Russell being together, and even cheers when he thinks that Giggles is kissing Lumpy. It is possible that this episode takes place before or after their relationship.
Russell is indirectly responsible for Giggles, Cub, and his own death.
This episode makes Giggles the first character to die in the 4th season.
The trailer for this episode has scenes arranged differently than in the actual episode. The trailer shows the first scene of the actual episode, yet Lumpy instantly discovers the injured Russell and quickly goes into the sea to rescue him, without him decapitating Petunia or Russell's boat sinking being shown.
The background in this episode is similar to the background in Water Way to Go (albeit with a blue sky and sea instead of a peach sky and a purple sea).
Like real squids, the giant squid shows intelligence, manipulating the severed heads of Giggles and Cub to lure its targets, Russell and Lumpy, respectively.
This is the second time that Pop brings Cub to a beach, only for it to go wrong. Ironically, in the latter episode, Pop buries Cub, while in this episode, Cub buries Pop.
This is the first time that Lammy is seen with Cuddles.
This is the first time that Lammy is seen with non-female character.
This is one of the few episodes where the video thumbnail for both the Mondo website and the YouTube upload are virtually identical. Both thumbnails spoil Russell's death.
This is also one of the few episodes to be released on YouTube and Mondo at the same date.
All deaths except for Russell's involve decapitation.
This is one of the times when Pop is not responsible for Cub's death.
This is the first time since The Chokes on You that Lammy and Mr. Pickels do not kill anybody.
All the characters that are decapitated in this episode are voiced by Ellen Connell and Lori Gee.
