* RealityEnsues: A mild case, but as Granny Smith points out in her story, crops don't grow overnight, no matter how talented a farmer you are. As a result, Granny Smith and her family started to run out of food shortly after they set up their farm, and had she not gone into the Everfree Forest and found the Zap apples, chances are they all would've starved.

* FriendToBugs: Granny Smith is ''extra'' friendly to the bees, as shown in the page image; she calls them by name, gives them flowers, and allows them to land on her. It's revealed that doing so makes their honey sweet when mixed with the Zap Apples, but the 'extra' implies that she is nice to them anyways.

* SeriousBusiness: Granny Smith has this gem in the episode's beginning: "There's a whooole mess of steps in this process and you gots to get each one of 'em right... *dramatic zoom/head turn* '''OR ''NO ZAP APPLE JAM!'''''"
** It's eventually revealed that Zap Apples played a direct role in the founding of Ponyville; also, considering that Granny Smith was the one who discovered them in the first place, it makes sense that she'd treat it with such seriousness. Doesn't make it any less funny though.
* ShoutOut: Apple Bloom wears a bonnet similar to Laura Ingalls from ''Literature/LittleHouseOnThePrairie'' and gets called by her nickname "Half Pint."

* DevelopmentGag: Young Granny Smith's design is quite similar to an [[http://fyre-flye.deviantart.com/gallery/?catpath=scraps#/d48bi2x alternate version of Applejack]] Lauren Faust drew for the show's pitch-bible.



** Big Macintosh's name may not have been an obvious reference but now with him harvesting ''[[AppleMacintosh rainbow-colored apples]]''... (Granted, they don't have any bites in them.)
** The design of the Timberwolves may have been inspired by the [[http://derpiboo.ru/214386 Timbermares from Magic the Gathering]].
