!Notes:
* The Mayor of Beach City is introduced early in the episode.
* Also appearing is the older son of the fast food joint owner from "Frybo". He runs a blog on weird things and posts a picture of the cat-fingered Steven on it.

Added DiffLines:

* OffscreenMomentOfAwesome: Garnet, Amethyst, and Pearl sail off to fight a ''[[GeniusLoci living island'', which Garnet implies is to prevent an earthquake.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: When Amethyst demonstrates her shapeshifting powers, one of the forms she takes is the same large, hairy man that she uses for her WrestlingMonster persona in "Tiger Millionaire".


* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The stuff that goes down in this episode would ''never'' happen in later episodes of this show. The show has never even tried to return to this level of nightmare fuel.

Added DiffLines:

* IAmAMonster: [[BlackComedy "I'M AN ADORABLE CAT MONSTER!"]]


* BodyHorror: Steven's shapeshifting soon runs away from him, resulting in cat heads manifesting all over his body. It's so bad that, by the time he's entered the car wash, Steven's body is basically just [[BodyOfBodies a shifting mass of cats]] with barely anything of his normal self left. It is best described as a "shoggoth made of cats"

* DontThinkFeel: Amethyst's minimal instructions on changing form include "Think of what you wanna be, and then, just shake it out." and "You're too tense. Just feel it ''(eats food)'' Bio-rhythms, yo. "

* GoneHorriblyWrong: Amethyst tries to teach Steven to shapeshift, but doesn't give enough instructions on how to change back. He shapeshifts his fingers into cats, but it gets out of control and he starts turning into a [[BodyHorror fleshy mass of cat faces]].

* ChekhovsGun: Ronaldo's blog, "Keep Beach City Weird", is mentioned for the first time and would be important again in the episode of the same name.


* {{Foreshadowing}}:
** As Amethyst demonstrates numerous different forms, one of them is the Purple Puma disguise we'd see more of in "Tiger Millionaire".
** Steven asks how to change into a huge lion. A few episode later, he ''meets'' a huge lion.


* EverybodyLaughsEnding: Subverted. Steven tries to invoke this with some cat-related puns, but the Gems don't really get them.
