- Executive Meddling: The fake phone number displayed at the end was originally 1-800-BAD-SONG which at the time turned out to be a real number for a limousine service in Brooklyn, New York.

In Spring 2004, the Brothers Chaps changed the number to 1-800-555-SBSINGS.
- Screwed by the Lawyers: When the short was released to DVD, the song The Cheat played for Strong Mad had to be changed to "Hot Cross Buns". At the time of its release, the original song, "Happy Birthday to You!", was not in the public domain.
- Technology Marches On: Audio cassettes had already experienced a drop in popularity at the time of this short. They left the mainstream by the early 2000s and usage all but stopped by the end of that decade.
