- The Other Darrin: Tress MacNeal voices Manjula in the episode. A deleted scene on the DVD box set shows that Jan Hooks did record the voice for the episode, making it possible that Tress had to redo the vocals if Hooks was unavailible.
- Reality Subtext: The episode's Chalkboard Gag had Bart writing, "I will never lie about being cancelled again." This was done to combat Matt Groening's rumor that the series was ending after its thirteenth season.
