  • The Little Prince speaks a few words of French when hit by a newspaper, despite previous claims that French was a dead language.
  • The voice actor for Dwight left to do a film in China before the show was finalised, and didn't return until 10 months later. This meant that the episode couldn't be improved completely until their return, thus it was aired in the fifth season.
  • Cubert is reading a "Radioactive Man" comic from The Simpsons.
