- Animation error: During the first scene, while Principal Prickly is talking about the science fair, Prickly's legs are missing.
- Becky Benson shares the first name with T.J.'s older sister, Becky Detweiler. Coincidentally, Becky Benson is voiced by Tara Strong, who would voice T.J.'s sister, Becky, in Recess: Taking the Fifth Grade (due to scheduling conflicts with Melissa Joan Hart).
- The song Menlo was whistling at the entry table was "Rescue Aid Society" from the 1977 Disney film The Rescuers.
- This episode marks the only appearance of Becky Benson.
- When asking Gus, Vince, and Mikey about their science fair projects, T.J. calls them Gus-atoa, Vince-uvius, and Mount St. Mikey, respectively, a reference to three of the most famous volcanoes in the world, Krakatoa, Vesuvius, and Mount St. Helens.
