  • Merlock also appears in the Donald Duck: Goin' Qu@ckers! video game.

  • A doll of Zummi Gummi from "Adventures of the Gummi Bears" can be seen in Webby's room.

  • Merlock's counterpart, Dijon, is the same Dijon from the 2-part "Golden Goose" episode.

  • When part 2, "Wrongway in Ronguay", was shown in syndicated re-runs (such as on Toon Disney), the scene where Dewey shorts out the robot pilot by breaking its power cord apart was edited so that it looks as though the robot shorts out simply from Louie smashing the fire extinguisher against it. Also, in "Don't Give Up the Ship", two lines both said while Bigtime lights matches are also cut. These cut scenes were fortunately restored for the DVD set.

  • First appearance of Webby.

  • All five episodes from this Special are included on the Volume Two DVD
