    Trivia (5)

    • When Dee Dee says that he better go up and talk to Alfie and Goo says he better go with him and Dee Dee says why he's my brother and Goo says don't remind him, it's bad enough he didn't make the team, it seems unusual that he would say that in front of the parents because in past episodes he would never put Dee Dee down in front of them, he is always known to suck up to them.

    • In the scene where Alfie, Goo and Deedee try to scrape together money to buy a new rabbit, Deedee pulls out the Fuzzy Wuzzy board game box where he has a secret money stash. In between shots, the box is on Deedee's bed and back on the shelf and back on Deedee's bed again.

    • When Dee Dee is playing basketball with Alfie and Goo, he plays very horribly as if he never played before, but 2 episodes ago in "Basketball Tryouts" he made the school junior basketball team.

    • This episode was obviously aired out of order. Dee Dee gets his head shaved, but he has hair again in the episodes that follow.

    • At the end of the episode, they have bloopers of Donnel and his Mom messing up the famous catch phrase Don't hold your breath.
