    • (After eating his first worm) Tommy: It doesn't taste too much like chocolate spaghetti, but it dances all the way down.

    • Chuckie: All this for what?! HUH! A MOOSE?! I don't see any moose. (just as a shadowy figure creeps up behind him) Where's the moose, Tommy? Where? Where? Tommy: (Points behind him) There!

    • Mike: We've been had! The little thief nabbed the rubies! Bob: Come on. He's just a baby. Mike: Yeah, a baby impersonator. Bob: What? He had his partner waitin' outside in the getaway stroller?

    Trivia (7)

    • There are some animation errors in this episode. First, look at Chuckie's shirt. To begin with, the planet on his shirt is usually yellow with red rings around it. During most of this episode, the planet was red with yellow rings. However, the planet turned yellow with red rings when Tommy, Phil, and Lil find Chuckie in a mud hole (they unwittingly abandoned him when they continue to look for the moose). After they got him out, it turned back to red with yellow rings. Then, after they broke the spigot on the water hose, the planet was "blinking" red and yellow, then yellow and red, then red and yellow again, before sticking with a red planet with yellow rings.

    • Goof: In the episode "Moose Country" when Phil and Lil are fighting over how to catch the moose, there is a scene where they are screaming "hole" and "net" at each other but neither of their mouths are moving.

    • Goof: In a couple scenes on the episode "Moose Country" Chuckie can be seen with a full set of teeth, meanwhile he only has two.

    • Goof: In "Ruthless Tommy" when Bob and Mike are bringing Tommy back, the grass outside the Pickle's house is pink.

    • Goof: In "Ruthless Tommy" when Bob and Mike leave to get Tommy milk, the stuff on the table is gone then when Tommy looks around, the stuff is back again.
