    Notes (19)

    • This episode was the only episode to originally air on primetime. It was meant to showcase the upcoming Saturday morning series.

    • There goal for reviving the show is to make something unique and new for the public while honoring the connection to the original without copying the whole thing. This explains why the show had several changes such as animalizing The Chief (Double Q) and Goldflipper (Yellow Pinkie) into a cape buffalo with a calabash pipe and a sea lion with a love of gold instead of two men with balding hairlines. A new original character, Penny, was introduced as Secret's love interest. Secret's design has been modified and his hat has been changed as well as turning him from a clumsy screwball into a serious, suave and smart spy with all gadgets in his coat and making Morocco from a Peter Lorre-like chauffeur into a childish, clumsy and funloving sidekick/assistant with a new color scheme, sunglasses and a brother named Scirocco Mole. The show also falls under the villain of the week formula.

    • Fred Seibert, last president of HB at the time, ordered Donovan to revive a classic HB show as a backup segment for 2SD as the producers felt 3 2SD cartoons were not good. He chose Secret Squirrel because it was his favorite show as a kid.

    • Beginning with this episode, the show is now called "Super Secret Secret Squirrel" and airs as part of another show entitled "2 Stupid Dogs."

    • This episode originally aired between the 2 Stupid Dogs episodes "Door Jam" and "Where's the Bone."

    • This episode originally aired between the 2 Stupid Dogs episodes "Cornflakes" and "Home is Where Your Head is."

    • Secret: I've seen better singers on sewing machines.

      Coincidentally, Secret's voice actor Jess Harnell is a professional singer and has his own band, Rock Sugar.

    • This episode originally aired between the 2 Stupid Dogs episodes "Vegas Buffet" and "Love in the Park."

    Trivia (13)

    • When the truck hits the Chief at the end, we hear the truck crash offscreen with a huge smashing sound. But when we see the result of the accident, the truck has no damage at all.

    • Morocco is given his first assignment in this episode.

    • The sign on the side of the truck that hit Secret reads: Sheeps 'B' us How's my driving? Call 1 800 EAT SHEEP

    • Penny is "Agent .01" in this episode.

    • Look closely in the undercover pub where Secret is hanging out and you'll notice portraits of other Hanna-Barbera animal crime fighting stars like Scooby-Doo, Ricochet Rabbit, Atom Ant and Dynomutt, background character cameos by Undercover Elephant, Mumbly and Hong Kong Phooey (the latter two's pictures are also displayed), and the speaking cameos of Snooper and Blabber (whose portraits are seen as well).

    • Yogi and Booboo make a cameo in this episode as well as the 2 Stupid Dogs.

    • When the Platypus has his Descrambling Ray set on a timer at the beginning, we first see it counting down the seconds at the normal rate, but right when it counts from ten to zero (and scrambles our heroes), suddenly it counts down at warp speed!

    • We learn that only Secret Squirrel can see through his hat.
