    Notes (28)

    • "Walking Small" is the only story that Plankton appears without Mr. Krabs.

    • A very brief clip from "Texas" was used in the November 7, 2008 episode of Late Night with Conan O'Brien. Patrick's line, "Do you think she knows The Muffin Man song?" was altered to say, "I did not have sexual relations with that woman" with Conan claiming that Bill Clinton stole that line from the show.

    • This episode can be found on the Game Boy Advance Video Cartridge SpongeBob SquarePants: Volume 3.

    • This is the first time in the series that SpongeBob's friends make a party for Sandy.

    • Mrs. Puff doesn't appear in "Walking Small".

    Trivia (28)

    • Look Closely: When the eel threw the ice cream at SpongeBob, it landed at his nose, and he got ice cream on his nose, but when the scene turns to Plankton, he doesn't have ice cream on his nose.

    • Why did the eel and the fish take the ice creams without paying for them first?

    • How did Sandy thought to go back to Texas if the only knowed way of getting out of the sea is through the island which is in the other side?

    • How can Sandy hear Patrick if the bus was very fast and Sandy was long away?

    • Look Closely: In "Walking Small," for about 3 seconds while Plankton is talking to SpongeBob about being more assertive and SpongeBob is licking the ice cream off his hand, it looks just like he's giving us the finger.

    Allusions (5)

    • Episode Title: Walking Small This could be similar to the movie Walking Tall.

    • When Plankton was speaking inside SpongeBob's mouth, it's an allusion to the movie called Shining.

    • SpongeBob: The stars at night are dull and dim... A parody of the song "Deep in the Heart of Texas" which lyrics actually go like this: The stars at night are big and bright...

    • Sandy: I wanna go home... At the end of the Texas Song, Sandy has a deep voice that sounds a bit like western singer Johnny Cash's voice.

    • Patrick: Get a dog, little longy! Get a dog! The reference was to "Get along, little doggy! Get along!"
