  • Notes (4)

    • Pete's radio station gives us a clue to the location of the stateless Wellsville; since the station's call letters (WART) begin with a "W," the town must be east of the Mississippi River (were he west of the river, the call letters would begin with a "K").

    • 'Summerbaby's' line "every drop of sex" was changed to "every time I guess" by the show's producers, for obvious reasons.

    • You can also have the same favorite song as Pete. The song, listed as "Summerbaby," is available on the CD Music From the Adventures of Pete & Pete from Polaris. There's a lot more to the song than heard in the episode.

    • The band that Pete sees originally playing the song is none other than Polaris, the band that performed all music on the show as well as the theme song.

    Trivia (3)

    • Little Pete is left handed, but plays the guitar in a right handed fashion.

    • Pete's radio station gives us a clue to the location of the stateless Wellsville; since the station's call letters (WART) begin with a "W," the town must be east of the Mississippi River (were he west of the river, the call letters would begin with a "K").

    • In Pete's radio station, his mixer isn't hooked up to anything.

    Allusions (2)

    • The title of this episode is a reference to The Beatle's film, "Hard Day's Night".

    • Mrs. Fingerwood: Smells like math spirit! This quote is a reference to the song Smells Like Teen Spirit by NIRVANA.
