    • When the pilot asked Amanda that is she in Rugrats he was (in a way) right. Amanda Bynes joined the Rugrats cast as Taffy.

    • The theme song music is actually from an old but popular Playstation 1 video game called, Spyro the Dragon. It was the music from the level, "Wizard's Peak."

    • We learn that Amanda's favorite actors are Kenan Thompson and Josh Server, perhaps because of Oh Yeah Cartoons.

    • This is the first appearance of Marcy Stimple.

    • This is the first appearance of Kyle Rostenson, not on his own skit.

    • Penelope didn't have her laptop like she usually does in future episodes.

    • Amanda states "My name is on the stage, IN 9 FOOT LETTERS!" but in a later episode, when Penelope steals the "A" it appears to be much, much, much smaller than 9 feet, and is around 3 or 4 feet tall.

    • When Drake is seen seated before he speaks, he has a red shirt with the blue jean vest over it, but when he speaks for the first time, he is only wearing the red shirt. When the camera goes back to him, he's wearing the vest over the red shirt again.
