    • This episode is slightly tributed in the spin-off anime Demashitaa! Powerpuff Girls Z!

    • A clip from this episode is shown in the movie, A Mighty Wind.

    • Villain(s): Him.

    • The final location in the hunt is given by the Mayor who states that the global coordinates of an intersection is at 32 degrees North and 212 degrees West (or 148 East). This puts Townsville in the Pacific Ocean, approximately 400 hundred miles east-by-southeast from Japan's largest island.

    • Before the trains collide, a person in a car complains about having to wait on the trains while the gate lowers in front of the car. Seconds later, the trains are stopped and the car is mysteriously nowhere to be seen.

    • Just before Bubbles threw the last apple, watch very carefully and you'll see what looks like a worm in that apple.

    • As Bubbles threw apples at the monster, you can hear the full splat as it hits it. But apples are hard and they can't splat.

    • After Blossom got a 10 in her math exam, she shouted "WHAT!" Then Buttercup said "Huh," but Blossom's mouth moved into the word instead.

    • The mayor's deduction of where 32 N by 212 W is (Townsville) brings the idea that Monster Isle (from "Super Zeroes") could be Japan, despite all the Godzilla films.

    • The SAT riddle required the girls to score 100 points between them. In real life, the score range on any given section of the SAT is still 200-800 points.

    • The Twin Ms. Keanes: Truth/Lies
      One of the clones of Ms. Keane always tells the truth, and the other one always lies. This segment of the episode is a parody on the scene from the movie, Labyrinth, which featured two castle guards: one who always told the truth, and one who always lied.
