    Trivia (49)

    • Maurecia's voice has been lower, and hard to understand, due to her voice high pitched. Only episode to have Maurecia's voice changed.

    • Mrs. Jewls: Genella Porta, Genella Porta. Genella and Porta means window and door in Portuguese.

    • Some of the main characters are different than in the book. In the book Dana was covered with Mosquito bites and was not intelligent or rule-following. Myron wasn't fat and was already Class president. Maurecia never, and I mean NEVER, wore rollerskates. Todd is the same, though.

    • 1. In the begining of the episode when Kiddswatter climbs through the window the is a painting of a ship in the back round 2. when Kiddswatter walks Shari has her eyes open and there are no pupals or corneas 3. when Louis is putting the trophies on the shelf he is putting duplacates of the trophies but you can only see one copy of the trophies

    • At the top of the stairs in "Oh Great Leader", Maurecia's roller skates are missing their wheels for a moment.

    • In the book, Todd lacking a pet brought in his baby brother. In the show Todd says he had a pet goldfish named King Arthur (that died). In syndication to the show, Myron brought in his baby brother.

    • In the book Stephen's pet orange name is Fido. In the show it's Red, while Fido is the baby brother that was brought in.

    • We learn that Sharie sleeps at school because she does extreme sports with her family after school and gets sleep at school.

    • Title: Pull My Ponytail: A pun on the movie and poem Pull my Daisy.

    • The episode plot were Todd is seen pulling on Maurecia's ponytail may in fact mirror the 2 characters from the book Paul and Leslie. Were Paul pulls on Leslie's pigtail because she saved him.

    • Scooby Doo: The chase scene were Todd is seen going through a hallway of doors trying to catch the animals (along with laughtrack) is a direct reference to the Scooby Doo cartoons.

    • The name of the episode, "Meet The Pets," is a spoof of Meet The Parents starring Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro. The title could also be a reference to "Meet the press"

    • In Honors Class one of the puppets Mrs. Jewls was using (Wolfman to be exact)is bares an uncanny look to one of the wolf monsters in the show Gruesomestein's Monsters.Another show Riccardo worked on.

    • Title: Cabbage, My Boy: Pun on 1924 poem Charlie, My Boy.

    • Title: Mascot Madness may be a possible pun on the 1936 movie Reefer Madness.

    • The song that plays twice in Mamaland Blues is the Soviet Anthem. Funny to note its a running gag by the writers who put that in there other show Funpak.
