The closing credits for this episode has a different jazzy theme, and has Principal Wartz saying "Slippage" at several parts, inspired by a related gag in the middle of the episode.

The teachers' protest cheer: "No chalk - no teachers!"
The protest in "Teacher's Strike" mainly revolves around coffee and the lack of chalk.
This episode airs after New Teacher but features Ms. Slovak. This is because the episode was held over from Season One.
Rex Smith Higgins and Rex Smith Higgins III will be seen again in "The Pig War" in Season 3.
The episode name "Tour de Pond" is probably based on the bike race, Tour de France.
This episode introduces many of the other teachers at P.S. 118. Including Mr. Pakinham and Ms. Oberman.
"Tour de Pond" was made into a Nick.com game.
In "Tutoring Torvald," we see Torvald's mom. In "Teacher's Strike," when they enter the corner store, the cashier is Torvald's mom.
Episode Title: Tour de Pond
This could be an allusion to the famous bike tour, the Tour de France.
The showdown between Rex and Arnold is similiar to the showdown in the 1989 Tour de France between Greg Lemond and Laurent Fignon, which Lemond won.
