      • The show moved to Saturdays at 11:30 a.m. that October. It launched a second showing, at 12:30 PM, later that season.

      • Kayte Kuch and Sheryl Scarborough, who were script writers for the show in season 1, are now story editors. Also, effective with this program, season two episodes (unless noted otherwise) will have been done by computer coloring and compositing.

      • In "Little Orphan Punky," Glomer briefly turns the kids into mice.

      • A cover of the song "Money (That's What I Want)" is performed while the kids are on a spending spree in "Punky's Millions." The last time the song was performed on a Saturday morning cartoon was on the Beatles' show (1965-69).

      • The title "Punky's Millions" and its premise are taken from the book "Brewster's Millions." The major difference is that, unlike what happened in the book and most stories taken from it, the protagonist loses the challenge.

      • This is the first of many second season episodes digitally composited instead of using cel-and-paint filmed animation.

      • During the first replay of season two, interstitials featuring NBC's live-action prime stars were inserted into the Saturday morning shows. As such, new episodes (here, beginning with "Little Orphan Punky" and "Punky's Millions") were edited.
