    • Though it is learned later that JoJo's teacher isn't married, she is referred to as Mrs. Kersplatski. Possibilities include that she is widowed, divorced or separated, or that everyone simply calls her it out of respect. Mrs. Kersplatski gets married in the second season of the program.

    • Series premiere --- JoJo, Goliath, Mrs. Tickles, Mrs. Kersplatski and many of Jojo's friends are introduced.

    • Viewers are introduced to the Spotlight Moment song. At the end of each episode, someone asks JoJo what she learned and she is carted off to a stage as people sing, asking her what she learned.
