    • Adam as the Jester: Wait a minute, I just realized something! You guys avoided the Bog Shark, you avoided the Harpies, and you avoided the Two Headed Beast! Have you guys ever ACTUALLY fought in a real battle BEFORE?! The Spiffies:! Adam sarcastically: That's just great!

  • Notes

    • Although Slips has moved his shirt sleeves as though he actually had arms and even made his tail look like a hand in the past, this is the first time he has actually sprouted hands and arms, in order to protect himself from hearing Adam Lyon's screaming.

    • It's revealed in this episode that the reason why Adam's friends don't act very bright more often is because one of their self-defense mechanisms for not getting hurt by more agressive animals is by acting less intelligent then they really are.

    • First time that a 30 minute episode of My Gym Partner's a Monkey had a 7/15 minute format instead of the usual 11/11 minute format for two episode segments. In this case, A Very Special Boy was only seven minutes long while Knights of the Multiplication Table was 15 minutes long.
