    • Although it says in the episode that the pumpkin was 1404.5 pounds, this page indicates it was actually 1385. It also indicates that this episode was filmed on and around October 4, 2003.

    • The giant pumpkin featured in this episode is no longer the world-record holder, but that's not surprising, since the record has been broken every year since 1996. The current record is 1,446 pounds for a pumpkin grown by Al Eaton of Canada. Learn more about it here.
