    • TRIVIA (1)

    • QUOTES (3)

      • (revealing the parade float)
        Rocko: Bonza!
        Heffer: Isn't it glorious? A giant hamburger made entirely of hot dogs!

      • Old Coot Wallaby: (to Ed) Your ancestor, J.Q. Bighead, shortened the Native Americans by 29 cents on their deal.
        Ed: What?!!
        Native American Eagle: (wearing a blue business suit and holding a clipboard) That's right. And by my calculations...200 years...You now owe us the inheritance of $37,000 and two tons of breath mints. (gives Ed a piece of paper) Here's the bill. We'll be expecting payment in thirty days.
        Ed: Thirty DAYS???!! Wuh-dih-buh-dih -- HOW?!!
        Native American Eagle: Yeah, uh, "how" (as in the Native American greeting) to you, too, sir.

      • Heffer: Meanwhile, Lewis and Clark Heffer were crossing the Underwear, where they were attacked by "Redcoats" with "Yellowpants". Luckily, they were picked up by the "Fruited Planes" and blown to the "Purple Mountains."

    • NOTES (5)

      • "Turkey Time" was referenced in Homestar Runner.

      • If you look closely in the crowd during the parade marching sequence both near the beginning and the end of the episode segment of "Floundering Fathers," you can see prototypes of two characters from Joe Murray's next cartoon show, Camp Lazlo. The character prototypes are an older version of Raj the Elephant, and a female version of Lazlo the Monkey.

      • Not intended as the finale. Shortly after this episode firstly aired, it was put on Hiatus, and then cancelled a week later.

      • Stephen Hillenberg's hit show SpongeBob SquarePants debuted 3 years later on Nickelodeon.

      • This was the end of Rocko, yet some may say the beginning of SpongeBob, because Hillenberg could move on.
