  • Trivia

    • Goof: When Tommy and Chuckie were on the doll machine, they were fitted with doll clothes, including white socks and blue shoes. How the machine got socks and shoes on Chuckie is beyond knowledge, since Chuckie was already wearing yellow socks and red sneakers. It's probably impossible to wear two shoes on the same foot, unless the shoe on the outside is somewhat larger than the one on the inside; the shoes used for the dolls were the same size as Chuckie's shoes, if not, smaller.

    • Goof: Near the end, we see Tommy and Chuckie in doll clothes (and Chuckie in doll makeup) in the box where the dolls were kept. After Stu and Didi left the room, Tommy and Chuckie climbed out of the box, wearing their normal clothes, probably without pausing to take off the doll clothes that they were wearing.

    • Goof: In one scene of the episode "Stu-Makers' Elves" when Tommy and Chuckie are in the basement there is a big toy clown with all the toys. Yet Chuckie shows no fear of it. Isn't he afraid of clowns?

  • Notes

    • Near the beginning (shortly after the opening credits), and later (when Chuckie got stuck in the folding bed), you'll see some white specks floating by on the screen. This isn't your TV or the network; for some reason, the film was not properly cleaned during post-production of this episode. Keep in mind that film tends to get dirty during shipping, especially when it has to cross the Pacific (the animation for the first season was done in Taiwan by Wang Film Productions, afterwards the Korean studio Anivision). This is especially true with episodes produced in the 1996-1999 seasons.

    • Please note that the Pickles were taking U.S. 66 to the Grand Canyon. The legendary Route 66, stretching from Chicago to Los Angeles, was phased out by the federal government several years ago, as it was replaced by various Interstates.
