      • There goal for reviving the show is to make something unique and new for the public while honoring the connection to the original without copying the whole thing. This explains why the show had several changes such as animalizing The Chief (Double Q) and Goldflipper (Yellow Pinkie) into a cape buffalo with a calabash pipe and a sea lion with a love of gold instead of two men with balding hairlines. A new original character, Penny, was introduced as Secret's love interest. Secret's design has been modified and his hat has been changed as well as turning him from a clumsy screwball into a serious, suave and smart spy with all gadgets in his coat and making Morocco from a Peter Lorre-like chauffeur into a childish, clumsy and funloving sidekick/assistant with a new color scheme, sunglasses and a brother named Scirocco Mole. The show also falls under the villain of the week formula.

      • Fred Seibert, last president of HB at the time, ordered Donovan to revive a classic HB show as a backup segment for 2SD as the producers felt 3 2SD cartoons were not good. He chose Secret Squirrel because it was his favorite show as a kid.

      • Beginning with this episode, the show is now called "Super Secret Secret Squirrel" and airs as part of another show entitled "2 Stupid Dogs."

      • This episode originally aired between the 2 Stupid Dogs episodes "Door Jam" and "Where's the Bone."

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Goldflipper is obviously a parody of the infamous James Bond villain "Goldfinger."

      • The scene where Goldflipper is diving through his piles of gold teeth is reminiscent of the cartoon "DuckTales," in which Scrooge McDuck is often seen diving in his mountains of gold coins in his vault.
