    • The title of this episode is the same as the one in the 60's series that introduced Mysterio.

    • Marvin Wolfman, one of the co-writers for this episode, wrote Spider-Man comics in the mid-80s.

    • Most of the Daily Bugle articles shown during the show say "By Ned Leeds" - the article about Mysterio's defeat in this episode is one of the easiest to see.

    • Mysterio first appeared in the comics in the Amazing Spider-Man #13. the plot of that comic and this episode are almost identical.
