We learn the first name of Mrs. Griff, Joyce.
Stanley and his friends learn many facts about Chinese New Year in "A Happy Chinese New Year." The celebration is also called the Spring Festival and lasts for two weeks. It's been celebrated for over 4,000 years. Some of the ways Chinese celebrate it are by cleaning out their homes and decorating things in red. They also shoot of fireworks, and have a lion dance for good luck. The way to say "Happy Chinese New Year" in Chinese is "Kung Hei Fat Choy."
Stanley and his friends were all born in the Year of the Tiger.
When Stanley, Mimi and Marcy are outside sharing the bowl of banana chips, there is one point at which Mimi has the bowl of chips and it is shown to be nearly full. The scene cuts away to the other characters for no more than five seconds. When the scene cuts back, the bowl is completely empty and Mimi says that they've finished the whole bowl.
This episode draws to the eye a couple of features of Mr. Griff's glasses. Most notably, they have no visible bridge portion. When Mr. Griff takes them off, usually holding the left side, the right side appears to simply float in mid-air. Additionally, as his ears are located towards the bottom of his rather large head, the "earpieces" of the glasses simply rest on the side of the head, supported by nothing.
Stanley and his friends' supposedly challenging zebra puzzle in "Zebra Jigsaw" consists of only nine pieces. Though their solution of learning more about zebras to help them solve the puzzle is innovative, the puzzle could have easily been solved by simple logic. Most of its pieces were edge pieces and the four corners of the puzzle were rounded, clearly distinguishing them from the rest.
Towards the end of "Clock-A-Doodle-Doo!," Stanley is talking with Dennis and still fully dressed in his pajamas. The angle cuts away briefly (no more than fifteen to twenty seconds) and when it cuts back, Stanley is almost fully dressed and has his bag laying beside him.
In "Bloodhound Blues," Harry gets upset with Stanley and leaves the backyard, apparently for Stanley's room. Stanley decides to go talk to him and exits the backyard, leaving Dennis there along with his friends. Yet, when Stanley is next shown, talking to Harry in his room, Dennis is there, even though it appeared that Stanley headed for his room directly.
This episode features two songs -- "Nuts About Nuts" and "Good as Gold," both written by Joe Carroll and Peter Thom. "Good as Gold" is featured as Track 23 on the second Playhouse Disney music album.
Viewers learn in this episode that Dennis is a comet goldfish. Additionally, goldfish have been raised for over one thousand years, longer than any kind of pet in the world.
The proprietor of the fish shop that Stanley visits is Mr. Finn. He speaks with a Scottish accent, and a Scottish theme is played whenever he is heard speaking.
In "Sea Lion Slip-Up," Stanley's parents come outside to chastise him about not being dressed and the Great Big Book of Everything is left laying open in front of Mr. Griff's feet. The scene cuts away briefly and when this view is next shown, the Great Big Book has vanished completely, even though nobody at any point made a move to remove it.
Marci and Mimi do not celebrate Christmas. They are Black African Americans and celebrate Kwanzaa, but still get presents.
Lester does not celebrate Christmas. He is Jewish. He celebrates Chanukkah, but he gets presents one for each of the 8 nights of the holiday.
Possible pets Mimi and Marci fantasize about owning include an elephant, a llama, and a pig.
Marci is assigned to dress as a lioness for Animal Awareness Day, Mimi is assigned to be a fox, Lester is a gorilla and Stanley is a platypus.
When Stanley and Dennis are in the The Great Big Book of Everything during "Sloth for a Day," watch for a cartoony effect of the type not often seen on the series as the tree they're in is cut down. The both of them fall, but while Stanley falls, Dennis and his bowl are left briefly hanging in mid-air. The bowl itself falls first, then the water from it, and finally Dennis.
Closed-captioning throughout the episode misspells Marci's name as "Marcy."
Since Elsie is asleep during most of "Tiger Hunt," Harry performs "The Great Big Book of Everything" song solo.
