  • Trivia

    • We find out that Lois is around 28 years old in this episode.

    • Nearing the end of Superman's and Titano's fight, the oversized chimp picks up a big wheel (ferris wheel) full of people. Considering there has been a giant ape present for a while, why are people still getting on rides?

  • Quotes

    • Maggie: (upon seeing Titano) Criminals, mad men, aliens we can handle. But this?

    • Lois: No, Titano, put down that vase! Give me back the remote! Come down from there!!!! (to herself) Sure was easier to have a monkey in a house where mom did the cleaning...

    • (Jimmy and Lois are looking for the teddy monkey)
      Jimmy: You're sure it's in here?
      Lois: Yes, I'm sure, so shut up and keep squeezing the monkeys!

    • Bibbo: All right, Cheetah, you asked for it. (slaps giant Titano with a newspaper) Bad monkey! Bad, bad monkey!!

    • Clark: Looks like you're just what the doctor ordered... Lolo.

  • Notes

    • Lois's music-monkey, "Beppo", is an homage to Beppo the Super-Monkey, one of several super-powered animal sidekicks Superman got in the 50's.

    • In the comics, Titano had "kryptonite vision." The creators left that out of this version (probably because there's no way that would be logical).

    • Notice that when Titano is initially sent into space, his booster is a "Titan O" - not only a source of his name, but also a series of boosters used by the U.S. during the space race.

    • This episode is based on a story appearing in Superman Annual #1 (1987).

  • Allusions

      Cheetah is the chimpanzee who accompanies Tarzan in the movies.
