      • The episode features a violent and shocking end for the Parasite, and it was episodes such as "The Pernicious Parasite" in "The New Adventures of Superman" that ultimately lead to parents and religious organizations forcing the networks to remove any violence from Saturday morning cartoons.

      • This is one of the few episodes where a villain accidentally discovers Clark Kent's true identity (and almost drains the Man of Steel in the process). Kent manages to get away and makes an off-screen, hidden change inside of a police truck to Superman.
