  • Trivia

    • When Bob is dusting the empty trophy case it cuts away for the conversation he and Pickles have. Watch closely when Bob begins to dust again the duster is invisible.

    • In the scene where Milo is left at Globocide Pickles says she'll miss him and she is told that Milo cant hear her. Yet he could hear Biff and Chip a few seconds earlier.

    • One unseen man at Milo's stand says "Go back to France you stupid kraut." When aired in syndiation on Cartoon Network, the word "kraut" is muted. Also edited, when a minor character says "You stupid fag." when aired on Cartoon Network "fag" was muted.

    • Response: Many factory workers are not high school graduates, so Bob could have been employed there since he was 16

    • George tells Bob that he's "single-handedly kept this company warm for over 20 years." But in "Please Be Genital," we learned that Bob and Pickles have been together for 18 years -- and they met when they were teenagers. So, how old would Bob have been when he began working at Globocide?
