  • Trivia

    • The original airing of this episode had a few additional scenes to the cartoon-making montage, such as Stimpy punching out after a hard day, only for the sun to come back up and for him to re-punch in, along with Ren talking on the phone as producer, briefly stopping to yell at Stimpy carrying supplies, and Ren cutting parts out of Stimpy's film in the editing stage. Originally, Ren tearing down the storyboards was after Stimpy's lunch break and before he needed to get a new pencil; future airings would move this to after the pencil/paper-obtaining sequence. The music mixing was also changed, and some additional sound effects were added as well. The re-edited Nickelodeon version was also used when the episode was released on DVD.

    • Wilbur Cobb was originally called Raymond Spum (after the name John K. used for the director in 'Nurse Stimpy'). Wilbur Cobb is named after notorious Nick story editor, Will McRobb.

    • Although Stimpy doesn't know it, he says that cartoons go through 1000 frames per second. However, in reality most cartoons go 12 frames per second for regular motion, and 24 frames per second (the standard film fps) for fast or realistic movement. However, video and computer technology can now make a cartoon's rate be 29 to 30 frames per second (in North America and Japan) or 25 frames per second (other continents and regions).
