Sal and Santo, the Sweetooth Brothers, wear red and green helmets, have mustaches, and speak with Italian accents, just like Mario and Luigi, the Super Mario Brothers!
The Wild Horstachios are based on the game, where pinatas that have not yet moved into your garden will appear black and white.
We learn Prof. Pester is allergic to bunnycombs.
In this episode, Franklin ends up falling in love with a 3-eared bunnycomb. But back in "Franklin Can't Dance," Franklin fell in love with Florence Fizzlybear. I guess Franklin and Florence broke up or something. (Response: Or maybe they're still good friends.)
It's a Franklin Fizzlybear Episode.
In the Dark scene, You can hear Fergy Humming the Viva Pinata Theme Song
At one point in the episode, Paulie is humming the Viva Piñata theme song.
In "A Chewnicorn in the Garden," the Chewnicorn said there were no dragonaches, but a real one appears in this episode.
In this episode, the great Bonboon from previous episode 'Candiosity' reappears, only his voice has changed.(reply: It was a different bonboon)
Watch closely when Pierce drives the limosene into the "pinata comunity pool" you'll see a "no running on the deck sign", when you first get a look at it there's a Horstachio on it, in the next shot where the sign can be seen the pinata featured is a Fudgehog
Gameplay Tip: A Sour Profitamole can be tamed with toadstools.
Gameplay tip: As seen in "Mad Mongo" feeding a sour Macaraccoon a Cluckle (or in Franklin's case, a bucket of said Piñata meat) can result in taming the Sour Macaraccoon, making it a nice and tame addition to anyone's Piñata habitat.
From this episode onwards the original Viva Piñata intro is replaced with a brand new intro!
When Professor Pester tells the piñatas to make a group shot, His Graduate Cap is shown, not a director's beret.
This marks the first time (and maybe the last time) Prof. Pester helps a Piñata out of a problem. Who? Fergy Fudgehog.
As this episode suggests, Fudgehogs and Whirlms aren't on shall we say, the best terms. (In the wild, Whirlms regard Fudgehogs as something to fear while Fudgehogs regard Whirlms as tasty)
Gameplay Tips: When a Quackberry is fed Gooseberries, it can change into a JuicyGoose. Also, as demonstrated by Hamilton, despite his hunger, when a Horstachio eats blackberries and daisies, it can transform into a Zumbug.
Gameplay Tip: Chewnicorns can't resist the aroma of Gem Tree gems growing in the night, and sadly, neither can Fergy.
Gameplay Tip: Growing buttercups can bring about Buzzlegums, which can bring about Buzzlegum hives, which can bring honey. And additionally, honey can bring in a Fizzlybear.
