Pirates of the Wayside was made to promote the release of "Pirates of the Carribean 4", even Johnny Depp and some other cast members guest starred in the episode as cartoon pirates. But because the film was already released prior to the episode's airing, Nickelodeon canceled the episode's air date.
It's been confirmed that unless Teletoon and/or Nickelodeon decides to renew the show for a third/fourth season, the episodes will not air. It's unlikely to continue production since it ceased in 2008.
First episode of Wayside in over four years, possibly because production ceased in late 2008 until it was announced that the series was renewed with a number of production changes.
The opening sequences' footage was changed for the new season replacing most of the scenes from Wayside: The Movieto scenes from the new season and giving the Wayside logo at the end the Teletoon logo in Canada and the Nickelodeon logo in the United States.
The episode's animation style is now in digital instead of flash animated and computer animation is also used.

Running Gag: Mr. Kidswatter moving 2cm right for school.
All of Louis' answers are correct. The square root of 64 is actually 8, Christopher Columbus discovered America in 1492, thePythagoreantheorem is A2 + B2 = C2, the largest animal in the world is the blue whale, the three states of matter are solid, liquid and gas; and the inventor of the doughnut is Captain Hanson Crockett Gregory who invented the ring shaped doughnut.
When Kidswatter took the test, he thought the square root of 64 is pickle, thinking America was discovered in 1972 and thought the Pythagorean theorem was Elemental P (or L, M, N, O, P as it's uncertain).
Kidswatter should have at least got the three answers correctly after seeing Louis do the test.
