    • New Move Debut: The Soundproof Foo-field is a version of the Foo-field that not only block's attacks, it also mutes other people's voices so that others can't make themselves be heard to people in the Foo-field.

    • This is the second time Master Yo uses Yang as bait for a trap, the first time was in Destination Danger.

  • Quotes

    • Yin: Yang, I'm ashamed of you!
      Yang: And that's the first time today, so I'm way ahead of the game!

    • Dave: Just to let you know, Yang, Master Yo told me to tell you that there's nothing located behind me.
      Yang: Really? Then what's in that box behind you?!
      (Yang opens the box and gets hit with a pie)
      Dave: Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha. Gotcha! (Yang hits Dave)

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • The More You Know: "The More You Learn" slogan is a parody of the old "The More You Know" public service messages.

    • King Kong; Bigfoot: The elusive Kong-aroo is a reference to both the real mystery of Bigfoot in the Californian mountain areas and the fictional big ape in 3 live-action movies. Part of King Kong's name and his ape characteristics are present in the Kong-aroo, and Bigfoot is referenced because just like Bigfoot, Kong-aroo has never been successfully photographed nor has any concrete evidence been found of the creature's location; whether or not anybody has truly seen or found Bigfoot is subject to debate.

    • The Call of the Wild: The episode segment of The Carl of the Wild is a reference/parody to Jack London's well-known novel/movie about a domesticated dog who's thrust into the unforgiving wilderness of the Alaskan wilderness and finds himself reverting to more primal instincts in order to survive.
