This marks the first time that an adult puppygriff has been seen on-screen in this show.
As is in the case in reality, while Master Yo is called a Panda Bear, Panda's are not actually bears. The Giant Panda is actually more closely related to raccoons then they are to bears.
Running gags in this episode: 1. Ranger Ron keeps saying negative things about bears only to be corrected by Yin and Yang into saying a positive thing. 2. Every time Yin and Yang do something bad as Rita's pets, her collars give them an electric shock.
Yin: Yuck! We stink!
Yang: Like a skunk eating cheese in an outhouse while vomiting!
Yin: How do you know what that smells like?
Rita: Bad bunnies!
Yin: Oh, yeah, you got that right!
Yang: And you're about to find out just how bad we are!
(Yang is walking Lil' Schnozface)
Yang: This is fun! (sees Roger Jr. giving Dave a wedgie) And now it's not.
The outfits Yin and Yang dressed up in Pets Peeved:
1) Large sweater from An Oldie but a Goodie
2) Explorer outfits (Yin is seen wearing it again in The Carl of the Wild)
3) School uniforms from Yin Yang Yuck
4) Disguises from Dictator of the Year
5) Spacesuits from Moon Over My Yinnie
6) Yin as Smoke and Yang as Mirrors
7) Bunny suits
Starting with this episode, the opening sequence has changed again. The villain lineup now has (from left to right) Smoke, Mirrors, Carl, Ella Mental, IndestructiBob, and Rubber Chucky, with Eradicus at the very top of the screen.
Tiny Toon Adventures: The character of Rita is very similar to Elmyra from the popular cartoon which ran from 1990-1995. Even though both of them love pets very much, the way they treat their pets is appalling and no animal ever wants to stay as a pet of their's for very long.
Boo-Boo Goes Wild: Some of the animation, as well as many of the negative bear stereotypes in this episode come from the infamous 1998 Yogi Bear special made by John Kricfalusi's Spumco Productions with the approval/help of Hanna-Barbera Productions. The stereo-types include bears becoming savage, un-kempt, dirty, crude, rude, gross, and un-civilized.
Bear Ranger to Ranger Ron: Only you could've prevented this butt whopping! This line is a parody/reference of the Smokey the Bear slogan which is: "Only you can prevent forest fires."
The Yogi Bear Show: Many of the stereotypes of bears come from the successful Hanna-Barbera prime-time series which originally ran from 1957-1964. The stereotypes lifted from the show include a ranger trying to get bears into trouble, the bears liking honey (among other sweet foods,) and only one bear (Yogi Bear) acting like a goofball in order to get attention.
