  • The series first aired on September 6, 2010 with this episode, which means this is the series premiere.
  • This is the first episode of MAD to have three Mike Wartella segments, the first time iCarly and the Smurfs appeared, the first episode of MAD to have 20 segments, and this is the first appearance of the Where's Lady Gaga? segment, the Rejected segment, and the Super-Villains for your... segment.
  • Bart Simpson from the Simpsons appears in the Where's Lady Gaga? segment.
  • In "Houston, we have a Poo Poo," the stars spell out "Eat at Joe's," a standard WB cartoon gag.
  • This is the only appearance of the Celebrity Birthdays segment.
  • In Zombi, the movie is part of Fawn of the Dead which is a parody of Dawn of the Dead.
  • In the movie parody segment, Avaturd, characters from M&M's, Blue from Blue's Clues, Papa Smurf from the Smurfs, Keyboard Cat, and Grover from Sesame Street all had cameos.
  • In Zombi, the hunter was wearing clothes similar to Elmer Fudd from Looney Tunes.
