  • This is the only half-hour episode of MAD, and the only episode of MAD to not have an Animated Marginal.
  • Although the narrator in the segment In Madmoriam claims that the deceased characters will live on in reruns, MAD has never aired a rerun since the final episode.
  • It is unknown why Ape Sheriff was named as one of the deceased in the segment In Madmoriam, it was never stated in the show that he had died at all.
  • This is the sixth time Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles showed up, and the only time Sanjay and Craig showed up, and the only time that an episode of MAD has two Spy vs. Spy segments instead of just one.
  • This is the second time Man of Steel, World War Z, and One Direction appeared, and the second appearance of Flunco!, because up until now, this segment hasn't appeared in the show since Episode 57.
  • This is the third time the MAD News segment appeared in MAD Season 4, and the third appearance of Superheroes: They're Just Like Us, because up until now, Superheroes: They're Just Like Us has never been in the show since Episode 8 and Episode 51.
  • This is the fourth appearance of MAD's Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions, because up until now, this segment has never been in the show.
  • This is the fifth time a MAD episode comes out on a holiday (Veterans' Day), and the fifth episode of MAD to contain both the MAD News segment and the MADvent Calendar.
  • This is the seventh episode where the MAD News segment interrupts another segment, the seventh time Spy vs. Spy used a pop culture reference, and the seventh episode of MAD to feature guest stars (Henry Winkler and "Weird Al" Yankovic).
  • This is the 13th time Spy vs. Spy was in color, the 61st time Spy vs. Spy was done in stop-motion, the seventh and final time Spy vs. Spy used a pop culture reference, the only time it used a pop culture reference outside of season 3 and this is the second time that the spies had a draw/tie. This happened in the first Spy vs. Spy segment after the MADvent Calendar.
  • This half-hour episode of MAD marks the final appearance of the MAD News segment.
  • One of the stop-motion segments in MAD's 100th Episode Special known as "Cavemen Office," is similar to the Stop-Motion Amanda segments that were used in Season 1 of the Amanda Show, until they were discontinued starting with the Amanda Show Season 1, Episode 12.
