  • This is the first time World War Z and Man of Steel appeared. The next will be MAD's 100th Episode Special.
  • This is the second time Pacific Rim appeared. The first was the previous episode.
  • This is the fourth time a MAD episode comes out on a holiday (Columbus Day), and the fourth time Cartoon Network was mentioned.
  • This is the 17th episode of MAD to have only one Mike Wartella segment.
  • 18th appearance of the MAD Security Cam segment.
  • This is the 59th time Spy vs. Spy was done in stop-motion.
  • This is the only time Drake & Josh, Zoey 101 and Sam & Cat get spoofed.
  • Cat Valentine should have been voiced by Grey DeLisle instead of Kevin Shinick because a teenage girl voiced by a man is a bad idea.
    • Curiously, this also happened in the Latin American dubbing, where, perhaps to keep the reference to the original voices, Eduardo Garza (Latin American bender from the series) played as Cat, trying to give a "feminine" voice.
