  • This episode, along with four other episodes, were posted early on July 20th, 2018 as a sneak preview on
  • Two of Eric Bauza's characters listed in the credits, Blonde Boy and Distraught Man, do not actually appear in the episode.
  • In one flashback, the Turtles were shown fighting Bowling Pin Creatures, which is possibly a nod to Turtles Forever.
  • Hypno-Potamus comments that it is currently mating season for him. This episode is also when he first meets Warren Stone. By a later episode, Warren & Hypno, Sitting in a Tree, Hypno has moved into Warren's apartment and the two have developed a romantic relationship.
  • Warren breaks the fourth wall a couple times in this episode; first during his opening narration; and then when realizing that the turtles will be going after Hypno-Potamus; he moves so that the camera is centered on him when it moves away.
