  • This episode is the last for several things:
    • The last episode to feature Little Miss Calamity, and the last appearance of her until the graphic comics by VIZ Media.
    • The last episode Mr. Fussy is referred as Mr. Per(s)nickety.
      • It is also the last episode Mr. Persnickety is in his first season colour scheme until an error in Cinema and in Home Improvement.
    • The last episode of the series to feature the original format of the series. Season 2 would introduce a more standard format for the series with a typical maximum of 4 plots (the one minute ones typically being adverts, infomercials, or occasionally music videos), a maximum of 3 bumpers, only unique scene transitions once per episode, and a revamp of the dance videos.
    • The last episode to feature the old style of title cards.
    • The last episode Simon Greenall voices Mr. Happy in the UK dub.
    • The last episode Jo Wyatt voices Little Miss Sunshine, Little Miss Scary, Little Miss Helpful, and Little Miss Naughty in the UK dub, as she left the show. Emma Tate took over Little Miss Sunshine and Little Miss Helpful, while Alex Kelly took over Little Miss Scary, and while Teresa Gallagher took over Little Miss Naughty.
    • The last episode to have Aline Mowat and Jo Wyatt as apart of the UK voice cast.
    • The last episode for the HD Cartoon Network airings to be in 4:3.
  • Plot hole: Unless Mr. Strong's strength is what caused the ship to sank, the Good Ship Dillydale wouldn't sink easily as the part where the hole is made isn't touching the water.
  • When the Good Ship Stubborn hits the iceberg and sinks, the stern is shown filling up with water and sinking, which is not possible as the bow would sink first if it hit the iceberg.
  • This marks the last time where Little Miss Scary wakes up Mr. Nervous from his daydream.
  • Mr. Fussy can be heard singing the SpongeBob SquarePants Theme Song.

Dub edits[]

  • Little Miss Calamity's screams are omitted.


  • In some shots, the edge of the backset for the deck on the bumpers can be seen when it tilts.
  • When the Good Ship Stubborn hits the iceberg and sinks, the stern is shown filling up with water and sinking, which is impossible as the bow would sink first if it hit the iceberg.
