Behind the scenes
- The episode tries to fill out time by beginning the episode with Astro chasing a cat, and another scene with George being woken up by his talking alarm.
- This episode attempts to deal with the popularity of Judy, which was always implied in the first season.
- Even though Orbit High School had appeared in the opening theme song, it hadn't appeared in a single appeared in season one.
- Andy Andromeda is the first African American in the series.
- This episode reveals one source of power for space cars is fuel pellets.
- Judy mentions a pancake tablet, which replaces real food in this episode.
- Judy is a Libra.
- Judy reveals her limerick interest.
- Even though Judy has her own car in this episode, in later episodes, she talks about wanting her own.
- Orbit High looks nothing like it does in the opening theme song.
- Having Spacely at Judy's birthday party seems highly improbable. To add to that, he's only in one shot, and when he says happy birthday, it's simply his mouth moving along with the family saying it. This suggests that it was an addition by the animator(s), instead of a script direction.
- The boy at the right of Astro, when he pops at the cake, doesn't have lips.
- Flashbacks to this episode are shown in "The Century's Best."
