- This is the second time when someone consumes jealousy at Bubbles. The first was Blossom in "A Star Is Blossom".
- As of this episode, Bubbles became a official new member of the Derbytantes.
- This episode title is a reference to a women's roller derby team called the L.A. Derby Dolls.
- Dr. Tanksnstein is loosely based off Frankenstein.
- This is the third time an episode used live-action stock footage, in a manner similar to that of Pickle & Peanut and early episodes of Brandy and Mr. Whiskers.
- Running gag:
- Blossom getting crushed by Dr. Tankenstein.
- A random stock footage of any half-animal half-human, whenever Maylyn mentioned it, can be seen all throughout the episode.
