  • The plot of this episode may be a reference to the 1998 episode "Powerprof". and the 2016 reboot episode "Professor Proofed", because they both have a strong focus on either the Professor fearing for the Girls safety, or viceversa in the latter.
  • Robin Snyder is referred to by a fellow player as Candice, it is unclear why this occurs.
  • The versions of the Professor in his mind is a reference to the Disney • Pixar film Inside Out.
  • This is one of the few episodes, and the last episode, written by Jake Goldman that doesn't feature Jared Shapiro.
  • Previously, there was controversy over whether this episode marked the end of the reboot because no new episodes aired for a long period after this episode, and there was no official announcement saying that the reboot was over. However, at some point in 2020, Kevvy Fajas announced on his Twitter page that the staff working on the reboot had parted ways and moved on to other projects, confirming that this is the reboot's final episode.
  • Total Eclipse of the Kart was originally going to be the series finale, but it got pushed back early, making this episode the series finale instead.
  • Due to the fact that this is the final episode of the series, it is also:
    • The final episode produced by Cartoon Network Studios as the live-action series won’t be produced by mentioned studio.
    • The final appearances of Blossom, Bubbles, Buttercup, The Mayor of Townsville, The Professor, and the citizens of Townsville in the 2016 series.
    • The final episode to have all voice actors featured in this episode as part of the voice cast.
    • The final episode to air in 2019.
    • The final episode of Season 3 for this series.
    • This is the second and final time the girls are part of a sports team since they were on two Kickball teams in "Little Octi Lost", and the first and only time they are in the same sports team together.
    • The final episode to air on Cartoon Network.
    • The final episode where Tom Kane voices the Professor due to the fact that he has been suffering a stroke as of October 2020, which left him with right-sided weakness and damage to his speech, writing, and reading capabilities, and by September 2021, he had to take early retirement because he was suffering long-term apraxia (difficulty in being able to smoothly transition syllables) as a result of the stroke.
    • This is the final time that the girls are voiced by their 2016 voice actors, as they have also parted ways in 2020.
