Behold, the episode where Big Tex became the Buddy Thunderstruck version of Mr. Krabs. Even Buddy deserved better than his show having the filler nitro boost that Turbo F.A.S.T (season 3) had a year ago.
Part of Season: 1
Episode Number: 3a
Air Date: March 10, 2017
Writer: Chris Pearson
Director: Eric Towner
Previous episode: Robo-Truck of the Future
Next episode: Thunderstruck Rad Cab

Get the Hock Out is the 5th segment and the first half of the 3rd episode of Buddy Thunderstruck.


When Auntie Uncle loses all her furniture to debt to Big Tex, Buddy takes a job from Big Tex as a repo man to get his own stuff back.

Why It Should Get The Hock Out

  1. To start, this episode is infamous for being an incredibly mean-spirited Greasepit residents torture episode due to the citizens of Greasepit being tortured and treated like slaves similarly to what Lois Lane did to the Super Hero Girls in Breaking News all thanks to Buddy and Darnell's antics. This evidence clearly shows that Big Tex hardly shows any respect by literality sending his employees to do illegal crimes and torturing the citizens for their stuff and money.
  2. Most of the townspeople (even some newer characters who appeared after Buddy Double) were seen to have become total idiots than they usually were in the previous four segments since they don't know anything about dealing with criminals. Two great examples are:
    • First, when Nick the New Guy's TV and Leroy's footstool and armchair were stolen, they don't seem to have cared nor even noticed that their things being stolen, and when the Beavers noticed their hairdryer being stolen, they just stood there instead of just driving to get a replacement hairdryer from another shop.
    • And secondly, in the kitchen scene, Buddy told Muncie to look up at the ceiling instead of going far away from them where they won’t get easily caught, and while he and Darnell steal her tables and chairs from the Concho Bolo, they only ended up getting caught by Muncie, who actually managed to peek at them trying to steal a table from her restaurant.
  3. As a plus, most of the characters (Especially Buddy and Darnell, who became absolute morons in this episode) have also suffered from flanderization:
    • Buddy Thunderstruck himself was once a dim-witted, tough, mature, and likable country ace truck racer with a bit of intelligence who has some funny moments while having development around people. But this episode, however, portrays him to be much dumber and immature than he was in the previous four segments. He is almost Crash Bandicoot (Radical Entertainment) related in this episode, as he mostly gets himself in trouble and acts like he doesn't listen or care for the bad things that happened to the townspeople, Darnell or even himself despite what he said to the Greasepit residents in Buddy Double which proves that he's a huge hypocrite for treating other people who got their stuff from the Gold Brick Pawnshop like dirt which is against his character since while he's acting insanely stupid. At least he cared for some people. This continued in another two infamous episodes of the series, Stunt Fever (where he behaves like a literal man child over his rival’s stunts) and Cannonballistic.
    • Darnell Fetzervalve, who was once a mature, helpful, kind-hearted, and intelligent mechanic who is the voice-of-reason to Buddy, is somehow being portrayed as a perverted criminal who attempted to share Buddy's original persona after he became downgraded in this episode (though not as immature as what Buddy and the other Greasepit townspeople have become) but it's taken to another level to the point where he does very premature things like urinating on many things in front of women, which is really disgusting (Especially in the scene where he tried to urinate in the asparagus gelato in front of Muncie). He also has become an obvious Butt-Monkey type character than usual who gets easily tortured by Buddy who is supposed to be his best friend (which is later the same problem in later episodes such as Babysitters Yo and Health Nuts).
    • Big Tex is at his absolute worst in this episode and is one of the three earlier episodes that had his greediness went one step too far along with Buddy Double and Thunderstruck Rab Cab as he illegality hired two people (Buddy and Darnell) without any money to pay him just for them to become repo men and take people's items away despite some of them getting their stuff from other shops in the town of Greasepit so that Buddy and Darnell can get their own stuff back which is a choice that makes sense to be illegal in real life due to it involving no pay from the workers and it's illegal to steal things from people. And to top it all off, he never loses any debt from his pawnshop despite dealing with lawsuits or any fines for the trio's actions much like other times where he does illegal plans, almost making him getting off scot-free in this episode.
      • In fact, his character could be easily compared to Mr. Krabs from the dark age of SpongeBob SquarePants as both are villainous money-obsessing business owners who hardly show any respect to their customers and employees (including the main protagonists, SpongeBob SquarePants and Buddy Thunderstruck), both which have done volatile workers' rights and has done illegal crimes with his employees and even those who aren’t employed, both which have been scammers who are constantly tricking people into having their stuff broken or stolen. They are both very unkind fathers to their only children (Pearl Krabs and Tex Arkana Jr.) and both are Karma Houdinis who barely get punished for their sinful actions, not only he’s the most hated character of the entire show, but also some characters like Muncie and Artichoke (despite being a temporary employee in the pawnshop) hate him because of his actions in this episode along with the aforementioned Buddy Double and Thunderstruck Rab Cab.
    • Muncie, while still having her original personality as a tough-as-nails, strict, yet sane and caring tomboyish restaurant owner who is secretly a racer as well as nowhere near flanderized as her cousin and Auntie Uncle in this episode, is somewhat a Know-It-All plot device who doesn't seem to deal with her depressed customers after their stuff being stolen, which is rather out-of-character of her compared to Beaver Dam Fast Pizza since she would normally solve people’s problems when in her restaurant. The way she throws Buddy and Darnell out of her restaurant for trying to steal a table though justified is just too mean spirited, even for a bossy yet caring person like Muncie since they were her long time costumers and the fact that the former is her cousin (though aren’t mentioned) as stated in the same episode she was introduced.
    • Artichoke (while still a short-tempered, yet strong and average biker) is sort of a violent psychopath who nearly got Buddy, Darnell, and Big Tex killed for stealing his motorcycle (which for some peculiar reason it was his grandmother's instead of his, as stated in Buddy Double and he maturely trades Buddy's money art for his motorcycle in the episode "Funny Money" unlike this episode) rather than taking them to the cops, thankfully he redeemed himself when he give Buddy his broken vegetable chopper 3000.
      • Speaking of, Sheriff Cannonball and Deputy Hoisenberry, for some reason, don't appear in this episode at all which doesn't make any sense since Buddy, Darnell, and Big Tex are seen breaking a lot of illegal laws and they could've got them arrested for what they've done to the citizens of Greasepit, but instead of getting them to appear in this episode, Artichoke took over their roles as the cop which is a big miscast for this episode since he's supposed to be a biker and not a cop. This clearly shows how poorly written and nonsensical this episode's writing is.
    • Just like Pamela Isley in Scrambled Eggs, Robby Burgles has become a absolute joke of a gross out joke fodder-typed character whose only purposes are teaching Buddy and Darnell how to be repo men and going to the bathroom every time his stomach growls after eating super hot wings last night as opposed to the villainous and light hearted smooth trickster.
    • Some of the other Greasepit townspeople (with the expectation of Big Tex, Muncie Thunderstruck, Robby Burgles, and Artichoke) are either Butt-Monkeys or joke fodders who don’t even serve a purpose to the story as well, and are only there just for filler such as other characters like Mr. Weaselbrat, Auntie Uncle, Mama Possum and her Babies, Nick the New Guy, Leroy, and the Beavers.
      • On top of that, Auntie Uncle has been flanderized since this episode. He went from being a dimwitted, yet well-meaning aunt to a braindead spoiled Mary Sue-typed party animal who only cares about losing Buddy's money to other people and even getting off scot-free for selling all of Buddy's and even her own furniture to Big Tex just to "keep the business going" which is something that could give the post-movie Patrick Star and Peter Griffin since season 8 a run for their money.
  4. The way the repo man job was portrayed is just nonsensical and generic because, in real life, the repo men have to give the owners a repossession slip before taking their items away if the owners don’t pay them back, but this, however, gives that job in a very illegal way, resulting in Buddy and Darnell immaturely and cruelty treating the townspeople to the point of committing many crimes, which is not only a very bad moral to begin with, but also illogical, even for Buddy Thunderstruck standards, especially when it comes to insulting the intelligence of repo men in real life by portraying it as an illegal job in a kids show, which proves that Stoopid Buddy Studioos and American Greetings Entertainment used the "It's made for kids" excuse to get away with the writing of this episode.
    • First, the "Fairy Tale" method has Buddy and Darnell telling a fairy tale about why they need their stuff and exchange the story for their stuff which is very stupid as repo men don't do fairy tales to other people in real life and is completely random since fairy tales are stories supposed to entertain people for all ages, not a method for repo men to do. This also encourages fraud, scamming, blackmail and false report.
    • Secondly, the "Predict the Future" method has Buddy and Darnell giving a threat to other people who got their stuff from the pawnshop by damaging their properties (breaking, urinating, and running through things with the Rabble Rouser) only just because of one thing that needs to be taken to the pawnshop which encourages vandalism, harassment, abuse, assault, destruction, and violation of citizen rights which could've got them arrested and given a fine for the damages they have caused.
    • Last but not least, the "Do Not Disturb" method has Buddy and Darnell breaking into other people's homes, distracting the owners, and stealing their stuff they bought. This also encouraged breaking and entering, stealing, robbing, burglary, and piracy which could've also got them arrested.
      • In fact, despite seeing what Buddy and Darnell have done to their properties, literally almost none of the other townspeople aside from Muncie and Artichoke even punish or call Sheriff Cannonball on the two for their actions up to the point where they both get off scot-free. This is a side effect of their Buddy Double-styled stupidity in this episode (especially Mama Possum).
  5. Aside from the portrayal of repo men, this episode has logic that makes no sense, even for Buddy Thunderstruck standards, an example is when Auntie Uncle and Muncie somehow didn’t go deaf by the really loud air horns from Buddy’s garage and the air horn cans exploded when he threw them on the ground.
  6. Similar to Space Chimps 2: Zartog Strikes Back, Scrambled Eggs, the Great Divide, Roadside Attraction, and the majority of the third season of Turbo F.A.S.T, this episode heavily overuses unnecessary filler scenes that were only there just to pad out the running time of the episode, some great examples are:
    • The first few minutes where Buddy plans to get his and Auntie Uncle's stuff back, which the latter became overshadowed by the filler.
    • Robby Burgles teaching Buddy and Darnell how to be repo men which lasts for a whole minute.
    • The three Weaselbrat hot tub scenes (especially during the first one where Buddy, Darnell, and Mr. Weaselbrat hang out for the night).
    • The truck chase scene with Artichoke and Buddy, Darnell, and Big Tex laughing about a certain vegetable chopper.
    • The Concho Bolo scene in which Buddy and Darnell try to trick Muncie into having her restaurant’s tables and chairs taken to the pawnshop.
    • Various footages of Buddy and Darnell stealing stuff while Big Tex laughs.
    • Buddy and Darnell trashing Mama Possum's front yard.
  7. Immature humor which tries too hard to be funny to the point that some of them involved bathroom humor such as Robby Burgles' running gag of going to the bathroom every time his stomach growls (which may encourage vore) and the infamous scene where Darnell urinates in a birdbath in front of Mama Possum while he and Buddy were trashing her front yard which is clearly stupid and out-of-character of him since he's supposed to be one of the smartest characters in the show. In fact, it feels more like something Modern Peter Griffin would do. Lastly, Mama Possum's stupidity told them to take her birdbath which has Darnell’s urine in it instead of cleaning the urine off and calling Sheriff Cannonball to arrest them for vandalizing her front yard (another example of the townsfolk's stupidity), even the other three writers of the show would never agree to write that scene as Darnell managed to redeem himself after the Concho Bolo scene.
  8. Nonsensical, lackluster, bizarre, and inconsistent writing which makes the episode feel like an episode with a plot that belongs more fittingly for an episode of seasons 6 to 8 of SpongeBob SquarePants or the third season of Turbo F.A.S.T rather than Buddy Thunderstruck which is well-written and has the charm and cleverness it had. Not surprisingly enough is that this episode was actually written by one of the co-creators, writers, and executive producers of Dan Vs., Chris Pearson, who has done far superior writing in various episodes of that show (especially his solo written ones) which was written 6 years prior before he went to Stoopid Buddy Studioos to write this episode.
    • On top of that, his writing talent has been downgraded from being clever, smooth, and excellent to mildly nonsensical, idiotic, and outright hideous unlike various episodes he wrote for Dan Vs. as it contains some innocent characters and later mindless idiots which are being unfairly treated when they're forced to give their stuff away right after they vandalized some of their stuff or not keeping an eye on their stuff. Heck, even this episode had some plot holes that should've happened:
      • Why couldn't Buddy just go and ask one of his other friends besides Darnell in Greasepit (like his cousin Muncie, Mr. Weaselbrat, Leroy, Handsome Joe, the Beavers (who stole all his prize money in the first place), or even Really Old Lady who runs the bank) to lend him money if he needs money to get his stuff back from Big Tex?
      • Why didn’t Buddy use his nitro booster to escape from Artichoke immediately? (This is excusable since Artichoke's motorcycle was at the back of his truck, unable to let out the Rabble Rouser's nitro boost)
      • Who even wanted to steal tables and chairs from a public restaurant just so that they can be taken to a pawn shop?
      • Buddy broke all his bones like an immature idiot for jumping in Mr. Weaselbrat's hot tub without any water despite him landing on the grass after falling out of the Rabble Rouser without even breaking his bones earlier.
      • In Buddy Double, Big Tex is shown to have a hatred towards Buddy for winning lots of weekly truck races, but this episode, however, shows Big Tex hiring him and making a deal with the same guy he hates at the truck races.
      • Buddy thinks that the "Do Not Disturb" Method would work to steal Artichoke's chopper even though they don't even know where it is and mistook Artichoke's motorcycle for a chopper, also, why couldn't they use the "Predict the Future" Method so it might be easier to know where the chopper is hiding?
      • Shouldn’t Big Tex get his other “employees” like Jacko Valtrades to do the repo man job for him since Robby has stomach problems (despite the fact that he was arrested in the episode's prequel, Buddy Double).
      • How didn't Cannonball nor Hoisenberry see Buddy and Darnell stealing town properties even though they don't appear at all (as mentioned earlier)?
      • How did Muncie even know about Big Tex’s true colours as a criminal after she got her tables and chairs from the pawnshop before the events of this episode?
  9. It was somehow written as a sequel to Buddy Double possibly due to the first few minutes being set after the events of that episode instead of Robo-Truck of the Future and that events from Beaver Dam Fast Pizza (such as the Beavers being employed at the Concho Bolo) weren't mentioned entirely which is very late and confusing since Get the Hock Out was released four segments after Buddy Double and yet Muncie and the Beavers appeared in this episode though this was supposed to be set before their debut episode, Beaver Dam Fast Pizza. Not only that, since Buddy Double has a good ending where Jacko Valtrades got arrested, Buddy had his name cleared and everyone starting to love him again.
  10. It completely contradicts the events of Beaver Dam Fast Pizza and To Project and Swerve since the events of the two was ignored in this episode thus making it more of a filler episode rather than a continuation of the story just like Stunt Fever (another bad episode of the series).
    • In Beaver Dam Fast Pizza, The Beavers were hired at the Concho Bolo after Buddy told their customers that their pizzas are made from wood, but this episode, despite appearing in the Concho Bolo scene during Auntie Uncle’s flashback, isn’t shown to be working there and Muncie was the only cook at the restaurant as usual.
    • In Project and Swerve, Buddy told Cannonball that he has a new respect for law and order and he'll try his best to abide by it though he went to his immature criminal personality in this episode.
  11. Somewhat rushed production values, even by Stoopid Buddy Studioos standards, as you can clearly see the episode's production was a bit rushed, resulting in very mediocre scene editing (apart from being lazily written):
    • A good portion of scenes (especially after Buddy and Darnell leave Mr. Weaselbrat's front yard and the repo men scenes) cut to another scene without transition effects to go through the two scenes.
    • The scene where the Rabble Rouser drives back and forth is lazily reused eight times only with the extra stuff added to the back of the truck during the scenes with Buddy and Darnell stealing stuff and bringing them to the pawnshop.
    • Buddy, Darnell, and Mr. Weaselbrat are seen wearing the same exact clothes including their shoes to bed and even in the hot tub without even changing them when they could cause damage to clothing in real life. Even Darnell pointed that out and said "Why aren't we wearing swimsuits?". Buddy shows that he's still wearing his race suit and said "What? Are we made of money?", when the entire show had the same problem with the lack of change of clothes since the animators either made most of the characters being puppets with their clothes sewed together to their bodies or they were just low on budget and too lazy to design their swimsuits and other alternative clothing for the characters.
      • Even certain stop motion media featuring animals like 2009’s Fantastic Mr. Fox has some alternative outfits for its animal characters while they’re puppets even if that movie took 5 years to make when compared to this show where the animal characters only wore one outfit despite the show taking two years to make.
    • Not only that, but there are also easily noticeable errors in the stop-motion animation such as:
      • During the outside view of Buddy and Darnell's garage, Buddy and Darnell are still in the Rabble Rouser behind it even though they're inside the garage.
      • During the scene where Big Tex was with Buddy and Darnell at the pawnshop, Big Tex's eyebrows have changed from his regular eyebrows to the same eyebrows as Tex Jr and Artichoke’s to just being separated.
      • The gold badge on Big Tex's tie appeared to have no blue gem on it, though it appears afterward.
      • Buddy and Darnell’s character models have been a bit off and looking like their later appearances in the repo men school scene.
      • The scene where Artichoke chases the Rabble Rouser where the shading of the Rabble Rouser and Artichoke usually is are somewhat dark compared to the background in that scene.
  12. Very rushed ending: Big Tex told Buddy and Darnell to steal a broken vegetable chopper from Artichoke instead of his motorcycle, thus giving it back to him, following with a filler scene about Buddy, Darnell, and Big Tex laughing about a certain vegetable chopper, only for Buddy to deal with Big Tex that he and Darnell would get everyone's stuff back even though they only gave Artichoke and Mr. Weaselbrat's stuff back and never even bothered to show them giving back the other characters' belongings that they stole and apologized for it and randomly ended with another hot tub scene with Buddy immaturely doing a cannonball in Mr. Weaselbrat's hot tub without any water and breaks his bones, and it ends right there without any continuation which felt like a very pointless filler scene that looks like something belonging to a post-movie SpongeBob SquarePants episode.
  13. Buddy is supposed to get his and Auntie Uncle's stuff back as seen in the beginning, but due to the repo man goal and the filler overshadowing that goal to the point that it was never brought up nor mentioned after the first three minutes of the episode, it makes the entire scene pointless and feel like the scene was only in this episode just to give Buddy and Darnell a reason to go to the Gold Brick Pawnshop to become repo men.
    1. On top of that, the repo man goal could've easily avoided if Buddy and Darnell ask other people like Muncie or Mr. Weaselbrat to give them money to get their stuff back, overall making the events of the episode pointless.
  14. While the voice acting was good most of the time, some of the dialogue, while witty, can be very laughable due to the poor writing, especially the infamous "I'm here for your internal organs" and "You're all deader than disco" lines from Artichoke. This is probably because Chris Pearson worked on Dan Vs. way before this episode was even written.
    • Big Tex's evil laugh sounds very annoying and cringe-worthy that it felt like his voice actor (Harry Caskin) got very close to the microphone.
  15. The episode had ruined the reputation of writer, Chris Pearson since this was his last written episode for an series, but it was also the last project Chris Pearson has ever written for nearly 5 years until 2022 where he was confirmed to be involved as a writer in the upcoming thriller, A Violent Intent, and the podcast series, Sam Archer.
  16. Its plot is rather nonsensical and weak to the series as a whole, being one of the four episodes in the series that served as filler which never usually happens compared to most episodes which barely have any impact on the series overall just like Thunderstruck Rab Cab (while part of the Moneybags arc), Stunt Fever, and Cannonballistic, (even for a non-Belvedere Moneybags arc episode), the only events this episode has impact on is the interaction between Buddy and Big Tex and Muncie’s hatred towards the Arkanas, but even so, it can still be skipped. You can watch the show (even the former two episodes that are filler), skip this episode, and anything too important would not be missed.
  17. Despite turning against Big Tex over his plan, Buddy and Darnell somehow don't give up being repo men, meaning they still had to work with Big Tex (which later episodes such as Thunderstruck Rab Cab retcons this) despite the fact that in To Protect and Swerve where they gave up being cops after Buddy takes his job way too far. In this case, how come they didn't give up on being repo men after it was negatively portrayed in this episode?
  18. The tone of this episode, while still keeping the show’s original light/dark tone unlike Scrambled Eggs from DC Super Hero Girls, is incredibly jarring for a Buddy Thunderstruck episode that is part of Season 1, as that the series is known for having a balanced tone of action and comedy. However, this episode has a very campy tone that's really jarring, as it is a generic criminal episode with little to no racing scenes, this can be very out-of-place in an racing cartoon show like this one for example.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Muncie (despite being a plot device to Buddy and Darnell), Mr. Weaselbrat, Mama Possum's babies, and The Beavers (despite them having no purpose in the story) were at least the only likeable characters that aren’t flanderized nor derailed in this episode.
    • Speaking of Muncie, she does have a fair point about Big Tex being greedy and made bad deals towards people who got their stuff from his pawnshop and is one of the few characters (alongside the other characters who are absent in this episode) who doesn’t become a total idiot about her stuff being stolen.
  2. Artichoke and Muncie are the only characters who actually punish Buddy and Darnell for stealing despite nearly none of them doing so such as Nick the New Guy, Mama Possum, and Leroy.
  3. Despite the ending being rushed, nearly everyone (though only Artichoke and Mr. Weaselbrat's stuff back were shown) got their stuff back.
  4. The idea of the main characters becoming repo men just so that they can get their stuff back in a Dan Vs.-styled episode of the series would've sounded interesting, especially if it doesn't include the flaws that this episode has.
  5. The stop-motion animation and rock background music are still great and some of the voice acting is alright besides the questionable lines and Big Tex's evil laugh.
  6. A few funny scenes such as the beginning where Buddy and Darnell were yelling when they went into their garage and Darnell telling a fairytale to Mr. Weaselbrat with puppets.
    • Apart from being laughable, the dialogue is still witty as the previous episodes, especially "Darnell? Is this some kind of mental telepathy thing? Cool! Hey, what number am I thinking?", "YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO BRING ME THAT HOT TUB", and "No, I mean repossess. Repo, man".
  7. The episode was non-canon to the Thomas Krajewski era and the entire show, because the events of the episode were never seen or mentioned apart from Buddy and Big Tex’s interaction. For example, Buddy and Darnell's stuff (including their furniture and stuff from their bedroom) reappears in future episodes, implying that he eventually got them back.
  8. At least this, along with Buddy Double, Stunt Fever, and Cannonballistic didn't cause the show to go downhill.
  9. Funny Money (which this episode came out two segments after this episode) is this episode done right, as the characters are less flanderized (most notably Buddy who was less of an idiot throughout the episode), has a more interesting plot about Buddy trading his art for other people's things instead of stealing them, Sheriff Cannonball arresting Buddy for his "actions" (though he freed him later after Moneybags' talk with Cannonball) and Buddy's character development with Muncie being brought back for inviting everyone to help Muncie after he realized that nobody came to her art show.
  10. With Buddy and Darnell's garage debuted in Robo-Truck of the Future, this marks the first time it shows their bedroom on the second floor of their garage.
    • It's also the first appearance of Leroy and Mama Possum's houses, Artichoke's tent, and the inside of Nick's house.


Despite positive reviews and ratings, Get the Hock Out received polarizing reception by many Buddy Thunderstruck fans, some may have enjoyed it while others considered it as if not, the worst Buddy Thunderstruck episode, besides Buddy Double, Stunt Fever, and Cannonballistic, criticizing this episode for the entirety of the townspeople being very out-of-character compared to the previous episodes, Big Tex's over-the-top cruel treatment of the townspeople, the repo men job being portrayed in a very negative light, almost none of the townspeople giving Buddy, Darnell nor Big Tex any comeuppance for their criminal status (besides Muncie and Artichoke), nonsensical writing, and a filler plot that barely has any impact to the series with a very rushed and unsolved cliffhanger ending since it's clearly unknown if Buddy actually get his and Auntie Uncle's stuff back or not.

In fact, this episode also caused a few fans to take their hatred out on Big Tex for for being a cruel and neglectful father to Tex Jr, being a huge criminal who barely goes to jail once in the series, constantly underpaying his “employees”, and treating the townspeople like dirt into getting their stuff broken and stolen.

It was also considered to be the last project that Dan Vs. co-creator and writer, Chris Pearson was involved in for 5 years until 2022 when it was announced that he would be involved as a writer in the upcoming thriller, A Violent Intent, and the podcast series that was currently in post production, Sam Archer, according to IMDb, and received a 7.7/10 on the same site along with Thunderstruck Rab Cab, currently making it the third lowest-rated episode of Buddy Thunderstruck on the site, only behind Moneybags Changes Everything and the Maybe Pile.

  • This is the first episode to be written by someone other than Thomas Krajewski as it was instead written by Chris Pearson, who is best known for being the co-creator, writer, and co-executive producer of the Hub cartoon series, Dan Vs., the second is its sister episode, Thunderstruck Rab Cab where it was written by Drawn Together crew member and writer of numerous SpongeBob books and comics, David Lewman, and Mayor May Not where it was written by The Last Kids on Earth writer, Jennifer Muro. However, Thomas remained as the story editor for these three episodes.
  • This was also Pearson's first cartoon episode that he wrote 4 years after the cancellation of his show "Dan Vs." since he worked on a live-action project, "Back to the Further" during that time.
  • The fast-forward hot tub scene is a reference to the intro of King of the Hill.
