• While Mr. Turner is chasing Timmy and Vicky the buildings are pink like the ones in The Secret Origin of Denzel Crocker and the running style is a 1970 style because of the music.
  • The "expiration date" (date of death) of Mr. Turner is revealed to be January 10, 2050.
  • The Striker Z later makes an appearance in the special, the Jimmy-Timmy Power Hour, and again in Wishy Washy.
  • In the Bahasa Malaysia version of this episode. Timmy addresses his wish to Cosmo and Wanda in English.
  • Cosmo and Wanda both claim to be unable to speak Spanish and Cosmo also claims that he's barely able to speak English.
  • Mr. Turner has a different reaction to a car talking in The Big Surprise.
  • When Mr. Turner screams like a girl while riding downhill on his scooter-turned-skateboard, his scream is provided by Tara Strong, whom voices Timmy.
  • The following stores appeared in the background. Little is known about them:
    • Hardware Tools
    • Bob's Sports
    • Pinball Pizza
    • T Mart
    • Tiny's Cafe
    • Star
    • Jenny's Shoes


  • Speed Racer - When Mr. Turner hears Timmy saying the car is being stolen, he deduces that Timmy must have hidden in the trunk of his car similar to the episode where Speed's little brother do the same thing.
  • Back to the Future - When Mr. Turner breaks off the handle bars to the scooter and starts skate boarding, it makes a reference to the movie.
  • Mission Impossible - When Timmy and Vicky are about to fall off the cliff, you can hear the Mission Impossible theme-like music.


  • It was never revealed with what Mr. Turner did with his old car. He apparently just left it in the middle of the street.
  • It is said that only people who can drive are allowed at the Dimmsdale Auto Show, but three kids on scooters are seen. However, later in the episode, Dad said he was lying to protect Timmy meaning that he didn't want Timmy to do some crazy stunt with one of the vehicles that would endanger his life.
  • If you look closely, when Mr. Turner screams and covers his eyes, Cosmo is briefly seen with buck teeth.
  • When Timmy is speaking Spanish, he calls Cosmo "Señor Cosmo" and Wanda "Señor Wanda". Señor means "Mister" so the right term for calling Wanda is "Señora Wanda", Señora means "Miss".
  • Right before Dimmadome says "Howdy!" (or right after Mr. Turner's new car drove off) Vicky's eyebrows are the same color as her hair. In the next scene it is black, as it should be.

Running Gags

  • Vicky and Doug Dimmadome adding 'Dimma-' to every word that starts with 'D'. (Dimma-Deal, Dimma-Don't; etc.)
