    • This is the only episode to feature Chester and A.J. as main characters instead of Timmy.
  • This is the only episode in the series that Cosmo and Wanda do not physically appear in. They do however appear in photos, and Timmy could be heard talking to them from his window (but not seen).
  • This is the first episode in which Timmy doesn't make any wish onscreen, due to him not being the focus of this episode.
  • Timmy Turner's permanent record reveals that he has bad performance in math, reading, gym, basket-weaving, and more. He was involved in a snot flinging incident with two other unnamed students and forced to wear a dunce cap. An MRI scan of Timmy's head reveals he has 50% less brain matter than the average child his age. He also has an overindulgence of cheese, which requires large amounts of laxatives to keep his digestive tract in order.
  • The paper Chester and AJ write for is called the Campus Gazette.
  • This is the first appearance of Mr. Birkenbake, the school newspaper editor chief.
  • Chester is revealed to be part squirrel, but he also reveals he is not part flying squirrel.

Running Gags

  • Chester saying that he "Will Not Be Silenced!".


  • Part of this episode also references "Transparents" when Chester and A.J. look at a photo of Cosmo and Wanda posing as Timmy's parents, yet dressed as the parents when they weren't in the mentioned episode.


  • Some scenes in this episode (the parts seen in "A Wish Too Far") were wrong.
    • For example, when Veronica was blinded by Timmy's shiny teeth in "A Wish Too Far", Trixie was still standing. Here, Trixie is already in the seat next to Timmy when Veronica got blinded.
  • When Chester goes to A.J.'s house, you can see that there is a train rail beside it. But in previous and next episodes, the rail isn't beside A.J.'s house.
    • Also, when A.J and Chester walk out of their houses, the train rail is beside A.J.' house. But when it zoomed out to A.J. and Chester, the rail isn't beside the house.
