As a result of this episode including an image of Muhammad in disguise, Trey Parker and Matt Stone were threatened by radical Islamic website "IslamPolicy", formerly known as "RevolutionMuslim". Both sites have since been shut down.
A cake (pictured) was made for the South Park crew shortly before the day of the episode's broadcast in celebration of what they felt was a "milestone" for the series.
The show became banned in Sri Lanka after showing an image of Buddha sniffing cocaine.
Although supposedly preoccupied with the "Islam problem" and that of avoiding the breaking of the tenets of the Muslim faith, irritating believers and/or offending them--whether because Muhammad shown could be a chance to diminutize him or idolitize his image, either of which would be a sin--it doesn't stop the characters from repeatedly blaspheming and profaning Christian epithets in this episode or 201, even in front of Jesus himself, who doesn't seem to care one way or another that they do. This is an unsurprisingly characteristic jab at the desensitization and lack of similar treatment in what is actually a surprisingly similarly-lawed religion, that its followers simply don't care as they should, or that they're actually disobedient (i.e. Roman Catholicism's representation of Christ, or "Ed", doesn't fly with "Thou shalt not have any graven image", even if it isn't a Commandment, is still an order).
Several deceased celebrities (both in real life and show continuity) are shown in the episode. This may have been intentional as all the celebrities would've had to be inserted one-by-one in the animation process. However, the fact that celebrities such as George Lucas and Steven Spielberg have managed to appear again, despite on-screen deaths in the show, may imply that celebrities have a Kenny-esque loophole in the South Park Continuity that allows them to die and come back without explanation.
The promo video of the celebrities in front of the citizens of South Park talking about a class-action lawsuit is never seen.
While many of the characters retain their old appearance in this episode (although many have had their looks "polished" since their initial appearances), Mecha-Streisand is completely re-designed from her initial appearance in Season One. She is now completely CGI in design.
As Mecha-Streisand is powered up, a Japanese voice (parodying the Japanese Man who sung in a similar tone in "Mecha-Streisand") is heard singing: "バーブラ、バーブラ、一番嫌いな人。 バーブラ、バーブラ、鼻が大きい" (Baabura, Baabura, Ichiban Kirai Na Hito. Baabura, Baabura, Hana Ga Ookii) which translates into English as: "Barbra, Barbra, the person we hate the most. Barbra, Barbra, your nose is big". This is referencing to Matt and Trey's hatred for her (In fact, they once happily said, "A lot of our fans ask us, 'Do you really hate the celebrities you make fun of in South Park?' And the answer is: of course not. It's all just in good fun... except when it comes to Barbra Streisand! We hate her!").
Although "200" was originally available for purchase on iTunes, it has now been removed. In Australia, it has been put back up.
This episode shows assorted celebrities who are dead either in real life, South Park continuity, or both.
Despite being dead in real life (and in the show as well) by the time this episode aired, Michael Jackson, Johnnie Cochran, Christopher Reeve and Steve Irwin are present in this episode. Irwin in particular may still be dead in the show, as he is shown to still have a stingray in his chest (as seen in "Hell on Earth 2006") but was allowed to return temporarily from Hell for the sake of the lawsuit.
Kanye West died in a deleted scene from the Season Thirteen episode "Fishsticks," but due to the fact this scene was not kept in normal broadcasting episodes, this may not be considered technically canon.
The "Goo" that Rob Reiner mentions is a reference to the goo that leaked out of him at the end of "Butt Out".
The "Packing Fudge" comments directed at Tom Cruise are similar to the "Come out of the Closest" comments made in "Trapped in the Closet". Both are hardly subtle jokes regarding the rumors that Tom Cruise is a homosexual who is in the closet. Also note the many closets Jared finds in Tom's house.
The Diamond of Pantheos, which transformed Barbra Streisand into Mecha-Streisand, was broken apart and hidden in the five corners of Canada. However, Mel Gibson is seen using the Diamond to re-power the newly rebuilt Mecha-Streisand. They could have all located them and retrieved them though.
While not stated specifically, it appears that the current group of Ginger Extremists may be a revival of the group founded by Eric Cartman. They are, for example, using the Sunset Ballroom at the Airport Hilton. The original Ginger Extremist Group appeared in "Ginger Kids".
Tim Burton was the only celebrity to join Tom Cruise's group but had not yet been made fun of on South Park. (Though, when Tom Cruise convinced Tim to join him, questioning if Tim would appreciate if someone mocked him that "he hasn't had an original idea since Beetlejuice" and his constant partnership with Johnny Depp saying that if he loved him so much he should marry him already, ironically mocking Tim through the South Park world).
Despite Tom Cruise mentioning to all the celebrities that they can relate to being "slandered" in South Park, some celebrities such as Sally Struthers, Russell Crowe, John Edward and Michael Bay were not actually physically mocked in the town itself, but instead on TV or in a different location. However, they still agree to sue the whole town.
Despite being deceased in real life since October 10, 2004, Christoper Reeve still made an appearance.
This episode is banned in (including but not limited to):
Latin-America (Except Brazil)
Despite the fact that the confrontation between the South Park townspeople and the Gingers in South Park's road, and the confrontation between Cartman, Mr. Garrison, Mitch Conner and Mr. Hat at Mr. Garrison's house happen at the same time, Mr. Garrison is shown in both locations. The South Park staff stated that it was a goof. It was fixed for the DVD release.
When Cartman tells Mr. Garrison to put Mr. Hat on, only one of Mitch Connor's eyes are on his hand.
Rob Reiner and Barbra Streisand are sad to have together. But the only time that happened was when Streisand used one of her songs (I'll Know) in one of Reiner's movies (When Harry met Sally).
