  • Until this episode, all Canadians had the first letter of their names on their shirts.
  • The Danish appear for the first time. Their appearance is similar to that of Canadians in that they have flappy heads, however they do not have the beady eyes characteristic of Canadians.
  • Before the episode aired, there was a press image released of the scene where Kyle is on the phone to the Canadians and the other three boys are behind him. In the press image, Stan, Cartman and Kenny are behind Kyle but in the actual scene, Kenny has been replaced by Butters and, as a result, only appears as a background character at the beginning. A similar thing happened in "Two Days Before the Day After Tomorrow".
  • Phillip is revealed to be diabetic in this episode.
  • The Star Wars theme song that plays during the Star Wars Kid appearance was slightly altered to avoid copyright infringement.
