  • The episode's title is a play on the title of Jean-Luc Godard's 1963 film Le Petit Soldat.
  • When Cartman is in the toy store, there is a game called Wolf on one of the shelves. This is a reference to Okami; the box art is identical.
  • This is one of only five episodes not to censor the word "shit" in broadcast before its total acceptation on comedy central. Others include "Ike's Wee Wee", "It's Christmas in Canada", "It Hits the Fan", and "Imaginationland, Episode III".
