  • This episode addresses gentrification in the U.S.
  • The new developed area is called SodoSopa, which is shorthand for South of Downtown South Park. This abbreviation is similar to other trendy neighborhoods like TriBeCa, SoHo, and probably most notably LoDo ("Lower Downtown"), Denver.
  • Whole Foods Market Inc. is an American supermarket chain specializing in organic food that first opened on September 20, 1980, in Austin, Texas, also home to its headquarters.
  • Ted's replacement has his first speaking role.
  • PC Principal appears to be calm and less aggressive in this episode.
  • Karen McCormick appears to have undergone a redesign in this episode, adding hairclips to her hair.
  • Some of the older characters came back and made brief appearances in this episode, such as Mr. Adams from the "The Poor Kid", Mr. Gueermo from "Elementary School Musical", Dr. Alphonse Mephesto, Doctor Tom from "Tom's Rhinoplasty", Mr. Slave, and Big Gay Al.
  • South Park Studios refers to this episode as "The Shitty Part of Town", most likely a bid to how the Chinese say “city” when it sounds like ”shitty”.
  • The kids are singing the song He's Got the Whole World in His Hands. It's a song first published in 1927 but it became an international pop hit in 1957-58 in a recording by English singer Laurie London.


  • Randy says that he's been PC for almost two weeks, referencing that he turned PC in the first episode of Season Nineteen, which aired two weeks ago.
  • Kenny's family has a ColecoVision next to their TV, referencing the episode "Chickenpox".
  • It was mentioned by Mayor McDaniels that Craig was gay. Originally this was a joke but later on in Tweek x Craig there were yaoi drawn of them together. This in turn made them end up in a relationship proven in Put it Down.
  • Butters combs his hair before welcoming the Whole Foods Representative on Main Street. Early in season 5 episode "How to Eat with Your Butt", when the boys are taking school pictures, Butters appears in the same hairstyle.
  • Kyle is wearing a purple sweater and dress shirt when the fourth grade class sings "He's Got the Whole World" Kyle wears this same outfit in "Fat Butt and Pancake Head" during his speech.
