- It is revealed that Mayor Flopdinger has a wife named Twilene.
- In the Nick Jr. version, the story Thomas Goes Fishing is cut out.
- Schemer broadcasts his show on Station WOWOW, "the echo of the Valley."
- The Magic Bubble sequence uses a clip from "The Phillips Broadcast of 1938," a Puppetoon produced by George Pal.
- The scene right after the Magic Bubble sequence where Mr. Conductor announces that he's off to the Yacht Club, was occasionally edited for time by certain networks.
- As Shining Time Station is set in America, the sounds of passing trains usually sound like American steam engine whistles. In this episode however, a passing train sounds like a two-tone diesel horn like those more often heard in Britain.
- The radio seen at the beginning of this episode is an RCA Victor A-20 "Globetrotter" 1940 model built in Montreal.
