- The ape on the second chorus's "one, two, three, five" as well as the one in the hospital bed are taken (through rotoscoping) from One Got Fat, a 1963 bicycle safety film featuring children wearing monkey masks.
- While this song didn't make any of the three albums released from the Dial-A-Song (2015) sessions, Flansburgh has stated that "there will be a very big box. But it's going to take some time."
