- During hobby day, Skipper was building a ship in the bottle, Private was making a house of cards, Kowalski was experimenting with chemicals and Rico was painting his girlfriend.
- The penguins made Saturday into "hobby day".
- The Baboon Habitat is also the same location as the Flamingo Habitat.
- This is the first appearance of the baboons. They have been mentioned before.
- The baboons were shown to play cards.
- Skipper dancing on King Julien in this episode resembles River Dancing.
- Running Gag: Julien never apologizes until the end of the episode.
- Kowalski's groove-stealing operation (Operation: Runaway Jar) is in 3 stages:
- At 0700 hours the next morning, They'll disguise Rico as a baboon with two pink balloons, A string tail, A cowboy hat & he'll smuggle a flare gun into the habitat with him undetected
- He'll live days, weeks, months, years with the baboons if stage one works as they accept him, until he earns their complete trust, then, he commences stage three
- Rico will shoot a flare at night after earning their trust & then, the penguins will attack from the sky in planes, It is unknown how they'll get the jar or if there's a stage four as Private interrupted Kowalski as he was saying: "Rain, rain righteousness down on those baboons, there'll be collateral damage..."
- The long plan Kowalski comes up with in the midst of this episode proves that he does in fact have a wild imagination
- Antagonist: Darla and the Other Baboons, King Julien (during his flashback)
Foul Ups, Bloops, and Blunders
- The end credits list a "Gerry", "Larry", and "Bitsy". Not sure who they are since there is no one in this episode with those names. The only "Bitsy" in the series so far is in Cat's Cradle.
Behind the Scenes
- This episode is included on the New to the Zoo (DVD)
