  • This episode satirizes Al Gore's campaign against climate change.
  • Some of the stalactites and stalagmites in the Cave of the Winds are clearly shaped like penises. Though blurred out on Comedy Central, it is uncensored on Netflix.
  • When Eric Cartman is eating the treasure while drinking it with water, his water bottle reads "WOTTUR".
