Trivia

  • The song Cartman was trying to get people to sing was based on 'na na hey hey kiss him goodbye' by Steam.
  • In San Francisco a tram drives past with ads for "Tom's Fudge Factory". In this tram a guy can be seen that looks like an adult version of Kevin Stoley. This same guy is seen again protesting in "A Million Little Fibers", saying: "Yeah, we want our money back, you dumb towel!".
