Minor Characters

  • Fancy Monster
  • Tourists

  • In this episode; Bubbles uses her math skills to move the boat, Buttercup tames the slime dog monsters, and Blossom aggressively takes down a robot with brute force.
  • Bubbles' challenge is a reference to the iconic "Fox-Chicken-Grain" riddle/game.
  • This episode marks the second time in the 2016 series where Bubbles impersonates one of her sisters, the first time was "Green Wing". In this episode, she is impersonating Blossom.
  • To defeat their challenges; Bubbles acts like Blossom, Buttercup acts like Bubbles, and Blossom acts like Buttercup.
  • One lesson the girls learn in this episode is that they will always need each other's personality and skills to solve a problem. (Whether it be physically or mentally)
  • This is the second time in the 2016 series where another character (Bubbles) impersonated Blossom. The first time was in "TTG v PPG" where Robin impersonated Blossom to trick Mojo Jojo.
  • Each of the Girls pick their movie for their movie night:
    • Blossom's movie "The Spreadsheets of Madison County", a parody of the 1995 romantic-film The Bridges of Madison County.
    • Buttercup's movie "Bearnado", a homage of the 2013 sci-fi thriller Sharknado.
  • The Robber Baren is vaguely similar of the character Dick Dastardly from the classic Hannah-Barbera cartoon Wacky Races along its 2017 reboot.
  • This is the first time Buttercup had bulging biceps in the reboot.
    • The tattoos on Buttercup's biceps are a reference to the two veterans Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Amelia Earhart.
    • When Buttercup named her biceps, it is similar when she named her fists from "The Powerpuff Girls Rule!!!"
  • The way the slime monster dogs multiply similars from the original series episode "Divide and Conquer" when the Amoeba Boys were multiplying as well.
