  • This episode marked:
    • The first appearance of BJ.
  • Baby Bop still uses the very same tricycle to this day (it has barely changed, except the strings on the handlebars have been removed after this episode).
  • In Love to Read, with Barney, the "I Love You" scene from this episode is shown differently than the way it originally aired.
  • In the PBS Pledge Drive's version of this episode, the song, "Three Little Fishes" was cut, most likely due to time constraints. Instead, it transitioned to a scene where Baby Bop gets her present from BJ. In addition, the Barney Says segment was much different than the original version.
