* The English dub of this episode first aired exactly one year after the original did in Japanese.
* In the dub Misty reveals that Ash slept in until four PM in the [[EP001|first episode]] while Misty doesn't specify any time in the Japanese original.
* This episode's dub title is a reference to the old advertising {{wp|slogan}}, "don't touch that dial!"
* This is the only time that the first episode of a region aired before the game the region corresponds to was released in Japan; {{game|Gold and Silver|s}} were not released in Japan until more than a month after this episode's first airing.
** Coincidentally, this is the only time that music from a new generation premieres '''after''' the opening episode of its respective region. Instead the music debuts in ''[[EP123|Spinarak Attack]]'', the first episode to air after the release of Gold and Silver in Japan.
* This episode is featured on ''Volume 16: Totodile'' from [[Viz Media]]'s {{OBP|Pokémon All-Stars|Region 1}} series.
* This episode is featured on ''Pokémon All-Stars: Totodile'' from {{wp|Magna Pacific}}'s {{OBP|Pokémon All-Stars|Region 4}} series.
* The book ''[[Go West, Young Ash]]'' is based on this episode.
* When [[Professor Elm]] talks to {{an|Professor Oak}}, he mentions an article in a magazine called {{DL|Magazines in the Pokémon world|National Pokégraphic}}, which is a reference to the real-life magazine ''{{wp|National Geographic (magazine)|National Geographic}}''.
* In the original dub of this episode, as well as a few episodes later in season 3, Who's That Pokémon displayed the same graphics used in season 1 and season 2. But this was changed in the newer dubs that re-aired later on in the same year as it originally aired.
