* This episode marks the start of [[Generation II]] in the {{pkmn|anime}}.
* The Japanese title of the episode is a reference to the slogan of [[New Bark Town]].
* On DVDhome media releases of [[S03|Pokémon: The Johto Journeys]], this episode is considered the season premiere. However, on televised airings, that title falls to ''[[EP106|The Pokémon Water War]]''.
* The English dub of this episode first aired exactly one year after the original version.
* This episode's English dub title is a reference to the old advertising {{wp|slogan}} "don't touch that dial!"
* [[Pokémon Johto]] replaces [[Pokémon World]] as the English dub opening theme.
* 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.
* In the {{pmin|Finland|Finnish}} dub, the first eight episodes of the third season had rather poor sound mixing, as some of the lines were too loud and the others were fairly quiet, and the English dub soundtrack may be silently audible in the background.
* Music from ''[[PK01|Pikachu's Vacation]]'' and ''[[M01|Mewtwo Strikes Back]]'' can be heard in this episode.
* On DVD releases of [[S03|Pokémon: The Johto Journeys]], this episode is considered the season premiere. However, on televised airings, that title falls to ''[[EP106|The Pokémon Water War]]''.
