Characters

Fun Facts

Explanations

  • Poppy seeds often make you feel sleepy, hence why the characters fell after the song ended. (See Real World References)
  • Although not a goof, you can see Jimmy lacks a stem after he hiccups.

Trivia

  • There are a few differences between the original and the Silly Song versions.
    • Like While By My Sheep and Ring Little Bells, this song originated from A Very Veggie Christmas and was redone as a Silly Song. However, unlike the original, it was re-recorded to match the current voices and because the audio from the original is low quality.
    • Archibald says "There's no place like home" in the original, while Pa Grape says it in the Silly Song.
  • This is the first time Qwerty appeared in a Silly Song. This is also the first Silly Song not to be sung from the main cast.
  • For unknown reasons the words "gołąbki" and "chruściki" are misspelled as "gwumpkie" and "hooscheekie"
  • This marks the first speaking appearance of Oscar (in the original song)
    • This also marks the first time Oscar is officaly named after appearing in The Blues With Larry (unless you read the credits from that song).
    • The musical instruments sound slightly different in the silly songs version.

Remarks

  • It is unknown what happened to Jerry after he ate the first dish.

Goofs

  • When Archibald asked what a paprika is, something black appears on his left side for a second.

Inside References

  • Jimmy and Jerry stating they could eat a whole reindeer is a reference to the dialogue exchange from A Very Veggie Christmas, which where the song originated.

Real-World References

  • The line "There's no place like home" after eating the cakes, is a reference to MGM's The Wizard of Oz, where Dorothy says this to get her back home. This connects to the poppy seed cakes because Dorothy and her friends went through the poppy field, which causes her to fall asleep.
