- Dr. Flurry's act of "Grand Theft Gelato" is an allusion to grand theft auto, the act of stealing or attempting to steal a motor vehicle.
- The name "S-Cape" is based on the term "escape."
- The name "Thingmabob" is based on the word "thingmajig."

- The episode's original title was Larry-Boy and the League of Superheroes.

- In the trailer, the signal shown was at nighttime, but in the actual episode, it is shown in the daytime.
- This episode was released in 2012, the same year as another superhero team-up movie - Marvel Studios' The Avengers.
- The Fear-Dar is also known as the Refrigerator, as seen in the newspaper.
- While Alfred's biggest fear was not revealed/scanned in this episode, it was said on the VeggieTales website that his biggest fear was power outages, which was a reference to Larry-Boy and the Fib from Outer Space where he accidentally unplugged his computer.
- This is the second episode to have a lesson in handling fear, the first being Where's God When I'm S-Scared?.
- In the stored cages at the LarryCave, we can see the following items:
- A replica of the Larry-Boy suit.
- A key.

- This is the first episode for several things:
- The first and only Larry-Boy episode to have a Silly Song.
- The first Larry-Boy episode where Bob gets a major role (excluding Larry-Boy: The Cartoon Adventures).
- The first Larry-Boy episode where Junior, Mr. Lunt, and Petunia are superheroes.
- The first episode where Bob and Larry get a video chat that is not from a child.
- The first Larry-Boy episode to be set during winter.
- The first episode released in the Fall since The Wonderful Wizard of Ha's not to be Christmas related.
- The first Larry-Boy episode to have no visible changes to the LarryMobile.
- The first episode not to use Miss Minchin since her debut appearance.
- This is the last episode for several things:
- The last appearance for Larry-Boy in his third costume until LarryBoy and the Cape-Coat Caper.
- The last episode both John Wahba and David Pitts worked on.
- The last time Qwerty gets a video chat to date.
- The last episode to feature both 4:3 fullscreen and 16:9 widescreen viewing options on the DVD. Starting with the next episode, 16:9 widescreen becomes the only viewing option.
- The last episode where Sony DADC does the DVD authoring.
- This is also the last episode where their New Media Solutions division does the DVD authoring.
- Some of the superpowers/gadgets Junior tried out before becoming Ricochet are:
- Magnetic Manipulation
- Throughout the episode, the cable on Larry-Boy's plungers switches from the nylon cable texture to the basic yellow rope.
- Despite Mayor Blueberry stating previously that signals can't be seen in daylight, the League's signal can be seen perfectly in daylight.
- Even though snow is technically frozen water, Junior's super suit never shorts out from snow the same way it does from liquid water.
- When the Fear-Dar scrolls through biggest fears, one of the biggest fears is called Escargo, though it is unknown what it is.
- Somehow, Jimmy doesn't leave a mess after he ate the chocolate cake up in the air.
- Although the shopping list mentions a "mustache comb," it was never seen nor used.
- On the newspaper shot, the same newspaper "Local Boy Helps League Save The Day!" is shown twice in the background.
- Although climate change does affect weather, it's highly unlikely it would cause it to snow in early September.
- One shot shows Qwerty's shadows missing.
- One LarryCave shot has shadows missing.
- When Junior was sitting with his suit off, the first two shots had missing shadows, and on the third shot, the shadow was back.
- The live Qwerty introduction had one shadow disappear.
- Larry-Boy being frozen in ice is a reference towards the third LarryBoy Cartoon Adventures Super Short.
- During the closing countertop, Larry-Boy mentions winning the Dance-a-thon after Larry-Boy! and the Fib from Outer Space!
- Some of the inventions in the science museum are reused from Blunders in Boo-Boo Ville.
- The scene Larry-Boy shows up from the dark is a reference to Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight" trilogy.

- Go-Gurt is a yogurt brand by Yoplait where you can eat yogurt through a tube.
- Angry Birds is a video game franchise used for mobile devices.
- This episode came out later in the same year as when Marvel premiered The Avengers. Both feature a team of 5 or 6 superheroes teaming up to stop the same bad guy.
- When Scooter arrests the penguin minions, he commands, "March, penguins!", as a reference to the nature documentary movie, March of the Penguins.
- ThingamaBob using gadgets to fight crime is similar to the 1980s cartoon Inspector Gadget.
- Junior would later use rockets in another Larry-Boy episode.
- Yet another episode would have a lesson in handling fear nine years later.
