Fun Facts

Moral

  • Make decent choices, whether it's helping out your neighbors or helping out community.

Trivia

  • This is the last episode for several things:
    • The last episode to have two stories until Little Things Matter.
    • The last episode to have a studio audio commentary.
    • The last episode to feature Laura's original design and the last episode where she is voiced by Keri Pisapia.
    • The last episode to not have Scooter until Noah's Ark.
    • The last speaking appearance of Ermie Asparagus.
    • The last appearance of Ellen.
    • The last episode where a character says "It's time to talk about what we've learned today" afterwards, only "Let's see if Qwerty has a verse for us today" is said before the What Have we Learned Song plays.
  • This is the first episode where Deluxe Media Services does the DVD authoring.
  • Bob being portrayed or referred as "Bob the Builder" would later become a YouTube meme.
  • There were a few differences between pre-production and the final version:
    • In the teasers, it only showed "The Good Egg of Gooseville," meaning either that was going to be the only story, or it was going to be the main title instead of "The Little House That Stood."
    • Originally, Bob in "The Little House" was going to have bricks. But this was changed by Brian due to that it gives the wrong message that "you only need bricks to build a house" and wanting to go more to that "you can use any type of material as long as you have a firm foundation."

Remarks

  • The credits display Belinda Whittles, even though she does not actually appear in the show. This is done in case anyone in real life has that name.
  • The credits state that it was released in 2012, but it didn't release until March 2013. Though this is likely when it was completed.

Goofs

  • Madame Blueberry does not have her pearl necklace when she first appears in the Silly Song.
  • Jumping Jack's bowtie is missing when he helps Jack and Jill up the hill.

Inside References

Real-World References

  • The figure of Mother Goose is an imaginary author of a collection of fairy tales and nursery rhymes often published as Mother Goose Rhymes.
  • Miss Minchin calls Bob as the builder. This is a reference to Bob the Builder, a British children's animated television show created by Keith Chapman.
    • The show's distributor, HiT Entertainment, had previously released a few VeggieTales videos and one album more than a decade before this episode was produced, after the acquisition of Lyrick Studios. Because Big Idea had not made a partnership with HiT Entertainment (primarily because HiT was not usually interested in working with properties they did not own), Big Idea turned to Warner Home Video to serve as their new mass market distributor in 2002; this reference most likely pokes fun at the company's lawsuit against Big Idea, which was one of the major reasons for the studio's bankruptcy in 2003.
