Trivia Edit

  • This episode is officially known as the first episode of Squidbillies, though the original Rough Cut Pilot aired on April 1, 2005.
    • This pilot was originally going to air on November 7, 2004, but was replaced with the first episode of "Perfect Hair Forever", a another show on adult swim in the time slot that had been advertised as the premiere of the Squidbillies pilot. Unknown to the audience at the time, the existing Squidbillies pilot had fallen behind and wasn't ready to air.
    • Williams Street continued advertising the Squidbillies premiere up to and including the bump directly preceding the show, "Perfect Hair Forever", Later after it's airing, a bumper card appeared, apologizing for the apparent scheduling mixup only for it to fade out to a fake "Technical Difficulties" card featuring a selection of Perfect Hair Forever's characters, after this the "Anime Talk Show" was showed.
  • This is one of few episodes not to have an Early truck opening, this later happens in a few more episodes like the Christmas Special, "Rebel with a Claus", "Mephistopheles Traveled Below to a Southern State Whose Motto Is 'Wisdom, Justice and Moderation'", "Gimmicky Magazine Show Spoof Parody About Dan Halen" & The second Christmas Special, "The War on The War on Christmas".
  • During the Baby Hammock & Baby Death Trap Segments, the segment are shown to be in Live-action, as the footage does show a Live Action Woman & her Infant for the Commercial, this is one the first times this is shown.
  • This episode, "Office Politics Trouble" & "Pile M For Murder", are the only episodes in the show, to feature Space Baby.
  • This is one the few episodes where The Narrator, narratives the entire episode.
  • Some of the continuity established in this episode is actually abandoned in Later episodes of the show, while this doesn't effect the characters & location, such as the Season 10 episode "Trackwood Race-ist", when there was a continuity error in a flashback where a younger Version of Rusty was asking his father Early, to join the Woody Scouts, this Ignores the Pilot's continuity such as Early being trapped in Prison for 15 Years & Rusty being Raised by Wolves.
