  • This episode is an adaption of a comic based on the series in Disney Adventures from October 2000, titled "Food for Thought!", written by Bill and Cheri Steinkellner, penciled by Steven Butler and Gary Baseman, inked by Butler, with letters and colors provided by John Green, featured on pages 84-87. The comics can be downloaded here.
    • In the comic version, John and Marsha (characters on the soap opera Mr. Jolly and Pretty Boy watch) appear. They would appear again in the movie.
  • It is unknown who provides the voices of most of the male and female students who responded to Scott's claim that they were eating dog food, as their voice actors were not credited.
  • Moral: Don't jump to conclusions and spread rumors. 


An English and a widescreen Tagalog Dub version exists online. The English version is missing a few seconds near the end of the episode, but the Filipino version has the episode in full.
