  • This is the first episode to have to use a censored bleep.
  • Principal Block is played by Kurtwood Smith, best known for his role as Red Forman on That 70's Show, another FOX sitcom; much like Block, Red was often a stern authority figure and was also the first person to use a word that had to be bleeped on the show.
