  • If you look extremely close to the scene where Ambassador Mbola is about to give his speech to the people and on the far glimpse of them some of the audience are the villains of Robotboy and those that appears are the following: Felonious Hexx, General Yakitori, Brainy-Yak and Agent Kalaschnikov in a pink dress. See picture below:
  • The name of the episode is a pun on the The Manchurian Candidate, 1959 political thriller novel by Richard Condon.

    Look extremely carefully at the villain cameos!

  • The line "Remind me again why we're friends" said by Gus said again on the episode "Destroy All Robots" but by Tommy.

  • This is the fourth episode where Robotboy does not say a single word.
