Trivia

  • The Hypnotoad is also featured on one of the discs of The Complete Collection 1999-2009.
  • In Australia, this is the only disc set of a single season to be rated "M". The rating is for Animated Violence, as opposed to the usual "PG" rating the rest got. This is due to darker and more violent episodes like "Saturday Morning Fun Pit", "Stench and Stenchibility", and "Meanwhile".
  • The commentaries were recorded before it was announced the show was cancelled.
