Trivia Edit

  • This will be the Hot Dog Guy's second major role. His first major role was in "The Extras".
  • This episode contradicts "The Castle" because Gumball knew who the Hot Dog Guy was.
    • However, this hinted that it happened after this episode and before "The Awkwardness".
  • This episode was released on Cartoon Network Video App and Video on Demand before it aired on TV on December 11, 2015.

Continuity Edit


  • When Gumball gave Hot Dog Guy a hot dog, he only ate the skin in the front, but in the next scene, a section of the hot dog was gone.
