- The design of the Mayor is completely different from his appearance in later episodes of The Powerpuff Girls.

- Unlike most episodes of the series, this short does not open with the City of Townsville, but with Townsville Mall.
- This short originally had the title "The Whoopass Girls," like Craig McCracken's student film, but when he got complaints from Cartoon Network, he along with two other friends quickly changed it into "The Powerpuff Girls".
- This cartoon was hand-drawn and produced at Animal House studios in Japan.
- In the barbecue scene, Blossom's hair is brown instead of red.
- The episode was also part of The Space Ghost Coast to Coast special "Presidents Day Nightmare," in which Craig McCracken along with Van Partible and Genndy Tartakovsky promoted their own shorts (Powerpuff Girls, Johnny Bravo and Dexter's Laboratory, respectively).
- "The Whoopass Girls" ending is also used for this short.
- In the Adult Swim series, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, during the episode "Mayhem of the Mooninites," a mall named the "Powerpuff Mall" resembles the mall shown in this short.
- The Salami Swami also makes an appearance in the later Powerpuff Girls episode "Slave the Day."
