  • The "Stop That Cake" song features in this episode.
  • Stock footage from A Super Magnet is used.
  • The hat that Sarah puts on in her room is the same one from her Spinning-Girl costume in A Treehouse.


  • When this episode is shown on BBC iPlayer, the subtitles misspell Mollie's name as Molly.
  • Nobody is on board the Pencaster Flyer's carriage, but because stock footage from A Super Magnet is used in the shot after the train sets off after the cows have been cleared from the track, Sylvia and Sarah Gilbertson can be seen in the carriage with suitcases even though they are supposed to be back home in Greendale at that moment.
  • As Alf goes round to the back of the trailer to free Arthur, the tractor suddenly starts edging slowly backwards.
  • In the first shot when the cake is brought to the sorting office, PAT 2 has no shutters on its sides and PAT 3 is not on its helipad.
  • At the sorting office the trailer is no longer hooked up to the tractor.
  • As Arthur rides away from the sorting office on the motorbike, a small shadow next to Alf's trailer suddenly disappears but then returns when Pat flys up with the cake.
