- This episode features the "Rocking Rocket Man" song.
- The rocket's back wheels are LEGO wheels.
- The episode's title is a little misleading as only the rocket's nose cone is red.
- At the beginning of the episode, Pat is driving PAT 4 even though at this point he has not got a special delivery, so he should really be driving PAT 1.
- Throughout the episode, the body of water in Pencaster keeps on being referred to as a lake even though it is part of the River Penn.
- When Ted arrives at the harbour, Lizzy has Meera's voice.
- Pat says "Hold on, Jess." and "Ready, Arthur." without moving his lips.
- When Pat cries "Help!", he is smiling.
- When Bill says "It's nearly 5 o'clock.", his body language indicates that he is pointing to a watch on his wrist, even though he clearly does not have one at all.
- The shot that we see through Lizzy's binoculars is the same one where Pat agrees to do the challenge for Ted.
- Throughout some of the scenes at the harbour, many of the characters' voices are mixed up when they are all talking at once.
- The challenge is supposed to be done in a minute and it is indicated that Pat manages to do it with a second to spare, but realistically Pat takes two minutes and seven seconds.
