  • "The Krusty Bucket" and "Squid's on a Bus" were originally going to be the last episodes aired, but were replaced with "Sandy's Nutty Nieces" and "Insecurity Guards" for unknown reasons, and aired on April 22 - 23, 2020.[citation needed]
    • If the original episodes did air, that would have made it the first time an episode aired in Australia or New Zealand before airing in the United States.
    • Apparently "Squid's on a Bus" was released digitally on Foxtel and the Nick Play Australia and New Zealand.
    • However "The Krusty Bucket" and "Squid's on a Bus" were not the first episodes to be aired in Australia & New Zealand before the United States; the second was "My Two Krabses" and the third was "Pineapple RV."
