  • The Cinema Anglerfish is one of few anglerfish that appear throughout the series, the others being the Glow fish from the episode "Rock Bottom," Ma Angler from the episode "Trenchbillies," and the angler fish from the episode "Pat the Horse."
  • He is drawn more realistically than most of the other fish on the show.
  • It is strange to find an anglerfish like him at the ocean level Bikini Bottom resides. Anglerfish should really live deep in the abyss levels.
    • It is possible that he lives in Rock Bottom, and works at the Bikini Bottom's cinema.
  • Despite being male, he looks more like a female anglerfish, possessing a lure which male anglerfish don't have.
