- The title card background is similar to those of "The Getaway" and "Squid's on a Bus," except that the former is blue and the latter is orange. Those scenes also appear in rapid sliding transitions in the normal episodes.
- This was the first episode that premiered in 2020 and the 2020s decade.
- This is also the first episode to be made at that time.
- This was the first 22-minute/double-length episode that premiered after Stephen Hillenburg's lifetime.
- However if one were to include the rerun/two-part versions of "SpongeBob's Big Birthday Blowout," this is the second/third.
- This will be the last special to premiere before The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run is released.
- This is the first episode to show the area beneath Glove World!.
- This is the second time that the location Glove World! is used in an episode title. The first was "Glove World R.I.P." in season 8.
- The first promo was revealed during the premiere of "Patchy's Beach Bash!"
- Once again, Glove World! is shown operating despite being closed and replaced by Glove Universe in "Glove World R.I.P."
- This is the first special to feature Glove World!.
- This episode preceded the series premiere of the Nickelodeon animated series It's Pony.
- Promotions and several TV schedules for this episode have alternatively titled it "Escape from Glove World," excluding the "Beneath" part.
- This is the second time Mary Walker is seen without her wig, the first time being in "Glove World R.I.P."
- Much like "Glove World R.I.P.," this episode does not contain the exclamation point at the end of Glove World!'s name in the title like how it appears on the entrance sign.
- This is the first special to feature only two major characters – SpongeBob and Patrick, with everyone else being absent.
- It's unknown how mice and butterflies are able to exist underwater, especially when in "Wormy" Sandy brought a butterfly from the surface and it needed a bubble to be underwater.
- Hieronymus Glove may be based on Walt Disney since he looks very similar to him. They even reference the rumor that Walt Disney was cryogenically frozen when they reveal that Hieronymus Glove was frozen in ice.
- During the movie at the Glove World! Theater, there is a scene where three mice can be seen wearing matching ears and gloves that are reminiscent of Mickey Mouse's design.
- The movie also features a fish called Queen Elizafish the First, whose name references Queen Elizabeth I, one of the previous queens of England. However, Elizafish's design is more reminiscent of Queen Elizabeth II, the current queen of England.
- While in Glove World! jail, SpongeBob and Patrick see some pirates in jail wanting a worm to give them the key. This is a reference to a scene in the 1967 Disneyland attraction, Pirates of the Caribbean.
- Before the kids break out of Glove World! jail, Helen the Felon can be heard speaking Pig Latin when she yells "Let's amscray!" (meaning "Let's scram!")
- During one scene in the episode, Patrick's eyelids are incorrectly colored yellow as SpongeBob's.
- The opening credits do not list Rob Paulsen as a special voice guest, due to him already being credited as a seagull in The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water.
