  • This is the first APM track to be used in the show that would be associated with "sad" scenes.
    • However, the first instance of this track in the series, when SpongeBob is increasingly feeling dehydrated upon visiting Sandy's house for the first time in "Tea at the Treedome," does not occur when any character is sad. This episode was scored very early in the series' production, and many tracks were not yet associated with locations, characters, or narrative contexts. It also plays throughout except its ending.
  • This is the most used non-sound effect APM track in the series, with approximately 100 uses.
    • This is also the second most used non-sound effect track in the series, behind "Grass Skirt Chase."
  • "Clams" and "What Ever Happened to SpongeBob?" are the only two episodes to play this track in its entirety. Although, "Tea at the Treedome" was very close to playing the full track.
    • "Clams" is also the only episode to play the full track without any kind of alteration.
  • Between "The Way of the Sponge" and "Snail Mail," this track took almost 5 years to return.
  • This track has slowed down in usage since season 8, and since season 11, the track "M'Wanna" is used instead in similar narrative contexts.
    • "Snail Mail" is the only season 9 episode to play this track.
  • Season 11 and season 12 are the only seasons where this track does not play.
  • In the game SpongeBob's Next Big Adventures, the music is played whenever the player is in the Chum Bucket grounds.
