Patrick imitating the Mocking SpongeBob meme.

  • Also like in "Pat the Horse", Patrick is going through a phase of acting likes a different animal. This episode, Patrick is acting likes a worm (dog) after accidentally eaten some worm food.
  • When Patrick is turning into different things, he turns into a chicken. This is a reference to the meme "Mocking SpongeBob", from the episode "Little Yellow Book."
  • This episode was paired up with "Pat Hearts Squid" during the original airing.
    • This episode, along with "Pat Hearts Squid," preceded to the series premieres of the SpongeBob SquarePants spin-off, The Patrick Star Show and the Nickelodeon animated series, Middlemost Post.
      • Ironically for Middlemost Post, former crew member John Trabbic had also worked on that show.
      • Additionally, the episodes were Patrick themed.
  • This episode wasn't originally scheduled to air, as "Patrick's Tantrum" was supposed to air in its place, but then a huge scheduling error occured where this episode along with its sister, "Goofy Scoopers" were scheduled at the same time, resulting in confusion until the episodes actually aired, with "Patrick's Tantrum" mistakenly releasing on iTunes and Amazon.
  • Patrick previously pretended to be a dog in "I'm with Stupid," "Grooming Gary," "Sanitation Insanity," "Spot Returns," and "Gary & Spot."
  • The scene where Squidward repeatedly ditches Patrick in the kelp forest is similar to how Mr. Krabs ditched SpongeBob in the kelp forest to keep him away from the Krusty Krab in "Bummer Vacation."
  • The "One Hour Later" time card in this episode is reused from "Wet Painters," except the time card is in widescreen.
  • It is revealed that Patrick goes into worm mode whenever he eats worm food.
  • This is the second episode to show Patrick's body dent busting through a door. The first is in "Swamp Mates."
  • This is the second appearance of Marvin after "Gary & Spot" in season 12.

Cultural references

  • The Chokey the Bear billboard seen in the part where Squidward ditches Patrick is a reference to the real life Smokey the Bear billboard.
  • The first time Patrick returns from being left in the forest, one of the stickers on his body shows he visited Burbank, California, where SpongeBob SquarePants is produced at the Nickelodeon Animation Studio.
  • The name of the episode is the same as another show.
    • Ironically, the creator of that series is named Patrick Ermosilla.
