Going by production order, this is the fourteenth episode of the first season.
This marks the debut of Gasquatch.
This is the first episode to feature a scene where all the main characters were together in the same shot.
There is a deleted scene featuring an alternate version of Gasquatch’s entrance. In the storyboard when Blaze gets the ball, he gets stuck in vines in a tree and Gasquactch sneezes Blaze out of the tree due to a bush of truckberries present, then Crusher runs away and the two meet each other. In the finished episode, Blaze lands in a mud puddle after getting the ball and Gasquatch rises out of the mud below him and Crusher leaves before the two talk as before.
When the scene shifts to Mud Fest after the STEM song, a Truck Ranger can be seen near the lower left, but they aren't officially introduced until the next episode.
When Blaze is describing inertia, his expression loosely resembles his Season 2-3 facemold.
Zeg speaks to Crusher for the first time.
Gasquatch sneezing whenever a bush of truckberries is present.
Crusher complaining about the mud.
Mud Fest is based on a real life event of the same name held in Louisiana.
The STEM song mentions Issac Newton, inventor of the laws of motion.
The music played at Mud Fest sounds similar to the theme song for PAW Patrol, another Nick Jr. show.
When Blaze is about to use Blazing Speed, his spoiler raises to let the boosters pop out, but when we see him from the front, his spoiler is down.
When Zeg hits the ball, he says “Zeg!” but the captions read “Save!”.
In one scene after Blaze activates Blazing Speed, his flame isn’t glowing.
