  • Bobby Coleman, who plays Norman in this episode, has already appeared in another episode of R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour: The Series from season 1, entitled "The Walls".
  • Tyler gets karma for giving Norman a wedgie by having to give himself a wedgie in his boxers.
  • This episode is quite similar to the 1971 movie, Willard, its 1972 sequel, Ben, and the 2003 remake of Willard. All three of these movies are based off of the 1969 short novel, Ratman's Notebooks. However, in all three of these movies and the book, the animal antagonists are not insects, but rats.
