Notes and Trivia[]

  • Moral: Good things come to those who are able to be patient and wait. If you rush through things, it can make a mess and cause lots of trouble.
  • This is the second time someone becomes impatient and refuses to wait. The first time being in Roller Coaster Dragon, when Wheezie was looking forward to the roller coaster dragon a lot for a long time, but it was full by the time they were at it, so she had to wait until it comes back. She was impatient waiting for it, saying how desperate she was to ride it, kept asking when it will come back multiple times, which angered the ticket taking gnome, and had trouble getting her mind off it until it returns. Then there is "Let's Dance," where again, Wheezie has trouble waiting for something (this time to open a box).
  • This is the fifth episode that has to do with anyone's birthday, followed by "Ord's Unhappy Birthday," "A Picture's Worth A Thousand Words," "Just Desserts," and "On Thin Ice", and following "Feliz Cumpleaños, Enrique."
  • Being paired with "Hide And Can't Seek," this aired on the same date in which the 9/11 terrorist attacks happened.
