• First appearance of Gary.
  • Apparently Timmy considers Vicky an actual monster, but considering her actions against him it makes sense.
  • Gary sounds exactly like Chester when he says "Oh no you don't!". This may be because both are voiced by Jason Marsden.
  • When Gary trips Timmy at the school playground, Timmy gets a large chunk of grass in his mouth. When Timmy spits it out, it turns into a perfect mini-dirt castle.
  • Timmy apparently thought there was a monster in the closet while he still had Gary until he was 6 when he found out the monster was just a sweater.
  • It's revealed that since Gary is technically part of Timmy's imagination, he can make Cosmo and Wanda grant his wishes.


  • Gary Conrad - Gary's name is a possible reference to the director of the episode.
  • Teletubbies - The TVtubbies (one of Gary and Timmy hobbies) appearance is similar to the Teletubbies, also the name is a spoof of them.
  • Operation - The game that Timmy wants to play with everyone "Surgeon General" is similar and parodies Operation.


  • When Cosmo and Wanda are roped, their hands are still free. But after their ears are plugged with TVtubbies, their hands are trapped.


Mr. and Mrs. Turner: Go pie, go!

Trixie Tang: Hi!
Timmy Turner: (looks around confused)
Trixie: No, silly! I said hi to you.
Timmy: Really?
Trixie: Yeah, uh... I know you've had a crush on me and I was wondering if you wouldn't mind...
Timmy: Going steady? Taking you to a dance? Being sweethearts through high school? Going to college together? Getting married? Remaining deeply in love as we grow really old together and spend our golden years traveling the world and extending our lifespan with the advanced technologies that will be available in the future until we eventually crumble into atoms and we're scattered across the cosmos where we'll float together for all eternity?
Trixie: Um... no. Introducing me to your cool new friend!

Gary: [explaining to Timmy what the box Timmy is in is] This is the box you put me in for 5 years!!

Cosmo: Cool! ...I mean 'Meow'... I mean 'Woof'! Yeah, let's go with that!

Vicky: [Sneezes Gary out] I hate cool!
Gary: [Open the emergency door] Hey, the door is open![Laughs manically, but stops himself] Laughing manically.

Gary: [Timmy is hugging him] Public displays of affection... not cool.

Timmy: Gary, Vicky. Vicky, Gary!
Vicky: Twerp!!!!!
Gary: Aah! Not Cool. Aah! No!
