101 Dalmatian Street – Mr Fuzzy's not dumb censorship


  • One of the photos which Mr. Fuzzy looks at is of Pongo and Perdita.
    • One of the other photos is that of Dylan's test pitch design.
  • Doug being covered in soot is a possible homage to the climax of 101 Dalmatians where the Dalmatians disguise themselves as labradors.
  • While this may be their first appearances, neither Clarissa nor Hunter have any spoken lines of dialogue.
  • This episode bares an identical title with one from its predecessor series, 101 Dalmatians: The Series.
  • This is the first episode to air on a Friday, at least as a sneak peek.
  • In Southeast Asia, the line "The poor, dumb creature" was censored, with "dumb" being muted, only in the English audio track.
  • As a sneak peek, this is the only episode to air in 2018.
