Trivia

  • Prior this episode, Rex Smythe-Higgins III has won the Tour de Pond competition 4 years in a row.
  • Grandpa and Rex Smythe Higgins have another confrontation in the episode "The Pig War".
  • This episode was originally going to be in Season 1 but was held over for some unknown reason.
  • The episode title could be a reference to popular bicycle race Tour de France, an annual bicycle race since 1903.
  • The race is being sponsered by the "Hobby Hut" this could be a reference to retail arts and crafts chain Hobby Lobby.

Goofs

  • In maritime terminology: The S.S. prefix in ship names stands for "Steam Ship". So technically, Grandpa putting "S.S." in his sailing ship's name is inaccurate.
  • Rex's boat is called the hyrdoplaner 4000 but, it is a model of a cruise ship and not a hyrdoplane.
