  • This video entitled the titles, Lowly is Missing, Lowly on the Loose, Where Oh Where Has Lowly Worm Gone? or Where in Mother Goose Land is Lowly Worm? (the parody version of Carmen Sandiego).
  • This video along with Richard Scarry's Best Learning Songs Video Ever would also be in the compilation video, Richard Scarry's Best Sing-Along Mother Goose Plus Learning Songs Video Ever!.

  • This also marks the final episode where Huckle Cat, Mother Cat, Father Cat, Lowly Worm, Freddie Fox, Hilda Hippo, Lily Bunny, Larry Lion, Rhonda Raccoon, Miss Honey, Ralph Pig and other characters make these appearances.
  • This also the episode of the series, where the plot does not takes place in Busytown in most of the episode.
  • This also the only episode of the series, where the plot takes place at night in Busytown, except for daytime before nighttime in Mother Goose Land.
  • Old King Cole's voice would be sounded like Simon/Peter, The Rich Man and others from the future video series, Cherub Wings.
  • Even though the female child voice sings "The cow jumped over the moon", the moon doesn't show up during the "Hey Diddle Diddle" segment and doesn't appear at the end either.
  • This is the only time Mother Cat sings nursery rhymes featuring Huckle Cat (Little Jack Horner and Star Light, Star Bright) and Father Cat (Sleep, Baby, Sleep).
  • This is the only time the kids or woman offscreen in a background sing nursery rhymes.
  • This is the same time for Mother Goose nursery rhymes from Mother Goose Melodies, Old King Cole, Wee Sing: Nursery Rhymes and Lullabies, Rock 'N Learn: Nursery Rhymes, William Wegman's Mother Goose, The Truth About Mother Goose, Barney Rhymes with Mother Goose, Tickety's Favorite Nursery Rhyme, Merry Mother Goose, Teletubbies: Nursery Rhymes, The Wiggles: Pop Go the Wiggles! and The Wiggles: Nursery Rhymes.

  • Huckle's voice is a little older than other videos. His voice sounds like a big boy.
  • This video marks the last of several things:
    • This is the last time the Narrator narrates the introduction.
    • This is the last time the Narrator says, "Welcome to Busytown!" in the opening.
    • This is the last time the Narrator says, "The End" before the credits start.
    • This is the last video that it has been produced by Jumbo Pictures.
    • This is the last time Huckle's voice is high when he says, "Yes! Yes! Yes, yes, that's him!" and "Whoops! This isn't the way out." But his voice is low and normal.
    • This is the final episode the Narrator sounds like Sterling Holloway or Shel Silverstein, and likely the last time to have the offscreen Narrator narrate the video series.
    • This is the third and last musical video.
    • This is the sixth and last video of the Richard Scarry's Best Videos Ever series.
    • This is the last time there was a song at the beginning and the ending.
    • This is the last time the background music is synthesized.
  • In Mother Goose Land, Huckle Cat is the emperor, but in Busytown, he's not the emperor.
  • The background music sounds like the classical music by the composers, Johann Sebastian Bach, Antonio Vivaldi, Johann Pachelbel, Domenico Scarlatti, George Fredrick Handel, Antonio Salieri, Muzio Clementi, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Franz Xaver Süssmayr, Jean-Philippe Rameau, Joseph Haydn and the early years of Ludwig Van Beethoven, Carl Maria von Weber and Franz Schubert.
  • On the future DVD releases, the instrumental version of Sing a Song of Sixpence in the credits will be replaced with the score from the PBS Kids TV series, Liberty's Kids, or the instrumental cue from the episode, Jack Jumps Up, and others from the children's TV show, Thomas and Friends.
  • Stock animation of the sign plane title, "Richard Scarry's Best Silly Stories and Songs Video Ever" replaced with "Richard Scarry's Best Sing-Along Mother Goose Video Ever", is reused from Richard Scarry's Best Silly Stories and Songs Video Ever.
