  • Sergeant Murphy, Bananas Gorilla, Fireman Ralph, the pig and mouse firefighters, Miss Honey, Mr. Frumble, Mr. Fixit, Farmer Fox, Farmer Alfalfa, Freddie Fox, and other Busytown people from the previous videos are absent in the episode.
  • This title of the video was named after three books, Richard Scarry's Animal Mother Goose: 100 Favorite Old Rhymes Illustrated in a New Manner, Richard Scarry's Best Nursery Rhymes Ever, and Richard Scarry's Best Mother Goose Ever.
  • It's unknown that either it's series finale of the show, or it's the last Richard Scarry's Best Videos Ever episode to be released on VHS.
  • This video entitled the parodies, Lowly Is Missing, Lowly on the Loose, or Where in Mother Goose Land is Lowly?.
  • This marks the final episode where Lowly Worm doesn't have a speaking role in the show.
  • This also marks the final episode where Huckle Cat, Lowly Worm, Lily Bunny, Larry Lion, Rhonda Raccoon 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 and Father Cat's voices would be sounded like Simon/Peter, The Rich Man, Solomon, Jesus's disciples and others from the future video series, Cherub Wings.
  • This is the same time for Mother Goose nursery rhymes from Wee Sing: Nursery Rhymes and Lullabies, Rock 'N Learn: Nursery Rhymes, Barney Rhymes with Mother Goose, Tickety's Favorite Nursery Rhyme, Teletubbies: Nursery Rhymes and many more.
  • This is the same bedtime from Blue's Clues episodes, Blue's Big Pajama Party and Bedtime Business, the Blue's Clues book and CD, Goodnight Blue, Barney videos, Bedtime With Barney: Imagination Island, Barney's Pajama Party, The Upside Down Show episode, Camping, Kidsongs: Good Night, Sleep Tight, Teletubbies: Bedtime and many more.
  • 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 on other locations, 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 last time there was a song at the beginning and the ending.
  • The background music sounds like the classical music by the composers, Johann Sebastian Bach, Antonio Vivaldi, Johann Pachelbel, George Fredrick Handel, Muzio Clementi, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Joseph Haydn, and the early years of Ludwig Van Beethoven and Franz Schubert.
  • Also, on the future DVD releases, the instrumental version of Sing a Song of Sixpence in the credits will be replaced with an orchestral and shortened version of the song, Really Useful Engine used in "Thomas and the Magic Railroad", which is played during the credits. This also happens on the future DVD releases of Richard Scarry's Best Busy People Video Ever. Or, the instrumental version of Sing a Song of Sixpence in the credits will be sounded like the score from the future PBS Kids TV series, Liberty's Kids.
  • 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" would later be reused from Richard Scarry's Best Silly Stories and Songs Video Ever.
