  • The song debuted around May 2004 on the Dial-A-Song service, nine months before the release of Here Come The ABCs.
  • Designed & animated by Brandon Martinez & Michelle Hammond (Colourmovie).
  • There exists two versions of the video with different endings. The second version simply features a girl walking with many balloons at the end, possibly because Disney did not want to encourage vandalism with graffiti.
  • From 0:34 to 0:43 and 1:06 to 1:17, the opening drum break of the 1972 Al Green song "I'm Glad You're Mine" is sampled, being slightly sped up in both sections.
  • According to a 2023 Tumblr post, Flansburgh created the entire song at his home studio.
