Quotes[]

  • Cliff Hanger: (reading from his trusty survival manual) 'If you hear two scientists yakking about a yodeling yellow yak, put on a yellow yak costume and start yodeling.' Why didn't I think of that?
  • Leona: Yo! Yes?
  • Lionel: Right?
  • Leona: Author?
  • Lionel: Chris Raschka
  • Leona: Illustrator?
  • Lionel: Chris Raschka
  • Leona: Talented.

Notes[]

Goofs[]

  • During "Very Loud, Very Big, Very Metal", the second shot of the man a shovel like a guitar standing next to a dump truck is mirrored and also, the second shot of the man playing air guitar standing in front of a cement mixer and the shot of the garbage truck are used twice (the second mentioned shot being replayed immediately after it is shown), only mirrored, so, as a result on the former two, both men (who are obviously right-handed) are playing left-handed and the text on the mixer and dump truck is flipped and backwards.
  • The title of the song (and episode) is "Very Loud, Very Big, Very Metal", but Leona incorrectly says it as "Very Big, Very Loud, Very Metal".
  • The song is said to be about construction equipment (construction vehicles (which is what it is said to be just about, when it's more than that) and tools (arc welder, drill, chainsaw and so on, as well as machine tools like lathes) and other construction equipment), when it's actually about that stuff, but also about non-construction vehicles like emergency vehicles like fire trucks and police cars, garbage trucks, hot dog trucks and pickup trucks, and lawn tools like a lawnmower.
