- This episode was originally split in two and titled The Thumb Buddies and Thumb Buddies Back. Instead, it aired as a one hour special.
- This is the final episode written by Dan Schneider to air.
- This is the fourth one hour special of the series, the first being The Danger Begins, the second being Danger & Thunder , and the third being Hour of Power.
- That makes Season 4 the only one without a one-hour episode.
- This is similar to what happened to iCarly's "iDate a Bad Boy" where it had two different titles, production codes and produced at two different times.
- The name "Thumb Buddies" might be a portmanteau of "Dumb Buddies" (referring to Lloyd & Harry of Dumb & Dumber) and thumbs.
- This is the final episode to feature the Season 4 intro.
- This is the first episode since Danger & Thunder to have more than one or two villains.
- Ray and Henry are seen as Captain Man and Kid Danger for the entirety of the first part of this episode.
- This episode reveals Space Invaders, Part 1 and 2 took place over 1 year ago.
- This is the second time Captain Man and Kid Danger are knocked out by a criminal, with the first being The Toddler in Toddler Invasion.
- Schwoz doesn't appear at all in this episode.
- This is the last episode not including Schwoz, since he became a main character in Season 5.
- Stainless Steve was never caught or taken to jail meaning that he could be in a future episode.
- This is the first episode to start immediately with a news report.
- Jerry Trainor portrays Joey in the first part, Jim Mahomey does it in the second part.
- Clips from previous episodes from Season 4 are seen in the second part of the episode, however some clips were changed if it had a green-screen.
- Captain Man mentioning fake laughter they put on TV breaks the fourth wall since the show itself uses fake laughter.
- Joey is can almost be recognized as Chewbacca from Star Wars.
- The setting where Captain Man and Kid Danger fight Stainless Steve in the beginning was filmed outside Burbank Studios, where the show is filmed.
- The car that the Thumb Buddies drive is the same car Jeff breaks into in the episode Jasper Danger.
