Trivia Edit

  • "Spear" is one of the few times in which Bob does something right in Prometheus and Bob.
  • Last appearance of Lava. The Lava segment and the Henry and June segment proceeding it were removed from Nicktoons airings due to copyright issues. This resulted in the episode being banned in the US, though it ran internationally without these bits.
  • This is one of a few episodes to feature two Prometheus and Bob segments in one showing.
