Trivia Edit

  • This is the first appearance of Fred Stockdale.
  • Despite misconceptions of Fuzzball being made by Mike Judge, it was Wilkes-Barre cartoonist Kevin Dougherty who created the short.
  • Two scenes of Fuzzball were altered:
    • The scene that had buses were changed from school buses to generic buses and 2 seconds of them blowing up was removed.
    • The scene where Fuzzball says to the trophy "I'm getting lectured by a figment of my imagination. That's so 'TV-Y'" was originally "That's so 'Doug'" but had to be changed because Nickelodeon prohibited cross-promoting in terms of mentioning other shows they have.
