Trivia

  • The pilot episode originally aired on another Nickelodeon television show, Special Delivery.
  • In the pilot episode, Sponge Harris was played by David Tom.
  • After the pilot episode was picked up for a full season, all of the actors had to audition for their roles again.
  • Michael Bower, Danny Cooksey, and Venus DeMilo appeared on Wild and Crazy Kids in 1992 as part of the Salute Your Shorts green team.
  • Michael Bower and Danny Cooksey (yellow team) faced off against Megan Berwick and Heidi Lucas (red team) in a special Season 2 charity episode of Nick Arcade. Bower and Cooksey won the opportunity to go into the video game and cleared the first two stages (Haunted Museum & Enchanted Flight), but ended up losing in the third stage to the video game wizard "Mongo" because Bower kept standing still or running into things that caused them to lose too much power. At the end of the episode, Kirk Baily also made a cameo appearance.
  • In every episode there is a hidden rubber chicken visible.
  • Michael Bower's character was given the name "Donkey Lips" after he was discovered performing sloppy fellatio on an unidentified camera man prior to the production of the first episode.
  • An "awful waffle" is an oft-mentioned form of camper-enforced punishment on the show. Despite large amounts of assumptions of what one may be, the closest scene on the show to describe an awful waffle involves a falsely accused camper of stealing things who begins to receive the punishment. The camper is held down on a table, someone grabs a racket, and someone gets syrup. The camper is let go before the awful waffle takes place.
  • There is a Boy Scout camp in the Pittsburgh Area called Camp Anawanna. [1]
  • There was a summer sleepaway camp in Monticello, New York called Kutsher's Camp Anawana from the 1960's until 1992.
  • In the episode, "The Radio Call-in Contest", Sponge Harris quite clearly says "I'm pissed off because I'm not as smart as I thought I was." The profanity was never removed from the episode.
  • The band Rilo Kiley featured a song called "Salute My Shorts" as a hidden track on their album Take Offs and Landings. This is in reference to the fact that band member Blake Sennett (Blake Soper) played character Ronnie Pinsky on the show.
  • Steve Slavkin, the show's creator, also directed a few episodes of the 2003 Power Rangers series, Power Rangers: Ninja Storm.
