Episode trivia[edit]

  • This is the first episode which did not feature Ami or Makoto since their respective introductory episodes.
  • When Usagi and Chibiusa were playing leapfrog and Chibiusa landed on Usagi's back, there was one single frame that showed a naked SD Usagi.
  • The viewfinder on Mamoru's camera listed the current date as June 12, 1993. While this matched up with Usagi's age, it was inconsistent with the passing of the seasons since the beginning of the series in 1992; the summer of 1993 already occurred once in Sailor Moon R, making this the second summer of 1993.
  • During the picnic, Usagi poked fun at Mamoru and Chibiusa for being reluctant to eat the bell peppers included in their lunch. Japanese children typically dislike bell peppers, much as western children dislike Brussels sprouts or broccoli.
