Trivia

  • It is revealed that the names for Craig's staff and purse are "The Staff of Grandad's House" and "The Purse of Holding", respectively. These names aren't used in the series until "Secret in a Bottle".
  • The pilot's continuity with the series is dubious, as Craig flashes back to meeting the Sewer Queen in "Jessica's Trail", but there are many differences between the pilot and the series.
    • Craig is 9 years old in the series[1] but the synopsis says he is 10.
    • Grandad is called by his real name, Earl.
    • Many locations don't exist or have completely different names, such as the Log, which was renamed to the Stump.
  • The Cartoon Network Arcade mini-game "Camp Cardboard" is based on the pilot rather than the series.

  • In the pile of objects that fell into the sewer, a doll can be seen that resembles the titular character of Steven Universe.
  • Adjacent to the doll there is a Jason Mask from the Friday the 13th franchise.

Errors

  • Craig's map spells Herkleton incorrectly as both Herkleston and Herkelson. The correct spelling is Herkleton.
  • A label on Craig's map reads "Animal Burial Ground" the first time he takes out his map, but when he takes it out again later it says "Pet Cemetary"[sic].
