  • The two men from animal control resemble Horace and Jasper Baddun from One Hundred and One Dalmatians.
  • This episode is similar to the Doug episode "Doug's Fat Cat", where Doug has to take care of Roger's pet cat, Stinky, to find out "he" is a "she" after having kittens.
  • This episode was part of a special "Stuart-themed" Disney's One Saturday Morning block, where all three main shows from the block premiered episodes with a character named "Stuart" in them. Aside from "Operation Stuart", Disney's Doug had "Quailman vs. The Annoying S.T.U.A.R.T.", while Pepper Ann had "Presenting Stewart Waldinger/Pepper Ann's Life in a Nutshell".
  • This was the only episode written by Katy Ballard.
