A school legend, T.J.'s idol comes back as a teacher, now known to the students as Mr. Dude.


  • Miss Finster seems to remember The Dude from his elementary school years (in the 1980s), however, Miss Grotke seems to have just met him. This may suggest that she didn't begin teaching at Third Street School until the very late `80s or early `90s.
  • At the beginning of the episode, Mikey refers to Swinger Girl as Swinger Kid.
  • This episode was cut from the Italian dub.
  • This episode was paired up with "Bonkey Fever" outside the US.
