  • In Chubbs McSpiderbutt 2: The Birth of Big Bubba Babyhead, Dav Pilkey took over 2,000 photographs, but only 111 were used in the entire comic.
  • Chubbs' argument in page 182 states that Spiders can produce webs from their spinnerets, located at the tips of their abdomens/butts, which is correct. Most spiders cannot shoot webs, but a few do, like for example, the Darwin's bark spider shoots a web up to 82 feet (25 meters) long.
  • Big Bubba Babyhead's Gym Shorts came from the original Big Jim action figure that came out on 1972. The toy also shares the same name of a character in the Dog Man series.
