  • This is the first hour-long special of the series.
  • Members of the crew (such as Ego Plum) referred to this as "essentially the Harvey Beaks Movie", to the point where they brought in a smaller "Big Bang" orchestra to record the songs:
    • "The “Steampunks” special was essentially the Harvey Beaks Movie. I treated that music no differently than I would have treated a feature film score. We wanted a big, big sound; we also wanted some traditional old Hollywood-style orchestration. So we had to fill Studio X in Seattle with tons of brass, woodwinds, and strings. It’s my favorite thing I’ve gotten to do on Harvey Beaks."


  • The intro to this special is the same as the season 1 intro with a few changes, including the addition of gears to the characters.
  • Michelle is still not born in this special but only appeared as a cameo appearance as an egg in the beginning of Part 1 and near the end of Part 2.
    • The reason for these changes are due to this episode originally being set to air before "The New Bugaboo".
    • And also, in Part 1, Miriam was holding the unborn Michelle and saying "Doctor!" , This might be a sneak peek at the first Season 2 episode where Michelle hatches.


  • The tavern scene is a reference to the Cantina scene in Star Wars: A New Hope, with Fee in a Han Solo-esque role.
    • Harvey makes a reference to the song "Never Gonna Give You Up" in the same scene.
  • Moff saying, "Fly, my Fredd Bots! Fly!" is a reference to the Wicked Witch's line, "Fly, my prettys! Fly!" from The Wizard of Oz.
  • The plot itself is reference to AstroBoy 2009 movie as both of the protagonists live in a flying city and later on both fell in a junkyard.
