  • It was the first Kidsongs video to be released in mostly white boxes with a color-coded box flap depending on a video. All the previously released videos came packaged in a newly designed boxes.
  • In "Fishin' Blues", Eddie was thrown into the water while trying to teach the kids how to fish. Also, in an attempt to catch some, David pulled up a boot and Dannon and Ryan each caught two cans.
  • In "On Top of Spaghetti", it was all about the runaway meatball that Josh sneezed out which was up to Andrea to find it and return it to her plate.
  • Olivier picked "Found a Peanut", Suzanne picked "Pop Goes the Weasel", Katinka picked "The Ants Go Marching", and Tarrish picked "Ninety-Nine Bottles of Pop". The latter song was chosen as the first song in the Campfire Medley. It was followed by "Pop Goes the Weasel", then by "Found a Peanut", and then by "The Ants Go Marching".
  • Dannon played the bugle tune "The British Bugle Call" on the horn when the flag was raised up. Nicholas, Vladimir, Suzanne, and Ingrid, who were Eddie's Eagles competed against Terrence, Jensen, Hillary, and Chloe who were Chris's Chipmunks. Chloe competed against Nicholas, Hillary who held onto Suzanne competed against Vladimir who held onto Jensen, and Ingrid competed against Terrence. Dannon was then mentioned with Myisha (her first appearance primarily seen laughing and turning with a hilarious look on her face), Catherine, and Josh. They danced in a really silly way.
  • Sh'Vaughn was best mentioned dancing with Jensen in the song, "When the Saints Go Marching In".
  • This is the last 80's Kidsongs video.
  • This marks the first appearance of the 80's-90's Kidsongs cast Katie Polk.
  • Songs from this video can be seen in The Kidsongs Television Show.
  • Emu Proteus Orchestral, Yamaha DX7 and Roland D-50 were used for the first time during the music. Composer Michael Lloyd uses Emu Proteus 1, Yamaha DX7 and Roland D-50 sounds. The musical instruments in the video get more modern than the other nine. Michael Lloyd also edits the drum and percussion tracks together on his emulators.
  • During the credits, Michael Lloyd's first name was misspelled, using 'ea'. This is the only error in the video.
  • Katinka Chun made an appearance in the Dance Workout with Barbie video as a dancer alongside this video and the next one.
  • In the next video (Ride the Roller Coaster), Raquel, Suzanne, Nicki, Dannon, David, Katinka, Sh'Vaughn, Hillary, Myisha, Jensen, Nicholas, Ryan, Katie, Tarrish, Catherine, Andrea, Joshua, and Terrence remain while Travis, Ingrid, Chloe, Olivier, Ernestina and Vladimir are replaced by the new cast.
  • It was the last appearance of Ingrid Dupree as a Kidsongs kid before she appeared in an episode of Kids Incorporated (the show that competed against Kidsongs) as a reporter.
  • The original Kidsongs logo from 1985-1989 was seen on all the kids' shirts. Various colors depend: they were pink, orange, yellow, turquoise, blue (only in When the Saints Go Marching In) and purple.
  • This marks the last LP of the records and music industry and the early Kidsongs music. The listeners would move on to cassettes on the next video.
  • Unlike her appearances in Kidsongs: A Day at the Circus and Kidsongs: Ride the Roller Coaster, Tarrish appeared in this video all by herself. The other two videos that she appeared in would involve either one or more of her siblings.
  • This is the last episode to feature the 1985-1989 Kidsongs logo in the orange and white background.
  • This is the second Kidsongs video to have a "The End" card after Kidsongs: A Day with the Animals.
  • Production for this video took place in 1988.
  • Chris Lytton, who previously appeared as a leading young Kidsongs kid in The Kidsongs Television Show, played one of the camp councilors in this video.
  • This video takes place at Camp Tumbleweed, is now known as Tumbleweed Day Camp in Los Angeles, California and Franklin Canyon Ranch, is now known as Franklin Canyon Park in Beverly Hills, California.
