Fun Facts Edit

  • Sharing is caring.

Trivia Edit

  • This episode was made after sharing became the most demanded topic for an episode in a BigIdea.com poll. This was referenced at the beginning of the episode.
  • The episode's original title was Ivan the Benevolent Viking.
  • This was the first episode for several things:
    • This is the first episode Tim Hodge directed.
    • This is the first episode to be in a different frame rate (although the content is always in the main North American NTSC region), and has been kept the way ever since (with the exception of compilation videos and personalized DVDs).
    • The first VeggieTales episode to be released on both VHS and DVD.
    • The first episode known to be dubbed in Spanish since The Toy That Saved Christmas.
    • The first episode released during the time American president George W. Bush was in office.
      • This was the last episode for several things:
        • The last time Larry had a lisp. He would later get it again in The Lost Tooth, though it's because of his tooth being missing.
        • The last episode to use most of the same crew from Larry-Boy and the Rumor Weed.
        • The last VeggieTales episode to be distributed by Lyrick Studios and their only DVD release of the show.
        • The last appearance of Lovey.
        • The last episode to feature the original Silly Song title card. 
        • The last regular episode until The Ballad of Little Joe.
          • In the original alternative opening for the story of Lyle, Archibald talks about other musicals done by Gilbert and Sullivan along with poster recreations for said musicals. (See Real World References)
            • The posters did eventually make it into The Star of Christmas.
          • This episode uses both water and rain effects, as well as spotlight. Tim Hodge states this was a practice for the crew since this was during production of Jonah.
          • Sven hopping on the oars was a gag by Marc Vulcano.
          • The pea in Olaf's helmet was done by Joe McFadden.
          • The kids at Big Idea Productions voice the pea monks. This included:
