Trivia

  • The opening two shorts of Part I both deal with the aftermath of 'The Food Festival', while the final short - 'Master Planner' - leads directly into 'The Bowling Championship' - making the third short, 'Post-Modern', unique - as it is the only one of the four not to connect directly to any of the series' major stories.
  • 'Master-Planner' is - to date - the only content from the series (not counting "Welcome to Cheston Village!") to be told from the 1st Person. In the same story, "The Editor" makes a reference to the NBC revival of Brooklyn Nine-Nine; this was originally intended to mark the series' cancellation by FOX - but was changed at the last minute before publication when the show's revival was announced.
  • Mister Snoutnose is the only main character not to appear at all in Part I.
  • "Skinny" Flint's ongoing rivalry with Mayor Jameson has been a driving aspect of at least two 'Bite-Sized Bits!' - one for each Part, respectively ('Community Service' and 'Seen and Not Heard').
