- The title is a parody of A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens.
- This episode, along with the video game Ariel: The Little Mermaid, are the only two times that Ariel's full polyp form is shown.
- Ursula makes a reference to Cinderella when she says "Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo" to pretend to give Sebastian a strength and intelligence enhancement spell.
- A running gag in the episode is whenever Zeus wins against Sebastian during competitions against him, a trio of cheerleaders (three anthropomorphic crabs) shouts "Hooray!" as they cheer for Zeus' victory.
