"The Curse of Mudfart" is the sixteenth episode of the second season (and sixty-eighth episode overall), of Randy Cunningham: 9th Grade Ninja, and the fourth Halloween-themed episode of the show. It premiered on October 17, 2014.
To be added...
- This is the fourth Halloween episode, the previous three being "Dawn of the Driscoll", "Night of the Living McFizzles" and "Let the Wonk One In".
- In the opening shot, a soupsicle machine from "All the Juice That's Fish to Swim" and a license plate spelling PTRLK, the consonants from the episode's director Sean Petrilak, appear.
- This is the first episode that is mainly a story within a story.
- Another family member of Howard's, his cousin Sebastian, was mentioned.
- Running Gag:
- Characters silencing Doug.
- Characters saying "Mudfart" (with an onscreen counter).
- Randy drinks from a mug with the words "The Class of 1993", and since it is mentioned that Jason Myers' incident happened twenty years ago, it means that the show is currently happening in 2013.
- This is the third time to take place entirely at night. The first was "Night of the Living McFizzles" and the second was "Let the Wonk One In".
- The boys mentioning Mudfart's name is a reference to the 1988 film Beetlejuice.
- In the flashback, Principal Slimovitz is dressed up as the Crow from the 1989 comic The Crow.
- Jason Myers dressed up as a Gameboy console, which was released in 1989.
- This is the first episode where Randy "dies".
- Randy uses the Earth Attack in this episode, not having used it since "Hip Hopocalypse Now".
- This is the fifth episode that the NinjaNomicon did not give any lessons and make an appearance, the first was Night of the Living McFizzles, the second was Der Monster Klub, the third was Shoob Tube and the fourth was Rise of the Planet of the Robo-Apes.
- Randy's story is much better at keeping everyone in-character than Howard's impromptu story in "To Smell and Back."
