This episode aired as the fourth part of a week long summer event advertised as "Island Adventures" by Cartoon Network.
Robin eavesdropped on the Titans and is called a creep, similar to his habits in "Obinray".
Cyborg, Beast Boy and Raven begin talking to sports equipment with faces on them which Starfire says the skull of a volleyball player told her is crazy, referencing Wilson the Volleyball from the 2000 film Cast Away.
The backdrop "Crazy Desire Island" is a reference of the opening sequence from the late 70's show Fantasy Island.
The way Robin talks and how he dresses in a suit is a play on a character named Mr. Roarke (played by Ricardo Montalbán) also from Fantasy Island.
