Too bad, WordGirl! Or should I call you 'Wee-Girl'? -Dr. Two Brains in Shrinkin' in the Ray
- The name of this episode is a pun on the 1952 musical comedy Singin' in the Rain.
- The shrink ray affected WordGirl in other episodes as well. In WordGirl and Bobbleboy, WordGirl again was made tiny for a brief period. In A Little Bigger WordGirl, she was accidentally made slightly larger because the henchmen had been playing with the settings.
