Niblet: Oh, random puppy dog I just found, you sure are a lot of fun!
Chief: I'm not random, my name is Chief. My mom says I'm a natural born leader. I'm what you call a self-made pup!
Niblet: You made yourself? Gee, I don't know that much about science, but that sounds really painful.


  • After telling Lucky about Abraham Lincoln's fire hydrant, Niblet says "The More You Know..." followed by a glowing dog tag that zooms into the screen like a shooting star.
  • Apparently Niblet doesn't understand what the President of The United States is; Squirt told him the president "runs the country," but Niblet didn't understand that, so Cookie told him "What Squirt means is that he's in charge, like Lucky." This leads Niblet to believe that the President was a dog.
  • President Bigman is inspired and based on Barack Obama.
