Twice in this episode, a giant dragonfly is carrying a frog away through the sky. He appears in at least one other episode even, still carried.
This is the first significant appearance of Mayor Toadstool, Maddie, and Maddie's father Mr. Flour. Maddie also has three pollywog sisters who don't show up yet (although they can be seen in the opening for a split second, on the far right, right before the title). Sprig's hastily-made engagement to Maddie comes up in a few later episodes. Maddie's witchy activities also factor into several episodes. Toadstool has a loyal assistant, Toadie, but he doesn't speak in this episode.
This is the first episode not to take place on the day after the previous one.
Ulp! Anne searches for a picture of pizza with her phone... which has no signal! The picture must have already been on it. I'm sure it's that and not that the writer didn't think about how the internet works.
Mrs. Croaker, it turns out, runs a dairy.
Later we discover that Anne's family back on Earth runs a Thai restaurant.
In this episode, the whole Plantar family is eaten by a carnivorous tomato plant. Fortunately, the inner walls of its stem are delicious, so they just eat their way out of it.
Anne asks to join the Plantars in the Shame Cage out of solidarity. She is already growing close to her surrogate family.
Predator of the episode: giant carniverous tomato plant.

Taking pictures of your food really is a fairly common Thing, though.
