This episode was meant to introduce Hasbro's new doll Regine, but the doll never made it to the toy stores.

The character Regine was originally named "Paris".

This episode was originally named "Your 15 minutes are up".

Regine is a big fan of Jem and the Holograms, she has all their albums and videos. The best thing that ever happened to her was when Jem and the Holograms asked her to design their clothes for their upcoming tour.

Regine is young and had alot of success very quickly, and according to Danielle she needs to learn some discipline.

Rio is interested in fashion.

Shana thinks Regine's designs are fabulous and beautiful, and Regine loves Shanas design.

Regine's mother makes hand printed fabrics.

The Stingers have their album on a CD, this was pretty early for CD:s.

Danielle has a butler.

Regine admires Yaki's fashions.

Here Harriet's last name is spelled with an "E" at the end, but in earlier episodes there is no "E".

Minx consider's the Holograms "the enemy".

The Stingers were planning a saturday morning TV show, but Riot decides to cancel it when the network wants his character to be more likeable. This might have been an injoke, because the Stingers were something of the new "bad guys" and perhaps not very likeable at first glance.

The song "It Depends On The Mood I'm In" by Jem and the Holograms is re-used. Previously appeared in the episode "In Stitches".
