  • In the original, Oogla Boogla was a girl. In the remake she is now a boy.
  • In this episode, Oogla Boogla was not singing and dancing before the characters saw them, they just greet them instead.

  • In the original episode, Boo is laughing after Josh says his name, even though it scares him a little. In the original episode, he was more frightened and the music was also much spookier.
