  • The book chapter this episode is based on is "Paul".
  • This episode adapts the chapter "Paul (book chapter)" in a number of ways:
  • In the books, Leslie's pigtails were being pulled. In the cartoon, it was Maurecia's ponytail.
  • In the books, Paul was the one pulling. In the cartoon, it was Todd.
  • In the cartoon, Todd gets sent home early on the Kindergarten bus. In the books, he doesn't(most likely because he wasn't mentioned in the chapter) with Paul going on the Kindergarten bus instead.
