Fun Facts


  • This marks the first episode of Laura's redesign.
  • This is one of the few VeggieTales episodes not to have music composed by Kurt Heinecke.
  • Guessing that the events the Groovy Brothers broke up happened in 1975, and it was 38 years ago at the time, then the episode takes place at least in 2013. Which is about a year before it was release.
  • There were a few differences between the pre-production and the final.
    • Lanny was originally going to have a brown wig.
  • This episode is dedicated to Eric Garner.
  • This is the last episode that Lisa Vischer voices Junior.


  • Despite Phil Vischer's wishes not to use magic on the show, Lanny did perform some in the episode.
  • This is one of the few episodes the Silly Song appears in one third of the run.
  • The drawing Junior drew of Laura in the beginning was in her previous design.
  • The DVD cover states it's around 45 minutes. But the entire episode runtime is 52. However, if you remove the runtime from the opening, Silly Song, and credits altogether, it's actually 45 minutes.

Real World References

  • The episode's title is a spoof on the 1977 film Saturday Night Fever.
  • The entire story plot is similar to the 2011 Muppets Movie. There, a main character tries to reunite an old band back together so they can save a historic landmark from being torn up by a rich tycoon.
  • The second record album in the credits is based after the Beatles' Abbey Road.
