Voice CastEdit


  • This episode was infamous for having three alternative titles displayed in listings and media related to it. While it appears the intended title by the writer was "The Trouble with Triples" (to reference the Star Trek episode "The Trouble with Tribbles"), the other two titles were widely circulated in Adult Swim's listings and used by other crew members. The DVD uses both "Troubles with Triples" and "The Trouble with Triples", the latter in the liner notes.
  • There was brief pondering if this episode could be used as the season 3 finale, but nothing came of it. Had it been the finale, it is unknown if the ending actually would have been continued beyond a gag. The official word on the ending as it is is that it was not meant to be followed up on, although it was also teased that it "might" be revisited in a later season.
  • An unused layout/character artwork by Karacas was tweeted during production of the episode and showed the Triplets against an outer space-like background with neon symbols, similar to what was seen in the Time Court.
  • Various videogame references are shown.
