There are 23 known mistakes in this episode.
The way Zira fiddles with a jerboa as she sings " Lions Over All" is similar to Scar's behavior with a mouse in The Lion King. It is possible that this was a reference to the movie.

In addition, the way Zira watches the ants crawl across the rock and then swats them off is similar to what she did in The Lion King II: Simba's Pride.

While Jasiri takes Kion to her clan, a small bit of animation from Never Judge a Hyena by Its Spots is reused.
This also marks the first time in Disney history that Nuka, Vitani and Kovu have been shown in any Lion King media since The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride in 1998. For Zira, it's the first time she is shown since the video game The Lion King: Simba's Mighty Adventure in 2000.
