[edit] Trivia

Old Toons menu entry
  • Mission Control is the "Lost Puppet Jam", apparently set to be released following Puppet Jam: Vitamins/Celebrities. A link to "Mission Control" appeared on the Toons menu on June 30, 2004, but led nowhere. On July 5, 2004, it was unceremoniously removed from the site. Then on July 8, 2005 it was released for viewing with the message on the main pages being "Lost Puppet Jam".
  • Originally, the Toons menu said that Mission Control was 1:00 long, but on the current version of the site it says it is 1:06.
  • This is the only cartoon to not go in chronological order on the Toons menu. Instead, it goes with the other Puppet Jams.
  • The chords for the song are a simple "I, IV, ii, V" progression—G, C, Am, D, to be exact.
  • The DVD version contains a few more seconds in which they decide to do the song with drums.
