Pups Save Jake's Cake Trivia
- This is the second episode that involves someone (Jake) having a surprise birthday since "Pups Turn on the Lights" (Chase).
- The way the pup vehicles form a line connecting together resembles a train.
- The pups going up a big hill and telling themselves that they can do it is a reference to a children's storybook The Little Engine That Could.
- Coincidentally, this episode's working title was "The Pup Train That Could".
