  • Song: The Numberblocks' Ten Green Bottles
  • Three, Four, Eight, and Nine are the only Numberblocks who have at least two arrangements in this episode.
  • This is the fourth time Ten stays arranged vertically through the entire episode.
  • This is the last episode to premiere in May 2017.
    • This is also the last Numberblocks episode in Series 1.
  • Nine and Ten's counting lines are used in the game Numberblocks Make & Play.
    • The wall scene and the bottles are also used in the game.
  • Ten is the last character to speak in the first season of the show.
  • The bottles are shown to not be fragile as the bottles fall from high places and do not shatter.
  • The song lyrics and images for this episode appear in pages 6-9 of the CBeebies Special Magazine Issue 113. However, it has some changes:
    • "Hanging" is changed to "sitting".
    • Eight sings "not safe" as "safely".
    • The grizzly bear doesn't change.
    • Six sings Flying instead of Falling.
    • One's line "But if one green bottle spins around" uses extra words, making it "But if one green bottle should start to spin around".
      • The extended line is sung by Six in the final verse, despite it not being sung.


  • In the number 5 verse, the bottle labeled 5 grows a daffodil. But in the number 1 verse, the bottle with the daffodil is labeled 1.
  • When a whale swallows the boat, the fox is outside the boat.
  • In the number 2 verse, the 2 bottle's shootings are orange, but when the Ones meet up, the shootings are red.
  • If one pauses at the right moment, before the whale eats everyone, the one holding the bottle labelled 1, (not the daffodil bottle) and the 3 front Ones holding bottles are seen clipped in front of the whale's nose for half a second.
  • When the whale shoots everyone out, The teddy bear disappears and some of the bottles are nowhere to be seen before the whale appears.
