From police chases to the inside scoop on Daisy the Donkey, Channel 6 Elmore News has all the top local stories. Experienced newscaster Kip Schlezinger brings the latest news, sports and weather, even when there is absolutely nothing to report.
The episode aired in Africa before it aired in the United States.
This is Kip Schlezinger's and Mike's first major role in an episode.
Initial airings of the episode in Africa had Kip portrayed as a live-action human as per usual with the series. Later airings in other countries chose to omit this design choice in favor of turning him into an anthropomorphic, talking newspaper, because according to Ben Bocquelet, nobody outside of him and Richard Overall "liked the live action version."
This change also prompted a different ending. The original cut had Kip attacked out of his chair, whereas the newspaper version has him straightening his transcript and shooing away a make-up artist.
