"The Ollie" is the nineteenth episode of Season 5 of The Amazing World of Gumball. It is the 175th episode overall.
Gumball teaches Darwin everything he knows about the world of skateboarding.
- The fourth wall is broken when Darwin says that Gumball's head is always seen at an angle because he would look weird from profile.
- The skateboarding scene was animated and directed by Simon Landrein and produced by Passion Paris, making him and the studio the sixth guest animator in the show.
- This episode was released on Cartoon Network VOD services in December 2016 before airing on TV.
- The skateboard shop's name, Ollie Vendor, is a reference to the wand shop in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, called Ollivander.
- The way the skateboards react to Darwin with the last one glowing is reminiscent of the scene in the same film where the wand chooses Harry.
- The music that plays when Gumball and Darwin enter the shop is also reminiscent of the film's score by John Williams.
- When Gumball was doing a flashback on how skateboarding came to be, the guy that invented it is President Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the USA.
- Gumball and Darwin are shown to not know how to skate in this episode, but they could both skateboard perfectly well in "The Crew."
- The Hand Security Officer's mouth doesn't move when he tells Richard to stop walking.
