Originally airing as an animated special, Rescue at Midnight Castle was later mixed in with the episodes of the TV series, under the moniker "Firefly's Adventure".

The Moochick's song, "Little Piece of Rainbow" was removed on subsequent broadcasts and releases.

Lauren Faust, Executive Producer and creator of Friendship is Magic, reportably based many of the mannerisms of Rainbow Dash on that of Firefly - or rather her own interpretation of the character of Firefly. Hasbro had lost the rights to the name Firefly since the original series.
