Rupert and the Space Pilots is the 49th episode of Rupert (TV series) and the 10th episode of season 4.
- At the policestation at Constable Growler's office, there are wanted posters hanging on the Bulletin board on the wall. One of the posters says ''Wanted: Dale, Shcit'', possibly a reference to former Director Dale Schott. The other one only says ''Ross'', possibly a reference to Sandy Ross, the executive of production for the series.
- This is the only time in the series that constable Growler's family is mentioned and seen.
- Willy Mouse makes a short cameo in this episode when he runs away from Freddy and Ferdy Fox
- Goof: When Constable Growler meets the aliens, he politely shakes hands with them. In that scene, his leftarm and shoulder are covering a part of his face, instead of being attached to his torso. This is a animation error that somehow wasn't noticed in production.
