This episode was originally meant to be a Mother's Day-themed episode but was changed to focus on Linda's birthday after some uncertainty over when the episode would air. (see Behind the scenes) "Mom, Lies, and Videotape" will be the show's first Mother's Day-themed episode set to air in Season 7.
This episode takes place on June 3 as Tina inadvertently mentions that Linda's birthday is on this date in "The Kids Rob A Train."
The dishwashing liquid in the Belchers kitchen is branded "Down", a parody of Dawn. This is the first time in the series that the label has been seen in such high detail.
Linda gets dropped off by the guy with the horsebox attached to his truck outside the former location of Caffrey Taffy Company's factory that was demolished at the end of The Belchies.
When Linda is running from Deirdre a store named Kimballton's is visible, named for background cleanup artist Kimball Shirley.
Two of the cougars (the "cougar doodle" and the one with brown hair and blue earrings) from "My Big Fat Greek Bob" can be seen in the Chalk Festival when Linda is running away from Deirdre and Linda says "No, I'm not! You're the one stepping all over everything!"
On July 16, 2015, it was announced that John Roberts had been nominated for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance for voicing Linda Belcher and Tim in this episode.
Deirdre's name is misspelled as 'Dierdre' on her name tag attached to her lanyard at the chalk festival.
