This page is trivia about Puppy. Please add any trivia that pertain to that article.

  • When stargazing, the UFO first projects a small part of Ursa Major.
  • The song that plays during the bonding montage is Hanson's hit song "MMMBop".
  • This short film is the first work to feature extra-terrestials in the main Despicable Me universe.
  • The UFO is from Sirius, as shown by the email to the the pet's home.
    • The e-mail quietly confirms that the UFO comes from the Sirius system. This doubles as a reference to the fact it is a "puppy"- the UFO's star is the "Dog Star".[1]
  • This short has a lot of similarities to the 1982 hit movie, E.T The Extra-Terrestrial, which is also made by Universal:
    • Both male people find a space related creature (Dave with a UFO, and Elliott with E.T.).
    • Both bond really well.
    • Both have the extraterrestrials show their homes and get homesick.
    • Both Dave and Elliott manage to send a message up in space (Dave with an email and Elliott with a machine he and E.T. created).
    • Both of the extraterrestrials' kind come to pick them up later in their films.
    • Both leave a memento to the main characters (Elliott with E.T. saying he'll be in his heart, and Dave with an oversized ladybug).
    • Both of the main characters recruit the extraterrestrials with a certain food the extraterrestrials really like (E.T. with Reese's pieces and the UFO with cheese balls)
      • Coincidentally, the food the extraterrestrials like are spherical.
    • Both other people with the main characters eventually find out about the extraterrestrials (Dave with Gru, the girls, and the minions; and Elliott with his family).
    • Both leave a trail in the sky in the end of the films (E.T. with a rainbow and this film with a banana).
  • Lucy doesn't appear in this short. It can be implied that this short takes place during the time when she and Gru were still dating before the end of Despicable Me 2.
  • This is the first Illumination Entertainment's short film to be produced in a 1.85:1 widescreen aspect ratio instead of 1.78:1.
  1. After discovering the "puppy"'s home, the Minion sends an e-mail to the galactic coordinates -5.745, -6.275, -1.262. These being the coordinates of the Sirius system
