Little Monsters Trailer

  • The alternate name of the episode is "Hot Mamas".

    WB's promo

  • The original air date for this episode was November 16, 2003. A year later, Chris Halliwell was born on this day.
  • This is the only episode in the TV series where Darryl gains powers. He gains powers again in the comics when magic changes sides.
  • Paige uses the phrase "raison d'être," which means "reason for being." This becomes a theme for Paige, and she uses the phrase again later in the season.
  • This is the first time that the top of the Golden Gate Bridge appears in the show.
  • Piper taking care of the beasts wound is reminiscent of a scene from the Disney movie Beauty and the Beast.
  • There is another reference to Chris being Leo and Piper's son when Leo says "I'm a father first", the camera shows Chris smile.
  • Piper says she doesn't see her self having anymore kids anytime soon but she gets pregnant with Chris just a few months later.
  • Piper appears to break the forth wall for the second, but not the last time, as she says "I ad lib a lot." to the Beast. 
  • Phoebe threatens to bind the Manticore Baby's powers. This suggests that not only witches can have their powers bound, but also demons.


  • When Paige and Phoebe are knocked over by the large monster, the rug moves itself from being spread across the floor to scrunched up under them between shots.
