Notes and Trivia
- This is Gildart Jackson's first appearance as Gideon, and also of Magic School.
- When all the heads are put on something, an object is always there to hide the hole. Sigmund's head was on a table cloth, Piper's was on a cabinet with her body in it, and then Paige and hers were on books with Phoebe's on a map.
- Kaley Cuoco, who portrays Billie Jenkins, starred in a movie about the Headless Horseman, which, ironically, was called "The Hollow", which is also a name of an ancient vapor on Charmed, seen in Season 4 and Season 8.
- This episode shows the most people being orbed by just one person.
- This is one of four episodes that has the word "Halliwell" in the title.
- This episode scored 4.8 million viewers.
- Piper is the first sister to be beheaded, conveniently hiding Holly Marie Combs's pregnancy for the majority of the episode.
- Phoebe discovers that Chris is Piper and Leo's second son, but only if he can get them back together in time.
- The title of this episode is a reference to the story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" (1820).
- When Paige refers to Gideon, she uses the name Obi-Wan Kenobi, a character from the Star Wars saga.
- Piper threatened to turn Slick into a toad with a spell, invoking a common stereotype of witches.
- The introduction of a Magic School is often attributed to the popularity of Harry Potter, which is mostly set in a school for wizards and witches.
- Zachary was able to tap into Piper's power and freeze the other students, although her power doesn't work on good witches.
- While Piper's head is perched atop the cabinet, her hair moves into different positions: around her neck, off to the side and behind her head.
- When the students are frozen, they're together; when Phoebe and Chris return to the Manor, Zachary is separated from the others and they are in different positions.
- When the sisters' heads are on the table, you can clearly see the hole under Phoebe's head.
