It originally aired on Teletoon in Canada on November 3, 2002.
JFK and Abe both run for School President. Meanwhile Scudworth gets the school a corporate sponsor, X-Stream Blu.
The episode begins with Cleo and JFK presenting an impassable moat surrounding the Special Ed classroom to the student body. Joan remarks that she is surpirsed at the fact that Cleo didn't fill the moat with acid. Abe replies that Cleo says that acid would kill the piranhas. Gandhi says the moat could be a good community building oppourtunity, and strips off his clothes to go skinny dipping in the piranha moat.

- This is one of the few episodes, where Abe is addressed as "Abraham", rather than the diminutive.
- First episode with the Thinking Docks.
- The title of this episode is a pun on the sequel film, "Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo".
- Abe references to the 1950's sit-com, Happy Days and it's constant use of the TV tropes, Tempting Fate and Rock Bottom.
- One of the students calls Gandhi a Smurf, after his skin becomes unnaturally blue and he wears a white beanie.
- Scudworth says "I watched the first two-thirds of the MC Hammer Behind the Music, and if there's one thing I learned about money, it's that it never runs out!" Behind The Music is a show about the biographies of musicians, and MC Hammer is a rapper best known for the song "Can't Touch This". Contrary to Scudworth's claims, MC Hammer filed for bankruptcy in 1996, going from being worth 33 million to being in debut for 13 million due largely to his extravagant spending.
- The style of Marilyn Manson's Food Pyramid song is presented in the same style as songs from Schoolhouse Rock.
- Abe and JFK competing for school president is a reference to both of their respective clonefathers being former American presidents.
- While Abe wonders why he's so afraid of running for school president, a painting in the background is shown, depicting The Lincoln Assasination.
- Wally and Carl inform JFK that the original John Fitzgerald Kennedy was, as they quote, "A caring leader, and he inspired a generation of young people." JFK responds, "I thought he was a macho, womanizing stud who conquered the moon!". Both are correct.
- The statement "Ask not what your student body president can do for you... Ask what" you can do to your student body president's body." JFK makes during the candidate speech event for the Student Body President election is a reference to a quote the real JFK said during his inaugural address "ask not what your country can do for you ask what you can do for your country".
- In most of the crowd shots, during Abe and JFK's final election debate, Lyndon Johnson is visible, wearing a blue shirt. However, in the shot, where the crowd realizes they've been tricked by the X-Stream Blu, and glare at them in anger, Lyndon Johnson's shirt is discolored as red.
