- This is the first film in the series that does not feature Josh, although he is mentioned and there's a photo of him.
- This is also the final appearance of Andrea, who appeared in all the films to this point.
- Alfred E. Humphreys replaces Richard Karn as Patrick Sullivan; Karn returns in the first Buddies film.
- Ellen Kennedy, who plays Tammy's mom, also played Wilma Stewart, Tom's mom.
- Principal Pickle seems to have replaced Ms. Pepper from the first film.
- C. Ernst Harth plays another guard in Space Buddies.
- Without having Josh as a physical presence, continuity seems to be a little weaker, as if it's a soft reboot.
- When Tammy shows Andrea the box of mementos from their friendship, Andrea's game-winning ball from Air Bud: Seventh Inning Fetch is inside of the box, and Tammy mentions how Andrea and her spent hours looking for it after the Timberwolves won the championship. However, Randy was seen giving Andrea the same ball after the win.
- Billy, as she is credited, is also spelled as "Billie" in the Fernfield Gazette.
