Springening Piñata Parties 2016
In the April Fools' 2016 Springening Piñata Party, it involved Easter Gargantuars. They threw more Easter Gargantuars instead of Easter Imps at the player's plants, and threw them at the fourth column rather than the third column. However, these Easter Gargantuars had significantly less normal damage shots than other Gargantuars, did not throw more Gargantuars, and strangely made Imp sounds. They were probably reskinned Imps.

- Parties 6 and 9 are the only Beghouled levels that allow the Puff-shroom to upgrade into something other than Fume-shroom.
- In the 9th Party, there are Sun-shrooms, but they do not produce sun. This is because it is meant to be upgraded to Moonflower, which would power up Dusk Lobber. The game presumably has sun production off, like with Modern Day - Day 34.
