For all we know it had been months in planning and the production started the night Abe escaped. So far we've seen the story told mostly from Abe's point of view (something I really hope Soulstorm changes).
Also, the entirety of Abe's Oddysee + Exoddus appears to take place in a span of just 4 to 5 days. He escapes at night, breaks back in the following night, is rescued (I assume) later that same night. Leaves for Necrum that same morning or the following morning at the latest. Arrives there 'by dinner' at dusk. Escapes the mines early morning, arrives at the Brewery by dusk and escapes that same night.
There's certainly not weeks between all those events.
However, the most likely explanation for all of this is probably that the Mudokon Pops in SW are just easter eggs and weren't meant to be canon at all. There's plenty of plot holes in the series if you start looking carefully. This is one of those things one shouldn't look at too seriously.
