  • Trivia

    • It is a bit unlikely that it would take 117 years (1875 to 1992) for invisible ink to become invisible, even if the deed was buried underground for that time.

  • Notes

    • This episode was released on the VHS entitled Back to the Future: A Friend in Deed and The Money Tree.

    • In this episode we meet Biff's great-great uncle Thaddeus and his sister-- who of course are brother and sister to Buford "Mad Dog" Tannen from Back to the Future Part III.

    • Clara and (animated) Doc do not appear in this episode. Jules says they have used the DeLorean to go and see Hamlet-- performed by the original cast!

  • Allusions

    • :
      The earliest film where a woman is tied to railroad tracks by a villain is Barney Oldfield's Race for a Life (1913). Not sure if its occurrence in the popular arts predates the movies, but it wouldn't be surprising.
