  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Although the title of this episode is "Night Mail", none of the action shown takes place at night.

    • The Cannonball Express was built by Baldwin Locomotive Works which is the name of a real builder of railroad locomotives, and between 1825 and 1956 built over 70,500 locomotives. The Cannonball Express is Number 1.

    • The opening titles end with "and Cinders", showing Casey Jr.'s dog. This credit will get dropped from the opening titles after the second episode.
