  • Trivia

    • Dick Dastardly's plane is red, Zilly's plane is green, and Klunk's plane is blue.
      When Muttley attempts to catch the pigeon by flattening him with the anvil, he accidentally flattens Dastardly, Zilly and Klunk individually in each of their planes.
      The sound waves of Dastardly's voice quoting, "Muttley, you'll lose your medals for this!" appears to be coming out of Zilly's flattened green plane instead of Dick Dastardly's flattened red plane.
