When Roy asks for Georgie's autograph he requests it be made out to Bob Young. Bob Young was a writer for Dinosaurs.
Roy says that when he was little, his father took him out to the woods and he never saw him again. But in "The Howling", Roy says that his father gave him his pen and pencil set that he received on his howling day, meaning Roy would have to be around 15 when he got it.
In this episode, Charlene gets her scent gland bump on the back of her neck. However in the following episodes, her bump is never seen again.
In syndication broadcasting, when all the plants have been destroyed, after Fran tells Earl "we can't live on Ho-Hos!", they would have followed through with Earl's response; the Baby's in-between follow up line, "I can!" is cut.
The first time we see the mating dance performed is in the title episode "The Mating Dance". However the official mating dance that Earl does for Fran is entirely different from the classier version Robbie does in this episode.
Despite that this episode never aired on Disney Channel, it would make a references that the last single in 2004 which was actually produced by Lil' Jon performed by Jenna/Ciara called "Dirty Dancin'" may have been an example on why it never aired or was shown on television.
Charlene does not appear in this episode.
This is the first episode in which Baby refers to Earl as 'Daddy', instead of 'not the Mama'.
Robbie's voice gets deeper as his muscles enlarge and his spikes come in as a side effect of eating the Thornoids. Though this episode was done to show the unpleasant results of taking steroids, typically when men take them, their voices tend to become higher and more feminine.
According to the end credits, Robbie is suspended for scratching the car for 6 to 10 years.
The show Earl and Roy watch to test its intelligence level would later be repeated in "Baby Talk", but only the audio dialogue, the actual show was never shown on the TV again.
During Earl's turnaround election speech, he picks up a puppy that he names "Checkers". This is a nod to President Nixon's dog who shared the same name.
Fran tells Earl first Robbie had his howling, then Charlene's tail grew in, then they all went on the game show, but actually they went on the game show "Family Challenge" BEFORE Charlene's tail grew in.
Goof: The Baby wants to get his caveman cracker back from the cookie creature so tries to trap him by holding another cookie right outside his hole. If he could get another cookie in the first place, why did he still battle for the one taken?
The episode is a parody of typical sitcom "Very Special" episodes.
The plant Robbie discovers and that is eaten throughout the episode acts similar to marijuana.
This episode probably should've been after the 4th Season final episode of the series called "Changing Nature". This episode shows the dinosaurs bones and skeletons were found buried after they had been extinct.
(As he is trying to come up with an invention for the science fair) Sneakers with a pump in them...what a stupid idea!
His idea alludes to the Reebok Pump, a basketball shoe with a pump built in to the tongue, which was popular during the early 1990s.
During the Ask Mister Lizard segment, the jet engine being tested is marked "McDino Douglas". This is a play on the name of the aerospace manufacturing firm, McDonnell Douglas.
One of the board members is named Mr. Mason Dixon. The Mason-Dixon Line is used as a cultural and ideological divider--often when talking about sensitive topics such as those addressed in this episode--between the Northern and Southern United States.
