This was a pilot for a new show to be titled 905-Wild. It was created by Jack Webb but was never picked up as a series.
This episode featured the original opening titles (Season 1/2) but is extended to include images for the Animal Control characters. Each of the characters involved has their own title and they are credited as "Also Starring". The opening sequence ends with a still shot of the Los Angeles County Department of Animal Control officer's badge.
Right before the "wake up" tones sound, we see an outside shot of the station with the flags up already. Mike Stoker puts the flags up in the morning. But they haven't gotten up yet at this point for him to do so.
Goof: After returning from the magic trunk trick, Roy and Gage back into the station. The main fire truck is the original truck used in Season 1/2. When they leave for their next call, the truck is back to the current fire truck.
At the big fire the facing from the building falls down on the antique engine and Roy and John go down to check it out. But there is no fire activity going on. Also it appears to be in pretty good shape. But later at the station the old engine looks like it did when they first got it.
This was the first and only time a firenet was used on Emergency.
Goof: The marker on the squad status board at Rampart shows Roy and Johnny's first rescue as an accident, not a fire when it is place in the hospital column.
Goof: They treated a fire victim who was 15 without parental consent.
Goof: Roy informs Rampart on the initial contact that they have inserted an airway. They can't do this until a doctor authorizes it. This was established in previous episodes.
The prop boat PT 73 they had on the rescue at the studio has the same number as the boat on McHale's Navy which was also filmed by Universal Studios.
Chet drove the squad from the place where John and Roy rescued that guy from the ice freezer to Rampart, you didn't see Chet in the squad or in the hospital, and you didn't see him riding back with John and Roy back to the station.
Code I List
Johnny Broken Leg and facial laceration from a gas explosion.
Goof: Roy and Johnny go in to search a building with a gas leak and don't wear SCBA gear.
Dena Dietrich who played Nurse Betty also played Mother Nature in the Chiffon Margarine commercials. On the Blooper DVD, there is a shot of her with Robert Fuller. She says, "Mr. Fuller, it's not nice to fool Mother Nature." They both cracked up.
Goof: After Dr. Early authorized the Ephenedrine for the boy with the bee sting and 51 acknowledged it, Dr. Early then also told them to add Benedryl. But 51 again acknowledged just the Ephenedrine not the Benedryl.
Although Roy's wife Joanne appeared in the pilot episode, the producers seemed to go out of their way to ensure she didn't appear on camera for the rest of the series. This episode is a good example of that, with the firehouse television showing static during Joanne's scene on the game show.
Code I--Johnny falls off a skateboard into a cactus patch.
In the opening scene Johnny is mopping the floor and listening to the dispatcher. The dispatcher says that there is a child stuck on an elephant. Then the dispatcher cancels some responding units saying that it was an accidental fire alarm caused by a Samoan fire dance. Johnny looks kind of puzzled.
When the crew is shown preparing to respond to the first call, Marco does not have a mustache.
Goof: After De-fibbing the patient, they check the scope, but the patient has not been hook up with the electrodes. To get a reading the paddles would have to be in contact with his body if there were no electrodes. They do this twice with him.
