    • Competing in the Olympic Games against a cheating robot: This plot twist would also be used in another Hanna-Barbera cartoon, Jabberjaw, in the episode "Run, Jabber, Run", which also premiered in 1976 (in October).

      Later, a somewhat similar set-up would be used in the Hanna-Barbera animated version of Richie Rich, in the episode "The Sinister Sports Spectacular", which aired in 1981.
