    • TRIVIA (6)

      • The Hooterville Airplane Company had a contract with the US Army (dated January, 1918) to build 32 planes, but they only delivered 26. That leaves the factory six more to build to fulfill the contract.

      • The Hooterville Airplane Company built the JN-4, known as the "Jenny".

      • Alf and Ralph claim to have given up $1.50/hour jobs as astrophysicists in Bleedswell to build airplanes in Hooterville.

      • Lisa serves Oliver and Eb cod fish balls. Actually, they're just hotscakes rolled up into a round lump.

      • According to the ad published in the "Hooterville World Guardian", some of the fringe benefits offered by Astro Digitronics include unlimited sick pay, free psychoanalysis, a year's supply of cracked crab, and ten paid holidays.

      • Lisa is awakened from her sleep by the "Written by" credits, and Mr. Haney has the "Directed by" credit on the pull-down sign on his truck. The next shade he pulls says "Haney's Non-Stop Bus-the scenic rout to Bleedswell".

    • QUOTES (5)

      • Alf: He's just sore at us 'cause we didn't finish his bedroom.
        Ralph
        : We're sorry about that, Mr. Douglas, but our country comes first.
        Oliver
        : Yes, you might as well do it to them for a while.

      • Oliver: (trying to get into the airplane factory Mr. Ziffle says I need a badge.
        Haney: Yes sir. What color would you like?
        Oliver: I dunno. What difference does it make?
        Haney: Well, the white one will give you entry to the cafeteria, the men's washroom and the employees' sundeck. The red one will give you access to the first three cow stalls in the main floor, but will not allow you use of the executive coffee pot. The yellow one---

      • Oliver: (surprised to Hank Kimball at the airplane factory) Don't tell me you work here!
        Hank: (holding a small box of dirt and bamboo chutes) Yes, I'm the plant manager. I manage these plants.

      • (The Ziffels announce they're leaving for Bleedswell)
        Oliver: What about your farm?
        Fred: Well, I can't hardly make a livin' at it. You see, there ain't nothin' for me to do between harvest time and Spring plantin' but set around and look at Doris...or TV. Now which you think's got the highest Nielsen?

      • (opening credits appear as Oliver and Lisa are in bed)
        Lisa: Oliver, Oliver! Wake up!
        Oliver: Huh? What?
        Lisa: Do you know anybody called Jay Sommers or Dick Chevrolet?
        Oliver: Who?
        Lisa: I was just dreaming that their names were over us.
