  • Season 1 Episode 1: Harry and the Hendersons

  • GOOF: The Henderson's station wagon is clearly already damaged in the close-up of it hitting Harry. The headlight cover is already open instead of coming open in the crash, and damage to the left front panel is grossly exaggerated and inconsistent with hitting Harry the way they did.

  • GOOF: The Hendersons take upon a wrong road when they have to go to the mountains. The road they took leads to North Seattle. They should have taken another 15 miles up the road.

  • TRIVIA: Bill Martin (IV), who co-wrote the screenplay for "Harry and the Hendersons," wrote songs for Harry Nilsson's "Harry" album and is pictured (wearing a bear suit) inside the album's cover. Martin says that the character "Harry" in the film is named after Harry Nilsson.

  • TRIVIA: According to cryptozoologist Loren Coleman, some characters in the film are based to varying degrees on actual figures in the search for Sasquatch. "Jacques LaFleur" (David Suchet) is a nod to the late Canadian Rene Dahinden, and "Dr. Wallace Wrightwood" (Don Ameche) combines some qualities of John Green, Peter Byrne and the late Dr. Grover Krantz.

  • TRIVIA: This was Vern Taylor's last film.
