  • NOTES (1)

    • John Byner, who portrayed the prospector, is a comic impressionist who became famous in the 1960's. He was credited as a special guest star, and his character was described by Al and the radio announcer in the second part of the episode as a man "who looks like John Byner."


    • The episode title is an allusion to the 1960's television series, Route 66, and the song, (Get Your Kicks on) Route 66, first recorded by Nat King Cole as the King Cole Trio in 1946.
