    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Towards the end of "Clock-A-Doodle-Doo!," Stanley is talking with Dennis and still fully dressed in his pajamas. The angle cuts away briefly (no more than fifteen to twenty seconds) and when it cuts back, Stanley is almost fully dressed and has his bag laying beside him.

      • In "Bloodhound Blues," Harry gets upset with Stanley and leaves the backyard, apparently for Stanley's room. Stanley decides to go talk to him and exits the backyard, leaving Dennis there along with his friends. Yet, when Stanley is next shown, talking to Harry in his room, Dennis is there, even though it appeared that Stanley headed for his room directly.

    • QUOTES (3)

      • Rooster: Cock-a-doodle-doo!
        Stanley: Cock-a-doodle-don't! You're going to get us in trouble. I thought roosters only cock-a-doodled when the sun came up.

      • Dennis: The best part about looking up roosters here is that we won't have to hear the song.
        Elsie: Don't count your chickens before they hatch, Dennis.
        Dennis: But how?
        Harry and Elsie: (singing) Now we're going online to find out everything / We'll surf the Internet / For the answers it can bring!
        Dennis: Shh! We're in the library! Oops.
        Harry and Elsie: Shh. (singing quietly) Stanley needs to get awake/ A rooster's what he's going to take.
        Dennis: Where are you going now?
        Harry: Biology class. See you, dude.
        Dennis: He can't be serious. Can he?

      • Dennis: Maybe we should learn a bit more about roosters before getting one for the house.

    • NOTES (2)

      • Robert David and Jeff Buckland are the writer and director respectively for both stories. Additionally, both stories have the storyboard artwork credited to a company, Barking Bullfrog, rather than a person.

      • When Stanley worries about missing the bus, note that the effect of having dot eyes comes in. Parenthasies appear briefly around them, as seen frequently seen in the "Peanuts" comics (which also has dot-eyed characters).

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Lionel: Here it is. Romeo and His Guitar by Bill Spearshake.
        Rooster: Cock-a-doodle-doo!
        aLionel: What the? Who? Stanley. Gotta be.
