Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (4)

    • The Boo Birds, scanning a calendar: "Febru-worry, Septem-boo, Octo-boo, Decem-boo...Shun-day, Mourn-day, Toombsday, Wham-day, Terrors-day, Fright-Day!" (The other day of the week on the calendar was "Shatter-Day.")

    • Cape Banana-peel correspondent: "!"

      Cecil: "That's putting on the old squeeze play!" (after rocket fusilage explodes) "Golly...the banana split!"

    • Cecil (after getting mauled by the cat): "I tawt I taw a putty tat!"

    • Cecil: (signing the guest book) "How do you spell 'X'?"

  • NOTES (5)

    • As the Boo Birds turn Cecil's head into a football, the fight song from the Georgia Institute of Technology ("Ramblin' Wreck From Georgia Tech") is played.

    • The opening scene for "Beany and the Boo Birds" uses music from the Leave it to Beaver episode "The Cookie Fund" (when Beaver and Larry put away the cookies the second time.)

    • Little Ace's launch takes place at Cape Banana-peel (a play on what then was Cape Canaveral). A mechanical hand is trucked out to squeeze the spaceship up like a banana coming out of its peel.

    • While searching for Little Ace's mother, Cecil puts a Mickey Mouse doll on his head. It--and Cecil's face--get subsequently mauled by a cat on the other side of a mousehole.

    • A sign in a belfry full of beatnik bats reads "A Mad Pad, Dad." This sign was previously seen in "The Wildman Of Wildsville."


    • The Boo Birds: "Mystery guest--sign in please!"
      When Cecil enters the haunted hotel Fountain-boo, the Boo Birds have some fun with him, treating him as a guest. The line delivered is a tag line from the game show "What's My Line?"
