  • Trivia

    • Domesticated Samoyed dogs were used in this episode to represent Huskies. The real Huskies who appeared in this episode were cut into the story on film clips. Also, some of the Samoyed dogs suffered quite badly under the heat of the studio lights, with several of them collapsing under the conditions. Fortunately there were no canine fatalities.

    • For sharp-eyed viewers, note the sleigh-dog answering a 'call of nature' in the scene where Craig and Richard are being dragged off, supposedly dead, on sledges. This one definitely got past the editors who goofed big-time.
