    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (2)

      • The dog salon where Rob & Laura take Horrible is called the Puppy Palace. Yet, the aprons worn by the staff very plainly have "Poodle Palace" stitched on them.

      • When Rob is explaining his idea for a "Pygmalion" sketch, the characters refer to the dog star "Palley" alternately as a male and a female.

    • QUOTES (1)

      • Rexford Spaulding: Do you know what we call a cross between a Schnauzer and a poodle?
        Rob: No, what?
        Rocky Spaulding: (Rex's wife cuts in) A Shnoodle!
        (Both Rex and Rocky laugh riotously)
        Rexford Spaulding: I, myself am a FREEK!
        Rob: A W-w-what!?
        Rexford Spaulding: A FREEK, one half French, the other Greek......FREEK!

    • NOTES (1)

      • The Dick Van Dyke Show's reputation for clever wordplay is richly warranted and again in evidence in this episode. Note that the dog groomer is played by Billy De Wolf (the wolf being the closest ancestor to the domesticated canine) and his character is named...Rex. Those little hidden gems are a big part of the show's lasting power. It's just so much fun to watch an old episode and find a cleverly hidden play on words you hadn't noticed before.
