  • Trivia

    • With the special bond Ann Margrock has with Pebbles throughout this episode,it's a wonder she was never seen at Pebbles and Bamm Bamm's wedding.

    • The scene before the credits doesn't appear in the episode itself. This situation happens periodically throughout the next two years.

    • There is a blooper at the end. At the start of that scene, there are a lot of people sitting on the couch, but at the end there are only Wilma, Betty and Pebbles. Where did everyone go?

  • Quotes

    • (A dentist, using a cement truck, has just gave a dental filling to the dinosaur, Lulubell)
      Dentist: Hmm. That's a pretty nice-looking filling, if I do say so myself. And now, my signature. (puts his hand print on the filling)
      Fred: Where does he think he is, Granite's Chinese?

    • Fred: Wilma, your baby's crying!
      Wilma: Oh, it's my baby now. Why is it it's your baby when she's quiet and my baby when she cries?

    • Ann Margrock: You have just one child, Mrs. Flintstone?
      Wilma: Sometimes I wonder.

  • Notes

    • Bea Benaderet receives no screen credit for her voice of Betty Rubble throughout this whole season. The only stars noted during the closing credits are Alan Reed, Mel Blanc, and Jean Vander-Pyl.

    • Some additions were added to the regular opening and closing credit scenes. Added to the opening scene, when Fred arrives home from work, he runs into the house and picks up Pebbles, who was playing with her toys (replacing the scene where Fred beeps his car horn and Wilma, Dino, and the cat come running out of the house). The one other addition is when they arrive at the drive-in, and Dino pokes his head through the car roof, Pebbles is placed on Dino's head. In the closing scene, when the family arrives home and walks into the house one by one, we have a brief close-up of Wilma happily carrying Pebbles in her arms.
