"At the Races" was recorded on April 18, 1960, and originally aired on Nov. 18, 1960.
These are my comments and questions about the episode:
1. The 1960 theme song and opening credits are played.
2. This episode shows one of Fred's numerous bosses before the arrival of Mr. Slate.
3. There is a blooper in this episode. In the mugging scene, Fred's orange outfit temporarily loses its black spots!
4. The "Colonel" will reappear in a number of episodes, sometimes with a different story background, but always with a Texas accent. I have to wonder if it isn't the same guy all the time, continually trying to con the people of Bedrock into believe his stories.
