    • Swedish musician Owe Thörnqvist guest vocaled in the episode and sang his song "Wilma" in the episode. This whole episode was based from the song. The lawyers of Hannah Barbera Hollywood contacted Owe believing there using some of the properties of the show without there permission. Owe helped fix the mistake by clarifying that the chorus line "jabadabadooo", which sounds like Fred's catchphrase , Yabba Dabba Doo, was an old viking sound when you find a woman and Wilma is a common name in Sweden; making all point factors coincidental. Bill and Joe adored his kindness and funny attitute of Owe so much that they resolved the issue by having him come to the USA in the HB studio and record an English version of his song to be used for the show, although they decide to use the Swedish version instead for the episode.
