  • Trivia

    • The lamp next to Wilma's side, changes colour and height from previous episodes.

      You can see the line of Dino's neck were the animators are working.

      Before Betty asks Barney to get all the gear ready for the camping trip, she walk out of the door and it seems that she walks above the bottom of the plant pot just outside her home. It's only slight though.

    • The Rubbles have a pet turkey.

    • Fred works at Rockhead & Quarry.

    • How did Dino suddenly emerge from a snorkasaurus who talks like Phil Silvers, to a barking house pet?

  • Notes

    • This marks Dino's first official appearance in the series (despite him having appeared in the opening credits since the series' beginning!)

  • Allusions

    • The music at the picnic, is, of course, the "Colonel Bogey March" from The Bridge on the River Kwai.

    • Only in this episode Dino has a speaking voice and mannerisms reminiscent of Phil Silvers' Sergeant Bilko.
