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?
(Fred is getting a ticket)
Police Officer: "Faulty trailer hitch. Obstructing traffic. Creating a hazard." What's your name?
Police Officer: How do you spell it?
This marks Dino's first official appearance in the series (despite him having appeared in the opening credits since the series' beginning!)
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.
