    • TRIVIA (1)

      • This is a rare episode where the Time Tunnel pulls Tony and Doug out while they're still in their period clothing. There's no edit where they switch to their regular clothes, but of course, they use the stock footage of the opening time travel sequence, and sure enough they're back in their regular clothes for the next episode. At this point in the series, these clothes should have significant wear and tear with all the scuffles the guys have been in. Add the fact they should have a good amount of grime and major body odor. After all, at no time in the series had we seen Doug and Tony bathe and groom themselves. How is it that they begin every adventure immaculate and clean-shaven? No matter how long they've been stranded in one particular period of time, not even their facial hair grows! (editor's note: while this is somewhat of a recurring issue, it's not really a nit since the show itself is consistent on this - perhaps the two revert mentally and physically back to how they were when they first left - they certainly don't seem to reference anything that happened to them in previous episodes.)
