The idea of the Green Goose's name may have come Hanna-Barbera's unrealized plans of producing a series of live-action films called The Green Goose in 1962.[1][2]

Crew credits

Release

Dates are in order of release:

  • United States: August 3, 1966

Behind the scenes

  • The poster is a parody of the film Our Man Flint, itself a James Bond parody, which was released at the beginning of 1966.
  • The poster uses R.S. Allen's name, but the film itself says, Ray Allen.
  • The film opens up with Wilma in place of the torch lady in Columbia Pictures' logo, which is cut from Warner Bros.' DVD print.
  • Don Messick doesn't provide the speaking voice of Bamm-Bamm, who's only time talking is actually singing when he's put to bed by an unknown performer.
  • Fred and Wilma say Eurock, instead of Europe.

Errors

  • Wilma's dress is purple instead of white.
  • While the vet referred to Hoppy's species as being a Hopparoo, he just referred to Dino as a common dinosaur, when his species is a Snorkasaurus.
  • Fred had his hair sliced off by Bobo in one scene, but in the next, it's grown back to its full length.
  • Chief Boulder and Betty say "Papa Piccolo's Pizza Palace," but the building says, "Papa Piccolo Pizza Palace."
