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.
- 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."
