Trivia: []

  • The piece "Morning Mood" by Edvard Grieg plays in the title card and throughout the episode.
  • As the camera pans around the campsite, you can spot a bra and boxer undergarments in a nearby tree.  
  • On his infomercial, Di Lung states that he came to the United States three weeks ago. This statement is rather odd, due to him appearing in the season 1 episode "Hothead" which was produced 3 years before this episode.  
  • A sign that reads "Dil Ave" can be seen in the Raccoons cave. 
  • When Muriel and the Raccoons are watching television, John Dilworth appears, with his head plastered on a dinosaurs body.  
    • Also, the Twin Towers can be shown in the movie that Muriel and the Raccoons were watching, as this episode aired about five months after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, but produced beforehand.
