Trivia: Mel Blanc did the voice of Dino. This is only significant if you consider the fact that this film was made in 1994 but Blanc died five years previously in 1989. The film-makers used tapes of his original sounds from the 1960s TV show.

Question: How come Fred can't accept the briefcase from Barney and Betty at his promotion party?

Answer: When Fred received said promotion, the first order of business Vandercave gave him was to fire Barney. Since Barney would thus have no source of income, the order comes into conflict with his loyalty to his friend; his guilt makes him feel that the gift is something Barney can't afford and which he, Fred, doesn't deserve.
