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.

Trivia: When Fred is about to be hanged by the furious crew, Barney arrives driving an ice cream van, the music of this car is the song of the Jetsons, another cartoon from the team Hanna & Barbera.


Question: On Fred's first day of his new promotion, he says "I'm only one man, Barney." To which Barney responds."Not from the back" and they both laugh. Could someone please explain this gag to me. I have tried for years to understand it, with no luck.

Chosen answer: He means Fred is fat. That from behind, he looks big enough to be two or more people.

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

[email protected]

New this week 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.
