Main Characters in this Episode
- Goof (miscellaneous): About 22 minutes in, just as the Minnow is falling apart, a Styrofoam coffee cup can be seen sitting in the ships hull.
- Goof (continuity error): In every shot showing the boat, it simply reads "Minnow" on the side. However, in the show intro, it reads "S.S. Minnow".
- Asked to make rope out of vine, Mr.Howell (Jim Backus) calls himself, "Little old vine maker me." This was a reference to the '60s TV ad campaign for Italian Swiss Colony wine. Ludwig Stössel played the wine maker, but Backus dubbed his popular catch phrase, "That little old wine maker, me!"
- The final fate of the S.S. Minnow is revealed.
