Trivia: A (corrected) entry states that a USAAF B-17 'Flying Fortress' bomber is visible in the film. In fact in some prints produced for release in the US irrelevant stock footage of a B17 was randomly cut into the film to make it more acceptable to American audiences. This was a deliberate alteration of the film done very much against the wishes of the producer and director, and it explains the 'error' - the contributor has seen one of the non-canon US prints.
Trivia: At the very end of the film the camera is zooming out with the observatory in the middle of the screen. Right before the credits begin, a man in a brown suit carrying a briefcase walks up to the observatory. This man is Nicholas Ray, the director of Rebel Without A Cause.
Trivia: The mine that the Coyote comes out on his rocket has a sign outside saying "Selzer Mining Co" - a reference to the Warner Brothers producer Eddie Selzer.
Trivia: When we see the start of the newsflash at the theatre, the opening title has "Selzer" as the cameraman and the narrator is "Moray." "Selzer" is a reference to the Warner Brothers producer Eddie Selzer, whereas "Moray" is a reference to Norman Moray, the key executive with the Vitaphone Corporation, Warner Brothers' short subject division.
Trivia: The book that Bugs is reading at the start of the cartoon is authored by "Burton" - a reference the Warner Brothers production manager, John Burton.
Trivia: In the shot where scientist Cal Meacham is pulling the power plug from the Interocitor, the post supporting the triangular viewscreen is suddenly taller than in it is in any other scene. It appears to have been lengthened deliberately for this shot in order to raise the viewscreen above the top of the film frame. (00:20:40)orzel-w
Trivia: When the man is released from the Psychopathic Hospital, he spots the construction site when he originally found the frog. The man then hides the box in the cornerstone of the future "Tregoweth Brown Building" - a reference to the Warner Brothers sound editor Treg Brown.
