Behind the scenes

  • Inside cover for the story "Jungle Love" was inspired by movie poster for Casablanca. Names in list of roles on the poster were most likely referenced to real life actor and actress:
  • And as special guest appearances:
  • Movie title "Our Man in Nepal" from the poster shown on wall were most likely referenced to real movie title Our Man in Havana.
  • The name "Ookabolapongas" (instead the usual Ookabolakongas) in the title "In the Land of Ookabolapongas" was taken from the comic strip "Melvin of the Apes".
  • The movie "Jungle Love" was produced by Bengafilms Pty. Ltd. in association with Pidde Andersson and Frew Australia.
  • Name of the restaurant "Knife & Falk Dinner" is hommage to Lee Falk.
  • Even though that story probably placed to early 1950s, in Biff Blunt's house are shown more modern fridge and cooker.
  • Streets in Morristown are named "Wilson Av.", "McCoy St.", and "No Frew Rd.", after Wilson McCoy and Frew.
  • An actress (the most likely to be Katherine Heartburn) is drawn to look like a Audrey Hepburn.
