Behind the scenes
- This is the second time an old jungle saying is mentioned in the Gold Key Phantom production. However, just like the first time, the phrase "old jungle saying" isn't used.
- The name of the featured tribe is given as the Wambasi, as opposed to Wambesi as in the original daily story.
- While it is the second Gold Key appearance of Colonel Weeks, this is the first one to mention his name.
