Full credits

The following credits try to match how they are displayed in the comic as much as possible:


  • This story reveals that Dick Dastardly is the twin brother of the Dread Baron.
  • The title is ironic, since it was not only "no Laff-a-Lympics today," but "no Laff-a-Lympics ever again." Inspite of this, Snagglepuss still says to "tune in" next time.
