- Cindy Bear does not appear in this episode.
- This is the first episode to have a parent of one of the Rottens (not including Mr. and Mrs. Creepley who are in the Laff-a-Lympics themselves) appear as a spectator; this time being Mrs. Mumbly.
- Alan Reed, the original voice of Fred Flintstone, only managed to record lines for this episode before passing away. All of his further guest spots were done by Reed's successor, Henry Corden.
- This was not the final time Reed was heard as Fred, though, as there was the short film, Energy: A National Issue, aired two months later in November.
Animation mistakes and/or technical glitches

Inconsistencies/continuity errors and/or goofs/oddities
- Huckleberry Hound appears in the Yogis crowd just after performing in the skiing contest.
