- When Bud is outside of Dino's Lodge, he pulls out a comb and combs his hair. This is a reference to the television series "77 Sunset Strip" (1958). In that show, Edd Byrnes played Kookie, a valet at Dino's Lodge who was constantly combing his hair.
- There are many props and posters from Eegah (1962) which also starred Arch Hall Jr., and was released earlier in the year.
