* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: There's no way this game could be mistaken for any era other than TheSeventies.


In a blatant appeal to {{Fanservice}}, the table is festooned with [[WorldOfBuxom large-busted women]] all over its backglass and playfield art. Unbeknownst to Bally management, artist Dave Christensen [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar also included several risque bits in the backglass]], including a guy [[FlippingTheBird flipping off the viewer]] and [[AllWomenAreLustful a woman enthusiastically grabbing the groin of a man behind her]]. Bally responded by adding small mirrored stars over the objectionable parts, though they didn't completely obscure the art.
