  • Mythology Gag: In the first shot of the Goofy dinosaurs, the original "Goofy holler" can be heard.

  • Set Right What Once Went Wrong: Mickey and Donald go back in time to bring Goofy back from prehistory, and then go to the minute before he entered the time machine to he won't finish his soda and have to go to the bathroom.
  • Stock Dinosaurs: Goofy-fied versions of Allosaurus, Brontosaurus, Triceratops, Stegosaurus, Spinosaurus, Tyrannosaurus rex and "Pterodactyl" appear in the episode.
