Near the conclusion of the movie, just before Jimmy captures Charlie the duck, there is a Volkswagen Beetle with the license plate OFP 857. The tag was the very same as Herbie's in The Love Bug (1968), another Disney movie starring Dean Jones that was the first in a series of "Love Bug" films.

When the truck brakes and Albert, in the cherry picker, hits the bridge, the shot changes from a mid shot of Albert to a close-up. However, the background remains the same in both shots, revealing that he was filmed in front of a chroma key background.
