Museum Patron: "Aah! The re-animated skeletons of zombified dinosaurs! My greatest fear!"

Fun Facts

  • Steve retrieves a Fossilization Ray from the Time-o-Pod, claiming it to be his latest invention. Since Beaver and Steve flee in a different time machine than the one they came in, the ray gun is actually stolen from someone in the future, just like so many of Steve's other "inventions".
  • On the wall of the museum are some stone face-like designs. From left to right they are: a cat; a monkey who is frowning; a fish facing stage right; a fish facing stage left; and Count Dracula.
  • Steve seems to have the ability to determine the function and details of other people's inventions by simply looking at them. Although he may not be as great an inventor as once thought, he is still clearly more intelligent than your average reptile.


  • The line "This is a highly disagreeable situation" originates from Comic 100.
  • The line "Aah! The re-animated skeletons of zombified dinosaurs! My greatest fear!" is a reference to the line "Aaah! A giant cockroach with a persecution complex... My greatest fear!" in Comic 59.
  • The Flux capacitor is a reference to a time machine component in the Back to the Future movies.
