Notes: This episode did not air in the original rotation of episodes in 1976 and was one of the first two episodes to be filmed.  In these two early entries, the Big Bologna was blue and everyone except Doomsday wore different clothes.  Because of this, there was concern that these two episodes would be confusing to viewers.  At some point they were turned into "flashback" episodes, with newer segments showing the guys reminiscing about their past case, saying, "Don’t you remember the good old days when the Big Bologna was blue?" which turns into a song.  Doomsday also makes the comment, "Boy, you guys sure dressed funny in those days."  In this way the "missing" episodes were able to finally air when the show returned in 1977.
