Trivia

The giants are usually given alien-sounding names in the series. This week, they were creative about it. The giant Talf Ekorb's name is "Flat Broke" spelled backward, and his wife's name is "Also Broke" in reverse (both referring to their financial situation.) Their son's name "Dal" is simply "lad" spelled backward.
