CB's plot was modified. Originally, the nephews urge DD to cheat by using an emergency kit. The kit contains a fishline that the nephews can use to guide DD like a kite. The fishline gets tangled in a whirling merry-go-round, making DD so confused that he missed the finish. This was replaced by a scene of angry eagles borrowed from WDC 209-02.
Dialogue modified by Geoffrey Blum.
