Only time RR accused of not being heroes but rather crooks (comp. crabs of "Shell Shocked" who are at best bemused and complain re RR's lack of efficiency).  Ironically, a bunch of animals suspect them.

"Animal society" of a different kind than the "subculture" explored in other eps: these animals don't act and dress like mini-humans but are "normal" animals in a zoo who just happen to be able to talk.

Captain Colonel and Elliott || Colonel Hathi and son of The Jungle Book.  Capt. Colonel the same sort of imperious British-Raj type elephant.

Clever twist on the cliche of Chinese pandas coming to American zoos as a goodwill gesture.  These pandas are mechanical geniuses (ref. to Far Eastern economic prowess) and would like to go home!
