This is one of the few episodes where Brian and Stewie aren't featured prominently.
They're only seen at the start of the episode with Brian having two lines and Stewie w/ none in the aired version, however, Stewie does have a line in the DVD version of the episode.

It took a full year for Supervising Director, Dominic Bianchi & Animation Stunt Performer, Joe Vaux to create the fight sequence between Herbert & Franz.
