- In Nigel Planter and the Chamber Pot of Secrets can see Fred like cavemen.
- In Flintstones series, Fred could speak perfectly normal, whereas in Modern Primitives just seems to say "Yabba Dabba-'. This makes understanding the caveman language different from the current language. Of course, this isn't canon to the actual show.

- Fred has over 2,399,000 of age, being that figure the time that has been frozen. This makes it the oldest living human in the series.
- His name is the only word that Fred pronounced in current language throughout the episode.
- Billy decides to change his name because he can not speak American English.
