[show]Goof (errors in geography): The show was originally set in Milwaukee, famed for its brewing history. The title characters were bottlecappers in the fictional Schotz Brewery, so they are shown working along a brewery's bottling line during the opening titles. However, this sequence was obviously shot in an Anheuser-Busch facility, as the bottles shown streaming along the conveyor are the iconic 'teardrop' bottles used for Michelob beer in the 1970s. Anheuser-Busch, the St. Louis-based maker of Budweiser, never had a facility in Milwaukee.
