Fun Facts
  • Title Reference: While the title is simply giving a descriptive name to the character of Simon Quegg, there really is a legend of a man who never reaches home. Peter Rugg, a New England literary character who figures in several American short stories and poems, rides out into a thunderstorm in the year of the Boston Massacre (1770), and is cursed to drive his carriage till the end of time. Travelers claim to have sighted him along one road or another, driving a carriage with a child at his side, and declaring that he will reach Boston by nightfall. Rugg is often assumed to be a folk character out of New England legends. Actually he was simply made up in 1824 by attorney and writer William Austin who, under the pseudonym Jonathan Dunwell, wrote the tale, "Peter Rugg: The Missing Man," in an epistolary style that suggested reportage.
  • The voice actors were recorded on December 19, 1986.
