    • Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz threw a luau party on the island set after the episode was filmed.

    • During the opening credits, there is an announcer, who says "'I Love Lucy' starring Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz". One of few, if any other, episodes in syndication to feature an announcer during the opening.

    • This episode was filmed without a live audience.
