    • The Monkeemobile makes her debut appearance in this episode with The Monkees' guitar logo as door decals.

    • The late Godfrey Cambridge cameos as the parking lot attendant. (Cambridge appeared with Monkee guest actor Severn Darden in the 1967 Paramount picture The President's Analyst.)

    • When Michael (El Nesmito) wonders whether they should carry a club card or some badges, Micky (El Dolenzio) sneers, "Badges?! We don't need no steenking badges!," taking a cue from the character Gold Hat, which was portrayed by Mexican character actor Alfonso Bedoya in The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (Warner Bros., 1948).

    • Although the climactic showdown between El Diablo and Micky was to take place at the center of town at high noon, the church bell peals only 11 times!

    • "It's A Nice Place To Visit..." was originally the ninth episode produced for The Monkees' second season, but was chosen by NBC to open it.

    Trivia (4)

    • In reference to Michael Nemsith suggesting to do the second verse over again, I think he was making reference to the chorus.

    • Continuity goof: in the dinner scene where they are celebrating, at the first toast, Micky, Michael and Peter throw the "booze" out behind them. But at the second toast, without refilling their cups, they smash the cups together, and liquid comes out!

    • Blooper #1: When the band perform "What Am I Doing Hangin' ‘Round?" at the cafe, note that The Monkees are sporting their late-67 hairstyles, but when the come off the stage they're sporting their mid-67 hairstyles. This is of course because the performance of "What Am I Doing Hangin' ‘Round?" was recorded after the episode had been filmed.

    • Blooper(?) #2: Michael Nesmith says they could always sing the second verse again, but the song has three verses, not two, and each are part of the same story, so it wouldn't make sense to sing the second verse again!
