    Notes (3)

    • This episode marks the only time in the show's history that Carol Cleveland is seen topless. Though other actresses appeared in various states of undress during the show's run, this was Cleveland's sole instance of dropping trou.

    • 17 and half minutes into the show the opening credits play.

    • The "Fish Licence" sketch was supposed to end with John Cleese singing his own composition Eric The Half A Bee. The number was cut from the TV shows not once but twice. When John sang the song during the Pythons' stage tour of Britain in 1973, the others made him drop the song. It appears with "Fish Licence" in Monty Python's Previous Record.
