    • Uncle Fester: I asked Lurch to bring my bed of nails up so I could get some relaxation, and he completely ignored me! Gomez: We'll see about that. (rings for Lurch) Lurch: You rang? Gomez: Lurch, I'm afraid you'll have to apologize to Uncle Fester. Lurch: Uuuugghh...

    Notes (3)

    • This was one of the final episodes to feature the stuffed brown bear in the living room. In the next episode, the bear has been replaced with a totem pole. In the final episode of this season, "The Winning of Morticia Addams", the brown bear is back, just for that episode. In the final season, the totem pole is replaced with a stuffed polar bear.

    • Blossom Rock does not appear in this episode.

    • The camera pans back from a close-up of Thing's box on top of Lurch's harpsichord; without cutting, the shot widens and you can hear a dolly roll out from under the harpsichord to remove assistant director Jack Voglin from underneath it. He was providing his hand for Thing because Ted Cassidy was playing the harpsichord.

    Trivia (1)

    • Uncle Fester: "Morticia! You know I don't drink!" Apparently not, in "My Son the Chimp," Morticia accuses Fester of being drunk!
