    • For the second episode in a row we say goodbye to a series regular. The great Will Wright passed away just a few months after this episode aired. The irascible character of Ben Weaver made one more appearance, however. In Season Four, Tol Avery plays him in The Shoplifters.

    Trivia (1)

    • Children of all ages might recognize Bert Miller's unique, high, raspy voice. Sterling Holloway, who played Bert in this episode, is most famous for being the voice of Disney's beloved Winnie the Pooh!
