    • This episode is based on a segment from the 1985 Showtime Special "Concert For the North Americas," specifically a sketch called the Full Moon Sketch. In this sketch Ed Grimley's cousin Mr Talbot behaves strangely on the full moon, and may or may not be a werewolf.

    Trivia (3)

    • Martin Short plays himself in this episode, appearing on TV to rally hope for the supposedly dying Ed Grimley. Here Short portrays himself as a self-absorbed spoiled actor.
