    • A very bizarre scene has the Mcdonald's characters (popular in the late 70s) running around the link set with the YCDTOTV cast.

    • Marc Baillon is introduced in this episode as the token "frog" (French Canadian).

    • Music inserts in this program include Billy Joel (Say Goodbye To Hollywood), Donna Summer (The Last Dance), and Andy Gibb.

    • Like the rest of season 1, this episode was a one hour variety show that aired live.

    Allusions (1)

    • Cindy: Frogs aren't human.

      Marc: Any more this and we will separate!
      Late in the 1970s, Quebec was divided over the prospect of separating into an independent country. Canada and Pierre Trudeau, returned to the Prime Ministership, watched nervously as it came to a vote in 1980. By a narrow margin, Quebec voted not to secede.
