    • The opening credits are changed to have the billing start with "Elizabeth Montgomery in Bewitched", which continues for the rest of the series. David White is also now listed in the opening credits after Agnes Moorehead.

    • Deacon Jones, who plays the palace guard in this episode, played for several years for the Los Angeles Rams football team. In fact, he is often credited for coining the term "quarterback sack". He is now enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

    • Originally, William Asher and Elizabeth Montgomery were going to end the show after season five, not only because of Dick York's leaving, but because they were both getting tired of doing the show. However, ABC offered them more money and an increased ownership in the show and so Bewitched went on.

    • Dick Sargent debuts as Darrin in this episode, filmed on April 18, 1969 during Elizabeth Montgomery's seventh month of pregnancy.
