      • This is the first of Bing Russell's 54 appearances on the series. In most of those he appeared as Deputy Clem Foster, but that wouldn't happen until the fourth season.

      • German episode title: "Häuptling Cochise und die Cartwrights", meaning "Chief Cochise And The Cartwrights".

      • Joe was originally slated to be the one who gets shot and Adam was to carry him to safety. There are two different stories as to why this was changed:
        1/ Pernell Roberts couldn't do this due to a bad back, so Roberts' stand-in, Betty Endicott, would do it instead. Roberts' was not pleased at the thought of this. Over lunch, Landon and Roberts determined that Joe could carry Adam instead.
        2/ NBC did not want its stars injured doing any stunts and Landon was the only approved "stuntman" on the cast.
        In any event, the script was re-written to have Adam as the shooting victim.
