  • Notes

    • This episdoe has a lot of similarities to an episode of Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C., Dynamite Diner, that would air six years later. Similarities include: crooks running a restaurant; the restaurant is a front to break into the neighboring bank; they go legitimate after some kind souls help out their struggling new business become a success.
