  • Notes

    • Simon MacCorkindale would later go on to star in Glen Larson's Manimal series on NBC, which only lasted 8 episodes, as Professor Jonathan Chase. He reprised the role later on in an episode of the 90's Glen Larson series NightMan (the episode was titled Manimal).

    • As far as Daisy having a crush on Gaylord:

      When Gaylord is first introduced, Daisy mentions that he's their cousin through an aunt's marriage, which means they aren't blood cousins. Non-related cousins getting married is not uncommon. Franklin D. Roosevelt married his fifth-cousin.

    • When the boys are painting the roadsigns for Rosco, Gaylord's says "God Save the Queen", Bo's says "Speed Limit 155 mph" and Luke's says "Speed Trap 1 mile Ahead".

    • Cooter's cousin, L.B., who appears instead of Cooter in this episode, is listed in the end credits as Longstreet B. Davenport.

    • This was the first episode produced after Ben Jones left the show over a dispute with the producers. They wanted him to have an unshaven look, but Jones had grown a beard, which they ordered him to get rid of.

    • Ernie W. Brown (who guest starred in the pilot) appears as Cooter's cousin Longstreet B. (L. B.) Davenport, the second replacement of Ben Jones' boycott.
