    • NOTES (1)

      • Hooterville resident Selma Plout is a member of Lisa's culture club. Selma is a recurring character on Petticoat Junction and was initially portrayed by Virginia Sale. (Elvia Allman assumed the role after the character's first few appearances on Petticoat.) Sale plays her here in the character's only Green Acres appearance. Selma Plout is not identified by name in this episode, only in the end credits.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Mr. Haney tries to sell Sir Geoffrey a Shep Fields baton set. Fields was a big band leader during the 1930s, performing as "Shep Fields and His Rippling Rhythm".
