  • Trivia

    • Here's an interesting story about this episode.

      I was in 7th grade in a short time before this episode
      aired and saw my fellow art-class student and friend
      Lance Deverich/Racana attempting to make a pot on
      the potter's wheel in Roger Twedt's Art Class at
      Palm Valley in Palm Springs, CA.

      Lance had a crazy Einstein hair-cut and was generally
      unkempt with kooky habits. We were best friends during
      our time at P.V. So I framed the shot of him, director-style
      left/thumb right/forefinger and reversed, etc. and thought,
      this would be a good film for our film class.

      Later, we did this as "The Potter's Problem" which won
      the California Art Educator's Award and at which one
      of Lucy's writers saw the episode, turned it into this
      episode and made it more famous. Others on the team at Palm Valley: Roger Twedt (art director,
      and Lucy's teacher in the episode of Here's Lucy, my art teacher,
      now deceased, along with his beloved wife and my 4th grade
      teacher Grace Twedt), Mike Stern (a friend), and Craig Siva
      (another friend.)

      Anyway, you know the rest now.

      P.S. I made a couple of pots in my life but always found it
      difficult. Now the most I do is watch them make pots at
      the Laguna Beach Sawdust Art Festival yearly.

      On another note, The Terminator series and some other
      James Cameron movies were produced by another Palm
      Valley graduate Gale Anne Hurd who was in a couple of
      classes ahead of me.
