Neither David Newell (Mr. McFeely) nor Robert Trow are listed in the show's credits.
During Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin reads in her message that she must bring the fruit salad to the castle for the picnic "day after tomorrow." This would've been read in the previous episode since the picnic was to take place in the next one.
The photo of Robert Trow seen in the friends display, goes back a few years. By this time, Trow grew a mustache, if only for a time.
This is the first time Ana Platypus's bedroom is shown in The Neighborhood of Make-Believe.
Goof: The trolley has a flashlight affixed to its top because it is after dark in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe. However, when the trolley first enters the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, the flashlight is affixed close to the front of the top of it. Minutes later, as it's about to leave the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, the flashlight has been moved way to the back of the top of the trolley.
This is a rare instance in which the Neighborhood of Make-Believe is seen at night. The other occurrences were in Episode 1519 from the "Day Care & Night Care" series, and Episode 1755 from the "Curiosity" series.
The lullaby that Ana sings is "All the Pretty Little Horses."
In viewing his cut-out of a fish from the wrong side, Mister Rogers taped the fish upside-down to a stick (one can tell from the eye).
Rogers says that in the next program, he would take viewers to see the place where he would swim daily. Actually, the upcoming swimming pool sequence was shot entirely on film.
No employee of Gabriel Industries (the doll-making factory) was listed in the credits.
This would be the last time we see Mr. Rogers walking along the neighborhood at the beginning an end of the program.
Goof: Watching closely, one can see Mister Rogers beckoning to someone off camera and mouthing the words "come on" in the opening scene.
The museum Mister Rogers visits is the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh.
Mister Rogers' song, "The Truth Will Make You Free" takes its theme from Jesus' words in John 8:32 - "You will know the truth and the truth will make you free."
Queen Sara calls the clown deliveryman "Mr. Aber Clown" even though they have never met before and Aber doesn't say his real name. But we would see a lot more of him in future episodes.
Fred Rogers alludes to his colorblindness in this episode, when he quietly comments to Mr. McFeely, "I don't see colors very well" as McFeely is showing him the same shirt in different colors.
Goof: Before Rogers leaves the television house, he removes his sneakers but never puts on his dress shoes!
The model of Universal Studios has a large sign reading "GATE B." In reality, the gate sign reads "Universal Studios NORTH GATE."
Francois Clemmons writes a song for the children that he says has their names in it, but he brings up a sign with the lyrics written on it and it says "Anna, Prince and Daniel." Prince is the young man's title; his name is Tuesday. The lyrics in the song (and the subsequent name plaque he is given) should have said Tuesday, not Prince. If they had done that, then they could have juggled the children's names around in the song (like Anna, Tuesday, Daniel, or Daniel, Anna, Tuesday, or Tuesday, Daniel, Anna) since each name had two syllables, instead of telling the boy that since Prince only had one syllable, it had to be in the middle. In fact, he should have spoken up and said, "But my name is Tuesday!"
Ana Platypus's name is printed "Anna" in this episode.
