    • NOTES (6)

      • Conscious of the damage the alterations to the show's format did last season, this story is a (rather open) set-up to try and put things more back on the tracks (even the title is a clue to the intentions). It works to some extent, but still most of the fans felt that the series never recaptured the glory days of the 1st season.

      • Although credited as "Herself" in "Looney Tunes and Morkie Melodies", Amy Tenowich's character gets the name "Lola" in this episode.

      • Although not mentioned in Part 1 of this episode, Orkans ago backwards. While this conflicts with previous continuity, such as when Mork used his age machine to make himself older in "Old Fears", it would be an important set up for the introduction of Jonathan Winters as Mearth in Season 4.

      • At the start of this season, Conrad Janis returned to the cast as Mindy's father, Fred. Remo and Jean's restaurant changes it's name from "The New York Delicatessen" to "Da Vinci's Restaurant".

      • Gina, Remo and Nelson are generally dropped into the background more this season, appearing more semi-regularly.

      • Another version of the theme tune is used with this season, a slightly gentler version than the previous season's version (no doubt more aiming to return to the 1st season feel), and with a slightly more clownish feel to it.
