    • Someone else posted that the show might've lost reference to its title with the departure of Don Grady after this airing. Well, we still have three Douglas children (the Livingston brothers and Dawn Lyn)-- granted one was female. But what I realized is that with the beginning of season 12, the title is still very much in-tact. What changes is that the central character is technically no longer Steve Douglas, but his daughter-in-law. She is the one with three sons! This is a significant shift in the program.

    • This episode also marked the end of the Directing tenure of Fred De Cordova. After being at the helm for 108 classic half hour episodes, Freddie left the show in 1971 to take on the Producer's role on an established night-time variety talk show that would become an institution, "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson". (Showbiz veteran De Cordova died on Sept.15, 2001 at age 90.)

    • As noted elsewhere in this guide, Guest star Mike Minor was the son of Executive Producer Don Fedderson. Born Michael Fedderson he is perhaps best known as pilot Steve Elliott on "Petticoat Junction" (1963-70) and this is his eighth and final appearance on his father's program.

    • In syndication, it is strange to watch this episode in knowing the family has moved to San Francisco and in the beginning episode of Season 12, Katie and the triplets are relocated back to Los Angeles to live (without Robbie) and back at the Douglas home. However, months separated the two episodes on their original network runs.


    • The final segment of the eleventh season was probably intended as a pilot for a spin-off series that never sold.
      This episode is notable as Don Grady's final performance as Robbie Douglas. After 356 episodes and eleven years playing the same character, Grady has recently stated that he wished to concentrate on his music career so he left the show. [According to Grady, it took him almost ten years from when he left the show before he was taken seriously as a composer.] This sent the producers into a quandry. How would the show fare without him? The following season it is explained that (in the storyline) Robbie is sent to Peru to help as a structural engineer on a bridge being built. The series was winding down, and if anything should have had a name transplant... it was now about a much larger family with emphasis on all members.
