      • In the pantheon of television history, Jewish writer Peggy Phillips' most famous work as a professional writer gives her the distinction of having been Head Writer on the inaugural 1965-66 season of the daytime soap opera "Days Of Our Lives", where she also co-wrote the very first televised episode.

      • Cynthia Pepper makes her debut as Mike's next door neighbor girlfriend Jean Pearson in this episode and will play the role seven more times during the season.


      • Bill Frawley was known to be a gentleman around the opposite sex, but in the company of men, X-rated language ensued. This was during the time when even the word 'darn' was actually considered too harsh a word to be spoken in front of a minor. His juvenile co-stars found him to be very funny. In this Thanksgiving episode, Frawley is supposed to be in the backyard cutting a turkey. [It should be pointed out that in the finished episode, it is Steve who is actually seen cutting up the turkey]. Stanley Livingston remembers, "He couldn't get this line he had to say out, and all of a sudden he started stabbing the turkey and yelling 'Goddamn fuck! Who wrote this shit?' ". Director Gene Reynolds who helmed the third and fourth seasons of the show recalls that Frawley would utter the same line, or a variation thereof whenever he couldn't remember his lines. Reynolds remembers him taking his script and throwing it against the wall as he uttered the rhetorical question that was his usual line, "Who wrote this shit?". The boys thought this was hysterical, but Director Reynolds notes that profanity like that was shocking, thrilling and amusing to a junior all at the same time. If anything it endeared him more to his juvenile co-stars.
