      • On the Sunday night after this episode aired, William Frawley was the featured guest on the January 8, 1961 telecast of the Ralph Edwards-hosted "This Is Your Life". Fred MacMurray was one of the guest stars brought in to offer anecdotes on the life of Frawley. Their friendship goes way back to 1935 when they co-starred together in the film "Car 99" at Paramount Pictures.

      • Close video scrutiny of the Douglas telephone book reveals that it is a Los Angeles edition. One of the streets in the listings is W.Washington Boulevard, a famous location in that city. This is only a guess on my part as I also discovered that there is a W. Washington Boulevard in Chicago! As the series filmed in Hollywood (itself a suburb of greater Los Angeles) it is more than probable that the book is actually for L.A. Perhaps almost fifty years after the fact we shouldn't be so discerning!

      • Steve tells the aid interviewer that his occupation is as a missile engineer.

      • Ironically (some might even say with more than a touch of misogyny), the bulk of the program's first five Black and White years did not focus on the stereotypical male ineptitude for all household chores, but instead continually reinforced the notion that males were, in fact, domestically far superior to the "hysterical" female Guest Stars.


      • Although primarily then known as a character actress of the stage, Dorothy Konrad (1912-2003) also appears in the fourth episode of the "Mister Ed" series ('Kiddy Park'), that aired the same month as this show. However, this episode marked her professional television debut. She is even given the credit "Introducing Dorothy Konrad".
