      • As depicted in this episode, the Douglas family mutt Tramp, is scared witless by the cat that belongs to the Kaylor family. As pure coincidence would have it, Tramp is again scared by a cat in Episode # 179 from the fifth season. Chip mentions that the cat belongs to a neighbor named 'Mrs. Kaylor'! It is subtle references like this that are liberally sprinkled throughout the series, that give one an overall sense of some form of continuity in some of the recurring storylines.

      • Steve Douglases family Chevrolet station wagon has had its
        registration number plate changed from the first season's JTN-127 to JXN-222.

      • As Chevrolet was the show's major sponsor at this time, several permanent changes can still be found in release prints of the episodes. Some of these second season episodes have the familiar animated feet background throughout, whereas others, such as beginning with this episode, have the animated feet until just before the names of the guest stars are put up, then there is a filmed sequence showcasing at least six versions of Chevrolet cars driving on a highway under the credits. Look carefully and you will notice that they have a number plate citing 1962 to promote the company's (upcoming) latest automobile models of that era. Over the years when Viacom has prepared new prints of these old episodes for syndication markets all over the world, the Chevrolet sequences have been replaced with the usual background, but many such episodes still survive.

      • Bryant Park still hasn't been mentioned so far in the series, although as noted towards the end of the first season, at least Bryant High School does exist. Further evidence of this is corroborated by the timetable sheet that teenaged daughter Barbara Kaylor carries on top of her books when she initially tangles with Robbie at the lockers in the hallway of the school.

      • Actress Ann Marshall makes her first appearance on the show and will be seen sporadically as a character actress in small bit parts, often with only a couple of lines, for the next ten years of the show ending her tenure in the eleventh season.

      • In addition to being an actor, Norman Grabowski is also known as an award-winning custom car designer. Like celebrity custom designer George Barris, his hot rods and street rods are well known and respected in the industry and command top dollar prices.

      • Actor Joe Cranston (1915-1977) also had a recurring role as Anderson in the 2nd and 3rd seasons of "The Gale Storm Show" (1956-60), which also went under the title, "Oh, Susanna!"
