      • When the show started, critics were concerned that MacMurray's lengthy career as a dramatic film actor who sometimes played villains would stand in the way of achieving success on a sitcom. Gail Ingram Clement viewed that as a challenge and set out to prove the critics wrong. "My mother had a way of writing lines for him that no one else could," her son Hal said. "She knew him and his speech rhythms so well that she would write them down on paper and they wouldn't appear funny. But when Fred MacMurray said them, they were funny. The show's producers loved that because she was doing what no one else could." She also was called upon to edit and rework scripts by Don Grady, an actor who played one of the sons on the show and wanted to become a writer. Hal Clement said he remembers visiting the "My Three Sons" set one day when Grady thanked her for all her help.

      • This would be the last teleplay contribution by Gail Ingram Clement who had written 19 episodes of the series thus far, with 9 as a co-writer.


      • The original CBS storylines sheet for this episode notes that Budd Grossman was the Producer of this episode. This information of course is incorrect. The third through twelfth Seasons are Produced solely by Edmund Hartmann. It's even more startling to note that actress Kathleen Crowley (who does appear in Episode #149) is listed as having played the role of Nancy in this episode when in fact Mary La Roche won the part. Perhaps Crowley had been signed and then for some unforseen reason she was replaced at the last minute. How she even got to be listed on the official synopsis for this episode remains a mystery.

      • Don Grady as Robbie and the Greefs perform the song "A Good Man To Have Around the House" to which he wrote the words and music for. And once again, actor Gil Rogers is uncredited as the blond guitarist in Robbie's combo.(The song is also featured in Episode # 228).
