      • Speaking of Spencer Tracy, a sub plot in this episode has Ernie complaining to Uncle Charley that he has to write a book report on the classic novel, "Captains Courageous" which as Charley rightly points out was made into a film (produced in 1936 at MGM) that co-stars Tracy and a young Freddie Bartholomew.

      • Steve makes an off hand reference to his oldest son when Robbie seeks permission to live on campus and Steve says,
        "But we've just finished fixing up Mike's room for you".

      • Hank Jones makes his seventh and final guest appearance on the series. He continued acting in Disney films and made other TV appearances and even commercials, until he retired from acting in the early 1980s to devote more time to his real passion: tracing family histories. Hank has been a professional genealogist since 1965 and has had several books published. He continues to lecture all over the United States and Canada. Hank emailed me with some of his recollections for which I will be forever grateful. He said that "It was hard to get to know William Demarest in the few episodes I appeared on. I think he was somewhat hard of hearing. He was kind of grouchy too, but still nice. I remember talking to him about his friend Spencer Tracy. I used to see Mr. Tracy at MGM, when I was working there on an Elvis Presley picture, riding his old bicycle around the MGM lot".

      • Tim Rooney, the son of the legendary Mickey Rooney, appears as Robbie's room-mate. Born in 1947, Tim suffered from paralysis for two years as a direct consequence of contracting polio in the 1950s. He passed away aged 59 in September, 2006.
