      • Hank Jones' new autobiography titled "Memories - The Show Business Side of My Life" [Penobscott Books, 2006] has a chapter on his appearances on "My Three Sons", and he very kindly includes a tidbit about yours truly in his anecdotes for which this author is forever grateful!

      • Lesley-Marie Colburn is uncredited in this episode as "Frieda" (See also Episodes # 148 and # 172). She also told me via email that they actually filmed a scene in the gymnasium as part of the pre victory dance, but notes that for some reason it was never put into the final print of the episode. She also noted that Former Mouseketeer Doreen Tracey, was also in this episode with her "...she is in the hallway, and is one of the Seniors, refusing to go to the Victory Dance".

        Finally, "Frieda" (Lesley-Marie Colburn) winds up going to the dance with the Senior "Tom" (Tommy Ivo) because none of the other girls will give in.This angers "Lissa" (Pat Morrow) who eventually forgives Robbie.

      • The name of Coach Philbrick in this episode is a nod to the show's Chief Set Electrician, Chester Philbrick.

      • Actor Hank Jones relates the following story on a segment from this episode: Hank reveals that scenes of his 'acting' with Fred MacMurray were often actually scenes of his 'reacting' to lines of dialogue as spoken off-camera by the show's script supervisor Adell Sliff! MacMurray's part in the scene was edited seamlessly into the episode later on.

        Hank also supplied me with a call sheet for this episode which was filmed the week before Christmas in December 1963. The call sheet lists several bit players that are uncredited including the aforementioned Doreen Tracy as Margaret, Kevin O'Neal as Jack, Linda Foster as Amber, Deborah Hunt as Chris and Nindy Masters as Gretchen. This call sheet notes that some of the girls featured are required to do their own hair before arriving at the studio!

      • Some print errors in the publicity material for this episode list the main title's character as Lisa, not Lissa and Strathemyer, not Stratemeyer.

      • Guest Star Patricia Morrow was about to hit the big time and co-star as Rita Harrington in the night-time soap opera, "Peyton Place" (1964).

      • Teenaged actress Heather Menzies, fresh from filming the 20th Century-Fox hit, "The Sound Of Music" has a walk-on role in this episode without any lines.

      • Ann Jillian is featured here but her surname in the Credits is spelt with two n's.

      • Features the song: "Stand Up And Fight", Lyrics by the show's producer Edmund Hartmann and Music by Don Grady.
