      • Don Grady relates the following story concerning the filming of this episode: "Bill Frawley was one of the funniest people I've ever known. He loved to make people laugh, and I was an easy target for him; he could make me laugh so easily". The scene that occurs after Chip's pet frog escapes and is hopping around in the bushes, has Bub and Robbie attempting to recapture it. "I was on one side of the Douglas house, in the bushes going on my hands and knees, moving towards the corner of the house making a frog noise. Bill was on the other corner side, coming towards the same corner as I was. He too is making the frog noise, so that each thinks the other is the frog. We had to part the bushes at the end of the scene and face to face, look at each other and go, "Ru-her". It was hysterical to look into that man's face! His face was so rubbery, and he knew that he had me. Each time we did it I would crack up laughing but I was supposed to be mad!". It took twenty-three takes to film it the way the Director wanted it; in the end Stanley Livingston and Frawley were put together in the same scene with Don Grady, who notes that Frawley loved every minute of making someone laugh. - Excerpt taken from the book "Meet The Mertzes" by Rob Edelman and Audrey Kupferberg [Renaissance Books, 1999].
