  • Considine shows maturity. Yes he is NOT the boy from Disney. Is it any surprise that he could stay at home with dad for too much longer?

    This episode serves as Mike and Jeans' official rite of passage to adulthood. With deliberate skill and a knack for

    being able to keep a low profile, Mike builds a hifi (as was typical of kit builders in the day. After trial and error and overcoming quirks, Mike's labor of love is finished. It is done in good time just as Jean's patience wears out. Well simple as the plot is, the two young love birds trade in their portable phonographs so they can dance in the garage to the music that made their parents famous on a hifi console built to look as if it could have been ordered by their parents from a Montgomery Ward catalog.

    • While the town of Bryant Park still hasn't been mentioned thus far on the series, and won't be until the beginning of the third season, this episode is giving us subtle clues. At Mike and Jean's educational institution, a plaque can be seen within the grounds that is clearly marked Bryant High School, established 1917. Notice it says Bryant, not Bryant Park.

    • According to research in the archives of Don Fedderson Productions, this episode and the following two, had scenes filmed during the first week of January, 1961 which indicates that at this point in time, there was not much difference between filming and the eventual air date on ABC. Of course, this would change as the series progressed.

    • One of the voices of the fictional soap opera film that Bub and Jean watch on television called "Goodbye Charlie" features the vocal talents of actor William Boyett.

    • The tune that Mike and Jean dance to is "Moonlight In Vermont", which was Written by John Blackburn & Karl Suessdorf.
