      • This is the very first episode we see Steve Douglas going off to play golf, a recreational hobby he will excel at with varying degrees of success throughout the run of the show. Like his alter ego, Fred MacMurray was an avid golfer. One problem being that in this episode, Steve looks far too business like (in suit and bow-tie) to appear to be going to play a game of golf.

      • While trying to locate the baby's mother, Bub talks on the telephone to Andy Whitman, the policeman who appeared a few episodes back in "The Delinquent" episode.

      • The surname of the character who has come looking for her misplaced leg of lamb (Bernardene Foote) is most probably a nod to a new staff writer on the show named Dorothy Cooper, who was married (for the third time in 1956) to Dr. Robert Foote and will now be credited as Dorothy Cooper-Foote from hereon.

      • Eagle eyed viewers with attention to detail will notice when Robbie goes across Mill Street, filming at the real-life location shows the difference in the length of the Douglas front yard (and additional steps down to the kerb) and the position of the footpath as compared to the studio mock-up at Desilu-Gower Studios.

      • Twin baby boys Jeff and Greg Lally are uncredited in this episode playing 'baby Betty' but are listed on the official synopsis sheet given out by Don Fedderson Productions.
