      • The description for this episode, found on cable guides in 2009 states: 'Steve deals with a series of family crises.' That would be a more accurate summary of the episode, covering both the main plot and subplot. Even though William Demarest gets many scene stealing moments in drag, it is definitely a Fred-Steve episode. He even gets to play the saxophone in two different scenes, something that Fred MacMurray excelled at in real life.

      • Obviously, the writer thought he could get laughs having William Demarest appear in drag. Demarest's early days in entertainment involved working for the vaudeville circuit which would've used a gag like this. Other famous vaudevillians who resorted to drag for laughs include Milton Berle in his various television appearances and Joe E. Brown in the film 'Some Like It Hot.'

      • Furs for this episode were provided by Furhman's.

      • A subplot of this particular episode has Chip and Ernie coming down with the Chicken pox and being confined to bed by their local family doctor.

      • Director Fred De Cordova's voice can be heard as a Man, and the Choreography for this episode was by Joan Stephens, who in reality was regular character actress Joan Vohs, who was married to the show's Production Supervisor John G. Stephens.

      • Tina Cole as Katie sings a song with the Douglas family musical combo. The featured song is the popular Petula Clark hit of the 1960s "Downtown" which had Music and Lyrics by British singer-songwriter Tony Hatch.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Apple Annie is the name of a popular Damon Runyon character from a Frank Capra film in 1933 called 'Lady for a Day' with celebrated character actress May Robson in the role of Annie. Capra revisited the character and story in 1961's 'Pocketful of Miracles' but this time Bette Davis took on the role of Annie. Also, Lucille Ball borrowed the old Runyon plot for an episode of her third sitcom 'Here's Lucy' which was entitled 'Dirty Gertie' in 1972.
