    • NOTES (1)

      • A Note About The Cast: As records for this show are incomplete, scattered and often inaccurate, pending a DVD release or a re-airing of episodes, the five main cast members will be listed as stars in every episode : Troy Donahue, Van Williams, Lee Patterson, Diane McBain and Margarita Sierra. Although, technically (according to available sources), the two ladies don't qualify as stars based on number of appearances and billing, all five were in most of the show's publicity shots and all five are remembered as stars from the show's all-too-brief run to glory - so that's how we'll remember them here.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Sandy: Hello, Sherlock Hawkshaw!

        "Sherlock Hawkshaw" is perhaps best remembered as the name Mickey Daniels took when imagining himself to be a master detective in the silent 1924 Our Gang comedy, The Mysterious Mystery. However, the name - from the common American slang term hawkshaw (meaning detective) - appeared even earlier in Bud Fisher's 1921 silent, animated Mutt And Jeff comedy short, Sherlock Hawkshaw and Company - which, in turn, borrowed from Gus Mager's 1913 Hawkshaw the Detective comic strip.
