  • Trivia

    • In Barney's yearbook the pictures of Andy and Barney are actual pictures when the actors were young.

    • In the yearbook, Barney's middle name is shown to be Milton, but throughout the series, Barney refers to himself as Barney P. Fife.

    • In this episode, we learn Andy's full name is Andrew Jackson Taylor and Barney's is Bernard Milton Fife

    • Thelma Lou is curiously absent during this episode. The class reunion episode from season six implies that Thelma Lou was a member of Andy and Barney's graduating class.

    • There is a brief reference to Barney's father in this episode. Andy's response seems to indicate that his father has passed away. Barney's mother actually appears in a season one episode. Andy's parents are never mentioned in the series.

    • The banner at the reunion says "Welcome Class of 1945." In the sixth season, the episode "The Return of Barney Fife" took place at another class reunion with a banner "Welcome Class of 1947."

    • While the high school was usually referred to as "Mayberry Union High", as in this episode, it was also called "Mayberry Central High"
