  • Trivia

    • In one scene, where Andy is in the back room, we see the framed newspaper headline of " Deputy Fife hero in cave rescue", referring to the episode in this season where he "rescued" Helen and Andy.

    • When Helen and Thelma Lou leave the theatre and are about to catch Andy and Barney driving off with the "Fun Girls" the billboard in the background behind them reads "Gary Grant."

  • Notes

    • In this episode Barney reveals to Andy that he can sew and crochet.

    • This is the only episode that Gomer and Goober appear in together. Prior to that Gomer just talked about his cousin Goober a lot.

    • This episode marks the first appearance of Goober Pyle although Goober was first mentioned in the episode "Man in a Hurry" which, incidentally, was Gomer's first appearance in the series. Before Goober ever appeared in the show, Gomer would mention that he was a great mechanic, put a V8 engine on his rowboat (that thing will do 80, now that's fast on water), takes him mother visiting on Sunday, and once got lost in a cave trailing a skunk - and that Goober may be ugly, but he ain't stupid.

    • Producer Aaron Ruben penned this episode. He also wrote #127 - Gomer Pyle, USMC. Years later, he became a writer, producer, and story consultant for Sanford and Son. During that show's first season, Ruben was the lone writer for all but one episode(#12-The Suitcase Case).
