Floyd's original pageant song, "Oh, Hail to Thee, Miss Mayberry" is sung to the tune of the Christmas carol "O' Tannenbaum" more commonly known in the US as "Oh, Christmas Tree".
In this episode's epilogue, Opie's girl friend, Mary Wiggins, is seen in the barbershop making her the first in a very short list of females to have ever graced the inside of Floyd's. Ellie appeared briefly in Mayberry on Record, Aunt Bee in a couple of episodes (one of which was The Jinx), a female reporter in Crime Free Mayberry and, of course, the curvy and sweet smelling manicurist Ellen Brown in The Manicurist.
Josie Lloyd, who played the mayor's daughter Josephine Pike, would go on to play Lydia Pike in a later episode (with no indication that she was the mayor's daughter, even though the last names were the same). She also appeared as Lydia Crosswaith in Goober and the Art of Love.
