  • Trivia

    • As was quite standard to TV at the time, there was often more meeting the ear than the eye when music was performed. In front of the funeral home, Jim appears to be playing both rhythm and electric lead guitar at the same time. When he plays with Andy and Barney in the jail, his guitar also magically sounds like an electric. And during his jam session with Bobby Fleet and His Band with a Beat, the drummer manages to get snare drums, bass drums, and cymbals with nothing more than a couple of drum sticks tapping on the bars of the cell!
