The article "Sheriff Without a Gun" was first mentioned in season five's "TV or Not TV." In that episode, bank robbers posed as television producers producing a television series based on the article. Despite the fact that Andy typically does not wear a gun (like Barney and Warren) he does often use guns when on manhunts and other dangerous work and even once shot a man attempting to rob a service station.
One of the prizes Aunt Bee kept was the garbage disposal, but in "Lost and Found," she does not have it, and buys one.
In this episode it is mentioned that the Mayor is on vacation in in Hawaii. It seems odd that the Mayor would schedule vacation during Founders Day (typically a rather large event for Mayberry). The mayor's name is never mentioned but it doesn't seem likely that Mayor Stoner (last seen in season 3) would be out of town for a big even like Founders Day.
Aunt Bee states her birthday as March 17
With Warren going after Helen in his sleep, a flustered Helen locks herself in the jail! This is the only time we would see Miss Crump in the cell!
In this episode, Barney drives into Mayberry in his "new" car, a turquoise and white Edsel convertible. Andy inquires if the car is a '61 model. Barney replies that it actually is a '60 but it has a '61 grill. This is all totally wrong. The car is a 1958 Edsel. It has a 1958 grill and there was never a '61 Edsel. They started production with the 1958 model year and were discontinued after the 1960 model.
Sweet Nettie fetchingly stares right into the camera for an instant as she's delivering her dialogue to an off-screen Barney. Was this a goof or charm? You decide.
When Aunt Bee shows everyone the "missing" pin, Andy puts it on Bea's lapel. Later, when Warren and Goober are discussing the whole mess, the pin is sitting on the dining room table. When did Aunt Bee take the pin off?
Aunt Bee buys a garbage disposal, but in "Aunt Bee on TV," a garbage disposal was one of the prizes she kept.
Not only did she learn to drive, but Aunt Bea was the only main character who learned how to fly on the show.
It seems unusual that Aunt Bea is nervous around baby, because in the first episode she said "I raised all those kids".
This is the first appearance of the character of Howard Sprague.
The Darlings' fortune is all of $300
This episode marks the final appearance of the Darlings.
This episode marks the last time we see Goober's Cary Grant impression: "Judy, Judy, Judy, Judy!"
Jack Nicholson has the distinction of being the most decorated actor to grace the halls of hallowed Mayberry history - to date Nicholson has earned 3 Oscar awards for acting (One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest (1975), Terms of Endearment (1983), and As Good As It Gets (1998) and numerous other acting awards.
Notice Mr. Schwump, a non-speaking Mayberryite behind the fishtank admiring Old Sam.
Mr. Schwump sighting! He's apparently a member of the garden club.
Opie is the only one in the Taylor home that has his tonsils out.
