Most of the action for this episode uses sets intended for the spinoff. It takes place in California, away from New York and the Bartley House.
This episode was intended as a pilot for a series about Anthony Bardot (the actor), which would have been titled Pandora or Pandora and Friend. However, the pilot was never sold, and it remained a regular episode of The Ann Sothern Show. If the series had been picked up by CBS, it would've been executive produced by Desi Arnaz, as stated in 'Desilu: The Story of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz,' by Coyne Steven Sanders & Tom Gilbert.
