    • NOTES (6)

      • The "Traffic Warden Can-Can" portion of the "Little Dimpton Street Party" number, the first half of the "Clown Striptease" sketch (where the Angels do a mimed striptease), and several quickies were cut by Comedy Central when they repeated this episode in the mid-1990's.

      • Thames repeated this episode on April 4, 1983.

      • Former Hill's Angel Susan Daly appears in the outdoor filmed sketches "The Video Machine" and the "Police vs Robbers" runoff sketch, uncredited. Also, Abigail Higgins makes an uncredited appearance in the "Masked Bandit" quickie sketch and Jo Thomas appears uncredited in the "Firing Squad" quickie as the would-be victim. In addition, while 'Tee Jay' was listed amongst the Angels in the end credits, the other dancing Angel (besides Sue Upton, Lisa Price, Samantha Spencer-Lane, Cheryl Mortimer and Lesley Young) was an uncredited Trudy Miller.

      • This episode was taped on January 29, 1982.

      • This was the last episode to list the individual names of Hill's Angels separate from the rest of the cast. Beginning with Show 44 and continuing to the end of the series, the cast credits would end with the line "and Hill's Angels."

      • "Learning All the Time" is a colour re-make of a sketch that appeared in one of the three black-and-white episodes from 1970-71. Apparently, Hill redid this and other sketches over the next several years as Thames decided not to repeat the three monochrome episodes. Hill felt the shows had good material and presumably, this was his way of having them seen again (though not repeated or shown at all in America until the release of the A&E DVD collection Complete & Unadulterated: The Naughty Early Years - Set One: 1969-1971, the three black-and-white episodes HAVE turned up in Australia on UK-TV).

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Sign on Music Store Door: P. Jones – Music Teacher

        This sign as featured in the "Little Dimpton Street Party" number, was a reference to Philip Jones, who was Thames Television's Head of Light Entertainment from its inception in 1968 until his retirement in 1988. He was also the "Philip!" referred to in many "blooper" sketches over the years.
