      • Clips from Show 2 of December 25, 1969 were incorporated into two of this show's quickies: the "Peeping Ben" quickie, in the sketch where Benny gets Erica Lynley to change the channel; and the first of the "Golden Shoot" bloopers (with Benny as Bob Monkhouse), in the bit with Erica, Louise English and Helen Tozer at home watching the 'telly'.

      • Portions of the Benito's musical number (with the June Taylor Dancers-derived can-can dance routine, set to a modernized arrangement of the Aram Khachaturyan composition "Sabre Dance") and "The B-Team" sketch (where Murdock was walking an imaginary dog and painting the van with the symbol of a foreign country whose embassy they were about to infiltrate), as well as the last two minutes of the "Brand Names" sketch, were cut from this episode when it aired on Comedy Central in the mid-1990's.

      • According to BARB, this show was seen by 14.28 million viewers on its original airing. It would be the last Benny Hill Show to reach that high in audience levels.
