The episode was originally written for singer Glen Campbell, but his manager turned it down. Pat Boone was called to replace him.
Even though the Drysdale sell their house to Pat Boone, they never move out of their mansion, and Boone never moves in. Perhaps with the interest Drysdale charged, Pat decided not to move there. Apparently, the sale never went through.
Mrs. Drysdale's final price for their house was $10,000.00. The house was worth at least 100 times that. The original asking price offered was $250,000.00. But with the interest that is charged it amounted to the asking price offered.
Granny uses a tire pump as a blood pressure machine.
Sam knows who Dash Riprock is, but where the Clampetts are from, they are still getting the movies of the 1920's. Why is Hooterville more up to date than Bugtussle, since they are both small towns?
When Mr. Drysdale talks to the crow thinking it is his father reincarnated into a crow, it is not the first time on the show it has happened. In "That Old Black Magic," Mrs. Drysdale is dabbling in astrology, Granny thinks that a crow (actually a Mynah bird) is Mrs. Drysdale, who turned herself into one.
When Carol gives Jed her phone number, she gives him a number beginning with Crestview, but by 1969, this had become practically non-existant, and most shows were using phone numbers that started with 555.
Cratchit left the hair poltus on his head for a week and said how the other bank employees made fun of him. But when he got the poltus on, Granny told him he could come back the next day to have it taken off. Why did he keep it on so long?
In this episode, Drysdale says how his father was the president of the bank. However, he once said that he became president when he married Margaret because her father was chairman of the board. Also, Miss Jane says that when she started working at the bank, Drysdale's father was already gone. But Drysdale has said that he hired her.
Drysdale mentions that it was Cratchit who started the petition to have Christmas Day off, and Cratchit says that he whipped him for this. Neither of these could really be gotten away with. With the exception of hospitals, nursing homes, police stations, fire departments, and a few other places, businesses are closed on Christmas, including banks. And as for Drysdale whipping Cratchit, he could have gotten in massive trouble for that, since it is a form of assualt. Plus, bosses are not allowed to physically abuse their employees.
The Clampetts see a picture of Rock Hudson in their offices, but don't recognize him. However, when they first visited their movie studio, Mammoth Pictures, they saw a scene from a movie which starred Rock. Did they forget him after that?
Roy recorded his album on a day, and Elly said that his album would be released in a couple of days. However, it takes longer than a matter of days for a record to be recorded and released.
Jane says that they'd have to drive most of the night to get to Jasper County. But the Clampetts have said that it takes a couple of days to make it back home to the hills. Why can they get to Hooterville in less than 24 hours, but it takes nearly a week or more to get back home?
If you look closely at the hotel lobby, you see all of the lovely Christmas decorations, on the door, the clock, the elevator, and the railing of the stairs. But when Granny comes down the steps in her Goldilocks outfit, the decoration from the railing and the elevator have disappeared.
Jethro tells Miss Jane he wants to leave his hat on his head until the hair grows back. But in the next episode, he has a full head of hair. His hair must grow fast, considering it grew back in a week.
In "The Clampetts Play Cupid," Dash was hoping to settle down with Elly. But in this episode, he has mostly forgotten the relationship and gone back to being a playboy. He really got over Elly May pretty quickly.
Characters from all three of Paul Henning's shows, Green Acres, Petticoat Junction, and The Beverly Hillbillies appear together in this episode.
This is the third Thanksgiving episode of the series.
Jethro is bigger than Lester, but he borrowed his Clyde costume, and it fit perfectly. For a man with longer limbs, how did a smaller suit fit so perfectly?
Granny thinks Jethro is eating boiled string, actually spaghetti. But in an prior episode, Jane is cutting Drysdale's hair and he has something covering his outfit, and Jethro figures he is eating spaghetti and that is a bib. All the Clampetts knew what spaghetti was then, but now with Maria, apparently they forgot.
