  • Trivia

    • In this episode, Mike reveals that he was in the school drama club.

    • If the children went through the trouble of putting on a second performance so the entire Brady family could attend, why not allow all the other empty seats to be occupied by other children's family members who could not attend? Furthermore, if the point was to make a special exception for Cindy, then why not allow enough seats for all her family to attend the original performance? Certainly, there were a few extra seats at that performance.

    • The very premise of there only being enough seating for "one person from each student's family" to attend the school play and concert is ridiculous. There are 86 students appearing in the performance; even if every child could invite both parents, what school auditorium only holds 172 people? And a panoramic shot of the auditorium at the beginning of the episode clearly shows plenty of seating. Failing that, why not just put on the play twice?

    • Cindy wears Marcia's wings.

    • Brian Forster, here playing the elf), is the grandson of actor Alan Napier, known to millions of fans of the TV series "Batman" as Alfred, Bruce Wayne's butler. Brian Forster would later go on to play Chris Partridge #2 on The Partridge Family, replacing Jeremy Gelbwaks in that role.

  • Notes

    • Susan Olsen's (Cindy's) dresses are so short in this episode that the viewer can actually see her underwear a couple of times.
      Reply: While it's true that Cindy's dresses are extremely short, she is wearing frilly pants underneath, so it's not really like underwear. A lot of little girls did that in this time period.

    • The establishing shot used for Cindy's elementary school is of Dixie Canyon Avenue School, which is still located in Sherman Oaks, California (the San Fernando Valley).

    • Brian Forster is better known as the second Chris Partridge on The Partridge Family.
