This episode is parodied in A Very Brady Sequel 1996.
Kathy Lawrence was in "The Personality Kid" in which she and Marcia were friends. In this episode, it's mentioned that Kathy beats Marcia in cheerleading but it's not revealed whether she won honestly or not or if they still stay as friends.
Peter throws left-handed.
This is the first of two Brady Bunch episodes that refer to Benedict Arnold. In Everyone Can't Be George Washington, which aired 14 months later, Peter played the role of Benedict Arnold in a school play.
It's unclear how the Bradys were suppose to lug a heavy dunking booth like that down to the school, even without the water!
Marcia, Jan and Cindy are seen leaving for their ballet lesson. In this one, Cindy has a bright red tutu, in the "Don Drysdale" episode, they had pastel tutus, and in "Try,Try, Again", it was black leotards.
Near the end of the episode, Chief Eagle Cloud gives each Brady an Indian name:
Mike: Big Eagle of Large Nest
Carol: Yellow Flower with Many Petals
Greg: Stalking Wolf
Peter: Middle Buffalo and as a second choice Sleeping Lizard
Cindy: Wandering Blossom
Bobby: Little Bear Who Loses Way
Jan: Dove of the Morning Light
Marcia: Willow Dancing in Wind
Alice: Squaw in Waiting
You can totally tell that the first two shots featuring Mike, Marcia, and Peter and Carol, Jan, and Greg looking for Bobby and Cindy, and the shots used in the end, are just the same shots mirrored.
If the boys needed to rig a special battery hookup to the old phone they were using, why wouldn't the one Cindy answered have needed a new battery too? Each phone would be as old as the other!
I don't see how Mr. Brown could have driven off with the car and the trailer. because if you look at the scene where Mike turns around from looking out the jail cell window, you can see the car key hanging just outside of his pocket. Unless, there were two keys, and one was still in the ignition, then he should have gotten BOTH keys.
The Brady's are able to fill up the gas tank of the station wagon and buy soft drinks for six dollars and fifty cents.
Alice comments to Zacharia "..Is that the old saloon where you used to 'whoop it up'...?" How old was the prospector, anyhow? This was 1971 and the town was from the 1800s!
It seems odd that Mrs. Brady seemed to take the blame for the fact that her 2nd rewritten story wasn't representing her family's more diverse attributes. And, even more odd, Mr. Delefield never apologized to her for the fact that it was he who requested that she re-write the story, since she clearly had written the story just as the editor's would have liked from the beginning.
In the previous episode, the Brady's made an exhaustive, successful effort to save the local "Woodland Park". They protested, orgainized a march on city hall, they cleaned the park themselves on a regular basis and Mr. Brady even faced the prospect of loosing his job! But in this episode, when the boys were upset because they didn't have enough room to fly their plane in the back yard, Sam suggested they go with him and Alice on their date to "Highland Park" to fly the plane. The boys got very excited and ran off to prepare for the trip to Highland Park. Woodland Park was not even mentioned or considered.
One of his brothers' trophies that Bobby was observing was Peter's plaque that he received in the episode "The Hero" from the previous season.
After Peter jumped Bobby's checkers he said "You can't win now, but that wasn't true. Bobby was the one with the better setup. The red one nearest Bobby could be moved one to the right and block the checker that should have been kinged. The four checkers(2 black and 2 red) in a row near Peter, Bobby could moved the middle one. That would be one away from being kinged. Peter would eventually take one. Bobby could have used the king to get the others kinged and/or jump Peter's checkers.
In this episode when Kartoon King tells the kids to call and enter the contest the phone number is 555-6161. In season 5 the episode- Mail Order Hero, Bobby tells Joe Namath to call him at 555-6161. I guess that's their phone number. But wait! In season 2 the episode- The Not So Ugly Duckling, Jan says they are having trouble with their bell and to call their phone. The number was 762-0799.
At the ice cream eating contest, Kartoon King takes away every contestants spoon, including Bobby's. In the next shot of Bobby, you can clearly see his spoon has re-appeared next to his bowl. Then in the next shot, it is gone again.
The Bradys leave for the TV studio in the blue convertible, and return home (unexplained) in the brown station wagon. The goof is detailed in Barry Williams' book, "Growing Up Brady" thusly: When this show originally aired, a sharp-eyed "viewer" called producer Sherwood Schwartz to point out the error and ask for an explanation. He replied, "We blew it!" A few weeks later, those words are emblazoned in a headline in the National Enquirer. The "viewer," it turned out, was a reporter for the nationally-distributed tabloid.
In this episode Marcia, Peter and Jan were all in junior high school, but they should not have been in junior high school together. Since Marcia started High School 2 years later, Marcia should have been in 7th grade. Since Peter would have started high school 2 years after Marcia according to the last episode of the series and Jan was 3 years younger than Marcia according to Season 3 episode "My Sister's Shadow" Peter and Jan should have been in 4th and 5th grade in this episode.
