    • Among the many characters who made their debut in this episode was Fargo North, Decoder (Skip Hinnant) who will be one of the major recurring characters in the series. For those who did not catch it as a youngster, the name is a pun on the city Fargo, North Dakota.

    • Melanie Henderson, a member of The Short Circus, recalls that the song Punctuation was the first Short Circus scene recorded. It was July 1971, and the toughest thing for The Short Circus was lip-synching the song.
