  • Notes

    • On Tuesday, January 23, 1961, Mel Blanc almost lost his life in an automobile accident, when his little sports car went off the road on a dangeous curve atop a hill in California. Miraculously, he recovered, but was encased in a body cast in his bedroom for an entire year. During his early recuperation, Daws Butler, uncredited, filled in for Mel for five episodes, which were seen early in the second season in the fall of 1961.
