    • Vito Scotti played the role of Captain Domenic Lopez in this pilot episode but for the rest of the series he played Captain Fomento.

It comes after an introduction instead of coming at the very beginning, the music is a little slower and less lively, and it shows Sister Bertrille, Sister Sixto and Sister Jaqueline walking to the convent instead of showing Sister Bertrille flying.

    • The first episode is actually an hour long instead of the typical half-hour.

    • The series, and particularly this two-part episode, was based on the book The Fifteenth Pelican by Tere Ríos.
