Robert Donner appeared in the season three episode "Sideshow."
Anne Lockhart, daughter of actress June Lockhart, appeared in the season three episode "Captive Night."
Before the game, the announcer called the line-up. The first two names were Alan Cassidy (who was associate producer) and Bobby Steinhauer (Robert Bennett Steinhauer – supervising producer).
Also, the game was played at "Sherman Field" – named for producer and frequent writer Jill Sherman.
Some sources suggest that, due to a writers strike in 1981, these fifth season episodes were actually fourth season ones delayed by the strike. This does tally, as the fourth season was shorter than usual. (As a result, the series can occasionally be seen listed with four seasons).
