  • Notes

    • This pilot marks the first appearance of one of the few long-running characters, Buddy Cole. The name Buddy Cole was taken from a character Tim Kazurinsky sketch. While in "The Turn Company" troupe, he wrote a skit that Scott played, and gave him the character of the same name. The origional name of the character was Charles "Buddy" Cole

    • The cabage head was made of real leaves. The foam one didn't come until Season 1 started.

    • The origional Pilot was shown on HBO as a two-hour special. It was only after the success of the pilot that the Kids signed a deal.

    • Bruce says that "Hey, you millionaires!", the first sketch of the pilot, is his father's favorite sketch, including all the seasons that came afterwards.

    • Not all of these sketches appear on the DVD, and "Best Of" tape.
