  • Trivia

    • This is more of a nitpick. I dont think I noticed the first time I watched the scene 30 years ago at age twelve...but if you closely watch the sponge ball routine where Bill Bixby is performing for the young boy and his grandfather, please note that Mr. Bixby was granted the luxury of tossing the sponge ball outside of the cameras frame, to save time and avoid the costly mistake of flubbing a move. Thus, again the question regarding "trick photography" being used to fool us must be asked. Since the ususal announcement regarding trick photography was not made at the begining of this episode, we cannot point the finger and say was! Or can we? --Contributor: californiamagic
