This is the first episode, in memory at least, in which Morticia outright says "I love you" to Gomez. Both have repeatedly emphasized that the other is "the man/woman I love, the only one I could ever love", but never have said "I love you".
In the closing credits, Death is simply listed as "Buck".
The last line spoken during filming of the episode(which was out of sequence) was "Tish, that's French"
Glenn Taranto (Gomez) was the last of the lead actors ever filmed for the series.
As with most episodes, this was filmed out of sequence. The last scene with dialogue filmed was the one where Gomez and Morticia are in their bedroom, saying goodbye. The last thing to be filmed was of Glenn Taranto (Gomez) doing some footage with the green-screen for the fight against Death.
When Lurch places the new bear in the foyer, it faces toward the camera, with its back to the door. However, when we see it a minute later, it has been turned to face the door as usual, but no one had turned it as Lurch had left.
Morticia is shown her to be very skilled at whittling, in which case she should have also been good at sculpting, which was very similar. However, it was shown a few episodes back that she was awful as a sculptress.
It's odd how much Colin Legge (who plays Uncle Spectre in this episode) resembles Christopher Shyer (Vlad Addams) in both appearance and voice.
Morticia mentions that she participated in her high school plays, however early in the series it is established that she never went to school.
When they are trying to get into the movie, Fester and MaMa go into the dungeon and tell Gloria they were looking for her. But they had just run into DeVille by himself, so they could not possibly have known Gloria was there.
This episode confirms what has been hinted previously: Morticia cannot act very well (referring to the character, not the actress). This was hinted in previous episodes where she took part in Gomez's play, or helped Fester make an ad for his marriage counseling business (she seemed very uncomfortable in the ad).
When the director is looking for a leading lady, he flips through a few pictures. He pauses on one of the pictures, and says "Sexy." The woman in that picture is Ellie Harvie, who plays Morticia.
When Thing throws the ransom note, we see it hit Gomez on the right cheek, near the jaw. However, when we next see him, he is massaging his right temple.
Watch for Gomez's outfit changing each time Fester brings out a new weapon in the duel scene.
The Frankenstein scene in this episode was Glenn Taranto's favourite to shoot, as mentioned in an interview.
Pugsley is inexplicably absent, although we do hear him scream at one point, even though there is a scene showing the entire rest of the family.
Wednesday was with Morticia when she announced that Cleopatra would be on a diet, so why does she later feed Cleopatra?
When Fester is in the movie theatre, he gets shushed every time he calls for Laurie. However, when Gomez and Morticia notice him, they speak to him in their normal voices (ie. not whispering) and yet they are not shushed. Either they were supposed to whisper, or the movie audience has horrible double standards.
This episode shows Gomez and Morticia reliving their youth/courtship which appears to have spanned a couple of decades. They appear as beatniks, hippies and then what appears to be Elvis and Cher. However, they met and married within the span of a few days, so none of this would have been possible.
Listen for about 30 seconds of the original theme song of The Addams Family when Lurch plays the piano on stage.
