  • Notes

    • Eggs were apparently a hot commodity in California in 1957, with the McCoys and Poulsons both selling them at 60 cents per dozen. At that time, a person could purchase over 2 gallons of gas for about the same amount of money.

  • Allusions

    • Sears, Roebuck: Although known simply as Sears since the 1970s, the catalogue and retail business was universally known as Sears, Roebuck and Co. since the 19th century, when Richard Sears created a partnership with Alvah Roebuck in 1893.

    • Charlie McCarthy: Charlie was the most enduring and popular puppet character of ventriloquist Edgar Bergen (1903-1978). The two of them appeared together for five decades, from Rudy Vallee's 1937 radio show to 1979's The Muppet Movie.
