  • Trivia

    • The scenes of Larry and Moe talking in Larry's office are stock footage from He Cooked His Goose (1952). However, when Joe must interact with Larry in the same setting, new footage had to be filmed. It is easy to tell the two apart because the picture on the wall above Larry's filing cabinet changes and the one hanging behind his desk disappears.

    • In the original He Cooked His Goose, Mary Ainslee played the part of Belle. Ainslee did not reprise her role for this film, so the new footage of Belle is played by Connie Cezan.

    • When Moe shoots at Joe up the chimney, you can hear Shemp Howard's yell from He Cooked His Goose. In a cost-saving measure, Joe Besser's voice was not dubbed over Shemp's for authenticity.

    • In the beginning of the episode, when Millie says "I have a date with Joe", you cansee her mouth saying "Shemp" instead of Joe. Joe's name was dubbed over.
