The opening credits have been modified to reflect John McIntire as Charles Bickford's permanent replacement.
This is the last episode in which Charles Bickford appears in the opening credits. His last on-screen appearance was earlier this season in 'Ah Sing vs. Wyoming.'

Bickford died on November 9, 1967 from a blood infection.

This was the first appearance of real-life husband and wife John McIntire and Jeanette Nolan as Clay and Holly Grainger. It was originally thought that ailing Charles Bickford would soon be back, so no formal introduction of Clay and Holly's characters was done. Clay Grainger was filling in for his "out of town on business" brother John. But sadly, Charles Bickford died on November 9, 1967, and his character John Grainger was never mentioned again.
Although James Drury is credited in the episode titles, he does not appear in this episode.

Trampas tells Melanie he makes $30 a month.
When Melanie comes to the bunkhouse in the middle of the night to see Trampas, he's sleeping with his clothes, boots and hat on.
