    • NOTES (2)

      • Despite, an overall good rating for the season ABC cancelled the series due to conflicts with Ernest Thomas, Fred Berry and Haywood Nelson. According to an article on TVParty, the actors demanded more money and constantly walked out during rehearsals.

        Another reason is the fact that the show was shifted during this season as it would loose viewers from the lead in show and then viewers would return for the show afterwards.

      • Incomplete guest list.

    • ALLUSIONS (2)

      • Little Earl does an impression of stand-up comedian, Steve Martin. Martin released an album titled Let's Get Small in 1977. Martin would soon quit the stand up gig, and focus on his acting career. Martin never returned to being a stand up comedian.
