  • Trivia

    • This episode introduced a new on-going member of the Stone family, Coca, an 18 month old standard poodle.  While both of his parents are standard poodles, his owner and trainer (Don Wallace), says: "Coca is probably a freak throw back to medieval history.  He stands 42.5 inches high, weighs 135 pounds, and has bushy brown hair all over.  He resembles a lion from the front, but by nature is as gentle as a lamb."

      Mr. Wallace insures Coco for US$100,000 (as of July 21, 1961).  Coco travels to work in a white, air conditioned truck equipped for his comfort and safety.
