  • Uncharacteristically for a sitcom of the era, this episode was filmed almost entirely outdoors.


  • Because Erin Murphy was ill, her sister Diane played Tabitha in this episode. The girls were fraternal twins and looked a good deal alike when they were younger, so they could alternate playing Tabitha. However, at this point in their lives, they no longer resembled each other as they once did - and viewers noticed. Reportedly, the producers received a lot of letters asking, "Who was that girl?"
  • Agnes Moorehead did not appear and received credit only.[2]
