Trivia

John Hillerman was asked to read the part of Mr. Peacock. When he failed to show up for the reading, co-creator Jeremy Lloyd read the lines instead. He was immediately offered the role. When the pilot didn't sell, producer Garry Marshall instead offered Lloyd a part on his current series Happy Days (1974). Lloyd turned it down to pursue other projects. See more »
