Trivia

This episode was one of only four on the eight "complete season" Paramount DVD sets that do not have laugh tracks. All four occur in the Fall of season 4 (discs 1 and 2). They were presumably originally broadcast with a laugh track. See more »

Goofs

Right after Gomer accidentally puts gasoline in the truck where Barney is sitting, his pants miraculously dry seconds later. See more »

A Classic Episode With No Laugh Track....
10 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a classic episode. What a Great One! I just noticed after seeing it on DVD that there is no laugh track. I was wondering if this was an experiment? It is a fairly dramatic episode for the sitcom, so maybe they thought that they'd try it with no canned laughter like usual. This show was never filmed with an audience anyway.

Interesting....

And it was neat to see three members of the Howard family in one show--Ron, Rance, His Dad, and lil' brother Clint.

Another beautiful DVD transfer. There are so many great old shows coming out on DVD from studios like Paramount--This one was originally Desilu, like Dick Van Dyke, Star Trek and many more until 1968 when Desi and Lucy sold out to Paramount Studios, which was right next door.
