The character of Cousin Spunky Spencer is an obvious reference to Cousin Oliver, played by Robbie Rist, a character introduced in The Brady Bunch's last season and credited with ending the show.

Although Jason Marsden voices Spunky, Robbie Rist voices the character of Brian Daly, an actor who played Dahl's older brother in the show 'Love That Doll'. See more »

Animation has changed so much in the last few years, it is hard to even define the borders that distinguish it from live action today. Yes, there was a "dead zone" from the 60s to the 90s, when quality actually declined because no one wanted to spend the bucks for hand-drawn cells, and computers had not yet come along to fill the gap. And now we are back in a Golden Age of sorts, where, astonishingly, some of the product coming out of the US is as good as the stuff from Japan. Or better. Against this backdrop we have the Baby Doll episode from the Emmy winning multi-year series. While just a tad more satirical then the usual episodes (which are almost all GREAT) an astonishing script and an UNFORGETTABLE ending take this single episode to the status of legend.
