Trivia

Robert Reed was written out of this episode. He felt that the plot involving hair tonic was implausible. When he began arguing with the producers over the script, studio security wanted to remove him from the set. However, Sherwood Schwartz would not allow it because he felt that it would be too distressing for the kids. Reed remained on the set to watch the filming of the episode, which would ultimately become the final episode of the series. Carol refers to Mike's absence in passing in the closing segment, in which the family returns home from Greg's graduation ceremony. She says to Greg, "We're so proud that you graduated with honors, Greg. Too bad your father was out of town and had to miss it." See more »
