Due to a controversy over its subject matter, this episode, a Jewish Hannukah special, was originally produced for season 2 (as production episode 2.5) to be broadcast in December 2000, but wasn't broadcast until November 2003, almost 2 years after the show's cancellation.
(Since the show wasn't picked up again until early 2005, this episode (commonly listed as 3.22), should ideally be in a season by itself as episode 4.1, and season 4 and on should really be season 5 and on.)
Similarly, a Christmas special, also considered controversial, was made for around the same time (production episode 2.3), to be broadcast in season 2 around Xmas 2000, but was not actually broadcast until season 3 just before Xmas 2001 (as episode 3.16). See more
Upon the arrival in Las Vegas, the MGM Grand and Luxor (pyramid) hotel/casino are shown to be on the same side of the road and relatively close to one another. In actuality these hotel/casinos are on opposite sides of the street from one another, and even then there is a major intersection between them. See more
