This episode is largely a remake of "... And I Want Some Candy and a Gun That Shoots ..." which aired the previous season. The former episode was all too obviously based on the 1966 sniper massacre at the University of Texas in Austin, and the network declined to rebroadcast it because of its violence and the possibility it would encourage imitative behavior. So Leonard Freeman, writing his last episode, changed the motive for the sniper into distracting the cops from another crime (the kidnapping) and had his editors use as much footage from the earlier show as possible. Six years later, NBC used the same technique when it acquired the theatrical film "Two Minute Warning," filming an hour of extra footage about art thieves hiring the sniper to distract attention from a museum robbery (the film bombed).
