Trivia

Due to Little Ricky being heavily featured in this episode, it wasn't filmed in front of a live audience in case the baby got fussy during scenes. Instead the recorded episode was played for an audience and their laughter was added in. See more »

Goofs

In Ricky's hilarious bilingual retelling of "Caperucita Roja" for Little Ricky, he pronounces the demise of the wolf - "Y el lobo se cayó, muerte, dead!" - and then gets so caught up in the heroine's relief and gratitude, he quotes her as saying, "Gracias señor lobo" ("Thank you, Mr Wolf"), before he corrects himself by having her say, "Gracias señor el hunter, gracias por matar el lobo" ("Thank you Mr Hunter, thank you for killing the wolf"), followed by his unique variation on the usual ending: "Y todo el mundo vivió happily ever after."
