Trivia

Tod shows no interest in the fishing taking place all during the episode, leaving it to Jonah and Buz to fish. In real life, Martin Milner was such an avid angler he hosted his own radio show, "Let's Talk Hook-Up". See more »

an excuse to use Buster Keaton
9 February 2012 | by (St. Louis MO) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed seeing footage of Calabasas, CA in 1962 when it was a country village--now it is surrounded by suburbs. Residents of this part of L.A. County will be interested in this episode. John Astin's appearance as a gas station attendant was interesting. Otherwise, the two main characters' performances were as bland as usual, in my opinion. I liked Martin Milner in Adam-12 where his "just-the-facts" style made more sense. Clearly the idea here was to include Buster Keaton's slapstick talents but that kind of comedy was obsolete in 1962. Another criticism i have regarding this episode is that it was not filmed on location in Missouri. The hills are clearly covered with Southern California-type chaparral vegetation instead of oak forests typical of the eastern U.S. Of course you might say that this is nitpicking but Route 66 was touted as being a series shot on locations throughout the country (Boston, Phila., Texas, etc.).
