Executive producer Jean Doumanian was nearly fired just before the show. She argued with NBC executives about a sketch featuring Gail Matthius
as nun claiming to have had sex with Father Guido Sarducci. NBC boss Fred Silverman threatened to fire her and pull the episode completely. Doumanian finally relented. But the sketch was allowed to air two episodes later. See more
You know, one Halloween my boy Jim was a rabbit. He didn't want to be - he wanted to be a robot, but I didn't hear him too good. Jim's speech wasn't always real clear - I used to say Jim and his tongue weren't on speaking terms. Anyway, he loved dressing up for Halloween. He always dressed up as something tough. One year he was Spider-Man, the next year he was G.I. Joe, and the year after that he was a rabbit - but, like I said, it wasn't his fault. He said robot, I heard rabbit.
