Did You Know?


Although this was the sixth episode broadcast in the fourth season, it appears that it had been intended to have been the first one. Beau De Labarre is introduced as a brand new student (even though he had already appeared in prior shows), and Kotter introduces himself as the new vice principal, which had already been established beforehand.
