Trivia

This is the first filmed episode featuring Cousin Oliver, Carol's 8-year-old nephew. His appearance in the show is widely considered by fans as the moment when the series "jumped the shark" (that is, irrecoverably went into declining quality). CORRECTION: This is not correct. Cousin Oliver was in the previous episode Welcome Aboard. See more »

Goofs

When Bobby and Cindy are playing checkers, Oliver is shown wearing a Cal. State Northridge t-shirt. But just before Arthur comes in, the words on his t-shirt are shown covered up with tape which matches the stripes on the sleeves. See more »
