Trivia
Because the show had many young viewers and was scheduled after football games which tended to run overtime, six fifteen-minute episodes were produced. This was done rather than joining a full-length episode in progress, because that would disappoint children watching the program, and showing it later tended to put them up at a time parents may have considered too late for their children.

Goofs
During the opening credits you will occasionally see palm tree reflections in the windows. The series is set in Chicago, so that would be highly unlikely.
