- Hey, It's That Guy!: Besides Dorothy and Blanche, Mr. Drummond was the next-door neighbor and Gopher was Carol's boyfriend.
- The Other Darrin: Maude's daughter Carol was played by Marcia Rodd in the All in the Family episode "Maude", a Poorly Disguised Pilot for the show, while Adrienne Barbeau took over the role for the actual series.
- Likewise, during the final season, Kraig Metzinger replaced Brian Morrison as Carol's son, Phillip.
- Unintentional Period Piece: Like all of Norman Lear's contemporary productions, this is a very 1970s show in every respect.
