In one episode, Jean-Luc tells Carol that she looks like Chrissy from "Three's Company" (1977). Suzanne Somers really did play Chrissy on the show.

Many sets used in scenes inside the house were also used in _"Hogan Family, The" (1986)_ and "Family Matters" (1989).

This show was set in the same television universe as "Family Matters" (1989). In fact, Steve Urkel made an appearance in one episode.

Opening of show is at an amusement park which is by the ocean. The amusement park is Six Flags Magic Mountain, located in Valencia, California, which in reality is many miles inland from the Pacific Ocean.

When 'Patrick Duffy' agreed to return to "Dallas" (1978) in 1986, he had it put in his contract that he would get to be on another television show after "Dallas" ended. Honoring that agreement, this show was created specifically for Duffy, and it premiered the season after "Dallas" ended.

In one episode, J.T. tells Frank that "If you're watching Baywatch with your wife, you know nothing about marriage." Brandon Call played Hobie Buchannon in 4 episodes of "Baywatch" (1989).

After the 6th season ABC canceled the show but then CBS picked it up for its 7th and last season.

The series was nearly canceled after season 5. It was saved when they made Bronson Pinchot and Jason Marsden regular characters. This is why there were no new episodes from May 1996 through March 1997.

Sasha Mitchell was a last minute addition to the show and did not appear until the 4th episode of season 1.

Sasha Mitchell was eventually given his job back and did appear in the second to last episode but the series was canceled and his return was short lived.

J.T.'s initials stand for John Thomas.
