Trivia

Jimmy Bates, the blond friend of Bud, usually played the role of Claude. In this episode, he was listed on the credits as Kippy, who was usually played by Paul Wallace. In the episode, Jimmy Bates has not one line in the scene, and his name is not spoken or mentioned at all in the story-line. Jimmy Bates made his first appearance as Claude in the 1955 episode "Bud the Snob." Paul Wallace made his first appearance as Kippy in the 1956 episode "Bud the Wallflower." Therefore, since Jimmy Bates had appeared as Claude before, he should have been listed as Claude not Kippy on the closing credits once again. See more »
