George Schlatter did not produce the final season, but he won the rights to those episodes in a subsequent court battle.

Many of the original one-hour shows were re-edited into two half-hour programs in the early 1980s for syndication. Often, bloopers and outtakes were used to fill out a segment, especially during the joke wall sequence which occurred at the end of each show during the closing credits. New graphics were generated for credits on re-edited endings and run in the same sequence as the originals, but were in a different font. In a few instances, there was some overdubbing, specifically where Judy Carne's "NBC, beautiful downtown Burbank" was overdubbed with, "'ello, 'ello, beautiful downtown Burbank" when she played a switchboard operator on some of the earlier shows.
