[show]In the first season, Bud Abbott and Lou Costello had a pet chimp named Bingo the Chimp. Costello didn't particularly like Bingo and apparently Bingo sensed it, because while they were filming a scene one day, Bingo turned and bit him. Costello demanded that Bingo be fired, and since his company was producing the show, Bingo was gone the next week and was never mentioned in the series again.
- Lou Costello owned the show; Bud Abbott chose to work on salary.
- Although Hillary Brooke appears a lot taller than Lou Costello in the show she is in reality only one inch taller. She wore high heels to make it appear she was taller.
