Season 4 Trivia

  • Episode 16 - Barney's goggles contain no lenses (a common occurrence in eyewear on film) as to avoid reflections from studio lights.
  • Episode 32 - This was the pilot episode that led to the series "Gomer Pyle, USMC." It was the only time Sergeant Carter was correctly referred to by his rank of Gunnery Sergeant. In all subsequent episodes of the "Gomer Pyle, USMC" series he was incorrectly referred to as Sergeant.
  • Episode 16 - The motorcycle wasn't an "RJ 300 Motorcycle". That was made up. The bike was actually a prop based on a WWI Harley.
  • Episode 07 - This episode was one of only four on the eight "complete season" Paramount DVD sets that do not have laugh tracks. All four occur in the Fall of season 4 (discs 1 and 2). They were presumably originally broadcast with a laugh track.
  • Episode 03 - The military recruiting center scenes mark one of the very few times that African Americans appear on the show.
