Corrected entry: Major Healy is an astronaut - and an Army officer. In those days, astronauts had to be pilots with thousands of hours of experience in fighters and other high-performance aircraft and the Army did not (and does not) have any such aircraft, only helicopters and a few small propeller planes. Astronauts could be Air Force, Navy, or Marine Corps pilots, but not Army. In fact, according to the insignia on his uniform, Major Healy is not even in Army aviation, but the Corps of Engineers, which is responsible for bridges, roads, dams, etc.
Continuity mistake: Throughout this episode, the coat rack behind Major Nelson's front door alternates between having a coat of arms decoration in the middle or nothing in the middle. It seems this episode was filmed while a set change was taking place, since previous episodes feature a hand holding a bell as the center decoration for the coat rack and following episodes feature the coat of arms decoration.
Trivia: The Screen Gems sets of I Dream of Jeannie and Bewitched were right next to each other at the studio, and many of the actual sets and props were shared between the two shows. Both shows also shared Dick Albain, the Special Effects expert, who worked on the two shows for quite awhile.
