Episode Notes
The role of J. Calvin Frazier was written as a white Jewish man before Jaleel White took the role.

Was developed as a one hour show.

Soleil Moon Frye was slated to be with the cast as a regular and appeared on promotional material. She was written out of the show for unknown reasons. This episode upset some people since J (Jaleel) asked Robin (Soeil) where the G-Spot was. One writer stated he never wanted to see Urkel ask Punky Brester this question ever again.

The line about Marcus being the "Black JFK" was edited out of the final pilot. It does appear in previews.
