The song that Monty turns up loud is "Another Crossroads" by Petra off the album Back to the Street. We can assume that Monty is a Christian, so he would indeed be listening to the popular bands of the day. However, living in California and the overall tone we get from the Charater of Monty, I would assume that he would be listening to secular music more than Christian Rock. The producers were probably looking for something hard and logically chose Petra.

PARENTAL WARNING: The nightmare scene and the scene in the basement at Whit's End may be too intense for younger listeners.

Although this episode is given the following warning, many episodes down the line are far scarier and get by without any such warning. This may be perhaps because AIO received a lot of negative mail about this one from parents of frightened children.

Corrections of the two notes above:

The memorial didn't really play much of a role in "Angels Unaware" as much as it did "Gathering Thunder", when it was actually trashed and cleaned up.

For the second one, it is very arguable as to what is an "adult" episode, but certainly there were "adult" episodes before this one. There was "A Member of the Family", "Recollections", and the Family Portraits episode "In Memory of Herman".

Shadowpaw's Note: In reviewing your entry I double checked it for accuracy and came across an interesting discovery.

The premise of the story has many uncanny similarities to the children's book, "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" by Barbara Robinson.

(from AIOHQ)
One really disturbing fact about this episode is reported in The Complete Guide to AIO. It says that the "first part was written to be put aside in case Hal Smith (Whit) died. But we liked the story so much, we decided to finish it." They were originally intending to use the story as Whit's death if needed. As the episode that it is, I love it. It perfectly shows the issues and has an important purpose. But if they decided to use part one as Whit's death I would have been shocked. Can you imagine how all the people who had been so attached to AIO would have felt to find out the Whit, the central character everyone wishes they could meet, basically killed himself in an invention? I think it would betray a lot of what we know about Whit. Thankfully the episode was used where it was and they did not have Whit die when Hal Smith passed away in 1994, only a little over a year after this episode was broadcast.
- J

This episode received a lot of negative mail when it originally aired. As it ends with Whit flat-lining at the hospital, a lot of people were left wondering for the next week whether he was alive. It also aired near Thanksgiving, so many families were traveling and missed part 2, making the wait even longer for distressed kids.

You're both wrong. "It Began With a Rabbit's Foot" was the last episode Hal Smith recorded before he died. This was the last episode of their first day of recording. All the actors went to a hotel or went home if they were close enough. Hal Smith died that night sitting in his reading chair while listening to his favorite radio show. Because "It Began With a Rabbit's Foot" and "It Ended With a Handshake" Was kind of like a two-part episode, they had Whit running errands in the next show and in the next season,(Wish You Were Here!)they explained that Whit had gone on an expedition to the Middle East to cover for Whit until they found a replacement actor for Hal Smith.
- Christian A.

Actually in the complete guide it does say that the War of the Words was Hal's last episode.

This episode likely was inspired by two previous episodes. The first was The Mortal Coil Part 1, where we hear a quick previously unheard line where Whit and Jenny are introduced to each other (that line is used in context in this episode). The second episode that likely provided inspiration was For Whom The Wedding Bells Toll Part 1, where Jack says that his friends stole his girlfriends away, and that's how Whit met Jenny (in this episode Jenny and Jack date before Whit entered the picture).
