Trivia

The Barclays get a postcard from Pokenberry Falls in this episode which says, "Wish You Were Here!", the title of album #21. Also, a member of the church in Pokenberry Falls describes the town's state as the "Darkness Before Dawn", which was, of course, the title of album #25.

Pokenberry Falls was actully going to be Bedford Falls. The town that Wonderful Life takes place in.
- David

No! They were originally naming it Polkenberry Falls to make it a play off of Bedford Falls. They never had any intention to exactly copy the name of the town in It's a Wonderful Life!
- Christian A.

If you read the complete guide it did say that it was going to be Pokenberry Falls but the writers couldn't remeber the name of the town that a wonderful life took place in. So they came up with the Pokenberry Falls name and it stuck.

The motel in Odyssey that Ellis stays in, the Simple 6, is probably a play of a chain of motels, Super 8.
- Jonathan

The RFD part of the title is probably a reference to the show "Mayberry RFD", a short lived spin-off of the Andy Griffith Show.
- Jonathan

I think the spoof on the Siple 6 would be Motel 6 not Super 8.
- David

I ment to first say Bedford Falls in my post above.
