At the end of this episode, an announcer introduces a recap of the entire program, consisting of split-second repeats of the various sketches and cartoons (like fast forwarding on a DVD). However, after the Crackpot Religion cartoon, there are brief shots of two more cartoons (one involving a devil peeping out of the ground and three figures crucified to telephone poles behind him) that were not shown in the episode. (It is possible that these cartoons were cut before the show aired.) See more
Mr. Ken Andrews, of Leighton Road, Slough has concealed himself extremely well. He could be almost anywhere. He could be behind the wall, inside the water barrel, beneath a pile of leaves, up in the tree, squatting down behind the car, concealed in a hollow, or crouched behind any one of a hundred bushes. However we happen to know he's in the water barrel.

There are two versions of this episode, a monochrome kine-scope and 16mm film copy, thought to have been produced for the US AFRTS (Armed Forces Radio & Televison Service), were located in 2003. Named 'Chinese Ad Men' and marked "Not to be broadcast under any circumstances", they include previously lost material: five seconds from the Conquistador Coffee sketch referencing leprosy and cancer, and 33 seconds involving Jesus and Satan from the Crackpot Religions animation, bridging into Public Service Film No 42/6. The prints have the 30 second Shrill Petrol card segment removed. Sections of the Gilliam animation could be glimpsed during the end credits of the surviving color VT print, and the omission had long puzzled fans. See more
