Summary from TV.com
The title of this episode is a play on the common marketing disclaimer and movie title, *Batteries Not Included.
Full circle: Laura Mooney, who provided the voice of the little girl, Mandy, also provided the voice of the popular 80’s talking doll, “Cricket.” Before the doll’s name was finalized, it was originally going to be called “Spunky,” the name of Mandy’s cat in this episode.
