Although the series was still doing well enough in the Nielsen ratings, ABC decided not to renew it for a fourth season. ABC wanted all of their black and white shows to switch to color production.

The theme song has the following verses: "Cathy adores a minuet, / the Ballets Russes and Crepes Suzette." The Ballets Russes shut down before Cathy Lane was born. See more »
When hearing the Patty Duke Show theme song I may have been one of millions of young viewers who thought "What the heck are Ballet Roofs?" since we had no idea what Ballet Russes was. Similarly many of us also mis-heard lyrics of theme songs of other shows such as All In The Family (By The Wigglin' Millibalde was really Boy The Way Glenn Miller Played and Gee Are All Us Soured Grapes was really Gee Our Old LaSalle Ran Great) and The Flintstones (Though The Courtesy of WHAT?!?!?) ☺
